Seven ways to create a guest bedroom in your home


After the clutter of Christmas there’s no better time to freshen up your home for your family to enjoy again.

Start by making sure your guest bedrooms are spick and span, with freshly laundered sheets and a welcoming vase of flowers.

Whether your guest bedroom doubles as an office, kids’ bedroom or you already have a spare room, a few welcoming touches are all you need:

1. Organise and Declutter

To turn a room into a guest room, first box up anything you don’t need and store it out of the way until your guests leave

2. Create a scent sanctuary

Open the windows for an hour to let some fresh air flow into your guest room. Add a bowl of potpourri or light a fragranced candle 30 minutes before your guests arrive. Scented drawer liners are a lovely touch, and hang lavender bags in the wardrobe.

3. Bathing beauty

Little touches like fresh towels and toiletries are thoughtful. If you’re sharing a bathroom, let your guests know when the busy times are so they can avoid them.

4. Enjoy fresh linens every day

The Lenor Infusions range gives fabrics up to seven times longer-lasting freshness. It releases scent through touch to keep fabrics fresh and fragrant for longer. Your guests will feel completely spoiled for their entire stay.

5. Mirror, mirror on the wall

A mirror means your guests can get ready in peace (and free up the bathroom). Add a wastepaper basket for cotton wool and tissues.

6. Clever storage systems

If the wardrobe in your guest bedroom is already full, invest in an over-the-door hook and some hangers. Chances are that’s all your guests will need.

7. Bedside essentials

Give your guests a bedside table with a reading lamp, jug of water and an empty box for jewellery and keys.

Enjoy up to seven days of fresh sheets with Lenor’s long-lasting formula. Available in a multitude of fragrances, including new Pink Topaz & Magnolia.

Me and my sister are both teachers and we both share a room. Unfortunately it got into a bit of a state due to paperwork everywhere, clothes, books! But holidays are here and we cleaned the room out, did some of the above and now I enjoy my room so much more. Well I'll enjoy it for the remainder of the holidays!

Excellent advice. As it gets closer to the holidays I knew that my spare room needed tidying up incase anyone chose to stop over.I bagged up so much stuff that has either gone to charity shop on on a website that buys stuff off you. The room is now tidy , clean and fresh! Lets just hope the house guests are not too drunk to appreciate it!

Within minutes Ambi Pur 3volution's scent makes its way round the whole of my house, banishing the doggy pong! I was slightly worried as most air freshners / candles/ oil burners we have tried leave me with a headache , but this is so subtle as well as doing a great job. Even my mum, who always comments about the smell of 'dog' , has said how nice our house is smelling!
