Preparing the Guest Room for Visitors


If you are planning on having some of your guests stay overnight at your home – you’ll want to ensure that your accommodations are actually accommodating. Here are a few tips and pointers to create an amazing guest experience!

  • The most basic essential of an inviting guest room is that it must be clean and uncluttered! Put any personal items that are lying around in a box or a basket and tuck it away in a closet until they leave.
  • Wash and make-up the bed a couple of days before your guest come. They will appreciate a freshly made bed! Bedding that has been in a linen closet or on a bed for a while loses its fresh smell.

Simple Yet Sweet

Get a simple tray for the bed. Stack with books, magazines, special treats like their favorite candy and a seasonal candle. Another great addition is a pretty plant or fresh flowers.

Make sure to clean out the dresser drawers and closet, in case they’d like to unpack their suitcase and get comfy.

Set out a carafe of water and a glass on the nightstand. Keep it freshly filled, so your guests don’t have to hunt in the cupboards when a middle-of-the-night thirst strikes.
