RL Tips: 5 Ways to Style Your Guest Room

Create a cozy room that guests will surely love


Filipinos are known to be hospitable and most of the time, we have guests and friends staying in the house. To make their stopover memorable and relaxing, make sure that the guest room is well-designed and comfortable. Here are a couple of handy hints that will help you create a functional space.

Have enough closet space

Add a small table to clear the space under the bed where your guest can keep their suitcase. Make sure that the closet has enough space where they hang clothes neatly.

Add an extra table or chair if the space allows

Place an upholstered armchair or side chair in the room with a table and lamp close by. Your guests might have work to do during their stay so these pieces will be handy.

Invest on a comfy and sturdy bed

We're sure you want your guests to sleep comfortably at night. If you have a budget to consider, think about getting an air mattress. You can place this on top of a box spring, a sofa bed mattress, or on the floor.

Prepare the essentials.

Always have a set of toiletries and basic necessities available for your guests. Provide extra tissue, soap, shampoo, towels, and even gadget chargers.

Clear the bedside table.

Allow your guests to place their personal belongings within their reach. Consider a few items for the bedside table. In a guest room, less is more--more space means a more comfortable stay. Keep only the most useful items in a room, like a clock or a lamp.
