Making Over a Guest Bedroom in Time for the Holidays

September 9, 2010

Summers over, the kids are back in school and before you know it the holidays will be here again. For many people that means houseguest of course and opening up the guest bedroom again. If your spare room is looking a little dowdy though don’t despair. There is still plenty of time to make some remodeling and decoration changes to have it looking its best long before family and friends start arriving. Here are some ideas:

Flooring – If the carpet in your guest bedroom has seen better days now is the perfect time to replace it. Re carpeting one room is fast and affordable and there some really great deals to be had right now. If on the other hand you want to try something completely different laminate flooring might be a possibility well worth exploring. It is easy to install and can mimic anything from hardwood to marble at a fraction of the cost.

Window Treatments – Try to avoid the “matchy matchy” thing when picking out new window treatments for a guest room. A set of drapes that matches the comforter may work well in your own bedroom but given that several different people may be using the guest room over the course of the year keep things a little more understated.

A high quality blind installed in conjunction with several different colored interchangeable sheer drapery panels is one elegant solution to the problem. Put up the pick when your teenage neice is in town but then change it for a more neutral color when Grandpa comes calling.

Guest Bathroom – If you are fortunate enough to have a guest bathroom as well take a look at that as well before the holiday season starts. Nasty paint job ruining the overall look of the space? Why not have ceramic tile installed instead? It is far easier to clean and take care of and with all the color and design options available in ceramic tile today it is an easy and affordable way to give your guest bathroom a whole new look for less.
