Start With the Bed

The most important piece of the bedroom is, of course, the bed. Layer linens in a variety of textures and colors, provide plump pillows to prop up on and add a fluffy comforter. It'll be so nice, you may wind up camping out there, yourself.

Sleeper Sofas With Style

Hideaway beds have come a long way from the early versions, which were nothing more than metal ribs covered with a thin foam mattress. Now you can find ones that look great — and are comfortable to sleep on, too. Choose one for a room that has to multitask, like an apartment living room or a media room.

Outdoor Access

If you're remodeling an extra bedroom and have the budget to add outdoor access, it'll not only give guests extra breathing room, it could also make your home more sellable.

Twin Beds

Installing two beds gives a room vintage style while increasing the options for sleeping arrangements. With this layout, you can host couples, singles or kids. Bonus if one or both beds come with a trundle.

Mix Patterns and Colors

Add accents that transmit a sense of energy, like the framed art and the graphic fabric, then pair them with soothing colors and textures. Here the purple walls and pillow calm the sense of movement in the other elements.

Welcome Home

A tray with a teapot, cup and vase is simple and quick to assemble, but the impression it leaves will be long-lasting.

A Place for Clothes

Using dressers as side tables gives your visitors extra storage.

Hooks for Hanging

Hooks or pegs, whether on the wall or behind a door, make perfect places to stow coats, keys, hats and even umbrellas.

A Table for Two

A small bistro table can change the feel of the room. This thoughtful amenity gives travelers a spot to have breakfast or read in private.

Gallery Wall

Frame family photos with white mat and black frames, then hang them in a grid, for an inexpensive and easy gallery wall.

Extra Seating

A comfy chair gives travelers a spot to sit and rest weary feet after a long day of sightseeing or playing with grandkids.

Welcome Mat

Place a rug horizontally under the bed so that it greets guests when their feet hit the floor.

There's Always Room for Guests

If your home is small, outfit a cozy nook with a day bed that doubles as a sofa.

Rustic Touches

Bring in the outdoors with furniture that mimics nature, like this headboard and side table. This gives the room a sense of peace that invites relaxation.

Nap Zone

Floor-length curtains let your guests close out afternoon light for the perfect nap.

Murphy Bed

Would you believe that this cute bed pulls down from the wall? When it's folded up, it's concealed by wallpaper-covered doors. It's a great solution for small spaces.

Book Nooks

While these bookshelves are built in, you could add freestanding shelves for the same look. Small ones make great nightstands and can help house library spillover from other areas in the house.

Offset Decor

In a little space, it's perfectly legit to move the bed off-center, leaving room for a single bedside table. Add one oversized piece like this clock to make the room memorable.
