The holidays are around the corner and if you’re planning to have guests stay at your house, you’ll need to be planning a guest room now, but you don’t need to hire a professional designer to have a stunning guest room. Follow these steps and you’ll not only have a beautiful guest room, you’ll have a multi-functional space that can be used throughout the whole year.

While there, be sure to checkout our own BredaBeds Pinterest page. There's no limit to the ideas on this website and it's used by everyone including professional designers.
Plan your room. There’s no better way to start a major project than to thoroughly plan what you’ll be doing. Autodesk Homestyler is a free and easy to use design software that lets you design your whole room, then see it in 3D. You can even get it on your mobile device, so get yourself some coffee or tea, sit down and start designing. Until recently, this type of software was only available to architects and other top professionals.

Turn any spare room into a guest room. Add a BredaBed Murphy Bed to any room and that room instantly becomes a spare bedroom. This is a great way to maximize space, now your guest room can be used as a craft room too, or use a BredaBed Hiddenbed and your room can instantly transform from a home-office to a guest room simply by pulling down a bed. The Penthouse Collection offers side hutches that can be used as a wardrobe where you can hang your clothes and drawers underneath which also reveals a “hidden” pull-out night shelf.
Decorate the space. Add a touch of personalization to your new guest room by heading over to DIY Network home decoration and decorating the space yourself.
