How can I prep my spare bedroom to make guests feel at home?

With the right decor and amenities, any room can transform into a comfortable, cozy getaway. In addition to tidying up and making space in the closet for hanging clothes, here are a few thoughtful ideas to make your guests feel like they never left home.

How can I give my room its own personality?

For starters, define your sleep or study space by wallpapering one wall with an eyecatching peel & stick print. Next, add a soft rug to unify both areas. Stage a wall shelf or bookcase near the desk to keep supplies within reach. Surround yourself with inspirational artwork, fi ll the air with essential oils and tell the Google home device to turn up your favorite playlist.

How can I maximize storage throughout my home?

Beyond closet space, there’s more ways to store in a home than one might think. For starters, declutter what you do not need and organize what’s left by utilizing freestanding pantries, baskets and other smartly designed solutions.

        

How can I mix and match patterns in the bedroom?

The key to blending patterns is all about balance. Choose prints with similar elements like color, style or scale. The first pattern should be oversized so it makes the strongest statement. Additional patterns should be half the scale of the first, and include complementary colors. You’ll want to mix in solid color accents to keep the final look from overwhelming the eye.

             

How do I furnish a small dorm room so it feels more like home?

Prioritizing the comfort level is the best way to make a small dorm space feel uncluttered and inviting. Choose comforting pieces to remind you of home. Soft bed linens, a cushioned chair, plush rug, wall decor, photo collages and hideaway storage maximize the homey appeal of a college dorm.

            
           
             

           
              
             

How do I prep my bedroom for warmer temperatures without sacrificing style or comfort?

            

During the summer months, layers of breathable linens and plump pillows are key to getting a full night’s rest. Draw the curtains, cue the ceiling fan and sleep easier all season long.

How do I update my home for the spring season without spending a lot of time or money?

                                     

Bring in the shades of spring with pillows and throws in brighter colors. Open windows and switch out curtains for sheers to really let the light in. Simplify the amount of decor and opt for colorful artwork. Also, a fresh coat of lighter paint can really make a difference.
