When creating a guest room in your home, look at a hotel room for inspiration. Hotels cannot stay in business if their guests do not enjoy their stay, so they put a lot of time, effort and thought into how their rooms look, feel and function. The classic hotel room has everything that you need to be comfortable without being fussy. The room is usually very open feeling, uncluttered and organized.
Comfortable and Uncluttered While you want to provide your guest with all of the comforts of home, you also want the room to feel very uncluttered. Allow empty room in the closets, empty tabletops, and empty drawers in the dresser. These empty spaces invite your guest to move in and get comfortable. While you may want to hang some wall art to keep the room from being too boring, you do not want to clutter surfaces with the family photo collection.
Colors that Work for Everyone By choosing light neutrals to decorate your guest room, you can make the room look even more open and light. If you want the room's design to be a little more exciting, you may decide to create a focal wall with textured wallpaper or a darker shade of paint. By adding a focal wall to your guest room, you add a great deal of visual interest to the room without making it feel cluttered.
Finding Furniture When you are selecting the furniture for your guest room, again remember that sometimes less is more. Think of the actual functions of the room, and you can keep furniture clutter to a minimum. Of course you will want a bed and a bedside table with a lamp. Then you will want a table or rack to hold a suitcase. If there is a television in the room, then you may want to house it in a small entertainment center. Again, make sure that you leave empty space in the closet and dresser for your guest to use for their belongings.
Accessories and Necessary As you add accessories to your guest room, try to make them useful. For example, you may want to make an iron and ironing board available for your guest's use. You may want to provide a small coffee pot with a basket of snacks for your guest to enjoy between meals. If you include drinks and snacks, make sure to include cups and mugs. Adding a list of local stores, churches, dry cleaners and points of interest, as well as a local magazine, is a nice touch. In the bathroom, you may want to provide shampoo, soap and lotion samples, and make sure that you provide a blow drier and soft, luxurious towels and a terry robe.
In short, think about the last time that you stayed in a hotel, and remember the amenities that you really appreciated, and simply replicate them for your guests.
