Creative Ideas for Your Guest Room

Whether you often host guests or simply have family or friends to stay every once in a while, it’s nice to have a space that people enjoy staying in. Here, we share some creative ideas for your guest room which will ensure that your visitors feel right at home.

Add a Mini Bar

Bring the hotel experience into your guest room with your very own mini bar – something that those visiting you are very unlikely to expect! Stock a mini fridge with bottled water, juice, a couple of snacks, and anything else that you think your guests might like during their stay with you.

The Russell Hobbs Mini Fridge Cooler is a great option for guest rooms of all styles and sizes thanks to its compact design and sleek black finish

Build a Window Seat

If you have space for a window seat in your spare bedroom, building one of these will give your guests somewhere to relax and unwind away from your main living room. This can be especially useful if your guest wants to read before bed or wakes up early and would like someone to sit with a drink.

Don’t worry if you can’t create a window seat, a comfortable armchair, such as the Arianna Velvet Chair, sat in the corner will be just as appreciated.

Create a Gallery Wall

A great way to add creativity and character to a guest room is with the addition of a gallery wall. You can include artworks, mirrors, photographs, and anything else that you think will suit the space and combine different styles, shapes and sizes to make something truly unique.

Whether you stick to a theme or let your imagination run wild is completely up to you!

Incorporate a Workspace

Like with the window seat, including a workspace in your guest room isn’t an absolute must but can be an excellent perk for guests should you have the space to incorporate one.

Only a small desk and chair are required as it’s unlikely that your guest will be working there for hours, but this will be helpful should they have a few emails to reply to or want to check in on some reporting during their stay.

Provide Home Comforts

There are a number of home comforts that you can provide to ensure that your guest room feels like home to those who visit. Providing a dressing gown and a blanket will help the room to feel cosy, and towels and mini toiletries will be gratefully received should your guest have forgotten to pack these.

Leaving some books or magazines in the room is also a nice idea and will give the space a homey feel.

Now that you’ve read our creative ideas for your guest room, you can make a space full of character for those who visit you.
