The Christmas Countdown Is On: Get Your Guest Room Ready Now!
The shops are filled with gifts and decorations. It’s only a matter of time before winter arrives, and we look forward to spending Christmas with our loved ones. If you’re having friends or family over for the holidays, now is the time to start prepping your guest room. If you’re short on ideas, here are some tips to make your spare room look perfect.
Has it been a while since anyone stayed over? Is your guest room in need of some TLC? Are the walls looking tired or the decor dated? If so, you can transform a room in very little time without spending much at all. All you need is some paint or paper, and some accessories. Go for a shade that matches the theme and style of your home. If you have curtains and bed linen you don’t want to replace, choose complementary paint colors. If you’re painting, make sure you prepare the walls first. Clean and sand before you apply the first coat. This will help to make sure the finish is smooth and even. If you’ve got plain walls and you’re keen to inject some interest and color, go for a statement wall. Choose a printed paper and cover a single wall. Once you’ve done this, you can select accessories to match.
When you’ve got a color theme established, add some accents to bring life to your room. Cover the bed with blankets and cushions to add a cozy feel for Christmas. Add a vase full of flowers or a potted houseplant. Lay down a rug if you have wooden or tiled floors. Place lamps on bedside tables or add an eye-catching standing lamp.
If you’re struggling to find inspiration for paint colors, paper patterns or accessories, look online. It’s also a good idea to read some magazines. Browse online stores and take advantage of special offers like Craftsvilla coupons. Every saving counts, especially at Christmas time.
You want to make your guest room welcoming and homey. You can do this by folding clean towels and placing them on the bed, and leaving a little welcome gift. It doesn’t have to be anything expensive. You could wrap up some homemade brownies, for example. Leave extra pillows and blankets in the wardrobe, and make sure there are plenty of hangers available. Stock up the en-suite bathroom with miniature toiletries and essentials, such as toothpaste. If you’re keen to go the extra mile, you could even leave a pair of slippers by the bed and a hot water bottle. If your guests are arriving late at night, leave a bottle of water and some glasses by the bed and a small selection of snacks. Printing out the wifi password may also be helpful.
Have you got friends and family members visiting this Christmas? If so, you’re probably excited, but you may also be a little bit stressed. When people come to stay, you want them to be comfortable and to feel welcome in your home. These tips will help you to create a beautiful guest room and ensure that your visitors have everything they need for a relaxing stay.
