Ideas to create a welcoming space

Creating a well thought out, stylish guest bedroom ideas will help set the scene for home away from home. Whether you’re looking for design ideas for a master suite or a loft conversion, here you’ll find lots of inspiration to suit any age, style or budget.

1. Get the lighting right

Varying light levels can play havoc with sleep, but you can make sure your guests have a comfortable night by choosing curtains with a blackout lining.

They will reduce the light filtering into your guest room plus help reduce heat loss during colder weather, so you can create a snug and restful environment.

In the daytime when you want to make the most of the natural light without compromising your guest's privacy, pair your blackout curtains with voiles. The lightweight, semi-sheer fabric will create a light and bright ambience while obscuring the view from the outside during the day.

2. Add texture

Textural fabrics are amazing for the cooler months when we want to snuggle in and keep the chill out, so make sure your guests are warm by layering plenty of soft furnishings like throws in chunky knit, faux-fur and felted fabrics to curl up in.

The boucle range of fabrics in our Abigail Ahern range has a nubby, teddy-bear like texture, perfect for injecting a balance of warmth, cosiness and texture into a space. The loops of thread create a bumpy, cocooning texture that’s so rarely seen in window dressings, your guests will see you're really ahead of the trend.

3. Grown-up spaces

If you're hosting young guests, our range of children's blinds and curtains has plenty of playful patterns and prints to suit tots to teens. Rigorously tested to stand the test of time, these fabrics are designed to seamlessly fit into changing tastes, easily slipping into multiple décor revamps through the years as your guests grow up. 

We’ve chosen a Wirl Kiwi Roman blind for this minimalist bedroom, with neutral walls and playful furnishings creating a simple and sophisticated look.

4. Create a calming oasis

If space is an issue, a day bed is a great solution for creating a versatile, shabby chic space, ideal for lounging by day and snoozing the night away.

Layer voile curtains for day time privacy control with luxury velvet curtains like Bailey Taffy so your guests can close the curtains for extra cosiness at night.
