How to Make the Perfect Guest Bedroom

How to Make the Perfect Guest Bedroom

When you’re a guest in someone’s house, do you feel at home? Not always. Some places feel more like home than others, because of the hospitality. Do you need some help in this area? We can help you make the perfect guest bedroom. Here are some tips.

Furnish a clean, fresh-smelling room with clean, fresh-smelling bedclothes, curtains, and towels.

Nothing makes you want to go home more than arriving at your guest room and realizing that it’s filled with dust and smells like dirty socks. Sweep or vacuum, not forgetting those baseboards. Dust, and spray some light air refresher into the air. Wash all the bedclothes, curtains, towels, hand towels, and washcloths.

Furnish extra blankets.

Some people, especially the elderly, get cold, even when it seems warm to everyone else. Always keep extra blankets of different degrees of warmth.

Furnish an alarm clock.

Most people nowadays use their phones for alarm clocks. Some, however, just prefer an old-timey alarm clock, either a digital one that plays the radio to awaken them or even the old round ones with two bells on top that ring ever so loudly.

Furnish a full-length mirror.

When guests prepare for their day, being away from home may already have them stressed out. Provide a full-length mirror, so they can be confident in their appearance.

Furnish an empty closet with hangers and an empty chest.

It’s hard to keep your clothes looking nice when you travel. It’s even harder if you can’t store them outside of your suitcase so the wrinkles can relax. An empty closet with hangers and an empty chest will be quite helpful for guests.

Furnish a universal charger and Wi-Fi password.

How often do we leave your phone chargers at home when we go somewhere? How many of us only use our tablets on Wi-Fi? Keep a universal phone charger for your guests, and print off and tape up the password to your Wi-Fi.

When guests prepare for their day, being away from home may already have them stressed out. Provide a full-length mirror, so they can be confident in their appearance.

Furnish a basket of toiletries.

Nothing is more aggravating than to get somewhere and realize you’ve forgotten shaving cream, razors or shampoo. A basket of toiletries could save your guests a lot of stress.

Furnish a basket or area of refreshments.

Whether bottled water, juice, mints, gum, cereal or granola bars or fruit, snack baskets can make guests feel comfortable until the next meal.

Furnish a desk for working.

Many times when people travel, they must take their work with them. Offer them a desk to work at when they are in their rooms.

Furnish plants or flowers.

Plants and flowers look lovely in a room, and they provide oxygen. They will serve to make the room seem fresh.

There are other things you can do, as well. Just think of things you’d like if you were the guest. For more ideas, contact Wickmans Furniture. Search our blog for help with other projects.
