Creating the Perfect Guest Bedroom for Holiday Visitors: 3 Steps for Interior Painting Before In-Laws Arrive

Having guests like your in-laws in your home for the holiday can be a joyous occasion or end in disaster. Where your guests stay while visiting affects the overall experience, so carefully design your guest room to create a warm and inviting space.

Listed below are the 3 steps you should take to create the perfect guest bedroom before your in-laws arrive for the holidays:

1. Choose a Color Scheme

Nothing delays a project more than deciding on a color scheme for the room. There are thousands of colors available, so it’s understandable why this step may be challenging. Find inspiration in photos, magazines, and daily life. It may be a good idea to keep a guest room more traditional with neutral colors and a pop of color as an accent.

2. Prepare the Walls

You’ll want to remove any paintings or other wall decorations before the day of the paint job. Wrap them in plastic or store them in trash bags, so they aren’t collecting dust and debris. Keep them in the closet or garage so they are out of the way and don’t trip anyone.

As the years go by, your walls accumulate dust and oils, especially if you have small children or pets. You must remove this oily layer, or it will interfere with the paint’s ability to stick to the surface. Certain cleaners may strip the color from your walls, so ensure you don’t use them until you’re ready to complete the project.

3. Hire a Professional Painting Crew

Hiring a professional painter can save you time if you’re in a pinch because the holidays are arriving. Before they begin painting, they’ll protect your floors and carpets from dripping paint with plastic barriers. You can trust that they’ll use a suitable primer and leave you with beautiful, streak-free interior walls.When you’re ready to update your guest bedroom in preparation for your in-laws, allow 360° Painting to repaint your interior walls.
