10 tips for the perfect guest bedroom

If you’re like us, we’re sure you love to entertain friends and family regularly at home. And as a great host, you love nothing more than creating a warm and welcoming atmosphere for all your guests - especially in the guest bedroom. 


But sometimes that’s easier said than done, right? 


Don’t worry. We’re here to help you create the perfect guest bedroom for your weary guests to relax and unwind. 


All you need to follow are these 6 great tips that you can use right away. 


Tip 1: Make sure the bed is comfortable


Buying a new mattress can be expensive, making it is easy to relegate the oldest, saggiest mattress to the guest bedroom. Try using a quality air mattress instead, which is not just cheap but quite comfortable as well.

 

Tip 2: Make room for suitcases


Your guests might have spent a gruelling day travelling. Which means the last thing they want is to walk around the guest bedroom trying to avoid their suitcases strewn across the floor. Something as simple as a small table or bench will provide enough area for your guests to keep their suitcases. 


Tip 3: Clear it out


It is easy to designate the guest bedroom as the go-to space for all the things that don’t fit anywhere else. Fight the urge and make sure the bedroom has only what is needed. 

 

Tip 4: Keep drawer and cupboard space


It is important to keep empty drawer or cupboard space for your guests, especially if they are going to stay in your home for a longer period of time. This doesn’t just make them feel more welcome, but also makes the space less cluttered.


Tip 5: Keep extra toiletries handy


How many times have you forgotten to carry a toothbrush or some toothpaste when you’re travelling? Exactly! So think of anything your guest might forget and put it in a little basket for them to find in the bathroom. 


Tip 6: Remember the basics


A clock, a pen and some paper or even a box of tissues can make all the difference to how comfortable your guest feels in the guest bedroom. So cover all the basics. And if you can’t spare extra amenities such as an extra iron and ironing board, make sure you tell the guests where they can find it in your home should they need it. 

See, we told you these tips will be simple right? And you can start using them right away too!
