My Eight Tips for A Comfortable Guest Room

11.17.2016

T'is the season for hosting guests and that means preparing a welcoming guest room. I mostly just host family, but occasionally a friend or two may stay and I want them to be very comfortable while here. Today I'm sharing my tips for having a comfortable room for your guests. I'm not hosting until Christmas this year. Thank goodness since my house is a shambles right now until the kitchen gets finished. 


The last time I shared this guest room I mentioned that the backside of this quilt had these cute orange roses on it and I would like to see what that side looked like so I added the orange/coral velvet pillow which doesn't match the orange in the quilt exactly, but they blend and I love the look.

Tip One: A comfy bed with comfy pillows and an extra quilt or blanket.

Tip Two: Have clean fresh towels and washcloths for each guest.
I like to place them in the room so they will know these are their towels to use plus the ensuite bathroom is tiny.

Tip Three: Have a large basket, bench, luggage rack, etc. for your guests to place their luggage on. Also make room for hang up clothes in the closet.

Tip Four: Offer good lighting by each side of the bed if possible so your guests can read in bed.

Tip Five:  Have a working clock with an easy to set alarm.

Tip Six: Supply a variety of snacks, water, and maybe some tissues and Advil just in case.

Tip Seven: A place to sit down and take off/put on shoes. It is also another spot to read with a good light.

Tip Eight: Provide some toiletries like body wash and a scrubby or washcloths. I like to put extra towels in the bathroom, too.

Another thing I do when family comes to stay is remove the decorative throw pillows so they don't have to mess with those.

I hope these tips help your guests feel comfortable.

 Maybe not too comfortable or they may never leave. 😏

Be sure to pin it!

Have a great day!

  2. So pretty and I love the color combination! Great tips for guests. We have my son's girlfriend's parents staying with us for Thanksgiving. I am excited and terrified! 😄

  3. These are all great tips and I do them as well. One more tip I could include is to clear the bathroom vanity of anything other than essentials. There is nothing worse than trying to find a place to set your makeup bag or shaving cream kit when the counters are covered with decorative pieces.

  9. Good advice! It's also nice to have an extra blanket around in case they're cold. Everybody has a different body thermostat.

  13. I'll come and stay! I always make sure there are one or two books in the room (I see you have these beside your clock), I purposefully select books that I know will be somewhat suitable for those staying and also a magazine, sometimes one wants to get stuck into a good novel and at others it's nice just to flick through the glossy pages of a magazine x
