Preparing your home for house guests should not be an intimidating task. There is actually something remarkably satisfying about helping your visitors feel welcome and comfortable. When you start to plan your guest room, think about what it is that you would expect, and do your best to make the room measure up to your standard. Here are some great tips for creating a welcoming guest room experience for your visitors.
Our first tip for creating the perfect guest bedroom is to consider the details. Being a good host means that you pay attention to those important details which let your guests know you are happy they are visiting and that you want them to be comfortable. Place clean towels on the foot of their bed and a bottle of water on the nightstand. If you are hosting long-term guests, consider providing them with a bathrobe and slippers. Another option would be to create a Houseguest Welcome Basket. Include essentials your guests might need, along with some non-essentials to make them feel welcomed.

Comfortable and quality bedding is a must in your guest room. Think about adding luxurious bed linens and comfort items such as a featherbed mattress topper, a selection of pillows, a cozy down comforter, and freshly ironed pillowcases. Supply extra blankets and linens if needed. There is nothing more inviting than a warm bed after a long day.
Always provide your guests with the necessities. Think of all the useful information and things they might need during their stay. For instance, compiling an informative ‘manual’ with things such asWiFi password and instructions for using different media and entertainment options can be a nice touch. Including useful objects such as a water carafe, jewelry dish, alarm clock, and something fragrant like flowers or a candle will also enhance your guest’s experience.

Let’s talk bathroom. Fill the guest bath with high quality towels and beautiful bath products. Think luxury hotel and put out a basket of sundries stocked with an array of toiletries and all the things your guests might need during their stay. Your guests will appreciate your attention to detail to make their visit comfortable and inviting.
Provide an empty closet or dresser for your guest to unpack his/her belongings. This will give them a sense of order and organization, making their stay more comfortable.

Keep your guest bedroom decor simple yet tasteful. Simple decor helps the room to look clean and organized. Try sticking to a neutral and timeless color palette that will satisfy all your visitors.
