Designing Guest Bedrooms

A guest bedroom is a wonderful way to make your guests feel right at home. Having a perfect guest bedroom guarantees privacy and a well-deserved rest after a long journey to our friends and relatives. Vibrant colours, textures and refined furnishings will be a great addition to the guest bedrooms.

Some of the home interior designers ideally recommend starting with these tips to turn your guest bedroom into a retreat.

Pick a theme

Decide on a theme before deciding on the furnishings of the bedroom. Be it colours or inspirations like eclectic, monochromatic, artsy, minimalism, traditional and others. Selecting them will help in picking out the correct matching furnishings like throw pillows, linens or cushions.

Bed

Home interior designers in Bangalore stress on the bed as it is the centrepiece of any bedroom. If you want warm colours, then use pastel shades for linens or bold colours like purple or grey to give them the room a bit of cosiness. Add some texture with throw pillows, cushions and a fluffy comforter for that pleasant rest. In case your apartment is a studio, then you can have convertible sofa-bed that is great to look and comfortable to sleep.

Furniture

When designing guest bedrooms, it is good to recycle our furniture like-keeping a dresser as a side table to the bed that could meet the storage needs of your guest and at the same time give them functionality. Add an ottoman or bench near the windows for seating arrangements. When thinking about mirrors, you can place a jewelled mirror or with lights.

Lighting

The lighting in a bedroom can make or break its ambience. By choosing layered lighting, it is easier to give depth to the room. Home interior designers in Bangalore use wall sconces, pendant chandeliers, table lamps, overhead lighting and reading lamps. To have your guest walk about unhindered, you can install floor lamps to guide them around the room. 

Unexpected add-ons

Not all guests, go to sleep on the hint of night, they may be night owls. You give them a pleasant surprise by installing a TV or a bookshelf with highly popular reads to keep them occupied during the night. It is also a good idea to keep some midnight snacks and drinks handy to satisfy those sudden pangs of hunger.

Here is a tip! It is nice to keep a vase of fresh flowers to add some colour to the room. You can also add a basket of fruits or some chocolates as a nice return gift.

Extra effects

To bring some more drama to the bedroom, use wallpaper or add texture to a single wall to enhance the results. Hang some paintings of flowers or nature scenes but no family portraits. Always keep some extra cushions or throw pillows in the closet for that extra comfort.
