Another guest bedroom redo

Don’t we all have that one room……the one that we feel  isn’t picture perfect and therefore there are no pictures.

I looked  for before pictures of the one guest bedroom that has a connecting bath. It’s the room we use most often when there are guests.

The other two are for the overflow when we have more guests.

This main guest room is smaller and has three doors….entrance door, closet door and bathroom door. It makes decorating a challenge.

1………2……….3

Since there are no before pictures, take my word for it…..It wasn’t very inviting and I knew it could be better.

My determination was to  take what I had to work with…..,  a bed, beige carpet and beige walls, one window and three doors…, and come up with a comfortable room with a big dash of pretty.

After two and a half years, I now have pictures of the downstairs guest bedroom.  I would like to take up the beige carpet and replace with hardwood and paint the beige walls………..but not going to happen anytime soon.

 

Every guest room needs a comfy chair.

Wall art adds a pop of color to liven up an otherwise neutral room.

 

Two night stands that double as storage  for linens and towels.

Every guest room needs a clock. This one makes a big statement.

 

 

A mirror is a must for a guest bedroom.  Can you image going to a hotel and not having a mirror?

 

In a small room, comfort and space are more soothing than a clutter of d├ęcor items.

Keeping them to a minimum leaves space for the guests personal items.

Making a guest feel welcome starts with the feel of the bedroom they will be staying in.

Stay a night in your own guest bedroom and it will give you an idea of the changes you need to make to create a room that says

RELAX.
