This post is all about Ideas On How To Decorate Your Guest Bedroom. Do you have an extra room in your home that you designate specifically for your guests who stay over? We have one, downstairs. And? It is a complete and utter mess! When we moved from Washington to Idaho last year, that room became a storage room, sigh. I need to clean it up and make it our guest room because we do have friends and family staying with us from time to time.
I have been researching some fun ways to organize and decorate the guest bedroom, once I get it all cleaned out. There are SO many great ideas I have found on Pinterest! Wow. Talk about some lovely ideas!
I took the BEST ideas On How To Decorate Your Guest Bedroom and added them below for your convenience. Maybe it will help me get motivated to actually clean out that room soon…
Ideas On How To Decorate Your Guest Bedroom
*Make sure the bed is inviting and comfortable!! This is definitely first and foremost! Nothing like walking into a guest room or hotel and the bed just looks uncomfortable and unappealing! Been there, done that! I want my guests to be comfy and sleep well! The Fortech Airbed (Queen) with an AlwayzAire Pump from Bestway is one of the greatest top-tier air beds you can find.
This airbed is made of dense polyester fabric and durable high gauge material and provides high levels of strength. A Fortech Airbed is 75% more puncture resistant and 150 times more impervious to scratches than a normal PVC airbed.
The Fortech Airbed has a built-in pump (110-120V), which allows the bed to inflate in 150 seconds so it is ready for guests at a moment’s notice! The pump is an easy, one-click operation and has three options for firmness, so your guests will be comfy!
Once your guests choose their level of firmness, internal sensors detect the air pressure and will continuously keep it that way throughout the night. This airbed provides the perfect pairing of comfort and support. In addition, the unique top surface and surround frame design offer advanced support and help to eliminate roll-offs.
When your guests leave, and you are ready to store the airbed, you can easily deflate it and place the flattened bed in the carrying case it comes with!
*Decor! I love decorating and when I think of decorating a guest room, I want to ensure it is a comfy type of decor. With warm colors and some electric candles spread around the room for added comfort. I will also add a nice, warm-colored fuzzy carpet in the middle of the room, a nightstand on either side of the airbed so my guests can have something to put their glass of water on and phone/etc.
Of course, a small lamp on either side of the bed would be nice too. The curtains would be a warm color, maybe cream or light brown and I would also hang some pictures of quotes/sayings around the room.
*Small fan! I don’t know about you, but I cannot sleep without a fan or the noise from a fan, can you? It is always nice to have a fan in the room for your guests. That way if they are hot or can’t sleep without the noise of a fan going, then you have it covered for them! This will also help little kids sleep more soundly in a strange home.
*Fresh, warm blankets draped nicely on a chair! That way, if your guests get cold at night, they can grab a clean blanket to put on the airbed! Nothing is worse than getting chilled at night and you are staying over at someone’s house and they are sleeping!
What do you do? Freeze all night long? Don’t make your guests feel uncomfortable and cold. Leave nice blankets draped over a chair for their immediate use.
*Add some pretty flowers to a vase! They can be fresh or fake, but adding flowers to any room definitely, gives a pop of fun to any room!

I like the idea of a small fan. I’d add a small clock radio since I like having one.

I’m considering decorating my guestroom, too. I like the idea of the little fan even though I have an overhead one. I’d also like a selection of books/reading material as well as a comfy chair with a reading light.
I’m the same way. It takes me a long time during the winter to get used to not sleeping with a fan on.
Austin H. says
Plenty of clothes hangers and dresser drawers to utilize are great. That air bed looks great to have.
Richard Hicks says
Like to add snacks and a candy bowl
Annemarie Z. says
You can always leave some lovely stationary paper and some pens for them in case they feel like writing.
Lesley F says
I like to have extra pillows & blankets in case a guest may need them
I would just make it very cozy with enough storage room for a week’s visit.
Christine W says
I put a basket of sample size shampoos, conditioner, hand cream, etc. on the nightstand and extra pillows and blankets on the chair.
Jeri Accardo says
I’ll be having a spare room after we get a house after the flood.
We have a fold out couch for a guest bed.

Soothing neutral colors promoting comfort and rest. Some people have intense dislike for certain colors, so keeping simple and neutral provides comfort

Sarah Oswald says
I wish I had a guest room but thanks for sharing all these Ideas for when or if I do get a free room for guests.
Renee Wiedower says
Assorted travel size toiletries and a combo charger are great additions to a basket of goodies
I think a guest bedroom should always have a television, radio, chair for relaxing and some snacks. Just little healthy snacks that are not messy like a granola bar. Because sometimes your guests are just a bit hungry and don’t want to head to the kitchen for fear of waking other’s up.
Brenda W. says
I have a stand where I put extra sheets and blankets in.
Martine G. Gibbs says
Gail Weisblat says
I keep different textures of pillows for guests so that they can pick what makes them comfy for a good nights sleep. I aways leave an extra blanket at the foot of the bed.I also like to leave a small basket of lotions on the bedside table . And a really good reading light.

Adding the fan to the room was very thoughtful.
Diane B says
Creative and fun ideas!

Good call on the fan/soothing white noise. A nightlight is also a must in a strange environment. And NEVER forget the smoke detector.

Unfortunately, I do not have a guest room. If we do have overnight guests, they will stay in the childrens’ rooms or a hotel. I do like all your ideas though.
Ellen Beck says
I like all your ideas. Usually when we have people over, I put out towels, and toiletries so they dont have to guess where things are. It makes it so much easier for them if they are awake earlier or there when we arent.
donna l holder says

Victoria Scott says
I love the idea of having a small fan! One thing I always do when I’m having guests stay over is leave a tray with some waters and snacks in their room 🙂
monique s says
I like the little table idea…..functional but does not take up too much room
JEN D says
My son and I have been working on an upstairs guest bedroom for a year now. Someone gave him a high quality futon – the color is Superman blue, but it is kept in the bed position, made up and ready for company. He also uses the space as a media room. The bed faces book shelves flanking a flat screen t.v. My son is an artist so the pottery and art were done by him. He purchased a night stand and two storage ottomans for the end of the bed (all on clearance). We added a tray table for the other night stand and he has some lockers for storing extra art and media supplies. There are blinds on the windows, but we’d like to add curtains and also an area rug. We shopped the house for pillows and bedding, keeping costs low. For a headboard we attached two shutters, hung horizontally, to the wall.
Paula K says
I turned my extra/guest bedroom into my craft room complete with a TV and video games. Ok, maybe it’s a woman cave, LOL

The little tables are a must for decorating. It really can fill in empty areas. We also always keep a fan in our guest room for someone’s comfort.
Debbie Welchert says
Your guest bedroom sounds wonderful and one I would feel really comfortable in. I love the fan idea. I too use a fan all year round.
I love these ideas. We turned the guest bedroom into a home office but I do need to get an airbed.
Cynthia Conley says
I like to leave a few books and magazines on the nightstand.
Christina Graham says
The fan is a nice touch especially in warmer states. I also put a bowl of travel sized shampoos and soaps on the nightstand.
Pam Flynn says
I’m trying to get my guest bedroom arranged better with a comfy chair, nightstand, & table lighting.
I always have spare interchangeable linens in case of accidents. Guests feel better not having to create a laundry situation.
Sandy Klocinski says
I always provide extra blankets.
I wish I ad extra bedroom to many peoples in my home But love to read the suggestions you have
I always make sure that there are extra blankets and pillows and reading lights.

I like the draping of blankets over a chair idea.
