How to create a beautiful low-cost guest room

When you have guests stay over, the last thing you want is for them to feel uncomfortable or like they’re in the way. A well-decorated and comfortable guest room can make all the difference. However, if you’re on a tight budget, creating a guest room that looks welcoming can be daunting. Fear not! In this blog post, we’ve put together an easy guide for creating a beautiful low-cost guest room. With our help, you’ll have guests lined up to stay over! 


Make room

If you have fallen into the habit of using your spare room as an unofficial storage unit, it’s time to clear it out. Ensure that you have enough room to comfortably accommodate a bed, side tables, a dresser and an additional armchair for guests to relax in. If an item is not for your guest to use, it has no place in the room. 

Invest in a comfy bed

A good mattress will help your guests get a good night’s sleep to enjoy their time with you fully rested. And remember – quality does not have to mean expensive. There are plenty of quality, affordable mattresses out there. So when you’re shopping for a guest room mattress, don’t be afraid to ask about sales or look for discounts.  

Add a touch of comfort

One of the most important things to remember when creating a guest room is to focus on the small details. A few well-chosen accessories can make all the difference in creating a space that feels inviting and comfortable. Throw blankets, cushions, and free artwork prints are all great ways to add a touch of luxury without spending a lot of money. 

Repurpose and recycle

Create a comfortable space by recycling existing household belongings. If you have an extra dresser collecting dust, you can turn it into a nightstand, a TV stand or a storage space for extra linens and towels. By being creative with the pieces you already have, you can save money and create a stylish and inviting guest room.
