5 Tips For Decorating Your Guest Bedroom

Guest Room Furniture Calgary

When it comes to dressing up your home, the guest bedroom often gets overlooked.

If you’ve ever been a visitor yourself, you know first hand that a comfortable guest room can make the visit exceptionally more pleasurable for the guest and the host.

BE MODERN’s wide collection of affordable and stylish bedroom furniture will ensure that your guest room is as welcoming as possible without the pain of a huge expense.

The 5 Essentials of an Ideal Guest Bedroom

A simple bedroom furniture design concept can help you create a room that any guest will appreciate. To begin with, focus on these 5 essentials:

1. Comfortable Bed

Everyone wants a good night’s sleep. That’s why a luxurious bed is one of the most important furniture pieces in a guest room. Dress it up with some fresh pillows in varying colors and textures and nice linen sheets for a hotel-like experience.

If you tend to have multiple guests, consider using two matching double beds rather than a single full-sized one.

SPECIAL TIP: Don’t forget the RUG! A rug will warm up the room and make it more inviting for your guests.


2. Bedside Table

A bedside table can serve multiple functions in a guest room. Not only does it give your guests a place to store their items, you can also use it to:

  • Place functional items such as a carafe of water, clock, books or a lamp.
  • Place decorative items such as a simple vase of flowers

3. A Chest of Drawers

To keep the room neat and functional incorporate a chest of drawers in your guest room furniture.

Remember, it’s much more convenient to be able to store items and clothes rather than pulling them out of suitcases all the time.

This is also a great place to store additional linen, out of season clothes and other items you don’t need readily available.

4. Include a Seating Area

If the space allows it, consider adding a comfortable chaise or a small desk. This gives your guests a space to relax or get things done. Seating area image:

5. Lighting

The key to creating a warm and relaxed atmosphere is with ambient guest room lighting. Soft, indirect ceiling lights will keep your guests comfortable and help them sleep well at night.

A bedside lamp is a convenient and cost effective way to do this as well.
