The holidays are just around the corner and our spare room needed some finishing touches to make the space feel warm and cozy for our guests. We took advantage of the amazing decor (and awesome holiday savings) at The Home Depot to make the space more comfortable and homey.

The Home Depot has been a go to for Troy and I during our home renovation. They are the absolute BEST when it comes to home improvement. But, did you know they also offer a wide variety of beautiful home decor items? Just wait until you see what I bought! It really elevates the space and I know you can find some amazing items that will make your guests feel more warm and welcome as well.

Checklist For Your Spare Bedroom

Turkish Towel Set


Does your spare bathroom have enough towels? Are they comfortable? We had some towels in there but man I went to feel them last week and they were so scratchy and thin. Thankfully, I was able to grab this Turkish Towel Set for 25% off. They feel so luxe and I know our guests will love them!



How is your bed set up? This is one of the most important aspects of your spare bedroom! My parents prefer sleeping on a memory foam bed, so we bought one for them. We want them to be as comfortable as possible and to stay as long as they can! You can now grab this amazing Sealy Memory Foam Mattress for 40% off at The Home Depot! Such a great price!

Do you have a comfortable quilt for them to sleep under? I love how a down comforter looks, but that can sometimes get too hot for your guests. Having a quilt and other blankets handy helps them regulate the temperature while they sleep. I grabbed this GORGEOUS Lush Velvet Cotton Quilt Set for 40% off and I think it fits perfectly with our ski resort theme.

I also think adding a headboard can add a whole lot of comfort for your guests. They can have something to rest their backs on while they read or rest before bed. Our Tara Tufted Upholstered Bed is only $239 right now in the King size and less than $200 for the queen! It was pretty easy for Troy to put together too.

I am going to add lamps with bedding, because they will definitely want a lamp to turn on once they relax in bed. How quaint are these Crystal Lamps from Jonathan Y?



Home decor can make your space go from cold and unwelcoming to warm and inviting. The Home Depot has a wide variety of home decor items, so definitely take advantage of their holiday savings right now and grab the items you need to make your space feel like home.

I honestly cannot believe these CosmoLiving by Cosmopolitan Gold Pillar Lanterns are only $34 for the entire set. I love them so much that I actually put them in the living room by our fireplace and intend to move them into the spare room when (and only when) we have guests staying with us. They are STUNNING!



Take stock of what you need around the house for your guests as well. I noticed that our kitchen dinnerware was looking pretty shabby, chipped, and sparse, so I upgraded with this gorgeous Metallic Edge Dinnerware Set. It looks sooo good with the table and I love the metallic edges- perfect for the holiday season!

Now, after going over this checklist, do you have everything you need? Head to The Home Depot now to prep your home for guests this holiday season!
