Preparing a Spare Room in London For Guests

Many people have a spare room which just gets used for storage. If this room is big enough, you can use it for accommodation for somebody else, but first it needs to be prepared so that it is welcoming to potential flatmates or resident.

Many people in London are looking for spare rooms or flatmates. With this shortage, you can both earn money and provide someone with some needed accommodation.

You may be in the situation where your spare room has been used as a storage area for years and you don’t know where to start. Below are some simple ideas you can put in place to get to your room where you need it to be. You are now an interior designer until the plan is complete.

The first things you need to do is make a list of all the things in the spare room, where you will put them for future storage elsewhere and then you can start planning what needs doing for the spare room.

The idea here is not to spend months planning on spending money on the spare room, but to get it in a state where it would be nice to live in with the basic essentials.

We find that drawing a basic outline of your room and putting in the basic essentials like a bed, and storage areas is the easiest way to plan what you need. You can then make a list of these items, then find the best prices you can for each of them.

We have found that most homeowners will regularly visit DIY stores and shops that sell goods for the house in general. If you are planning on visiting one of these shops in the near future, then this is an ideal time to start pricing up the things you need for your spare room.

Remember, you don’t have to make your spare room palace for someone to be enticed enough to rent it out. Start with something like a single bed. There are many warehouses that specialise in beds and mattresses, although you may want to buy a brand-new mattress. You will then need new bedding and at least one spare. If you follow this process for each of the areas of the spare room, you will have a list of things you need in no time.

The more self-contained the room, the more items you will need. If you are planning on making the room like a studio flat, with sink, TV and other extras, then you’re planning process will be much longer, but it will mean the end results will be a better class of person you will attract.

This planning process is there to make sure that all aspects of the spare room are covered and to make the task less daunting. Don’t try and do everything at once, but do one task at a time. This would probably mean performing the decorating the room first. So start with this area and list all the things you will need to complete the task. Also, think about the room as if you were to stay in it. What would you want to see in there and what would entice you to rent this room above another one?

For anyone wanting to rent out the spare room, for a flatmate, roommate or any other purpose, make sure you thoroughly plan out what you need to complete the task, then do the task in small stages. In no time at all you will have a room that will be enticing enough for anybody.
