When it comes to your guest bedrooms, size doesn’t matter as much as you think. More often than not, the spare bedroom is repurposed into a storage room or a walk-in closet when it appears to be too small for guests. Most of us have spent a night in a tiny hotel bedroom at some point in our lives. We all remember how claustrophobic and cramped small bedrooms can feel. But your guest room doesn’t have to be like that. With a little planning and some strategic organization, you can turn a tiny space into a place your guests will love.
Keeping everything at hand
The main problem with small bedrooms is that they may lack some of the essentials due to their size. However, you can focus on making your guests feel at home by leaving everything they need inside the room.
No. But, we won’t lie; it’s going to take some thinking outside the box. What does your guest need to be comfortable? You need to put yourself into your guests’ shoes. Most people don’t travel with a set of towels, for instance. Therefore, you need to leave their bathroom essentials in the bedroom in a practical spot. If you don’t want to add a hook to the wall, you may consider an elegant and space-saving rustic ladder. You can easily make your own with a few planks. Your ladder is the perfect receptacle for the bathroom towels. Some guests prefer a warm bed at night, while others want to keep it fresh. You can use the ladder to keep a couple of blankets so that everyone can make themselves comfortable. It’s a simple touch, but it makes all the difference!
Using storage solutions that fit
Small rooms can have odd shapes, which makes it impossible to use classic furniture. But what can you do when shop-bought furniture doesn’t fit? You need to look for made-to-measure storage solutions, such as custom closets. If you are not sure about measure-made items, this article, the top 3 reasons custom closets are worth it, will definitely change your mind. Think of it as a way to make the most of the space available without reducing mobility inside the room. Your guests certainly don’t want to feel cramped against a huge wardrobe or a cupboard. But they always want to be able to store their things easily, rather than clutter the room.
Choosing welcoming shades
Colors can dramatically transform a small room. Don’t be afraid to play with hues to create a sense of warmth. For instance, a cream color makes the room feel welcoming, so it’s a good idea to look for a variety of cream shades with different background hints. You can also pick a color and cover the walls and the ceiling with it to reduce visual contrast. As the edges fade away, the bedroom feels big. Blue is an excellent color for this as it is soothing and can help guests fall asleep quickly. But if you prefer a modern look, pale pinks such as Millennium pink are a favorite!
Small guest bedrooms can be a lot of fun to decorate. Unlike your main bedroom, you can be economical about accessories and furniture. But, by putting your guests’ needs first, you can create a space that works for them and is inviting.
