How to Convert a Spare Room into a Guest Room


Create a Guest Room for Your Home in the Indianapolis Area

Here are some simple ideas for turning an additional room into a spare room whether you’re looking for a way to entertain your visitors or simply have an extra room that isn’t being used. It’s not as difficult as you might imagine!

Step One:   Decide on the look you want the converted area to have. Keep your guest room in the same style as the rest of the house if you want it to feel like a part of your home. Choose something altogether different, such as pastels, if you want it to stand out and be more flexible to varied preferences.

Step Two: Remove any debris from the accessible area. This can include anything from old photographs to soiled toys, clothing stacks, and even books and magazines. To make room for new decor, remove anything that isn’t essential.

Step Three: The following step is the most crucial. You’ll need to figure up what kind of furnishings you’d like in the space. If you have other rooms in your house that are more welcoming to visitors, keep this one as simple as possible and only add a couch and some throw pillows if needed.

Step Four: Consider renting furniture from a nearby storage facility if you don’t want to spend a lot of money on it. This is especially useful if you only require something for a short period of time (changed often anyway). It can also help make the extra space more accommodating for unexpected visitors.

Step Five: After the furniture is in place, add accessories to complete the look. A pair of huge mirrors could be the difference between success and failure. Alternatively, take a closer look at your decorations and make sure they’re in keeping with your room’s goals. This might be as simple as a modest collection of art and glass candleholders.
