How to furnish your guest room

Whether it’s for your snoring spouse or moody mother-in-law, a guest room is a must have for your humble abode. Some of us out there may see substantial difficulty in making space for such a necessity but I’m here to tell you that it can be achieved with ease!

So here are tips to help you along your way:

1.) Acceptable in the 80’s - When most of us think ‘guest bed’, our minds are instantly turned to unruly images of raised divan bases or a military style foldaway that looks like nothing more than a ping pong table with springs. There are so many modern alternatives that can bring some much needed style and sophistication to a room. Take our Evie Day Bed as an example. Bringing day-to-day elegance to your room, theEvie Day Bed boasts a versatile and contemporary iron design with the opportunity to purchase the matching Evie Guest Bed which fits underneath perfectly and is an ideal space saver.

2.) Space Waste – Don’t be afraid of dedicating some space to a guest room. Let’s face it; we’re all guilty of hearing the words ‘guest room’ and dreading the loss of our personal space in the house. It doesn’t have to be this way! Try using a sofa bed to keep that much needed lounging space. Our great new range of Sofa Beds are the perfect way to camouflage your sleeping station and, as they come in a range of luxurious fabrics, would sneak into your home with minimal décor disturbance.

3.) Check in, check out – If you have a room to spare then it’s all about creating that ‘hotel room’ type dynamic. Now, you don’t have to go as far as putting on your best British accent, top hat and concierge outfit for your guests, even though it would be impressive! Replicating the hotel room feel is all about creating luxurious and modern décor with a warm, homely feel. It’s best not to use loud, garish colours when decorating so try using a monochromatic scheme to keep things sophisticated and quiet. On top of this, use as many different textures as possible when it comes to linen and cushions. This will help to boost and accentuate the look of the bed as it will always be the shining glory in a hotel room.
