Expecting houseguests this holiday season? These guest bedroom ideas will help you create a comforting space for your visitors!

Choose the Right Bed

When you think about guest room décor, your first thought is likely the bed. Depending on the type of guests you’re expecting over the course of the year, there are different bed set-ups to choose from. Queen-sized and king-sized bed frames work well for couples, but if you’re expecting uncoupled guests or children, you might be better off with multiple twin beds or trundle beds. Choosing daybeds for your guest room can also be great, as they offer seating options for the waking hours.

Upgrade Your Mattress

Well-rested houseguests are happy houseguests and having a reliable mattress in your guest room can make the experience more enjoyable for everyone involved. Star Furniture has mattresses in an array of sizes, types, and brands, including everything from memory foam mattresses to more affordable innerspring mattress options. Plus, all mattresses over $999 come with free shipping on your whole order.

Offer Extra Seating

If you have the space and budget, offering extra bedroom seating can be incredibly enticing for guests, especially if they want to have some alone time away from the action. Some of our favorite guest bedrooms have accent chairs or bedroom benches so visitors can relax and enjoy some quiet time during their stay.

Don’t Skimp on the Storage Space

Even if you decide not to have full-sized dressers in your guest room, having some storage space can make guests feel more at home. Try using nightstands with drawers as bedside tables, which double as clothing storage and a convenient surface next to the bed.  You could also consider putting a desk or vanity in the room so your guests will have space to get ready. Short on space? We love the idea of installing hooks for hanging luggage, coats, and other clothing items.

Pay Attention to the Details

Personalizing your guest room and paying special attention to the details can make it feel even more warm and homey for your visitors. We recommend hanging a mirror, artwork, or other decorations. You might even consider having an extra television in the room. Make sure to have a clock, wastebasket, blankets, and tissue readily available. You can even leave some of their favorite snacks, teas, or toiletries for them to enjoy during their visit.
