    Make Your Guests Feel At Home with these Decorating Tips

    Last updated 2 days 1 hour ago

    From annual family holiday guests to the occasional unexpected drop-in, nearly everyone will find themselves in the situation of needing to offer overnight accommodations at least once in their lives. If you are fortunate enough to have a room that can serve as a guest room in a pinch, or even a dedicated guest room, why not make it as comfortable and inviting as possible? Here’s how.

    Keep it Bright, Fresh, and Airy
    Overnight guests will have a hard time feeling at home if it feels like they’re sleeping in your catch-all room or storage closet. A coat or two of bright, happy paint can transform any room, as can simply keeping it neat and organized. Try not to cram too much stuff into one space—let the room breathe and your guests will breathe easier, too.

    Make it Both Functional and Welcoming
    Guests understand that you need to use their sleeping space every other day of the year, but it shouldn’t feel that way. You can make your home office serve as a guest room simply by installing a desk wallbed. Keep a nice, colorful bedding set to use when the bed is down, and don’t worry about it otherwise. A few wall-hangings or interesting antique finds go well in both a bedroom and a home office, so they’re great ways to create a cohesive atmosphere that doesn’t make holiday guests feel like they’re putting you out.

    Add a Bit of Texture
    Few things are more uninviting than a cold, bland, sterile room. Set out a vase of fresh or artificial flowers. Keep a swag or wreath on the wall. Use jute, burlap, or twine to create an interesting wall hanging or even a headboard. Use your imagination to put some depth into the room and it will feel much warmer and comfortable for your guests.

    Designing the Ultimate Woman Cave

    Last updated 9 days ago

    Most women have the intellectual understanding that in order to care for others, they must first care for themselves. Unfortunately, very few women have the appropriate atmosphere available to them in order to make that happen. Enter the woman cave. A woman cave can feel like a mini vacation home when done right, so follow these tips for designing yours:

    Mind the Atmosphere
    While a woman cave should be functional, it doesn’t need to feel like an office or work environment. Scented candles, strategic dimmed and accent lighting, and just the right shade of your favorite color can all go a long way toward creating the soothing, inspiring environment that every woman cave should be.

    Make it Personal
    Unlike kids’ rooms, spaces for holiday guests, or even your living room, a woman cave doesn’t need to reflect anyone or anything other than the woman to whom it belongs. This is your space, so make it so. Think about the things you like, as well as what you’re likely to do in your cave.

    Will you use it for your morning devotional or study time? Install a comfy, cozy chair and blanket for reading. Will you be crafting all of those great Pinterest projects? Stock it with a treasure trove of DIY tools and supplies. Whatever you choose, though, make sure it is a reflection of you.

    Manipulate the Space
    It seems like there can never be enough storage space, especially in a woman cave. Install items that give you all the storage you think you need, then add a bit more. A small wallbed can serve as a wonderful place to catch a nap, and then fold up to be a bookcase or desk. Decorative baskets, shelves, or even colorful storage tubs and tension rods offer flexible storage to serve any need.

    At Wallbeds “n” More in California, we are experts at helping you create functional, comfortable rooms when there is little space to work with. Let us show you how we can help you create the ultimate woman cave when you visit us or call (888) 856-1192.

    Tips for Decorating a Small Bedroom

    Last updated 16 days ago

    Any number of situations could cause you to find yourself in the position of having to design and decorate a small bedroom; kids’ rooms that offer ample space for play, vacation homes, apartment living, or even remodeling older homes with smaller space in general are just a few examples. Whatever your particular situation, take heart in knowing that it isn’t impossible to design an amazing bedroom space, no matter how limited the square footage. Here are a few tips for how:

    1.  Choose Your Furniture Wisely
    Yes, it might be possible to cram a king-sized poster bed into a room only slightly larger than a walk-in closet, but that doesn’t make it especially practical. Choose furniture that is appropriately sized to the room, and try to find items that can do double duty. For example, a wallbed can be designed to serve as a desk when not in use, and a storage ottoman can contain objects while posing as a bench.

    2.  Go Bold and Bright
    When you choose lighter colors as your palette, it can make the room feel more open and light. Bold, bright colors can achieve similar results while inspiring the imagination. Go ahead and go for one big focal point, but do keep it at one and design smaller, complementing items of décor around it.

    3.  Make Every Inch Count
    Don’t underestimate the value of vertical space. Instead of a wallpaper border, install shelving around the perimeter of the room for both visual appeal and functionality. Hang a canopy net in a corner to contain soft or lightweight items. Embrace the idea that bookshelves don’t always have to house only books, and build one plumb up to the ceiling. With a little creativity, you can make a very small space go a very long way.

    At Wallbeds “n” More, we pride ourselves on helping families, individuals, and homeowners create their ideal space regardless of available square footage.
