Guest rooms are best when they truly feel welcoming. Your visitors always appreciate your going the extra mile to create a comfy experience. Here are some guest room ideas to make their stay much cozier – so much they may regret leaving:
Leave Out a Throw Blanket
Leave extra blankets on the bed in winter or thrown over the chair just in case it gets chilly. A throw blanket across the bed not only makes the bed look more welcoming, but also eliminates the need for guests to ask for blankets in daytime or at night!
Don’t Wait to Share the WiFi Password
Be courteous by offering the WiFi password on a chalkboard or note card so that guests don’t have to ask for it. To keep it simple, just write the network and passcode down on a piece of paper and tape it to the mirror for added convenience.
Gift Handcrafted Bar Soap
Make your guests’ stay feel luxurious with some artisan soap, and maybe a bathbomb, just for them. Place these goodies and a washcloth on top of a few folded towels, so guests know these are for their own personal use.
Water and a Glass
Why not provide a water carafe and a drinking glass in the guestroom? This small gesture is both convenient and thoughtful. It’s something unmistakably done to make their stay easy and enjoyable.
A few current magazines or books on the bedside table can be a nice touch. The key is to either choose current reading, relevant to their interests, or classic books with wide appeal. Be sure magazines are in good repair and know that your guest may interpret the reading materials as a gift- so be prepared to say goodbye to these books and magazines.
Let Them Settle in With Hangers
Provide your guests with some extra hangers and free closet space to unpack clothes and hang items in the closet. They may also enjoy empty drawers for folded clothing. Being able to cozy into the space, instead of living out of luggage, can be a large stress reliever.
Spa Slippers and a Robe
People rarely pack a pair of slippers or a robe for vacation or visiting friends and family. A robe and a couple sizes of slippers can stay in your guest room closet when no one is visiting. Then, when guests arrive, set these treats out for the duration of their stay. You can hang the clean robe on a hook for lazy mornings or cozy nights. This way guests can pad around your house extra comfortably.
Guest Room Sleep Accessories
It’s insightful to have extra sleep masks and ear plugs on hand just in case. It’s also nice to have a nightlight available, if not plugged in. These details may help guests get a good night’s rest in your home, or at least convey that you care about their sleep quality.
