When the last child of a family moves out, it can leave parents with an extra room that is in need of an upgrade. Many couples choose to turn it into a guest room, and,according to the GateHouse News Service, there are several ways that homeowners can make a seamless and effective transition.

The most important aspect of the room is the bed, but there are other crucial accessories to consider as well. The news source reports that having enough comfortable pillows can be of equal importance, and one should think about purchasing the best linens possible for guests who are spending the night. Additionally, experts recommend including a desk and nightstand so that visitors have a place for their things.

There is certainly the need for accessories, too, but it is not necessary to go beyond an alarm clock, mirror and possibly a television. According to the news outlet, colors should be kept neutral and understated. Designers also suggest hanging blackout shades to ensure that guests get a restful night's sleep.

Along with effectively blocking out light, industry analysts report that blackout shades can provide an elegant atmosphere to a room, and come in handy if the guest is a light or afternoon sleeper and requires a dark sleeping environment.
