If you have guests that travel to stay with you, it is important to have a dedicated space that is inviting and feels like home away from home. There are many ways you can add comfort to an existing space.
First, make sure you have quality bedding. Nice, crisp sheets are a welcoming retreat at the end of a long day of travel. Also, you should have light layers of blankets and extra blankets so guests can decide on their level of warmth and layering. This little customization will go a long way to making guests feel comfortable.
Storage should also be a priority in creating a guest space that works. Having a small dresser and some hanging space in a closet set aside for guests will allow them to unpack and settle in. This is sometimes an overlooked area in a guest space, but it makes a big difference for the guests.
Having a nightstand or reading lamp near the bed also offers a little luxury to a night away from home. A lamp allows for nighttime reading and also lights the way to the bed once the overhead lights are off.
Offer guests travel sized toiletries and fresh, clean towels in the room. You should offer light scented toiletries that will appeal to men or women. Offering a variety of toiletries will allow guests to choose the products they need.
Other luxury items include robes, slippers, reading materials and guides for local tourist attractions. If you have a local orchard or farm stand, you can include a basket of some fresh fruit for a local treat.
No matter where you have your guest space, it should reflect the style and colors you have in the rest of your home. You wants guests to come and feel relaxed but to still know that they are in your home, not a hotel. For more guest space inspiration, check out this article from Coastal Living.
