Living in Florida means that you get to call paradise home.

Moving here from the great white north means becoming the envy of all of your friends and former neighbors.

If there is anything that you can count on when you become a Floridian, its that you will have frequent house guests. Of course, you want your guests to feel comfortable and welcome when they come to visit.

Here are our top design tips to transform your spare room into a true retreat that your guests will never want to leave. [For more tips like these, follow us on Facebook]

Tile Floors

Tile floors, whether they be wood, stone, or ceramic are ideal for a guest room in Florida because they are stain resistant and the easiest to clean. Once you live in Florida, you can bet on your guest room being more full than ever as friends and family will use any excuse to come down and visit while catching a few rays. The last thing you want to worry about is having to regularly steam clean the carpets or have your guests feel guilty if they spill something.

New Paint

If you are living in an older home or one that hasn’t been updated in a while, it is a good idea to slap a fresh coat of paint on the walls of your guest room. Try choosing a modern yet soothing color with grey, blue, or green tones which will give your guests a more serene feeling while staying with you.

Fresh Flowers

Simple, fresh, and fragrant; fresh flowers are one of the most lovely ways to make your guests feel special while visiting. However, don’t let this task become an arduous chore. Just grab a bouquet from the grocery store and toss them in a vase. It doesn’t have to be anything fancy. Something as simple as a few tulips or anything else in season will do just fine.

Good Beach Reads

Most of the time your guests will be visiting from up north and will have been looking forward to a peaceful, relaxing vacation on the beach. No day at the beach is complete without a juicy book to keep your mind occupied against the backdrop of the crashing waves. Stock your guest room with a variety of glutinous or literary reads they can use to unwind and relax while staying with you.
