Whether you’re expecting overnight guests this weekend or months from now, be the host with the most with our easy tips for creating a welcoming guest bedroom.
Upgrade Your Bedding
Treat your guests to a great night’s sleep. Start with high-thread-count sheets, a soft mattress topper, choice of pillows, a cozy down comforter or quilt, and extra blankets.
Add A Place for Bags
Clear a space to put a luggage rack, small table, or bench to set down a suitcase. Anything that keeps your guest from having to open their bags on the floor is welcomed.
Create A Space to Hang Out
By adding a cozy chair, you’ll create a relaxing spot where your guests can sit and read a book or simply put on their shoes.
Don’t Forget the Basics
A lighted clock or clock radio next to the bed is a great amenity. Provide paper and pens, tissues, a few travel-size essentials, and a hairdryer to cover all the bases.
Clean the Closet
Clear some space in the close, and be sure to include a few hangers. A simple hook on the wall or over-the-door hook behind a closet door can hold a robe, coat, or purse.
Dress the Windows
Window coverings add character, privacy, and light control. Add inexpensive blinds, roller shades, or ready-made draperies to any windows that aren’t covered.
Add Snacks to Enjoy
Place wrapped snacks and bottled water in a basket or bowl. Your guests will be able to put together a tasty snack without having to sneak down to the kitchen late at night.
Help Guests Stay Connected
Save guests from asking for the wi-fi password by leaving a card with this info on a nightstand . Even on vacation, many people will do some work or check e-mail.
