A guest room can be its own space but sometimes it is also shared a title with a home office or den. Even if the guest room isn’t a spare bedroom it can make guests feel right at home with a few essential design choices and essentials. Creating a cozy and comfortable room for guests is the sign of a good host.
Having a spare bedroom just for guests is a luxury many homes don’t have. The spare bedroom may have been converted to a home office, crafting space, or kids’ playroom. Transforming the space from its everyday function into a guest room can be easy if you have the right essentials.
If the room is primarily used for other purposes, a traditional bed might not be the best use of space. There are a few options. A Murphy bed could be used. When it is not folded down, it will look like another piece of furniture. Another classic option is the sofa bed. Older model sofa beds were notoriously uncomfortable with a support bar running horizontal under the mattress. Ouch! Today’s sofa beds are much more comforting both for sitting and sleeping.
A light for reading next to the bed, an alarm clock and a pitcher of water with a glass are other guest room essentials. Hanging a mirror in the room will allow your guests to get ready. Extra pillows and blankets are essential to your guests’ comfort. Additional things like soft area rugs for morning feet are a nice touch as well.
Now your company ready!
