In this guide, we'll help you plan your guest bedroom to ensure it's cosy and homely. We'll explore decorating ideas, small bedroom ideas to save space, and guest beds for a good night's sleep.

1. Always Give Guests a Warm Welcome

A warm welcome goes without saying when you're entertaining guests. When your family or friends stay at your home, you should make a special effort to help them feel at ease. To make a good first impression, you can also set up your guest bedroom so it's prepared with essential items they might need during their stay. This includes fresh bedding, towels, and toiletries.

2. A Comfy 2-in-1 Sleeper Sofa

If you have a small spare bedroom, you'll need to be creative with your space. One way you can do this is by investing in a sofa bed. This way, your guests will have a comfortable bed at night and a sitting area during the day if they want to relax. There are also storage sofa bed options so that you can use the storage to provide the fresh towels mentioned earlier!

3. Space Saving Small Double Beds

Another fantastic bed type for a guest bedroom is a space-saving 4ft small double bed. It's important not to overcrowd the guest room with large furniture. Even though most guest bedrooms are primarily for sleeping, your visitors will be happy with some extra floor to move around. Don't forget to add a good mattress to help them sleep well.

4. Fresh Bedding

Fresh bedding should never be compromised- always make sure your bedding is clean and ready for guests. As well as this, consider ways you can go that extra mile to make your visitor's sleep experience exquisite. You could add a mattress topper, a selection of pillows, and also, different tog ratings of duvets. Some guests will prefer a warm thick duvet, whilst others will be happier with a thin cool one.

5. Make Some Space

Guests will need some free space to store their suitcases, hang their clothes, and store shoes. If your guest bedroom is multifunctional and used as an office, make sure you free up space before they arrive. It's always a nice idea to provide them with few coat hangers – nobody likes creased clothes. Plus, remove any clutter as this can also help them get a good night's sleep.
