HOW TO CREATE A LUXURIOUS SPARE ROOM

CHOOSE A STYLE OR THEME

We understand that every room in your home is unique and that it should have its own theme. We do however suggest that you carry one overarching theme or style through your entire home.
Your spare room should have a style or theme otherwise it might become the ‘dumping zone' in your home. When decorating your spare room, choose a theme and have fun.
 
It could be a coastal scheme with beach artworks and a subdued colour palette, for example. We have a wide range of décor pieces as well as beautiful artwork that would perfectly complement a beach themed spare bedroom. The theme you choose when decorating a guest bedroom doesn’t have to be super literal either. It could be a colour palette that you’ve pulled from other rooms in your homes such as your living room or master bedroom.
 

CHOOSE YOUR ADVENTURE: BED OR SLEEPER SOFA

This choice depends on how much space you have in your home in what your personal preferences are. If you have a larger home with many rooms, you’re likely to have a dedicated room for guests with a bed. But smaller homes might have a guest bedroom that doubles as a home office or any other number of other purposes.
 
Whether you choose to create a dedicated spare room with an entire bedroom suite or prefer to have an extra living space and opt for a sleeper couch – we have a range of sleeper couches as well as luxurious wooden bedroom sets to create the perfect sanctuary for your guests.
 

HAVE BEDDING WITH MULTIPLE LAYERS ON-HAND

If you have opted for a full bedroom suite in your guest bedroom, this is where the fun really starts. You will be in your absolute element styling it up with heaps of pillows, cushions, duvets as well as throws. Honestly, in our opinion the more the better. At Leather Gallery, we have curated a wide range of scatter cushions to effortlessly add chic and comfort to any room in your home, including your spare room. Soft, luxurious and stylish our range of scatter cushions are available in an array of fabrics, sizes, colour and patterns. We love scatter cushions and believe that no room in your home is fully dressed without a scatter cushion.
 

EVEN THE SMALLEST ROOMS NEED A BEDSIDE TABLE

When decorating your guest bedroom do not forget about the smaller details. We believe that no bedroom is complete without a bedside table. Whether you opt for a smaller lightweight bedside table or the very traditional sturdy bedside table that features pull out drawers, a side table in your spare room is a must. The last thing you want to do is force guests to put all of that stuff on the floor. Not a cute look, especially when water spills all over your carpet or rug.

INCLUDE A LAMP SOMEWHERE IN THE SPACE

Guests often retire to bed but don’t go right to sleep. We all do it, we go to bed but love to have some time to snuggle up with a book, magazine, or scroll through social media before falling asleep. A side lamp on a bedside table or even a floor lamp near a sleeper couch is essential. It’s not only perfect from a functional point of view, but it also sets the mood in a room as no other design element can.
It’s always nice to have a side lamp on when showing guests to their room. It sets such a nice ambience in the space and lets your guests feel welcomed.
 

DÉCOR ABOVE THE BED IS KEY

It’s a nice finishing touch to hang a piece of art across from the bed. A scenic artwork can set the tone and complete your spare room. You could consider a photograph of a beach or landscape. It gives guests something calm and interesting to take in as they drift off. It is also an understated way of creating a focal point and adding a lovely pop of colour to the room.

ROUND OFF YOUR LOOK WITH A STACK OF BOOKS

It is always a good idea to add a stack of magazines or your favourite book in your guest bedroom. It is not only a décor aspect but it gives your guests something to do before they doze off to sleep or if they are early risers.
