Tips for Creating a Cozy Guest Room
Many families are reuniting this spring after a long period of not seeing one another due to the Covid-19 pandemic. With out-of-town guests possibly visiting soon for the first time in a while, now is a great time to spruce up your guest room for visitors!
Provide Guests with a Comfortable Mattress
The guest room can sometimes end up being the room where we put things that are no longer needed or that are not quite up to par for the main bedrooms of the house. Instead of furnishing the guest room with an old, saggy mattress, consider buying a new mattress for your guest room so guests will sleep comfortably while they visit.
Clear out the Closet
While it is tempting to leave all your off-season clothes stored in the guest room closet, it is not very welcoming for guests to find they have nowhere to hang their clothes during their stay. Clear out space in the closet so guests can utilize it while they are enjoying a visit to your home.
Provide Basic Necessities
Most guests will remember to bring things they need for travel, but it is always nice to have backup toothbrushes and toiletries in case they have forgotten something. Also be sure to equip your guest room with the basics like a bedside lamp for reading, nightlight for the hallway if your guest room does not have an attached bathroom, and extra pillows and linens.
Make Guests Feel Like They are Staying in a Hotel
For a visit your guests will not forgot, consider stocking your guest room with a small one-cup coffee maker so they do not have to leave the room for an early-morning caffeine-fix. You could also provide a small basket of snacks, a plush robe, and slippers for guests to enjoy.
