Don’t forget bedside lightingAs designers Wickenden Hutley demonstrate beautifully in this simple twin bedroom, it doesn’t have to be hard or expensive to add illumination to your guest room. When a space isn’t used very often, or isn’t used as a bedroom, it might not be set up for the best night’s sleep. Having nothing but an overhead light can feel as if you haven’t thought about visitors’ comfort. Attach affordable clip-on lamps to a headboard or, as here, a characterful old stepladder, painted to complement the colour scheme.

Try a different between-the-beds solutionBedside tables – whether a single shared one or two separate surfaces – have the advantage of combining tabletop space, a perch for lighting, and storage in one single piece of furniture. But if you have space for a chest of drawers elsewhere in the room, why not consider something a little different between the beds?A mini step-ladder has been pressed into service here and provides open shelving that keeps the space looking light and bright. Reading lamps have been clipped into position on either side for a neat solution that requires neither tabletop space nor chasing out plaster.

Don’t go overboard with stripesStripes are an essential element of this look, but to keep your room on the softer side of coastal, use them sparingly; you want to create a hint of seaside rather than deckchair overload.A soft ticking fabric made into a Roman blind is just enough to add a nautical air without dominating a room.

Space between twin bedsA gap of 50cm between the beds will allow for making each bed comfortably, as well as creating a useful space for a shared bedside table or locker.

Try out a twinTwin guest rooms are common in holiday cottages, where bedrooms are often shared by children or friends. It’s also a good tip for a flexible spare room at home – and can look beautiful. In this coastal-style room, the décor is kept airy with plenty of white and a subtle dash of nautical navy, plus headboards that look like salvaged shutters.Should a couple come to stay, you can push the beds together and the eminently practical ladder shelf/bedside light holder to one side of the new double bed. If you want to ensure both parties have lamplight, attach a slim shelf, painted to blend in with the wall, above the bedheads – this will also give you a flexible way to position the lighting. If you have simple divans, ie, without headboards, consider fixing panels – or a single panel – to the wall to do the job instead. Look out for old shutters, doors or other salvaged wood to stretch the width of both beds (chop it to size if you don’t find something in the perfect dimensions), making it even easier to slide the beds about in different positions.
