Now that the holidays are almost upon us, it’s a great time to make sure that your guest room is in top shape. Even if you don’t have the time for a full redesign, there are still things you can do to make your guests feel more at home in your guest room. Here are our best tips to fix up your guest room so it’s ready to go for the holidays:
1. Fix any scratches on wooden surfaces.
This is an easy way to quickly upgrade the look of all of your wooden furniture. Simple rub a walnut or pecan gently across the surface of the scratch – this will fill in the scratch, and the natural oils will ensure that it sticks.
2. Add a few extra blankets.
We all know that Minnesota winters can get pretty chilly, but your guests may not. Be sure to set an extra blanket or two at the foot of the bed to make sure that nobody wakes up with cold toes.
3. Keep the room simple.
Your guest room is not the place for all of those pictures and trinkets that you don’t know what to do with. Give those things away! Or, at the very least, stash them underneath the basement stairs. Just not in the guest room.
4. Does your guest room need some new decor? A new comforter is an easy and not-too expensive option. We all know that you can find some great deals on Black Friday. You can also give the room a fresh coat of paint using Benjamin Moore’s Natura paint. It’s no VOC, which means that you can paint to your heart’s content, and you won’t even need to crack open a window.
Also, a bonus tip: If you’d like to go the extra mile for your guests, leave a few bottles of water and some fresh flowers on the nightstand. This adds a great final touch!
