Preparing a Guest Bedroom For The Holidays can be quite a daunting task when you think about what to do, what to buy, and how much to spend.

Tips to Prepare a Guest Bedroom For The Holidays

1. Get rid of all the children’s toys, games and clutter first.

This step is important because it means that you can actually get your guest room organized. Without this step, you won’t have a place for children to play that isn’t cluttered with toys.

2. Add some new furniture.

This might seem simple but sometimes when planning your guest room, we forget to think of what exactly will be included in it. Most likely there will be a bed, night stand, table and chair but adding some nice new pieces can turn a guest bedroom into a cozy and inviting space. Throw pillows and throws are also great additions to add additional comfort and warmth to the space.

3. Buy a new bed set.

A lot of times when you buy a new bed, you get the entire set and that’s what your guests will see first. It’s important to remember to keep the rest of the room looking nice and tidy while making sure the bed looks inviting so your guests can relax and enjoy their stay.

4. Add some art on the walls.

It can be something simple as frames with photos to something larger like framed art work or even a collage that you make yourself out of old magazines and family photos or something they might appreciate in their home country that you have copied on paper or even printed from your printer.

5. Add a nice rug.

Rugs are a good way to add some warmth and softness to any room including the guest bedroom. A nice wool area rug by the bed is a great option that will make your guests feel at home. Antique rugs are also really beautiful and can add some character to any space, just be sure to lay it down somewhere you don’t mind getting scratched or dirty in case it needs to be cleaned before putting it down in your guest bedroom.
