The summer season is quickly approaching and for those who have the space for a guest room, it’s time to think about fixing it up. Upgrading any room in your house can be very costly, but it is possible for it to be done on a budget. All it takes is a bit of planning, and some creative ideas to get started. Below are a few ideas to help you get started.
If you have an old armoire that can be fixed up and used for this room, you can upgrade and add it for extra closet space. If you don’t have an armoire then visit your local thrift shops and look for a nice cabinet that can be sanded, and repainted. Paint the armoire to match the same color of your room design. You will also want to take the doors off the armoire, so that it can be used as an open closet. Place a bar in the cabinet that can be used to hang clothing in the closet. You will also want to add a top shelf to the closet as well. I like the idea of putting baskets on the top of the armoire to keep the small items in the closet.
Power Strip Addition
We live in the day of electronics so it is important to add a power strip into your home. You can easily place the power strip into a side table. Perhaps you can cut out a few holes in the back of the side table so that the wires can be pulled through and plugged in. This way all they have to do at night is plug the devices into the power strip inside of the drawer. It keeps the room looking neat and organized.
If you have a small room it’s important to give your house guest as much space as possible. A simple table can be converted into a luggage holder. This will allow them a place to put the luggage and a space to keep their towels, and washcloths. This can be a basic table, but it has to be strong enough to hold a heavy suitcase.
Another way to add more space to the room is to hang a shelf on the back of the door. This way they will have plenty of space to add the small items to the door. This item is inexpensive and can be purchased from your local Walmart. The key is to make a small room have the space that your guest will need. This is especially important if you have a small closet. This helps them to feel welcome and comfortable. You can also add shelves to the wall by using old pieces of wood, and a few inexpensive brackets from Home Depot.
