Designing the Perfect Guest Bedroom

Designing the Perfect Guest Bedroom

Planning to host guests over the holidays? Or maybe you have visitors throughout the whole year. We have some tips for designing a beautiful and comfortable guest bedroom for your visitors.

Choose the Right Colors

First things first, pick the right colors to paint your guest bedroom.

The paint you use can add that dramatic flair you are looking for, just make sure it matches well with your décor. Also, pay attention to the amount of light that comes into the room, this is going to impact which color you should go with. With more light entering the room, you can experiment with darker colors.

Red Wine

You can never go wrong with a deep red wine color. The color gives off a beautiful crisp American feel and pairs well with all shades of blues.


A rosy, soft pink is a timeless color that pairs well with navy décor.


Yellow is an invigorating color that pairs well with creams and sage. The sunny color gives off a farmhouse feel.


This deep shade of green is a little intense and mysterious. Think about using this color on an accent wall.


A dark shade of blue that is mystical and makes rooms feel larger.

Light Lavender

The spring color is fresh and pairs well with darker purples for a two-tone look.

Adding Décor and More

Spice up a guest bedroom with fun décor and the right design.

Start by picking a theme. The options are endless.

Popular themes:

  • Farmhouse
  • World Travel
  • Bohemian
  • Southwestern
  • Retro
  • Coastal

A fun theme to go with is a travel theme. You can achieve this by adding travel souvenirs and cool artwork from around the world.

Or, to make it a little more personal by adding family photos around the room.

When it comes to organizing the room, think about what you would want in a guest room.


  • Clock
  • Closet (or drawers for clothes)
  • Comfortable bed
  • Nightstand
  • Fan
  • Good lighting
  • If you can, a window is always nice

Keep in mind that you want your guest bedroom to feel welcoming. Don’t go too over the top with the décor where guests feel afraid to touch anything. Keep it simple, inviting, and have fun with it!
