4 Ideas for Decorating Your Guest Bedroom this Summer
Are you hosting any friends or family during summer vacation? Creating a comfortable guest room bed is a great way to make your guests feel welcomed and relaxed, even if they are far from home. If you are looking to spruce up your guest bedroom and want to make your guest feel right at home, you don't have to spend a lot of money to ensure that your visitors have a warm and comfortable place to stay.
Here are few cheap guest bed ideas that won't break the bank:
Budget-Friendly Tips to Decorate Your Guest Bedroom
1. Borrow items from other rooms in your home.
One way to decorate the guest bedroom on a budget is to borrow small pieces of furniture from other areas of the home. For example, you could grab a small side table from the living room and convert it into a nightstand. Or if you have any extra lamps or other pieces of furniture that could serve a better function in the guest bedroom, don't be afraid to re-purpose these small items.
2. Browse furniture outlets and your local thrift stores.
Many stores have great options for budget-friendly guest bedroom essentials. You can also shop your local thrift stores and antique shops to see if there are any pieces of furniture you can use. Decorator tip: any antique piece can be given new life with a fresh coat of paint and a little love!
Guests probably won't notice your antique chairs or thrift store drawers, but they will notice a worn-down, uncomfortable mattress. Great mattresses are available for every budget. If you are looking for a quick fix, choose a comfy mattress pad with a plush pillow top and soft bed linens to create the most comfortable sleep environment.
3. Take on some DIY projects.
Bedroom décor can get expensive and quickly add up. To avoid the steep prices, check out The Daily Doze or Pinterest for some simple guest room furniture ideas and do-it-yourself projects! There are tons of links online to easy and stylish décor projects that you can complete on a rainy afternoon or a spring day at home.
4. Freshen up the room with fragrance.
Before your guests arrive, lightly spritz the sheets and towels with a scented linen spray. Adding scented soaps and candles is also an inexpensive way to freshen up the bathroom area, and fresh, seasonal flowers can be a low-cost way to brighten up the room and let your guests know you're excited to have them. However, try not to go overboard on the flowers, though, in case your visitors suffer from allergies.
No matter how you decide to decorate your guest room and guest room bed, remember that comfort is key to ensuring your guests have a great stay. Thinking of the little details ahead of time (like making sure fresh towels and extra blankets are handy) can help keep your guests happy and comfortable this summer.
Also, since your friends and family will primarily be sleeping in the guest room, make sure they have a relaxing place to rest. If you need to buy a new mattress, now is the perfect time.
