Whether you’re hosting a crowd for a few days or your best friend for one night, your guest room plays a crucial role in making your guest feel comfortable and able to enjoy the holidays with you. Because many of us have relegated our guest spaces to “overflow” rooms all year long, it’s time to clean up, spruce up, and get ready for those holiday visitors.
…But who are we kidding? You likely have less than a week to update your guest bedroom. Instead of listing the steps to a full room makeover that will surely overwhelm you, we are sharing three easy tips you can implement in a day or less.
A styled bedside table sends a message above and beyond, “I cleaned this room for you.” It shows that you care about every moment of your guest’s experience.
We suggest adding figurines or decor that speaks to your geographic area. Your travelling guest will be delighted with the local flavor and feel just a bit more like they belong. (Oh, and a fresh bouquet never hurts, either.)
Stock the shelves with fresh towels, wash cloths, hand soap, shampoo, conditioner, and body wash. You could even use the travel-size bottles so your guest knows these amenities are just for them.
