Whether you’re traveling this holiday season or planning to stay put to play host to both family and friends, the thought of where you’re going to stay or where you’re going to place your many guests, is one that’s probably not far from your mind. With just a few weeks till Thanksgiving, making sure that all your I’s are dotted and your T’s are crossed, will make this busy time of year one that both your guests as well as yourself will be able to enjoy!

Guest rooms should be both warm and inviting, a place where your guests can relax and feel at home in, as well as a place to escape to from the holiday chaos or even just a much needed nap. Put yourself in your guest’s shoes, what would make you feel at home, comfortable, at ease?  With just a few simple gestures, you can make sure that your guests are not only happy, but also well taken care of.

The Basics:

The basic guest room necessities that every room should have are a variety of standard pillows, extra blankets and throws, as well as a set of towels that should be left out for your guest to access whenever they need. So whether your guest likes their pillows soft and fluffy, or they prefer three layers of blankets to just two, you will be able to rest easy knowing that they will have a good night’s sleep.

For Extra Comfort: 

For added comfort, making sure that your guest has access to a bedside lamp, good size mirror and easily accessible fan, will make their stay even more enjoyable. Having a fan accessible to drown out noise during the night, or having the coziness of a warm reading light are all things we usually take for granted, so making sure that your guest still has access to these home comforts are important to your guest room’s design.

Added Perks:

We all enjoy extra perks, so why not make your guest room extra special with these added accessories! An elegant display of flowers for both beauty and scent, a box of tissues so they don’t have to walk all the way to the bathroom, a warm and inviting wall quote to make them feel at home, a pile of books and magazines for reading material in case they forget their own, and finally a water pitcher and glass in case they get thirsty in the middle of the night. By investing just a bit of extra time in your overall guest room appearance, not only will your guest thank you, but you will feel grateful knowing that you provided a home away from home.
