How to Convert a Spare Room into a Guest Room

If you want to entertain your visitors or simply have an extra room that is underutilized, here are some simple strategies for converting it into a spare room. It’s much simpler than you think!

Step One:   Determine the aesthetic you want for the converted space. Keep your guest room in the same style as the rest of the house if you want it to feel like a part of it. Choose something completely different, such as pastels, if you want it to stand out and be more accommodating to different tastes.

Step Two: Remove any clutter from the available space. This can range from old photographs to filthy toys, clothing piles, and even books and magazines. To make room for new decor, remove anything that isn’t absolutely necessary.

Step Three: The following step is crucial. You should decide what kind of furniture you want in the room. If you have other rooms in your home that are more welcoming to guests, keep this one as simple as possible, adding a couch and some throw pillows if necessary.

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 temporary (changed often anyway). It can also make the extra space more accommodating for unexpected visitors.

Step Five: Once the furniture is in place, add accessories to complete the look. A pair of large mirrors could make or break the situation. Alternatively, examine your decorations and make sure they are in line with your goals for this room. Glass candle holders and a small collection of art can suffice.
