Last week, we featured some creative ideas on how to get the most out of your unfinished or underutilized basement. One of the best ways to make this space useful, as mentioned, is to create a cozy guest bedroom nook.
The official start of summer is just one week away. If you’ll have guests in town over the next few months, getting a suitable space together for them is crucial. Your home will serve as a vacation getaway. Is your basement prepared? If not, these beach-inspired guest rooms – along with a few tips – can help you to prepare a basement guest room that everyone will love.
A week or two before guests arrive, it might be a good idea to spend some time in the guest room to get a feel for how it will be experienced. Does the remote control need new batteries? Is the lighting too dim? Square these things away sooner rather than later.
Don’t be afraid of bright colors and summer themes. At all times, think: vacation getaway! What type of room would you want to relax in at someone else’s home? Use that as a guide to dream up a fresh, colorful and coastal experience.
For couples, families and multiple guests, consider designing a room with two beds to maximize space.
Spoil guests with reading material. Newly released books, magazines, the day’s newspaper and even literature or brochures about the local area and attractions will keep guests entertained and informed.
For an added touch of southern hospitality, add a scented candle to the nightstand or place chocolates on the pillows. These small touches will speak volumes to guests.
