Are you looking for ideas to spruce up your guest room for visiting guests this summer?
Guest rooms are an area of your home where you can pull out all the stops! Because they are not used as often as regular bedrooms, you can attend to these with special effort.
Guest bedrooms should immediately say “welcome” when your guest opens the door. They’re also the perfect room to show off your sense of humor by using whimsical furniture or tongue-in-cheek items for accessories.
Aside from the basics of a comfortable, freshly made bed, night table, reading light and perhaps a reading chair, here are some items you may not have thought of that really make your guest bedroom the ultimate in hospitality:
Our wonderfully scented McCall’s candles
Bowl of fresh fruit
Jar of treats, candy or mints
CD player with a variety of CDs
Television with DVD player and a few movies
Books or magazines that would interest your guest
Both soft and firm pillows
Down comforter or feather bed
A selection of small soaps and toiletries
Bottled water with a glass
Mini-refrigerator stocked with favorite beverages
Bed tray for breakfast in bed or crossword puzzles
Closet space or clothes/coat rack
Budget tip for guest room furnishings. Purchase various pieces of used furniture and paint them all one color to make the pieces have a cohesive look in the room.
As always, we hope that you enjoy this post and find it helpful in restyling the place you live into the place you love!
