- Keep it simple and add fresh flowers when a guest is staying over
For a room that is not in use every single day of the year, the furniture and interior does not need to be extravagant. You cannot go wrong with a simplistic interior when it comes to a guest room, this can meet everyone's individual needs. There are little details you can add to a space when a guest is due to arrive, such as fresh flowers. Fresh flowers can make a room look a lot more premium and cleaner than it is, especially if your guest room interior is very simplistic. Have you got a guest due to stay? Why not add some fresh flowers to their space whilst they visit?
