8 Tips for Turning Your Guest Room into a Retreat

Having guests over is one of the perks of owning a home and it is great fun to be able to host your friends and family while showcasing the gorgeous interiors. That being said, it is important that the room your guests are staying in is a place where they can easily feel at home as well. Below we have listed some tips on how to decorate guest rooms that will have your guests wanting to return again and again.


Naturally, flowers provide a wonderful scent to any room. Pick single blooms such as tulips for they are available all year round and suit most aesthetics.

Add Some Fluff 

To ensure a great night sleep, make the bed with a high thread count sheets, a fluffy comforter, and an abundance of comfortable sleeping pillows. Make the room cozier with a throw blanket at the foot of the bed and decorative pillows to add some punch. 

Keep the Closet Clean 

Your guests will be thankful to have the closet space, especially if they are staying for more than one day. A luggage rack in the closet is also helpful for storing bags. 

Window Treatments 

When decorating guest rooms, it is important that you have the window treatments black out lined to provide darkening in the room for optimal sleeping. 


For peaceful guest rooms, dimmer lights are always a great choice.


In addition to the bathroom mirror, it is always appreciated to have a full-length mirror option within the bedroom or mounted to the back of the closet door

Provide The Necessities

It is easy for those traveling to forget even the most important things. In case this occurs, include travel-essentials within the bathroom drawer.  

Bathroom Decor 

Including guest robes and your favorite bath products in the shower is a great touch for a resort-like atmosphere.
