If you’re looking for a way to entertain your visitors, or just have an extra room that is not being utilized, here are some simple strategies for turning it into a spare room. It’s easier than you think!
Step One: Decide what type of aesthetic the converted space should have. If you want your guest room to feel like part of your home, keep it in the same style as the rest of the house. If you want it to stand out and be more accommodating to different tastes, go with something completely different like pastels.
Step Two: Empty out any clutter in the available space. This can be anything from old pictures to dirty toys, piles of clothing, or even books and magazines. Remove anything that is not needed to bring in new decor.
Step Three: The next step is the most important. You will want to decide what type of furniture you want in the room. If you have other rooms in your home that are more conducive to guests, you should keep this one as minimalist as possible and simply add a couch with some throw pillows if necessary.
Step Four: If you don’t want to spend a lot of money on furniture, consider renting it from a nearby storage center. This can be especially helpful if you need something very temporary (changed often anyway). It can also make the extra space more accommodating for company when unexpected guests arrive.
Step Five: Once the furniture is installed, add accessories that will complement the space. A pair of oversized mirrors could make all the difference. Or take a closer look at your decorations and make them in line with your goals for this room. This can be as simple as glass candleholders and a small collection of art.
