If you have a guest room to receive guests, even if it is small, you can make your guests feel at home. Just by taking into account some small details, you will achieve a cozy and comfortable space that will make you a great hostess.
The Bed Should Be Big
On many occasions, the guests arrive two by two. Therefore, if space allows, you can choose to have a double bed in the guest room. In these beds, even a couple of friends who have a small child could sleep quite comfortably.
If the issue is about gaining space in the room, either because it is small, or because you also use it as a study, an ironing room, etc., a sofa bed or a trundle bed will perform the same task in half as much space. If you have small children and often invite their friends you could go for bunk beds which take up little space, while, at the same time being a very fun option.
A Neutral And Cozy Guest Rooms Decoration
If you want to make sure that anyone who spends a night in your home, be it a friend or a family member, feels comfortable, choose neutral and soft colors for the walls and decoration. When someone sleeps in a house that is not their own, they tend to feel more relaxed to fall asleep in a low-recharged environment with no strident colors. But not because it is neutral, it must not be cold. Look for the touch of warmth with a wooden piece of furniture, or with a soft blanket at the foot of the bed…
Add a touch of color, for example, in the cushion cover and you could achieve the perfect balance. Make sure there is a small closet or dresser in the guest room where they can leave their clothes. A coat rack or bench can also be very useful when leaving the travel bag or personal belongings.
Towels And Bedding For Guest Room
If possible, always have a set of towels and sheets ready to receive your potential guests. You will not be caught by surprise if they appear suddenly, and they will feel very welcome if they wait for you with clean sheets and towels ready. Specifically, three towels per person (hands, shower, and toilet).
By the way, although for your daily use towels we do not recommend the color white since it does not preserve the original tone for a long time, for your guests it may be the most appropriate. When they leave, wash everything and book it again for your next guests, without mixing it with your own bed and bath linens.
Don’t Miss The Aroma Of A Clean Guest Room
Even if it is not a guest room for daily use, make sure it is clean and ventilated, so that it does not accumulate dust or bad odors. Try to always have an aromatic candle with a soft perfume present. That way you won’t have to start cleaning in a hurry when you have guests, and they will have the best impressions when they enter a room where the clean smell is breath.
Extra Details To Takes Notes
In addition, if you want to make it clear that people are more than welcome to your guest room you can add small details that add up to many points. Having a towel cloth slippers or leaving them a card on the table with the wifi key or a jug of water with glasses to drink at any time of the night are some small gestures that will make your guests feel at home.
