We want to show you that creating a warm and welcoming guest bedroom in your current sitting room isn't that difficult with some key, signature pieces and a little bit of creativity creativity!
A stylish sitting room should have a great sofa, take the time when purchasing a new sofa and look for one that looks great but is also comfortable and supportive.
A sitting room is the perfect place to showcase precious objects or works of art. Adding a statement piece on your feature wall will draw your guests eyes as they enter the space as well as act as a great conversation piece.
A great rug can complete a room or bring a spaces look together! Take note of your space, noting the colours and motifs present, when purchasing a rug try to choose one that will reflect the motifs you have found as well as the colour palette. If you want something a little different, select a rug that directly contradicts your space or is off a slightly different colour.
No one wants to relax in a clutter or messy room, hide away clutter with fashionable and stylish storage solutions. Buffets, low cabinets and baskets are perfect for hiding away unsightly objects.
Don't over clutter your sitting room with furniture, you should be able to move around freely in the space without damaging or knocking objects.
