If you have a spare room in your home, you may have decided that it would be good to turn it into a guest room. This way, you have a nice room to offer to your guests when you have someone over for the night. There are a few things you want to make sure you have in the room that will help it to feel like a comfortable and welcoming space for your overnight guests. Consider the advice below when you are designing your guest bedroom.

Create plenty of storage

If you may be having a guest for a relatively long period of time, then you want to make sure you give them plenty of room to keep their belongings in so they won't have to keep any of them in their suitcase. Clear out the closet of anything you may have been storing in t and leave plenty of hangers in it. Also, put a hanging shoe rack in the closet, so they can keep their shoes put up.

Put in a nice dresser for them to store their clothes that don't need to hang. If the room is a very small one, then you can go with a tall dresser, so it doesn't take up too much floor space. Another option for offering them more drawers is to go with a captain's bed. This is a bed with storage drawers underneath the mattress.

A corner desk can give them an area to check their emails, write letters or even to do their artwork. If there isn't a lot of room for a desk, you can have one installed with brackets that can be attached to the wall, and pulled down when it's needs and hinged back against the wall when it's not.

Get the right mattress

You want to choose a mattress that most guests would like, If you get one that's too soft, any of your guests with back issues may wake up stiff and even in pain. If you go to firm, then some guests may have a hard time getting to sleep. A mattress with medium firmness may be bets when trying to accommodate everyone.

Choose the right style of furniture

Go with furniture most anyone can relate to and that you know is going to last you for many years to come. A good option is to go with solid wood bedroom furniture. Solid wood is durable and it has a look to it that provides a neutral environment. You can find beautiful bedroom sets that feature solid wood and would make a beautiful addition to your guest room. Contact a business, such as Black Carriage Furniture, for more information about furniture.
