As the holiday season approaches, you may be opening their doors and welcoming family and friends to their homes. Before they arrive, take some time to get your guest room into shape.
By turning your spare bedroom into a five-star getaway, your guests can experience all the comforts of home. Here are some tips for creating the ultimate guest room.
Make the room inviting. Start with the biggest bed that will fit the room. A queen size is the ideal fit for most guest scenarios (a couple, tall guest, adult plus child, etc.) Then add fine-quality sheets, a blanket, pillows and a beautiful duvet. Keep extra pillows and blankets nearby.
Focus on functionality. Guests come with stuff, so provide them plenty of space to put it. Set out a luggage rack or bench to hold a suitcase or duffel. On the nightstand include a reading lamp and clock. Also allow for easy plug-in access to charge a phone. Make sure there are plenty of hangers in the closet and extra drawer space available. Hang a small mirror and if space allows, a long dressing mirror.
At your service. Create a soothing, comfortable room by laying out towels and toiletries so your guests won’t have to search for items. To give it that little extra something have water and other snacks on hand. A reading chair with a cozy throw is also a nice addition.
