1. Be critical

You need to cast a critical eye over a guest room, because if you don't you can bet your bottom dollar your guests will!

2. Renew bedding

Carpets are the bug bear of many guest rooms – look down and see what state yours is in – if it's threadbare or stained cheap rugs are a quick and easy camouflage solution.

5. Use patterns

6. Lighting

Bedside table lamps are a must for guest rooms; not only will they provide light for reading they're also a good way of giving a new look to the room.

7. Create a focal point

As the bed is usually the focal point in bedrooms your new bedding should effectively draw the eye towards it as your guests enter the room.

8. Seasonal accessories

You could use seasonal coloured duvet sets or add bed throws for autumn/winter guests.

9. Include texture

Use various textures on the bed and within the room to stop it looking bland, neglected and boring! If you choose shiny and reflective surfaces make sure you keep them dust free.

10. Use nature's helping hand!

Seasonal flower display are always a welcome sight and show your guests that you still have your finger on the interior design pulse!
