Nestled away as their own spacious retreat, having a guest bedroom means that you will always have cosy spots to unwind in. Gone are the days of a dust-gathering, squeaky trundle bed in a far-flung corner of the house. In our guest bedrooms, visitors are just a stone’s throw from the heart of the home, while still having their own privacy away from the master and other bedrooms.

Most importantly, with a guest bedroom, you want the space to feel like an extension of your home, rather than an afterthought. At Simonds, we want to help you create a guest bedroom space that you’ll be proud to show off to your friends and family, which is why we’ve provided our top tips for creating a chic and comfortable guest bedroom space.

To get started, don’t be afraid to incorporate subtle textures and dreamy hints of colour. While experimenting with bolder colours can be a bit of a minefield, choosing to feature natural, soft shades of pink, blue or green, which almost appear as more neutral, is an easy way to liven up any space without straying too far away from your comfort zone.

We also love to create a more bespoke feel with the Haymes Paint Artisan Collection, as the range adds a textured look to walls and brings out tonal subtleties to accentuate the highlights and lowlights in a room. Don’t spend hours getting lost in different shades of white, our interior design qualified Gallery Consultants are here to help you!

Embracing light-filled spaces is key to creating a warm and inviting room for guests, and skylights are one of the most effective ways to do so. Did you know that Simonds can incorporate skylights into your new home? We love to take advantage of natural lighting and our design team always looks to how we can best maximise the sunlight in our home designs.

If your budget is a bit tighter, consider incorporating larger windows to create a similar effect. Easy design tricks, such as placing a large mirror opposite a window, help to reflect light and give the illusion of a larger space. Choosing the right window furnishings is also important to inject a relaxed-feel to your room, and we can’t go past Australian and family-owned Lovelight and their range of sheer curtains for a touch of softness and sophistication.

To complete the room, cosy and considered spaces such as a small study or mirror nook are thoughtful touches that guests will really appreciate. They also provide an extremely useful, quiet space when working or studying from home, and allow you to keep work separate from the high-traffic living areas. We can easily add convenient LED lighting or bar spots to these cosy corners, and adding timber-look accents into a nook can also beautifully harmonise monochromatic neutral spaces. Many of our new home designs feature a nook or study space in the floor plan, as we know it’s a sought-after trend that’s here to stay.
