One of the fun ideas for what you could do with your basement is turning it into a guest room. This is especially true if you have moved to a new town recently.

Most of your friends and family will probably have stayed in your old city and they’ll want to visit you. Being able to host them in your own home will provide you with so much joy if you follow these tips on how to transform your basement into a guest room.

1: Clear it all out

Notes:

  • The first step is quite obvious. In order to start converting your basement into a guest room, you need to clear it out. Go through all of your belongings that you have stored there and separate them into three groups.
  • One should be the things you want to keep, the second one the things that you can gift or donate and the third one that you can throw away. Be ruthless and honest with yourself when doing this.
  • If you have recently moved, you may still have some unpacked boxes lying around. This little project will be the kick you need to finally get fully unpacked.
  • In case that there are lots of things you want to keep, you could learn how to find movers in your area that can also provide you with storage services.
  • Once you’ve done this, you want to clean the whole area very thoroughly. Pay special attention when cleaning the floor as this will help when you are putting in the floor you decide on later. Whether it is carpeting, tiles or wood, you need the floor to be fully clean.

3: Furniture

Notes:

  • The most important way how to transform your basement into a guest room is to furnish it. When it comes to the basics, think bed or a pullout sofa, a wardrobe and a nightstand.
  • Depending on how much space you have, you can actually put in multiple dressers, wardrobes or shelves and use most of them as your own storage. You want to deck out the nightstand in all of the basics that your guests might need when they are away from home:

  • A lamp is an obvious choice, of course. However, certain gadgets like a clock with a USB charger can be of great use to your house guest. It will be particularly helpful if there aren’t that many power outlets in convenient locations.

4. Small touches make all the difference

Notes:

  • Even if you use the wardrobes for your own storage, make sure you leave some empty space, hangers, and drawers for your guest.
  • Making sure you provide the person staying with you with anything they might need within the room is how you turn your basement into the ultimate guest suite:

  • Some toiletries, a water bottle, and snacks, as well as quality bedding, will make your guests feel very comfortable while staying with you. There is a way to do this without breaking the bank.
  • On the other hand, these small details will go a long way. If you are thinking about where to splurge when decking out your guest room, bed linens might be the right choice.

5. Decorating

Notes:

  • The final touch when converting your basement into a guest room is the décor. As this room will be used by different people, you want the décor to be neutral.
  • However, you still want to make it feel like your home. Finding a nice balance will make it easier for you to decorate it and for your guests to feel like they are still in your home and not in a faceless hotel.
  • QUESTION?It may seem counterintuitive to make the bedding white. Surprisingly, white is actually the easiest to clean in case of stains by using bleach. Furthermore, the white bedding will act as a blank canvas.
  • The accents can then be more in line with the rest of your home. You can borrow some throw pillows from your living room for a pop of color, or get a colorful blanket to throw over the bed. Putting some wall art will make the room feel homier. Finally, you can even add some plants. Just make sure they are the kind that can still thrive without a lot of natural light.
