Guest Bedroom Must Haves

When getting a guest room ready for house guest, there are some things to consider. The guests should be comfortable and have some necessities. Read along to get a better understanding of stocking this room for comfort.

The bedding should be comfortable and versatile. Make sure the bedding is soft and layered. Always use the top sheet covered by a duvet or comforter. It is also nice to have a throw or quit folded up at the end of the bed. Do so just in case it gets cold at night. Guest can always take blankets away, but they can’t add warm bedding if it is not available to them.

Make sure there is storage space for their clothing, belongings and their suitcase. Storage for clothing should be a dresser with some free drawers available. It is a good idea to have room in a closet with empty hangers. It is nice to have the option to hang clothes when traveling. Also make sure there is enough room in the closet for guest to store their suitcase. If no closet is available add a luggage rack or two at the end of the bed. This is convenient for packing and unpacking, using the bed as a place to fold and get organized. Having the suitcases at the end of the bed on luggage racks, makes it easier to pack. Plus, the bedding will not get stains from dirty suitcase wheels.

Place at least one night stand next to the bed. Add a bedside lamp to the night stand as well. A bedside lamp will add extra lighting for guest to use at night.

Place clean towels on the bed before visitors arrive. Whenever possible have a place for people to hang their damp towels. It is nice to have racks on the back of the door. This allows for someone to get ready in their bedroom without having to go back to the bathroom and find a place to hang a damp towel.

Details make for an inviting space. To make the room extra welcoming add a vase of fresh flowers to the night stand or a dresser. Visitors will be very appreciative of your hospitality if you take the details into account.
