When looking for guest bedroom ideas, it’s essential to think about the room’s floor plan and position the bed (or sofa bed) away from the door and with a fair amount of space around it. In a small room, try and place the bed along the longest wall and make sure there is access to both sides if you can.

You should also consider the lighting, colour scheme and pay attention to smaller details; creating a well thought out space will make guests feel welcome.
