A cool idea for a spare bedroom

28 May 14 Author:Michelle Gaffaney

The next time a guest comes to stay with you, knock their socks off with a beautiful, quirky guest room.

Throw out the pink chintz and bring in the modern with striking colours and a much more modern look.

It’s time to talk storage

The secret to a successful guest room is not filling it with too much stuff – easier said than done, but it’s possible! If you’re struggling to squeeze in enough storage in your home, talk to us – we love spotting those overlooked corners that could be used for storage and building custom-made units to suit individual needs. It’s nothing short of life-changing for you, and incredibly satisfying for us! Over on there are loads of stylish ideas for fitting more storage into your guest room – take a look! 

Make it a visit to remember

Once your guest room is cleared of clutter, we can start to craft your guest room’s new look. Would a bed on a raised platform with a sofa underneath work for you? Climbing a ladder to get into bed will give your guests an unforgettable sense of adventure, and they’ll love having their own private sofa for chilling out. Maybe you’ve got a growing nephew or grandchild who would love to have a more grown-up place to sleep when they visit. We can help you make the spare room a place your guests will want to return to again and again.

Tricks of the Trade

When you’ve been in the business for as long as we have, you learn a thing or two about making even the tiniest box room look gorgeous. This blog from One Kind Design gives away a few design secrets: open-bottomed furniture, reflective surfaces, splashes of bright colour. We can help you with custom-made fittings, colour schemes and choosing the crucial finishing touches like mirrors and rugs. There’s no reason your box room shouldn’t be beautiful!
