When creating an excellent guest bedroom, include soothing colors, lamps, and homey touches.

You may expect to welcome visitors back to your home this summer. Designing an inviting, luxurious guest bedroom is one of the best ways to help your guests feel comfortable and welcome in your home. Whether you already have a designated guest bedroom or are planning to remodel a room and turn it into a guest-ready residence, the following design tips can help you create the perfect retreat for visiting friends and family. 

Update the Basics

One of the quickest ways to remodel a room and make an incredible impression is to update the basics. Updating or changing the floors, paint, ceiling, and other basics first can do a lot to make a room look new. 

In particular, neutral soothing tones on your floors and walls can create a guest bedroom that your guests will instantly feel comfortable in. Calming browns, tans, greens, and blues are almost universally liked colors that provide you with lots of design flexibility. 

Select the Best Lighting

Your guest room will be where your visiting loved ones rest up when they visit, so you want the room to be relaxing and tranquil. You can create the ideal ambiance with soft lighting that helps your guests unwind. 

You may consider adding a dimmer switch for the overhead lighting and lots of lamps so your guest can decide how much light they want on at one time. 

Provide Plenty of Storage Space

Providing a dresser or closet where guests can unpack and store their clothing is one way to make them feel instantly welcome. Adding hangers, closet organizers, and drawer dividers can additionally help your guests stay organized while they stay with you. You may also include an iron and ironing board in the closet, so your guests can tend to their clothes on their own time.

Add or Update Your Guest Bathroom

If a guest bathroom is attached or adjacent to the guest bedroom and reserved for their use, your guest will enjoy an especially luxurious stay. You can also include soap, toothpaste, and shampoo to welcome your guests and make sure that they have all the comforts of home while traveling. 

Stick to Light Colors

Light colors and calming tones are great for the large surfaces of your guest bedroom. You can make your guest bedroom appear and feel larger and more luxurious by sticking to these light colors for your floors, walls, duvet, and window coverings. With smaller design elements, such as throw blankets, rugs, and artwork, you can add bright pops of color. 

Focus on Finishing Touches

Ultimately, the little details are what makes a guest bedroom feel like a home away from home for your guest. Pay attention to elements like bedding, artwork, rugs, and storage to create a cozy atmosphere. If you have the funds in your budget, you can add even more comforts for your guests, including a mirror, TV, armchair, and stocked bookshelf. 

These design tips will help you turn a drab, simple guest bedroom into a room that is even better than a hotel room. By implementing these improvements, you may find your guest bedroom in high demand from your loved ones this summer.
