The guest room can become a magnet for clutter in the household. But before a guest comes, it’s important to find a home for each piece that’s found its way to this space.

The colours chosen for a guest room will largely impact the look and feel of the space. However, this doesn’t mean DIYers can’t be daring and adventurous with their choices.
For instance, painting the guest room a dark colour, such as a deep navy blue or forest green with shelf plants, will make the room feel more intimate and cosier.
On the other end of the spectrum, lighter colours such as creams and beiges will create a fresh, airy, clean feeling in the guest room. And with the assistance of lamps, the creamy palette will reflect the light around the room as a warm, soothing glow.
Consider adding pieces to the room to enhance its style and appeal, such as art to blank walls, and ornaments to shelves that reflect the theme you’ve chosen for the room.
In doing so, you’ll create a homely, desirable and intriguing space for guests to unwind.
Lastly, dusting, vacuuming, changing the sheets, and opening the windows in the bedroom before visitors arrive will ensure the room looks and smells its best.
Using one or more of the DIY hacks above is a quick and easy way to change a spare room from drab and outdated, to an appealing and relaxing place for friends and family to rest during their stay.
