Guest rooms are so important in any home. This is where you show the people you love the most that you are happy to have them and make them feel warm and welcome. It’s a must that these spaces look and feel well thought out and inviting. Your goal is to make your guest rooms feels like a home away from home for friends and family. With the holiday season in full swing, this is the perfect time to revamp your guest room before your guests come into town. We’ll show you how KF took a simple simple garage apartment and made it a fabulous oasis for guests with both big and little details.
KF Tip ~ Want to know if your guest room is really and truly and dreamy place to sleep? Spending the night in there is the perfect way to find out.
Although this garage space has some nice features, it did not feel very inviting. A quick addition of new bedding, pillows, and textures is one of the key ways to easily amplify any space. Thoughtful layers are what it takes to create an inviting and luxe oasis for your own room or for your guest room. You don’t have to change everything out to improve a room. The key is knowing what to add and embellish. Small details that are well thought out are also a key factor. Think of what’s it’s like at your favorite hotel and amplify those details.
The essentials and basics were already here. However, KF went to work with her magic to make a perfectly inviting oasis. If you have a space with great bones, it’s easy to add the details to truly make it a welcoming space.
Leaving the closet relatively open for you guests is a must. You want them to feel completely at home and comfortable. They most likely will want to unpack in order to settle in, especially if they are staying longer than a day or two. Make sure your guest closet isn’t packed with all the items you don’t know where to store.
Art and prints make a room feel more personal and inviting. See more about small changes that make a big impact on last week’s blog about styling art here.
Texture is always key! Mixing different patterns, textures, and hues to give the room more warmth and a truly luxurious feel is one of the most inviting assets of any space.
It may not seem like it, but you can quickly refresh existing furniture – no major changes needed! These chairs without any added throws or pillows looked a bit bland and tired, but a faux fur and coordinating pillows quickly transformed these chairs into an inviting place to sit and unwind. Add an ottoman or a coffee table and create an extra space within your guest room for lounging.
KF Tip ~ Have a smaller room? A small table desk as a nightstand and a soft desk chair will do the trick. Functional, inviting, and fabulous to create a lovely and inviting room.
