Easy Ways To Help Your Guests Feel At Home

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.
