Creative Ways to Decorate Your Guest Bedroom

It doesn’t take much to decorate your guest bedroom and make it more vibrant. It just requires a little bit of creativity, proper furnishing, and decor across the room. Rest assured, it’s a lot simpler than it seems. The goal is to make it cozy for your guests while also being pleasant to the eye. So, make yourself comfortable, and take a look at these simple yet creative and handy tips we prepared for you.

Get a new bed

The bed is the first to be noticed and dictates the overall aesthetics of your guest bedroom. If the bed in your guest room is already outdated and looks a bit messier than you’d like, it might be a great time to get a new one. Luckily, there are plenty of affordable furniture options are available nowadays – like CORT Furniture Outlet.

Whether you decide to keep your old bed or get a new one, an important tip to keep in mind is to make sure that the size of the bed fits the room. The last thing you want when doing a room makeover is for the bed to take over the entire guest bedroom, leaving next to no space for travel bags. To prevent this, take some time to measure your space to see if a bed or sleeper sofa is the best option for you.

Make your guest room thematic

Why not put extra effort into your guest room and make it more interesting? Your friends and family would enjoy their time in a thematically furnished room. For example:

  • Bed linen, pillows, cover, and blanket in compatible warm colors.
  • Small dream catcher hanging near the window/whenever you want it.
  • Vintage, timeless furniture
  • Wood totem souvenirs.
  • Wood lamp.
  • Fabric wall tapestry showcasing natural landscape.
  • Walls painted in a compatible neutral color.

Add extra bedding

You never know when it’s going to get cold outside. Or maybe your guests will require an extra cover. Consider adding a decorative basket or a wardrobe in a guest room that can hold spare linens, extra cover, and blankets.

Throw more pillows on a bed

Besides sleeping pillows, add cute throw pillows to enhance the color scheme in the room. That way, the bed will seem more vibrant and comfier than before.

Invest in a bedside table

Small bedside tables level up the comfortable feeling in your room. After all, your guests will definitely make good use of it. They’ll need a place to leave their phone, favorite book, etc. Consider a bedside table with an extra drawer in case they have additional things that need storage.

Place a mirror in the room

A mirror makes every room seem more spacious, and it’s better for your guests to have their own mirror than to wait until a bathroom or vanity is free.

Add a lamp, pictures, and souvenirs

Even smaller art pieces are an excellent touch-up to the overall room aesthetics. Plus, they don’t cost a fortune. A picture here and there and a souvenir on a table make even the plainest-looking rooms come to life. Finish the decor with a cute lamp.

Add a rug

There’s nothing that completes a room like a good rug. So, take a good look inside your guest room and decide which rug would fit the most. Pick the pattern or color that ties all elements in the room together. For instance, if the walls are white, add a dark, cool-toned rug (shades of purple, plum, navy, etc.). Dark warm tones go well with beige walls.

Add Comfortable Seating

Want to make a guest room more comfortable? Add additional seating.  Inviting accent chairs are convenient supplementary furniture that can make anyone’s coffee or book-reading time way more cozy.

Decorate your guest bedroom with a diffuser

The electronic diffuser that looks good in a guest room while keeping it fragrant for hours. Just choose the shape and color you like the most and add one of these scents:

  • Sandalwood
  • Mint
  • Pine forest
  • Apple Cinnamon
  • Apple Vanilla
  • Citrus

Place an electronic diffuser on a bedside, together with 2-3 bottles of essential oils. Have scented candles ready in case your guest prefers them more.

Consider indoor plants

Plants aren’t mandatory, and yet, they somehow complete the interior. It doesn’t have to be a super expensive, humongous plant. A few succulents or cactuses are just enough. If you prefer leafy indoor plants, consider some of these:

  • Spider plant
  • Snake plant
  • Money Tree
  • Philodendron
  • Dragon Tree
  • Yucca

What to do with stuff when redecorating?

In case you’ve decided to refurbish a guest room, there are a few things to have in mind:

  • Think about what you’re going to do with old furniture: sell, throw away, give away, maybe recycle.
  • If there are things you would like to keep, you’ll also need a place to store your things while you update. Short-term storage might be the solution than a garage or basement. The storage isn’t only spacious and much safer but clean, pest-free, and accessible to you at all times.
