Create a Room Your Guests Will Love

The holidays bring family and friends together for quality time, great food, and fun — but if you have family and friends coming from a distance, they need a place to stay. Decorating a guest room can be a lot of fun! It’s a great way to change up your decor and create a cozy space for visitors. We have put together a few ways to make your guest room feel like home.


The most important part of your guest room is the bed. It’s a statement piece. It can be hard to get a good night’s sleep when you’re not at home. Our Inspired Bedding Collection is full of quality linens and plenty of fashionable styles to make sure your guests sleep well wake up feeling refreshed. No bed is complete without accessories so be sure to have a variety of throw blankets and plenty of pillows so they can use as desired. We don’t get enough rest during the holidays so let’s make it a priority for our guests! 

Bedroom with Drapes

Spruce up the space

Now that you have made a cozy, inviting bed, let’s dive in to the rest of the space. You want the space to feel roomy. Your guests need room to unpack, get some privacy, and a get chance to relax from festivities. Available dresser space and hangers in the closet are a nice place to start. Blackout draperies or window shades will also allow your house guests to take an afternoon nap or catch up from jet lag. Add some easily accessible lighting like side lamps or night lights to make navigating unfamiliar surroundings easier. Keeping the space low maintenance and inviting will make the guests feel right at home.

Thoughtful Touches

Sometimes the little things can make a big impact on guests. Place a welcome card with the WiFi password on the nightstand. Try to predict your guest's needs! Place a chocolate on their pillow, have a few bathroom accessories available they might have forgotten like a toothbrush, toothpaste, or makeup remover. Set out a few magazines to read and maybe even a small stash of snacks for an easy pick-me-up between meals. All these little thoughtful touches are sure to make your guests feel welcome.

We hope these cozy guest room ideas will make your visitors feel right at home through the holidays. Budget Blinds has a wide variety of window treatments, bedding, and pillows to help make your guest room a treat. For more information contact us today.
