The guest room is usually one of the most neglected parts of a house. Since most people don’t have guests staying all that frequently, the guest room is rarely called upon to live up to its name, i.e., as a place for guests to sleep. Instead, all too often the guest room is a dumping ground for unwanted furniture, ironing, and every misplaced item you happen to own. So how can you ensure your guest bedroom is up to scratch for those times when you have to unexpectedly entertain a guest for the night?

Beds take up a lot of room, so unless you regularly entertain overnight guests, it makes little sense to have a huge bed taking up valuable floor space.

Home makeovers can be costly, but it is possible to make your home more appealing without splashing out a premium. How can you achieve this?
- Throw out the clutter
This is a totally free way to make the space in your home look more inviting and presentable. All you have to do is throw away the junk and donate anything in your home that is no longer useful to you right now; or in the foreseeable. Why keep that old typewriter you’ve not used in a decade? Do you really need to keep the hundreds of CDs stacked up in the corner? What of old, worn out toys? You will be surprised how much space you can free up by doing this. (more…)
