Let's admit, we all have a pressure stuck in our brains which would make you do anything & everything to make them feel comfortable in your house. When perhaps, it is not that difficult. When it comes to keeping your guests happy, comfort is the key. All you actually need to do is, create a welcoming space for them in their bedroom such that they get almost all the amenities they could have got in a hotel, & a charm of a home. When it comes to designing your Guest room, think like a traveller, who would need a cozy bed to take some rest, a chair where they could sit & read & those toiletries or phone chargers that are usually forgotten while travelling. You could use the below listed tips to plan your guest bedroom such that the guests, while leaving, leave with a smile & tons of beautiful memories:

Cozy Environment- During makeover of a guest bedroom, one must necessarily make sure to have a cozy environment so that the guests feel like they’re at their own home. Use the fluffy mattress, your favourite pillow, scented candles and maybe those decor fancies that will surely make them feel home. Create their room such that they have an amazing stay & make plans of visiting you again.

Attached Washroom- As mentioned earlier, while designing a guest bedroom, imagine yourself in a traveller’s shoes & you’re halfway there. The main purpose of a guest bedroom makeover itself is their comfort. One of the most essential factors to be kept in mind while designing a guest bedroom is to have an attached washroom. This is because some may or may not be comfortable crossing the busiest part of the house for using a washroom. 

Use Light Colors- Painting the room light automatically leads to a bright mood & a fresh start of the day for anyone staying in there. Use bright colors to paint the bedroom. This will keep your guest’s mood bright & will kick start a fresh day for them.

Privacy- While designing a space for your guest bedroom, make sure to maintain a good amount of distance from the master bedroom. Your guests have come in for a stay, neither them nor you would want to invade each other’s privacy. Maintain the room’s privacy & authenticity by planning this required distance.

Avoid clutter- The room aesthetics of the guest bedroom should be equally well maintained as that of the other rooms. Avoid cluttering a whole lot of furniture items, unnecessary decor & other stuff which would not be of any use in the bedroom. Try to declutter the room as much as possible. This gives the room a huge amount of space & avoids negative vibes. 

It is a moral responsibility to take care of each guest coming in the house. Why not make it a memorable one by considering the above tips? Afterall, how you treat your guests presents your individuality. We hope these tips help you create a pleasing guest bedroom & your guests feel invited whole heartedly.

After a long tiring day at work, each one of us deserves a cozy place where we can enjoy a drink with our closed ones. Ever thought of creating a small yet functional home bar inside your house? Not necessarily a huge one but a cozy corner that could inspire you to invite your friends, family & other acquaintances for a party! All you’ve got to do is choose a corner within your house & take a look at these beautiful ideas to transform the corner into a bar-

Pick your corner- As mentioned earlier, the first step to create your mini bar is to pick the perfect corner where you can place your bar furniture or create a bar heighted platform to place your drinks. One of the most preferred options is creating a 45 degree angle at two corners which can be well utilised for seating as well as standing purpose depending upon the space.

Furniture- Most of the homes use wooden bar cabinets to create an elegant bar space & to store bottles in. One could also create a marble platform at a bar height & use wall shelves to stack your bottles. The typical bar top stands 41 to 43 inches from the floor. Accordingly, choose the right bar stools which are 29 to 32 inches from floor to seat. Be careful while picking a bar stool as the ones with no back support are usually not quite comfortable & are meant for commercial bars where people do not spend a lot of time. Pick bar stools that are comfortable to the back. In case you’re falling short of space to place bar stools, make sure that the bar top is easy to lean against. Choose the furniture that suits your comfort the most & you’re almost there.

Hanging Lights- An ideal home bar needs to have at least 3 hanging lights from the ceiling. They should be placed high enough that no one gets their head hit onto it. The wattage of the bulb needs to be soft enough for everyone to have a soothing effect while they have their drinks.

Utilise the walls- As much as people like bar cabinets or bar tops to lean on, utilizing the walls such that they have an attractive design, color or shelves to stack drinks, is appealing to the eyes for sure. You can also create a niche in the wall so as to create a space to stack bottles & utilize it like a display for your collection.

Decor- No matter how big or small the bar space is, make sure to give it a trendy look. Install a chalkboard where guests can leave their mark, use photo frames or wall pieces to display your creativity. Use various quotes about your favourite drinks. Make it an appealing corner.

The best part about making a bar at home is that you can experiment your own creativity.  It can be full of bright lights, colorful décor, dark furniture and a lot of zing appeal. A bar at home is not just a hangout place for you to chill with your friends but even the most important business dealings with clients can be dealt with over a glass of wine. Create your home bar today & let us know in the comments if the ideas were helpful.

Ever moved into a new house & felt the urge to give it a vintage look? Or maybe walked into an old fashioned retro style house & felt like transforming your house to a similar style?

It is undeniable, a touch of vintage look in the house makes each one of us feel more inviting, warm and comfortable. The best part about giving your house this look is that just by adding a few inexpensive materials and a lot of creativity, you can add a retro character to every room without having to spend a stack of cash. Here are some easy ways to add some vintage charm to any and every room in your house:

Distressed Paint- To give your wooden furniture a nice rustic look, all you need to do is, simply add and then subtract color. Begin with painting the furniture pieces with an authentic color. Once this process is completed, let the paint dry completely. Once dried, use sandpaper to rub some of the paint away or  use a putty knife to scrape the finish in a random pattern. This simple process of adding & eliminating colors from your furniture gives it a nice vintage look & you’re good to go.

Textures- Ever walked into a retro themed house & checked out the checkerboard floorings? They’ve always been so noticeable to the eyes! Adding a checked pattern flooring, bulky couches or natural materials like wool & cotton automatically leaves a vintage mark to the eyes. 

Decor- Placing antique glass & bronze colored doorknobs is the best way to add a vintage look to your home. It reminds each one of us of the antique homes we’ve almost always explored in the movies. One could also paint their lantern to a black or charcoal finish to get an antique result out of it. Changing your cutlery to antique dishes & hanging them on the wall will also add a charm to your new vintage home.

Bathroom Accents- Choosing vintage bathroom accessories turns it into a soothing and relaxing space with stylish appeal. Rustic look sinks that have no storage underneath are definitely the best choice. 

While giving your house this new look, keep in mind to not add a lot of shapes & colors as it will end up looking messy & will not give you the desired result. You might also want to change the sofa upholstery to give it a patterned look so as to give you a cozier look & comfort.
