Ways to Refresh Your Guest Room for the Summer

Whether you’re renting out a room on Airbnb or you have guests coming to visit over the summer break, make them feel welcome with a beautifully put-together bedroom that they can call their own.

It’s the little details that count and we’ve got some brilliant bedroom ideas to make their stay unforgettable…

Mix and match

Make a spare room guest-ready on a tight budget by adding just a splash of summer color to an all-white scheme. Display a trio of flowers in glass vases and pick out their hues with vibrant velvet cushions. As a final touch, fill shelves with vintage books for a little reading material to help guests wind down before bed.

Freshen up with flowers

Fresh flowers are a key finishing touch for any host, but these days faux examples are just as good at bringing the sunny season inside. It’s a great option for a room that gets occasional use and saves throwing away the dead blooms after each guest.

Create privacy

Natural wood blinds are practical for privacy, calming and they work with almost any style of decor. Great with wooden floorboards, the simple style at the window means you can go for a pretty country scheme of cornflower and meadow blue.

Add evening ambiance

Small details make all the difference so provide a few scented candles for guests to light if they wish, with a box of matches nearby to encourage them. Pretty tealight holders are also a great budget-friendly alternative.

Budget in a bathroom

Ensuite bathrooms are the ultimate guest room luxury which will give your visitors the privacy they can expect from a hotel. Follow the design formula by echoing the bedroom decor in the bathroom for a streamlined and professional finish.

Choose light tones

When placed on a white backdrop floral prints are cool, crisp and fresh. Matching curtains keep the look coherent and homely. Add simple furniture such as a pale wood dressing table and white metal chair to keep the look light and airy.
