Do you have a guest room in your home? If so, how often is it occupied with guests? How do you have it decorated?

Well! Good guest room decor should make your guests feel relaxed and welcomed, as though your home is a "home away from home." Stick with a soothing color scheme and fill the room with decorative furnishings that have practical uses. Consider the amenities that a nice hotel room might offer and strive to provide the same level of comfort and convenience with a greater personal touch.


  • The way a room smells can be just as important as the way a room looks. Spray your guest room with a light, non-overpowering air freshener or deodorizer. Choose a calming scent, like lavender, to make guests feel relaxed. Otherwise, choose a warm scent, like vanilla, to make guests feel more at home.
  • Plug a power strip into one of the electrical outlets. In today’s technology-driven society, most guests will have multiple electronic devices that they may need to charge. A power strip with multiple outlets on it will give them all the space they need to charge whatever they might have.
