When creating a guest bedroom, think back to the last time you stayed in a hotel. That feeling of comfort and luxury is what you are trying to achieve.

The bed sets the mood and acts as the focal point of your room. Depending on your décor palette, rich warm wood tones or soft lush fabrics can help make the bed inviting to guests. Bassett’s Custom Upholstered Paris bed with its beautiful arched-shaped tufted headboard and proportioned wings makes a stunning focal point and adds an element of sophistication and elegance to a guest bedroom.

An open nightstand with books or magazines is a nice touch. A charging nightstand or small desk allows guests to charge their electronics or use their laptop with ease.

Add a bench or chair at the end of the bed for guests to relax, or provide storage for an extra blanket guests might need on a cold winter night. With a custom ottoman or bench you can choose your shape, size and fabric to suit your guest room.

Lush bedding and a comfy mattress is a must. Lots of pillows, duvets and an extra blanket dress a bed and make it inviting for guests.

A nice area rug with some pattern and rich colours can centre the entire room and and soften wood floors.

Artwork, accessories and other finishing touches are the perfect place to reflect your own personal taste within the room.


One thing I love to do is have the room ready with soft plush towels and a fluffy bathrobe for that extra touch.
