If you’re hosting guests in the near future, make them feel more comfortable by spicing up your guest room a bit. In order to do this, there are a few things you need to include in the bedroom and bathroom. Here is what you’ll need.
Guest Towels, Linens and Blankets
A room can never have too many linen guest towels or blankets. Some people tend to get cold throughout the night, so it’s important to always keep their room stocked with extra blankets so they can bundle up without asking you for any spares. You can place them right on the bed and spice up the look of where they’re going to sleep by including boudoir pillow cases, an embroidered tissue box cover, and embroidered pillows. Seven to nine hours of sleep per night are generally recommended, so you want them to get the best night’s sleep possible. The linen guest towels are also important because your guest will be able to get ready for bed or for the day whenever they want, without having to wait for you to hand them towels.
Keep an Empty Closet
If you’ve ever been to a hotel, you know that all of the drawers and closets in the room are empty. This is so anyone can hang their clothes up without feeling like they have to live out of their suitcase. The same concept should apply to your guest room. Leaving an empty closet with a few hangers will allow your guest to hang up their clothes for easier access. Plus, it’ll prevent their clothes from getting wrinkled, which can be a big help if you don’t have an iron on hand for them to use.
If your entire house is ready to go to bed but your guest is not, leaving things in their room to keep them entertained is a really great idea. Put a few books and magazines on the nightside table or bring in a TV (and make sure you explain how to use your remote and navigate the different channels, as well). Your guest will love the fact that you took the time to pay attention to what they might need, even if they don’t end up using any of it.
Hosting guests can be very stressful. However, if you have a well-prepared guest room, their stay will be more than enjoyable.
