Spruce up Your Spare Room in 5 Easy Steps


In spite of our best intentions, our spare rooms can often fall into disarray and go to waste. The team here at Denton Blinds have put together five easy steps to spruce up your spare room so that if you’re about to have guests, are thinking about letting the room out, or simply want to make the most of the space, you can completely rejuvenate the room.


Spare rooms often end up doubling as storage facilities, with odd bits from around the house being moved here so they’re out of sight in the most used rooms. While this is fine when the room is spare, if you’re going to be having guests, it doesn’t exactly portray a welcoming environment! By moving all of your odd bits into the attic you’ll open up the space and make it feel more welcoming.

Add new bedding & soft furnishings

Fresh bedding is always a must when setting up your spare room. Clean, crease-free and fresh smelling bedding will make it clear that effort has been put into the room, and guests will appreciate the foresight! To really up the ante and make your room feel more luxurious, invest in a few cushions and a soft throw to create a cosy room to relax in.

Update your blinds

High quality blinds are a must in your spare room. Not only do they tie the room decor together and add an aesthetic quality, they also insulate the room and block the sun to provide shading, allowing your guests more control over their surroundings and thereby increasing their own comfort. To ensure your guests have a restful sleep, opt for blackout blinds. These allow the room to be plunged into complete darkness at any time of the day, so your guest can have the ideal environment for a good night’s sleep.

Use scented candles

Use a nice scented candle to invoke your visitor’s sense of smell. Choosing a scent such as fresh linen, vanilla or lavender will create a calming environment that is perfect for the guest room!

Supply entertainment

Whether it’s in the form of magazines, books, board games, or a tv and DVDs, you should have some sort of entertainment in your guest room – in fact, the wider the selection, the better. The more your guest can relax and enjoy the amenities of the room, the more pampered and taken care of they’ll feel!
