At this time of year, multiple guests in your house are very likely, whether it’s just granny and granddad or a whole host of aunts, uncles, cousins and family-in-law! While accommodating your guests’ every need isn’t feasible (especially when you’re trying to cook Christmas dinner too), making sure their bedroom is comfortable and relaxing is achievable – especially with the range of furniture and homewares we’ve got at Littlewoods.
Depending on how much space you’ve got, it might be wise to invest in a sofa bed for any last minute guests – the Juno Sofa Bed combines a beautiful faux leather finish and buttoned upholstery with a practical, modern fold-out style. For a more dramatic look, the Lux Faux Leather Sofa Bed in either black or chocolate is perfect for a spare room or TV room.
If you already have a few spare beds (or just the one) give them an update with some comfortable and luxurious bedding. The Morphy Richards All Night Heated Underblanket provides a toasty addition to any guest bedroom with a secure safety mechanism to ensure there’s no overheating either, and is ideal for winter nights. Combine it with the latest in sleeping technology, deluxe memory foam pillows – like the Refresh Breathable Memory Foam Traditional Pillow – for a comfortable, supportive night’s sleep for your guests.
The memory foam pillows mould to the shape of your guest’s head and neck, giving total support and allowing for a comfortable night’s sleep. A Littlewoods’ favourite, for both guest rooms and your own bed, is Egyptian cotton bedding, like the Egyptian Cotton Extra Deep Fitted Sheet and Egyptian Cotton Pillowcases (pair) in a range of gorgeous colours. This luxurious bedding provides a great night’s sleep thanks to the high thread count and smooth finish. For a more colourful guest bedroom, try the Panel Print Duvet Cover Set in either cranberry, olive or turquoise – we particularly like cranberry for the festive season!
When you’ve got the bed and the bedding sorted, it’s always nice to have a few extra touches in the guest bedroom to make your guests’ lives easier and help you keep the place looking tidy! Warm up the bed with some luxurious throws, like the faux silk Crinkle Quilted Throw in a range of jewel-like colours, or the cuddly Knitted Throw with tasselled edging. Keep all your bedding neatly in one place while still keeping the room stylish with our Chelmsford Ottoman in black or white – ideal for blankets and even jumpers. Lighting is important too: keep lighting cosy with lower wattage bulbs and several lamps in the room, like the Faux Suede 3-ball Floor Lamp in plum and matching Faux Suede 3-ball Table Lamp. Giving your guests a cosy bedroom space will hopefully keep them in a good mood – meaning there’s less stress for you!
