Must-Haves for Making Your Guests Feel at Home


Must-Haves for Making Your Guests Feel at Home


With the holidays coming up, you’re probably going to end up playing host at least once. Traveling can be stressful and staying in an unfamiliar place can be challenging. By making your guest room even more inviting, you can ensure a positive, happy trip. Here are some tips and must-haves for helping your guests feel at home in your guest room.


Closet Space with Extra Hangers


While most rooms include a closet, these spaces often get filled up with extra clothes, holiday decorations, or just junk that has nowhere else to go. Even guest room closets aren’t immune to this. Your guest room closet doesn’t have to stay empty all the time, but you better make room when people come over. Not only that but make sure you keep extra hangers in plain view. There’s nothing worse than ending up with wrinkled clothes because you’ve just got one hanger to use. 


Extra Blankets and Pillows


Everybody sleeps differently, and everyone is equally picky about how they sleep. Some folks run hot while others shiver under the thickest comforter. Don’t leave your guests’ comfort up to chance. Keep plenty of extra blankets and pillows in your guest room to meet their needs. 


Big, Fluffy Towels


Your guests are likely on vacation, so why not help them pamper themselves? Set aside fluffy, cozy towels for your guests. Here’s a hot tip: have you ever heard of bath sheets? If not, you’re really missing out. Unlike bath towels, which are fine for toweling off but often too small for adults, bath sheets are large enough to cover you completely. It’s a little comfort, but it can make all the difference. 


Basic Toiletries 


Everybody forgets a toothbrush, razor, toothpaste, or comb at least once while traveling. Save your guests from a trip to the store by keeping an extra set of toiletries in your guest room. After every visit, make sure you restock this set. This simple act can make you a hero to someone who realizes they forgot toothpaste at midnight. 


Some items to include: toothpaste, toothbrush, shampoo & conditioner, soap, lotion, disposable razor, and a hairdryer in plain view. 


Switch Up Your Style 


Since your guest room won’t necessarily be used year-round, you can take some design liberties with it. You don’t need to match this room’s décor with the rest of the house. Add personal touches, like fun throw pillows or a big, comfortable armchair. Choose a unique rug or hang eclectic art on the walls. Just be sure not to get too crazy with it and disarm your guests! 



When guests are coming, there’s a lot to get ready. You’re doing laundry, washing sheets, cleaning the house, all that. It can be easy to overlook little things like clean towels or closet space. But with these little touches, you’ll make all the difference to your guests.
