Guest bedroom design ideas

69 images

A well-designed guest bedroom will make friends and family feel welcome, even when they are far from home. Use vibrant colour, hotel-style furnishings and touchable textures to make your guest room a place people can’t wait to spend time in.

If you want to be the perfect host for your guests, there’s nothing more luxurious than showing them to their own, beautifully decorated bedroom. Providing your guest with all of their favourite home comforts – beautiful bedding, plenty of storage and even a light to read by at night, will all add up to a wonderful experience for your loved ones.

Create a room that is clean and serene with a neutral backdrop that will please any taste. A hotel-style room is chic and elegant and will be a pleasure to stay in. Opt for soft furnishings in muted hues of grey, brown and white to evoke a feeling of calm for your guests.

Or show your personality with a themed room that your guests will instantly recognise as your own style. A pop of your favourite colour, furniture styles in keeping with the rest of your home or your favourite wall art will remind your guests of your personality and tastes.

If you don’t have the room to create a spare place just for guests, why not partition off another room to create a small area for guests to sleep? Choosing to section off part of your living room and sticking to a minimalist design won’t take up much space, but will mean your home instantly becomes more welcoming to loved ones. Take a look at these bedroom storage ideas for more inspiration.
