Guest rooms are often overlooked when it comes to decorating the house. Most often, you’ll find your ‘guest room’ is known as the ‘spare room’, and is filled with ironing boards, tool kits, piles of laundry that you haven’t gotten around to yet, and half-filled tins of paint. Only to have everything shoved into the nearest press when you’ve got guests coming to stay.
We say turn your ‘spare room’ into a gorgeous ‘guest room’ that will have friends and family longing for their next visit to Casa You! Creating the perfect guest room doesn’t have to break the bank, either. In fact, with a couple of small touches, you can create a lap of luxury that will have you contemplating moving into your own guest room!
Comfort is Key
While there’s nothing that compares to your own bed, with this Silent Night Deep Sleep set, your guests will have a seriously comfy snooze. Including a 13.5 tog duvet for extra cosy vibes, a mattress topper for optimum comfort and a pair of medium-firm pillows, you’ll actually consider picking up a set for yourself.
Keep It Neutral
Bright colours are very harsh on the eye, but this doesn’t just apply to the colour of your walls. The colour of your bedding has a huge impact on how you sleep, believe it or not. For optimum relaxation and calm, keep your duvet set, and any throws or cushions you have on the bed nice and neutral. We love this opulent jacquard duvet set from Catherine Lansfield. Available in double, king and super king size, it comes with a duvet cover and two pillow cases.
We tend to overlook the power of a good scented candle, but there really is nothing nicer than walking into a room that’s filled with a fresh scent such as fluffy towels or fresh linen. It may be just a small touch, but something your guests will really appreciate. Light this Clean Cotton Yankee candle for a couple of hours before your guests arrive for a welcoming, fresh scent on arrival.
Water, Water Everywhere
Is there anything worse than waking up in someone’s house at 2am, gasping for a glass of water? Give your guests that hotel vibe, by leaving a fresh jug of water and two glasses on the bedside locker. But don’t blame us if they find you so hospitable that they won’t want to ever go home!
