Guest bedroom ideas to create a home from home for visitors


As we look forward to inviting close friends and family into our homes again, our quick guide to getting spare rooms guest ready, with timeless furniture and beautiful accessories, will help you to create a warm and welcoming space your guests won’t want to leave… 

Pensham Guest Bed and Trundle – from £475

Home Office By Day, Snug Retreat By Night

For guest rooms that also function as daytime workspaces (more so since 2020 than ever), our hideaway Pensham Dove Grey Guest Bed and Trundle is ideal for when guests come to stay. 

One visitor or two, this bed can be pulled out and kept flat, or propped to create a spacious and comfortable double bed. 

(Also available in Pure White and as a bundle with two mattresses.) 

Chantilly Warm White Single Door Wardrobe – £525

Upgrading Attics

Sloped ceilings are no longer a problem for occasional visitors with our versatile and space saving storage options. 

The popular Chantilly Warm White Single Door Wardrobe is ideal for guest rooms and narrow spaces with a choice of storage options, while the smaller Pensham Pure White Combi Wardrobe, with its hanging rail and removable shelves, can fit nicely in smaller rooms with alcoves and low ceilings. 

Tip: Position beds and seating under sloping ceilings so guests have room to stand.

Hatherley Duvet Covers – from £65

Perfectly Inviting

A quick and simple update, but an effective one. Layer up fresh bed linens with plumped up fluffy pillows to give guests the most comfortable and blissful night’s sleep. 

Our new Hatherley bedding, with pretty lace detail, is available in blue, natural and grey and has a laundered look that requires minimal ironing (great for guest bedrooms).

Instantly Warm And Welcoming

Let your guests control the temperature with cosy blankets and sumptuous throws, like this irresistibly soft Throw With Cashmere, handy for the end of a guest bed on chilly nights.

Mirror Mirror

It’s no secret that mirrors add light and brightness to any room (making small bedrooms feel bigger) and houseguests will almost always appreciate a full-length mirror while living out of a suitcase. 

Available in different finishes, shapes and sizes to suit every room, shop our range of beautiful dressing table, floor, round and wall mirrors.

Madison Smoked Glass Pendant – £75

Hit The Lights

Layering up ambient ceiling lights with soft, but functional bedside or pendant lights creates more of a relaxing mood and also ensures your guests can safely move around an unfamiliar room in the middle of the night if they need to. 

Shop our neutral, bold and wonderfully unique lights.

Make a Statement

Winged Blanket Box – £240

More Is More

The closest of house guests might feel uncomfortable asking for extra blankets or bath towels, so give them more than they need.

This stylish Winged Blanket Box is a convenient and practical way to hide away spares, not to mention it creates a perfect spot for bringing guests breakfast in bed and a perch to get ready for the day.
