Summer-house Checklist … Guest Room/Nursery

From the inside out, getting your summer-house ready for the season takes time and planning. Traditionally, Memorial Day is when homeowners open their house for the summer season. But, if you haven’t been tackling the job yet no worries! Just start with one room at a time finish it then move on.
So here’s a guest room plan to get you started.
Because the last thing you want to do is spend time while on vacation hunting for a pillow or fixing the window screen!

In any home the top priority is maintenance then we move on to furnishings, decor & amenities. So with that in mind lets get a plan together for your summer-house guest room this week.

Guest Room Plan
Most clients I know that are getting their summer-house ready are anticipating company, and lots of it! From family to friends a summer-house is a relaxing way to enjoy time together.

With that in mind, is there a new baby in the family or will you need a crib on hand?

So your guest room may need an update to accommodate the new baby! The nursery below has a transitional design that would be welcoming for adults, teens & babies alike! The Teal paint color from Sherwin-Williams Riverway also lends itself to a fun summer-house vibe providing you with years of use.

After you’ve decided on the design plan for your summer-house guest room whether it includes a crib or not …

Next up is the bedding, does this need a refresh?
It’s always a good idea to provide your guests with bedding options, so layering the bedding works great!

And don’t forget about the pillows.
A good nights sleep is so important wherever you are. So ask your guests (family) what kind of pillows they like.

Lastly, accessories … are they in need of an update? Such as the draperies, area rug or lighting.
Window treatments are so important in a guest room, especially in a nursery! And new parents want to sleep in too!
