Simple tips and ideas to turn your guest bedroom into a total home from home haven your friends and family will be queuing up to stay in. Our tips will help make your guests feel totally welcome and pampered.
Firstly you’ll need a really comfy bed for your guests to snuggle down into. Check out the gorgeous range of beds from Room To Sleep. Dress the bed in freshly washed, soft bed linen and add comforting extras like pretty throws and cosy cushions to create a homely feel.
Add bedside tables with nice lamps, that give off soft light and a few nightstand essentials like a clock, box of tissues, maybe a couple of good books and room for your guest to charge their mobile phone.
Add in a wardrobe with plenty of space for your guests to hang their clothes. Also create a dressing table area with a mirror so your guests can get dressed and apply make-up and do their hair easily. A simple desk or table with table top mirror is sufficient – add a few nice touches to the table like a vase of fresh flowers or nice scented candle.
If there’s space add a small sofa or comfortable chair, or create a window seat area – somewhere your guest can escape to for a little quiet time or relax and sit a cup of tea if they’re the type that get up really early.
A Few Essentials
Add in a few handy items that your guest might need – mini toiletries, the WIFI password written down, iPhone charger, freshly washed fluffy towels, neatly folded extra blankets and a few pillows – so they can help themselves without feeling like they’re pestering you.
A Few Lovely Extras
It always makes you feel extra special when staying with friends/family if your host has added a few thoughtful extra touches to your bedroom. Think about adding freshly laundered bath robes, magazines you know your guest will love, fresh flowers, maybe a tea-tray anything you know your guest will just adore.
