For many homeowners, the guest bedroom goes forgotten, used as a makeshift home office or an extra storage space when not hosting family or friends. However, we all want to offer guests a welcoming place to rest. Furthermore, a neglected guest bedroom is a missed opportunity to create a cohesive design aesthetic throughout your whole home. Here are some tips for easy adjustments you can make for a cozier guest bedroom that offers your friends and family a home away from home: 

Incorporate Multiple Textures

One of the simplest ways to create a warm, welcoming guest bedroom is by incorporating multiple textures. Choosing soft but varied textiles, such as blankets and throw pillows, and using wood elements with distinctive finishes and staining effects will make a space that is usually unoccupied feel more lived-in. 

Use Soothing Colors

While your guest bedroom should reflect your personal taste, it's also important to keep your guests in mind. Maintaining a color scheme that will appeal to anyone is an ideal strategy. Soothing neutral tones and light colors create a relaxing environment that will keep all of your guests feeling comfortable and welcomed. 

Add Interior Shutters

When you stay in another person's home, you sometimes feel like you don't have your usual level of privacy. Adding features like decorative interior shutters can help your guests feel as though the guest bedroom space is their own private oasis. These ideas barely scrape the surface of all the exciting ways you can create a cozy guest bedroom space. Volterra Architectural Products offers a wide range of faux wood products that can complete guest bedrooms of all sizes and tastes.
