Guest Room Ideas

A welcoming guest room will make your family and friends feel right at home when they come to visit – it only takes a few touches and adding a little comfortable bedroom décor to transform a standard spare room into a haven.

The Guest Room Essentials

First things first, these essentials are needed to make your spare room comfortable for your guests, but they don’t have to be basic! You can add a little personality to the room, they’ll love the personal touch and it will show the effort that you have put in.

Sweet Dreams

A super comfy bed will make your guests’ stay even more comfortable, but if yours isn’t quite up to scratch there’s no need to splash out on a brand new mattress, all you need is a mattress topper! From amazing memory foam to luxury mattress toppers, there’s something for every budget and every size bed from single to king size.

Shop memory foam mattress toppers with great discounts at The Hut here.

To make sure your guests are as snug as a bug throughout the chilly Christmas period, give them the option of an electric blanket to heat up during the night.

Unexpected Guests

Over Christmas there’s always the chance that unexpected guests will pop round, but you can be prepared without taking up too much time or space by investing in an air bed and sleeping bags. A quick and easy way to make more room at the inn!

The Finishing Touches


Even the smallest candle can warm up a cold room (even if only to the eye!) and fill the space with welcoming scents.

But if you don’t want the real thing, opt for battery powered RC Candles. They look just like real candles without the danger of a naked flame. Perfect for adding a little comfort when there are children around.

Treat your guests to a fresh bunch of flowers in one of our beautiful vases. Flowers brighten up any room and show that you’ve gone the extra mile.

When is it more important to know the time than on Christmas day? Make sure your guests rise in time for Christmas dinner with our range of clocks.
