Step 1 – Review the room for functionality
Take a critical look around the room and picture yourself staying in this space for several days or longer.
Ask yourself the following questions to help define your goals for the space:
Is there adequate storage for your clothes?
Is there enough light, both natural and lamp light?
Is the temperature manageable?
Step 2 – Address the comfort of the space
The most important piece in any guest room is the bed, yet many times the guest room default is the oldest mattress in the house. If the bed is not comfortable, neither will your guests be.
In addition to a comfortable mattress, the size should be appropriate for the number of guests you plan to have. For 2 guests a queen size bed is a good choice with a nightstand on each side.
Step 3 Find your Inspiration
With any bedroom project, finding your bedding is the best way to start. Select bedding that fits the look and budget you want to have. This will give you the palette to pull from for your paint color, draperies, lamps, and accessories. Make sure you choose washable items that can be layered to allow your guests to create their own comfort. Building your own composition of materials for the bedding can give the room a more custom look than buying a matching set. Break up a set with a solid coverlet and some unique throw pillows.
