If you’re expecting overnight visitors in your home over the holidays, it’s probably time to get your guest room into shape. If your guest room hasn’t been used in a while or is simply in need of some updates, now is the perfect time to make some upgrades. Let’s take a look at five easy ways to make your guest room homier and more welcoming before the busy holiday season.

#1: Fresh Coat of Paint

Few updates are as easy as a simple, fresh coat of paint for your guest room walls. In general, neutrals such as warm gray, cream or tan are versatile and timeless. If you want something with a little more color, a soft yellow, seafoam green or soothing blue are also great options.

#2: New Mattress

A new (and upgraded) mattress could be a great investment in improving your guest room. Welcome your friends or family for the holidays with a mattress that offers excellent support to make their vacation a comfortable one.

#3: More Storage

If your visitors will be staying more than a night or two, chances are they’ll need a place to keep their belongings. If you think your guest room might be short on storage space, consider adding additional storage in the form of a new dresser (if you have space), under-bed drawers or simply some shelves on the walls. A bed frame with built-in drawers, such as the Welden Queen Bed, could also be the perfect two-in-one upgrade for your guest room.

#4: Warm Rug

Give your guests something soft and warm to step onto when they get out of bed in the morning. Especially if you have hardwood or tile floors that might get chilly when it’s cold outside, a cozy rug is the perfect inviting touch to add to your guest room. Plus, you can take this opportunity to add a pop of color and texture to your guest room décor with an area rug that features a stylish pattern.

#5: Better Lighting

During the winter, the days are short and the nights are long. Make sure your guest room has plenty of lighting options so your visitors can get the most of their space. A lamp on each side of the bed, along with ceiling lights of some kind, is ideal.

With one or more of these updates, you can have your guest room looking fresh and inviting, ready to accommodate your guests for the holidays.

Ideas for Home Offices that Double as Guest Rooms

Featured Image: Barrington Faux Leather Daybed w/Trundle from The RoomPlace

If you have only occasional overnight visitors in your home, it may not make sense to reserve a whole room for accommodating them. If you don’t have an extra room to spare in your house, a dual-purpose guest room is a practical idea. Many people use their guest rooms as a home office to make the space more functional and practical.

In a case like this, your workspace needs to quickly and easily transform into a welcoming guest room when you have company—so you’ll need some tricks up your sleeve. Let’s take a look at a few tips and ideas for easily transforming dual-purpose guest rooms so you can welcome visitors to your home.

Klein Queen Sleeper Sofa from The RoomPlace

#1: Sleeper Sofa or Daybed

Obviously, your guest room will need a bed. But you still need space for your desk, chair and any office supplies you need in order for it to be a comfortable workspace. One of the best solutions is choosing a bed that can fold up, slide away or otherwise hide when not in use. A few good options include sleeper sofas and daybeds. Sleeper sofas feature a bed frame and mattress inside that folds out to create a full-size bed for your guests. Daybeds are essentially beds that look like sofas, and often feature pull-out trundles for additional sleeping space. Either way, it’s a perfect solution for your dual-purpose room.

#2: Desk

There are a few things to consider when choosing a desk for your home office/guest room combo. If it’s a sizeable room, you may have the space for virtually any desk. But if you’re working with a limited area, there are a few tricks you can follow to make the space work without feeling crowded:

  • Utilize corner space. A diagonal desk in the corner of the room can give you a functional area without taking up as much floor space as a traditional desk shape. If all you need room for is a laptop and a lamp, this is perfect for you.
  • Choose a slim desk design. A sleek desk with a slim profile takes up as little space as possible while still giving you a nice surface to use.

  • Find a comfortable office chair. Not only do you need a comfortable desk chair if you’ll be using your office regularly, but be sure to choose a chair that can double as an accent chair for the room. This is another way you can leverage dual-purpose furniture to preserve floor space and make it easy to transform your office into a welcoming guest room. A stylish cushioned chair gives your guests a place to sit while winding down for the night.

#3: Privacy Screen

To give your guests a sense of privacy and a space their own, a privacy screen is a great idea—particularly if you’ll still need to use the office section of the room while they’re staying with you. A screen or partition also serves to keep the bedroom visually separated from your office area when you don’t have guests.

#4: Shelves & Storage

Make use of wall space in the room to keep as many items as possible off the floor but within easy reach. Wall cabinets or built-in wall storage are ideal, so you can quickly store any office materials to make room for your guests. Under-bed storage options like pull-out drawers or totes are also great for storing your visitors’ belongings if needed.

6 Steps to Staging Furniture When Selling Your House

Heritage Gray 3 Pc. Living Room from The RoomPlace
Featured Image: Heritage Gray 3 Pc. Living Room from The RoomPlace

Whether you’re selling your own home or a client’s, preparing a house to be sold presents several challenges. You want your home to sell quickly and for the highest price possible, which means ensuring the property appeals to many buyers.

One of the best things you can do to make your home sell quickly at your desired price is to stage it with beautiful furniture. Homes staged with attractive, appealing furniture and décor are proven to sell faster—and often for a higher price—than their non-staged counterparts.

Why? Staging makes it easier for potential buyers to imagine living in the home. Plus, in the age of online real estate listings, well-staged photos really pop and stand out compared to other homes, enticing more people to look at your house.

#1: Remove the clutter.

Before you worry about arranging furniture, the first step in staging is removing clutter and personal belongings from the house. Knick-knacks, family photos, wall signs, toys, and other small or customized items should be taken down, boxed up and stored elsewhere—not in the home’s closets, since prospective buyers will be looking there, too. It’s best to start with a decluttered space that’s as simple and versatile as possible, so buyers can envision living there immediately.

#2: Deep clean.

Second, maximize the house’s appeal by cleaning it thoroughly. Other than the obvious spots like the bathroom and kitchen, make sure to address any neglected areas, such as dusty light fixtures, closets, beneath rugs, gaps next to appliances, etc. If you have pets, make sure you take care of any pet odors that may be lingering. Launder all fabrics, have your carpet cleaned (professionally if possible), and air out all rooms of the house by opening windows.

Don’t forget about the exterior of your home when addressing this step. Curb appeal will attract more buyers. If possible, try to: power wash your house’s siding, clean the windows, mow the lawn, trim any overgrown bushes or plants and make sure flower beds are weed-free.

#3: Prioritize staging by room.

In case you don’t have the budget or time to stage every room of the house, focus on the rooms that have been shown to have the biggest impact on how well your listing does. Start with the living room—it’s essential. Next, stage the master bedroom, then the dining room and kitchen. Additional bedrooms are the lowest priority.

#4: Thin out your furniture.

Once you’re ready to stage your furniture, start by removing some of it. Keeping only the essentials will make each room feel bigger and further reduce the appearance of clutter, which will appeal to buyers. Obviously, you’ll want to remove any outdated or damaged items first, replacing them with new furniture if needed.

When staging your living room, for example, stick with a high-quality sofa, a loveseat or accent chairs, coffee table and an appropriately sized rug to anchor the furniture and give the space a cohesive look. Simple, contemporary pieces are best since they offer versatility and mass appeal—you want the space to look stylish yet timeless, so try to avoid designs and colors that are very trendy.

#5. Utilize the “floating” technique.

Move furniture away from the walls so that it “floats” towards the center of the room. This design technique helps the space appear bigger yet more stylish and intimate. Arrange chairs and couches facing each other to create a cozy vibe.

#6: Add some final touches.

Small finishing touches add color and life to increase your listing’s chance of success. Consider final additions of things like bowls of fruit, fresh-cut flowers, potted plants, neatly folded towels, a new welcome mat on the doorstep, etc.

With these home staging tips, you’ll be well on your way to enhancing your listing and enticing potential buyers in no time.

Furniture Ideas for Your College Dorm or Apartment

Skyler Sofa Bed by Scott Living from The RoomPlace
Featured Image: Skyler Sofa Bed by Scott Living from The RoomPlace

Summer vacation is winding down and your next (or first!) semester of college is on the horizon. Whether you’ll be in a dorm or renting an apartment, one thing’s for sure: you’ll be needing a few pieces of furniture to make the space your own.

The challenge comes in finding affordable furniture that’s comfortable and space-conscious—not to mention durable enough to survive your roommates. That’s where we come in. Let’s take a look at some of our best dorm furniture ideas.

#1: A Dual-Purpose Bed

In a small place like a dorm room or a shared apartment, floor space is everything. When shopping for furniture that will fit your smaller space, look for items that serve a dual purpose. This is an especially good idea when it comes to choosing your bed, as it will likely be the biggest piece of furniture in your room. These are just a few ideas:

Barrington Beige Linen Daybed w/Trundle from The RoomPlace
Image: Barrington Beige Linen Daybed w/Trundle from The RoomPlace
  • Daybed: One great option is a daybed. From futons to pull-out trundle beds and sleeper sofas, daybeds have the look of a sofa with the added functionality of a bed. Use it during the day to lounge, and simply fold it down when you’re ready to sleep. This is the ultimate way to save floor space in your apartment.
Catalina Chestnut Full Platform Storage Bed from The RoomPlace

  • Storage Bed: Finding ways to store all your clothes and belongings in a small dorm or apartment room can be difficult. That’s why it’s a smart idea to choose a bed that also functions as a dresser—that’s where a storage bed comes in. With built-in storage under the bed frame, platform beds are super practical for your college living needs. Another alternative is adding pull-out drawers under a traditional bed frame.
  • Loft Bed: Another space-saver that’s perfect for a dorm is the loft bed. A loft bed features a built-in desk that doesn’t take up extra floor space, giving you a convenient spot to study.

#2: Stylish Seating

A chair is another essential piece of furniture for college living. Whether you need a place to sit at your desk and do homework or a comfy spot to relax after a long day of classes, a stylish arm chair is the perfect solution. When you’re looking for comfort, affordability and a space-conscious size, look no further than these ideas:

Tasia Red Accent Chair from The RoomPlace

  • Bold Accent Chair: A boldly patterned or brightly colored accent chair adds a perfect touch of personality to your space. Plus, an armless option doesn’t take up too much space, and can also function as a desk chair.
Down Low Gray Swivel Chair from The RoomPlace

  • Swivel Chair: A low swivel chair is a great place to sit down and relax, whether you like to play video games, read a good book or just hang out with your roommates.
Coco Office Chair from The RoomPlace

  • Office Chair: An office chair delivers practicality, but that doesn’t mean you have to skimp on style. Express yourself with a chic desk chair upholstered in faux fur, or go classic with a durable faux leather office chair.

#3: A Space-Conscious Desk

You may not have a lot of space to work with in your dorm or apartment, but chances are you still need a workspace for studying, doing homework and more. That means a functional desk or small table is a must. Space-conscious laptop desks are a great option, along with modern desks that have a slim profile. If you’re living in a shared apartment, the dining room table can also be used as a desk when needed.

With these college apartment furniture ideas, your space is sure to be just as stylish as it is functional.
