The holiday season is in full swing! Whether you are opening your home for guests to stay after a party or you have family visiting for an extended period of time, spruce up that guest room and make them feel as though they are staying at a five star resort! Fluff the Bed || Crisp white sheets, a cozy duvet, and lots of fluffy pillows will create a bed that was made for sleeping in until noon. Don’t skimp on the mattress! All those delightfully comfy bed linens will be wasted on a lumpy old mattress. A quality mattress is a great investment as it will last longer than average since it’s a bed that won’t be slept in nightly. Finish off the look with a folded throw at the end of the bed. It’s always a great idea to have an additional blanket handy since everyone has different sleeping temperature preferences. Keep it Clean || For some of us, the guest room can turn into a bit of a catchall. Be sure to declutter prior to your guests arriving. Not only will it heighten their experience, it will also force you to decide what to keep and what to purge! Be sure to designate an area for their belongings whether it is a chest with a clean surface or an oversized side chair. Create a calming vibe in the room by keeping the décor simple and the color palette light and airy so it truly feels like an escape (you might even find yourself wanting to spend the night in there sometimes!). Thoughtful Provisions || Create a mini-bar for your guests complete with a few snacks, bottled water, toiletries, a charging device, and a notecard with the Wi-Fi password. A bar cart is a great landing place for this set-up! Also include a few bath towels so they won’t have to bother asking every time they want to freshen up. If you have guests that are visiting the area for the first time, compile a list of must-see attractions, dining recommendations, and local events for them to refer to at their leisure! Lastly, add a vase of fresh flowers for a pop of color and subtle fragrance!
