If you have an extra budget to play with, you shouldn’t be afraid to try something bold in your guest bedroom, like a bright color or a fun wallpaper. You can keep the rest of your space simple and neutral, letting the feature wall stand out by itself.
6. Bedside lighting
Always try to make sure you have some sort of bedside lighting available, allowing your guest to read a book and finish off some work before going to sleep.
