The Unfinished Guest Room (Finally!) Gets Its Due

How to create a warm, welcome guest space

By Kathy Barnes


The guest room presents its own design challenges, and often we don't think about creating that getaway space until guests have arrived and we're apologizing for bare bones accommodations. You can make an underused guest room feel welcoming by incorporating design details to give your guests a comfortable, enjoyable stay.

Problem: The walls need a wake-up call.

Solution: Choose graphic wallpaper for instant interest.

Wallcoverings provide a dynamic backdrop for basic bedroom furnishings and give your room a finished look. Wallpaper is available in limitless colors and patterns. Consider the scale of the paper and, if possible, purchase a sample roll to tape to your walls and observe before committing to the installation.
