Oftentimes the guest room is the last room in the home to be decorated. But don’t your guests deserve that little bit extra of effort? Spring is a good time to think about paying attention to this often neglected room before the busy summer season ahead. Now is the time to tackle this project.
The first thing you need to figure out is the bed. A daybed is the perfect choice for your guest room or any small space. It does double duty. In the day, load it up with pillows to create a comfortable seating area. At night, easily convert it to a bed by pulling back the covers. A daybed is usually more comfortable than a pull-out sofa since it uses a real mattress or futon mattress.
Daybeds are available in a wide variety of styles. Fortunately with so much choice on the market today, it’s super simple to choose one that goes with the décor of your home. Go for the traditional look of wrought iron or keep things light and airy with clean white. Try a modern approach with a black metal daybed with linear details or choose the urban look of an espresso leather finish. Looking for extra storage or more sleeping space? Choose a model with a trundle bed or under the bed storage drawers.
After you’ve selected a daybed and purchased new bedding, it’s a snap to figure out the rest of your space. Try incorporating art or a rug in similar colors as the bedding. Purchase a new nightstand to coordinate with your bed and add a new lamp to brighten everything up. Your guests are sure to be impressed and you will rest well knowing you have crossed this project off of your to-do list.
