Welcoming Guests: Top 5 things to add to your Guest Bedroom

1. Provide a Comfortable Bed

Don't just give your guests the second hand bed you know you should have gotten rid of years ago. Try to provide a comfortable sleep by investing in a high quality mattress or mattress topper that can bring a new lease of life to a preowned bed frame. Beyond clean bedding, think about adding luxurious bed linens, layers of textiles and soft furnishings, such as a choice of pillows, a cozy down comforter, extra blankets, and freshly ironed pillowcases to make it KOZY.

2. Make Sure There's a Comfy Place to Sit

Some people do not feel comfortable sitting on a bed and your guests shouldn't have to. Place an upholstered armchair or side chair in the room with a table and lamp close by.

3. Brighten Things Up

Always provide a good reading light near a chair or over the bed with a warm moody glow. A small night light near the best is a must, and another fixture or lamp near the desk is a little luxury. By brightening up your space and adding more than one light feature, this will create a relaxed and sophisticated room.

4. The Little things

A lighted clock next to the bed is a great amenity to have. Providing your guests will all the little things they may need is the best way to ensure the perfect stay. A box of tissues, paper and pens, a small selection of toiletries, scissors, tape, and a hairdryer to have all the bases covered.

5. Less is more

Resist the temptation to completely fill the room with bits and bobs. Avoid putting your beautiful collection of dolls on the dresser or filling the closet with shirts your guests will never borrow. In a guest room, less is more––more space, more comfortable, and more welcoming. Get rid of anything you would not find in a air bnb room.
