For a weary traveler, a stylish guest room creates comfort a hotel can’t match. A guest room should have the luxurious feel of a hotel with the charm of an inviting home, to create an inviting guest suite design, read our tips.


A Place to Put Their Things

No one wants to live out of a suitcase – even when it’s just a weekend getaway. Digging through wrinkled clothes looking for a hairdryer is the worst way to start the day. Instead, make sure there’s plenty of space for your guest to store away their things and hang their clothes with ample closet space, dressers, nightstands, and hangers. Consider creating a walk-in closet with mirrors or vanity seating so your guest can prepare for their nights out in style. Here’s the Gordon James guide to designing a walk-in closet or dressing room so your guests experience luxury and convenience whenever they open it.

A Place to Be Pampered

Guest bathrooms are often pushed into corners and shoved aside, but creating a luxurious retreat for guests elevates the space and improves their visit. While they’re away from home, a luxurious bathroom is a relaxing place to start their day and a soothing and serene place to end it. A single slipper chair, a spacious ottoman will encourage them to treat the room like a luxurious day spa. Here, they can sit back and relax after busy vacation days. If you’re looking for some more inspiration, take a look at these beautiful bathrooms.

A Place to Rest Their Head

Do you host out of town guests that need a quiet place to get some extra sleep? Read our blog on master bedroom locations and keep these in mind as you design your guest bedroom in your dream home.
