Give family and friends a five-star stay this festive season with our tips for creating cosy guest bedrooms and welcoming lounges

Create a festive retreat for guests

Start by getting the basics right: kit out your guest bedroom with quality bedding to give guests a great night’s sleep. Think plump pillows, a supportive mattress and a snuggly duvet. Get even the biggest grinch into the Christmas spirit with our festive bedding – red is a Yuletide classic. Add some playful decorations, like our striking red berry lights, oversized baubles, and personalised stockings, to make their stay extra special. Keep your guests cosy when the temperature dips by dressing the bed with plenty of throws, and add scatter cushions for comfy reclining.

Been meaning to upgrade the furniture in your guest bedroom or spruce up your lounge with a new sofa ready for the arrival of family and friends? Don’t miss our furniture range with delivery in time for Christmas. Order now for peace of mind.

Add some ambience

Fragrancing your home with seasonal scents is a great way to create an inviting atmosphere – there’s nothing cosier than the flickering light of a Christmas candle. Help your guests unwind with candles and diffusers in relaxing scents. A light-up candle will give the room an appealing glow. Add some extra magic to your mantelpiece with seasonally shaped candles – this Christmas tree candle sparkles with a dusting of glitter and is almost too pretty to burn. Pair it with a house-shaped candle for a cute festive scene. Electric diffusers are also great for adding some fragrance to your living space when you have guests – we love the sleek design of this ultrasonic diffuser, which will fit seamlessly with any scheme.

Make a festive first impression

Welcome guests to your home with a festive wreath – either a stylish light-up option or a more traditional garland. Make your house feel extra inviting by lighting pathways and flowerbeds with our starburst outdoor lights. They’re solar powered, so you won’t have to remember to turn them on and off. There’s nothing more magical than Christmas lights on a wintry evening, and outside lights are a great way to add some festive sparkle to your garden and delight guests. Our tree-shaped cascade lights will look showstopping when darkness falls, or try this light-up star, which can be used indoors and outdoors.
