How to make a great small guest bedroom

It’s true. We all want our guest to feel as if they were at their own home. For that reason, we want to have a bedroom for guests that will have the proper decor. We’ve been there, trust us. So you are starting to wonder. What could you best do for your guest for a welcoming, warm and friendly stay?

1. Downsize the bed

A queen size bed takes up a lot of space. So, consider switching it with a smaller bed. This is a highly effective way of adding a few inches to the space. That way your guest will be less overwhelmed by the too-much-furniture thing. You need a bedroom that will have some open space for your friend or relative to put their own stuff.

2. Create space around the bed

Moving the bed closer to the wall gives the impression of more space. Consider moving the bed away from the window and center it so that aisles on both sides are opened up. When you do this, the flow of the room will make it easier for your visitors to access the bed. This is of the same logic as the previous one. Remember! Anything is done in favor of your guests.

3. Small mirrors make a big impact

We all know about the effects mirrors have in a room: They make the bedroom larger. Despite this, mirrors can be costly. Luckily, smaller mirrors can create a similar effect. The mirror decor is something quite useful and people will love it! Try it. You will see that it will be much appreciated and the room will be very inviting.

4. Make the headboard a book case

This is yet another clever way of creating more space in the guestroom. Instead of having a standalone bookshelf that will take up a lot of space, consider making the headboard a book shelf – desk.

5. Remove the unnecessary items

If the guestroom already has a closet, then you need to remove the bulky wardrobe. The space can be used instead as a seating area by the guest who need no extra storage. Or you could add some cute furniture to add to the decor of the room. Just consider trying something minimal that every guest you know would most likely like or find useful.

6. Make good use of wall space

You can skip the wall decorations or the artwork. Instead hang hats, scarves, or any other accessories on wall surfaces that are far from the closet. Taking advantage of the space is really one of the most important small guest bedroom ideas. Why? Because that way, your small guest room will not be that small after all!

7. Hang the lamp

A chandelier, lantern, or pendant lamp will free up lots of floor space. Furthermore, the chandelier will become a chic focal point of the small guest room.

8. Lengthen Drapes

A significant change can be made using long drapes. White drapes, for instance soften light and make the guest room greatly appealing. When done right, the drapes will make an otherwise small room appear larger. Does that sound like something you would like to do? Then immediately follow this tip for a great, big guest room!

9. The bed can also serve as a desk

Some guests may prefer to catch up on work at night. So, get rid of the oversized table and fix a bedside shelf where a laptop can be placed.

10. Have a single piece of furniture on each wall

Avoid making the room crammed up with a chair and a bed on the back wall. The bed will appear to dominate the room while the chair will be shoehorned in. Just like we mentioned earlier, this feature will give space to your guest bedroom, something that your guests will like as well. Also, this way it will not cost you that much to furniture it. Killing two birds with one stone!

  1. I love the look of that gray paint with that wood floor on the picture right above point number 5. Maybe I will keep this picture available to me while I am having one of my rooms repainted. It might be a good idea to get professional help with this because I don’t have the skills or tools to do it this good.

  2. Nice post. I used to be checking constantly this weblog and I am impressed!
