Ask a Designer - Guest room
"Any feedback on our tiny guest room?"
Halo Design's suggestion:
I think a guest room should feel comfortable, cozy and welcoming! Great start so far! A few suggestions that I have for you:
Orient the bed along the wall that currently has artwork. Then you could add a headboard which would add comfort to your guest sitting up in bed as well as add a great aesthetic touch.
You can purchase bed bases with or without headboards. I have included a photo of the simple bed frame from west elm. It comes with a separate headboard that you can purchase.
I have also had custom headboards made by local upholsterers. If you select a fabric (they will often provide you with some options if you prefer) that is under 20.00 sq yd it can be quite cost effective. It is often cleated on the back so that it can be mounted to the wall at your desired height depending on the height of your bed base/mattress.
A mirror can often make a room feel larger...I have included a simple white framed one from Ikea but there are so many options out there!
