Guestrooms – or should that be junk rooms – can get very cluttered over the year. There’s still plenty of time to rescue your spare bedroom from the depths of despair in time for Christmas with our top tips.
Sleek and sleep-inducing
Jade’s bedroom is sleek and stylish. Get the same feel in your guest room by clearing the decks. Sort through any boxes that have been piling up – and frankly, if they’ve been there all year, consider whether you really need them. Blackout blinds will make things super cosy and have your visitors snoozing in no time.
Show your room some sunshine
The Great British winter can sometimes feel a little bleak. And that’s why colour is your friend. This traditional bedroom with painted floorboards could feel a little cold if it weren’t for that bright and cheery Pleated blind. Combined with some gorgeous textures, including a sheepskin rug that screams ‘sink your feet into me’ and the look is complete.
It’s the little touches that count
Think of the things that make us feel comfy in a hotel room. Miniature toiletries. A hairdryer. Fresh towels. It’s no different when we’re hosting at home. Make sure things like dressing tables are clear for overnight guests, and maybe even leave out bottles of water or perfume or aftershave for them to have a spritz of. Hello overstaying their welcome…
Make a homely scheme
Make like Megan and Oli and pick an accent colour. Treat your guestroom like you would any other – a proper scheme will make it feel much more homely. A few little touches here and there will really set the scene. We’re particular fans of hoards of snuggly cushions combined with a soft, Roman blind. All of our Roman blinds are available with blackout linings, perfect for guest and master bedrooms alike.
