Top 3 Bedroom Design Ideas

Designing A Guest Bedroom

Redesigning and redecorating a spare bedroom to contribute to the overall appearance of a modern household can be a truly fulfilling experience. It allows you to try out new colours and styles in your own time, without having to rush to complete the job as you would in the master bedroom (unless of course, you’ve agreed to entertain!). The key to creating a stylish guest bedroom is to design it with your guests in mind; the room should look welcoming, comfortable and stylish whilst offering versatility to appeal to different guests of all ages.


Keep it Light and Bright

Guest bedrooms are considerably smaller than master bedrooms (unless you’re feeling generous), so it’s a good idea to look into a few ways of decorating and furnishing with space in mind. Firstly, applying reflective light colours around the room will make the best use of natural light; so being generous with the creams and whites in areas such as the walls and bedsheets will hopefully stop your guests from feeling too claustrophobic. Adding an elongated mirror also adds a feeling of spaciousness; combine this with some bright LED lighting (which has similar illuminating qualities to natural sunlight) and your box bedroom will feel a lot roomier!

You may also want to look into some practical storage solutions, so you can still use the guest bedroom for storage when it’s not occupied without cluttering it. Guest beds with integrated drawers are perfect for stashing away a large show collection whilst wall-hung baskets can hold guest towels quite fashionably.

Sofa beds are a fantastic space-saving option, allowing you to use the room as a study or additional living room if a guest isn’t staying overnight. Beds can take up quite a lot of space, but sofa beds can be a stylish and practical solution that allows you to use the room to its full potential; they’re particularly helpful if you don’t have a regular guest (such as a grandchild).


Styling the Room

Adding some modern features to guest bedrooms will not only provide those using the room with certain luxuries but also show that you haven’t skipped on style in any room of the house. Source some contemporary furnishings that contrast nicely with your chosen colour scheme; various styles of light shades can be fitted to standard hanging lights, and have a wonderful effect on the overall feeling of the room.

Are you creating a classy, contemporary bedroom? Add a black chandelier.

Are you creating a warm and welcoming boudoir? A deep maroon or chocolate brown light shade will add that perfect finishing touch and give the emitted light a warming glow.

Bedside tables and dressers are essential furnishings for guest bedrooms. Bedside tables allow guests to place their personal belongings within reach whilst they sleep (very convenient for mobile phones), whilst the dressing table provides them with somewhere to get ready in the morning.

Don’t be afraid to inject a little personality into the guest bedroom, whilst photographs of you and your hubby may not be the best image for your guests to wake up to, accessorising is key to a homely guest bedroom.

Additional cushions in a bold accent colour can liven up your guest bedrooms and take them away from the bland ‘hotel service station’ look. Occasional chairs can be a great way to add character, pick one that complements your bedside tables and dresser to tie in all your furniture nicely!


En-suite Guest Bedrooms

If you’ve got an en-suite bathroom attached to your guest bedroom then make sure you decorate it to match or at least complement the bedroom. Aside from your essentials like toilets and sinks, consider having some pretty bathroom furniture in there to add some character whilst providing more storage solutions.

Additional toilet rolls, new toothbrushes, soaps etc. are handy to have in for guests who weren’t intending on staying and have no toiletries with them, but such items can make bathrooms look a tad cluttered (particularly if space is limited, to begin with). Bathroom cabinets and vanity units are great storage solutions that don’t take up too much space and actually add to the appearance of the room.

If you’re a fan of entertaining then guest bedrooms are as important as your dining room table! Comfort and a homely experience is key to making your guests want to stay again. Little luxuries such as fresh dressing gowns and spare toiletries can make them feel really welcome, but don’t make your guest bedrooms too luxurious or you’ll never have a spare minute to yourself!
