5 Tips for Creating the Perfect Guest Room

5 Tips for Creating the Perfect Guest Room

It’s that time of year again, as our house becomes a local B&B for our out of town friends and family. Check out my top 5 list of basic southern hospitality to make your guests feel welcome.

Honestly traveling while fun can be hard, especially if choosing to stay with a family member or friend. For the guest they feel as if they are intruding into your private space,  and for the hosts you feel like you need to be overly accommodating around your guests therefore it can be  stressful on both parties. It is never an easy scenario to mix a bunch of people that may live completely different lives into one space.  I have found implementing these little tips and tricks can make your guests feel comfortable. 

1. The Welcome Wagon I like for the guest room to immediately feel welcoming. By providing a tray with a snack basket, water carafe, and a hand written thank you note for the visit as southern social graces dictate. This literally a page right out the elite five star hotel’s playbook. Sometimes I add fresh flowers to the tray depending on what is in season and or possibly a candle, that just depends on the guest.The snack basket is a fun twist on a mini bar, and will provide a snack for between meals or a late night snack after the hosts have gone to bed. There is nothing worse than getting the munchies and feeling weird about going into someone else’s kitchen. If your feeling extra decadent you can install a mini bar as seen in Mini Bar Amorie (link here)I really love this sweet little water carafe. I have used in so many places it is ridiculous. I have used it to transport juice for breakfast in bed, in my bathroom to decant mouthwash in the a pretty vessel, and now in a guest room for water. 2.Dress the Bed I alway dress the bed in layers. It adds a touch of luxury to their experience. I like to use the finest thread count sheets, my favorite go too’s are the Hotel Sheets or Peacock Alley.  and not everyone is acclimated to your homes temperature. My husband I run hot so we tend to keep the air on and the house on the cooler side. Let’s be honest, you can put on more layers if your cold, but running around naked if your hot is frowned upon. I chose to layer the bed for this reason sheets, a light weight comforter and a warm blanket at the foot of the bed. I also store a down comforter in the guest closet which easily can be added by your guest if they get cold. 3. Add in the Extras I keep extra pillows in the closet as well. A soft feather pillow and two hypoallergenic poly filled, one firm and one medium. This way your guest will have options in case the ones on the bed are not to their liking. Also you might notice that I have plenty of empty hangers, that way your guest can hang their clothes with out feeling like that have inconvenienced you to get hangers or worst yet have to move your stuff to make room for their’s. 
As you can see I also provided robes in the closet as well. This is a trick I take straight from all the fancy hotels. Your guest utilize the robes in their travels from the bathroom, especial if you have a jack and jill bath or hallway bathroom. They are also super convenient to put over their pajamas for breakfast.  

4. Stock the Bathroom Yes I am notorious for snagging extra little hotel soaps which I intern use in my own guest bath. I place a cute basket under the counter with the hotel soaps along with a few other conveniences you guest could have unexpectedly forgotten, like toothpaste, toothbrushes, and feminine products. I also like to provide a hair drier, flat iron and curling iron, stored in a separate basket under the sink. This way your guest do not have to ask to borrow your personal ones. Also make sure that you have plenty of towels and wash clothes for the guest entire stay. Hampers for the soiled linens are also very helpful to keep either in the bathroom itself or or in the closet.

 

 5. Entertainment and Technology I always provide periodicals for late night or early morning reading, especially if you guest room does not have a television. Keep in mind your guest maybe from a different timezone or have jet lag that can cause those sleepless nights. Have a periodical can provide light reading at there leisure to help them drift off to sleep. One last tip would be provide charging cables for their technology. I recommend leaving them in the nightstand drawer. Just a simple placed cable can give them internet freedom to keep their lives up and running.  I also saw a really cute idea that one of my sweet neighbors had implemented, which was picture frame with the wifi password inside.  This too could join the charging cables. I love these night stands they not only look really cool but provide tons of space for your guests to unpack their technology, socks, undies, and a great place to store jewelry just drop a cute dish or basket inside one of the drawers so you guests don’t misplace their value pieces.

  2. I love seeing all the money saving ideas you have here on your blog. Sometimes the decor bloggers are too expensive with unobtainable standard for the the rest of us. I like how you mix things up, it is more authentic and real than a $10,000 sofa.

    • Hi Rosaleigh, thanks for dropping by. Yes I started my blog in January of this year, ironically for a whole different purpose of what I am actually doing right now. It has become a fun addiction. I must say I am all self taught as far as the blogging goes and it was quite a learning curve to say the least. As for the interior design, floral designs and graphic stuff that I do I went to school for all that, and it feels great to finally be using it. I appreciate your support and parsons like you self is what has made my tiny little hobby blog start to grow, so thank you.

  74. I love this post! Such a great idea to add robes and charging cables. I am on the fence about the snacks since we have a lot of littles that would squirrel them into nooks unknown. LOL

  75. My whole family will be crammed into my house this season. They love to visit since we always get snow here, however that means everyone is piled onto of each other inside for about a week.

  76. You have such a bright spirit and giving heart to host people in your home. I personally respect anyone that is willing to host people in there homes, as it is a total inconvenience for the host.

  77. Hey lady great post, and you have some really great tips for making your guest feel comfortable.

  78. If you want to monetize your content I have solution for you. You have great blog and could make a lot of money. Let me know if you are interested.

  79. Such good advice for a weary traveler. You know they are tired and jet lagged so what better than a treat basket. Even better if they are local favorites.

  80. I have so many people coming to my house for the holidays. Not sure how many plan to stay the night, but I will be ready no matter how many. Thank you.

  81. Prefect post for this busy time of year, I have my family and his family both coming to town. So glad we finished the basement this spring, now we actually have the space. I will add in some of your housewarming ideas, to make them feel even more special.

  82. Very good tips for visitors. I will add them to my home. Great blog with lots fo information. Thank you.

  83. Thank you for sharing such great ideas for holiday guest arrival. The robes are a nice idea as well as a welcome basket of snacks.

  84. Bedankt voor de geweldige giest kamertips. Ik hou echt van het idee om badjassen aan de kamers toe te voegen. Het wordt hier koud en dat zou een geweldige toevoeging zijn. Ook zoals het digitale laadstation, zeer actueel.

    Translation: Thank you for the great giest room tips. I really like the idea of ​​adding bathrobes to the rooms. It gets cold here and that would be a great addition. Also like the digital charging station, very current.

  85. Such good post of this time of year, I know we are getting ready for my parents next week and they will be here through the new year. They are snow birds that fly midwest every holiday season. lol

  86. I would like to pin this idea for later, but the goodies baskets makes a great guest idea for my out of town guests for our wedding in April, this blog is like a one stop shop for wedding planning.

  87. Good post. This time of year is the perfect time to talk about house guests. I would love to share this post on my site, naturally I will provide you with a hyperlink in your blog. Thanks for sharing.

  88. After research a couple of of the blog posts in your web site now, and I really like your manner of blogging. I bookmarked it to my bookmark website record and can be checking again soon. Pls take a look at my web site as properly and let me know what you think.

  89. I definitely wanted to write a brief comment to be able to say thanks to you for the pleasant ways you are sharing advice at this website. My incredibly long internet investigation has at the end been rewarded with excellent details to talk about with my visitors. Thank you again for everything.

  90. Aw, this was a really nice post. A concept I also wish to put in writing, like this one. It is hard to take time and actual effort to craft a very good article. Just want to let you know I read it and loved it and want to do a similar post.

  91. I want to convey my appreciation for your writing on this topic. You are right this time of year always brings house guests. Now I can add your tricks to my plan of action and impressed them. Thanks a ton.

  92. I found your weblog website on google while looking up home for the holidays, guest room ideas. You have some nice ones that are not so main stream, like adding the robes and a charging station. Plus I would have never thought to put a snack basket in the rooms, which is also a good idea. Adding to RSS feed to my MSN News Reader.

  93. Guest space is alway an issue in my one bedroom apartment in the city. Everyone I know wants to stay with me for the parade, tree lighting and window reveals, it is so crazy. I have a pull out sofa bed and 2 blow up mattresses any other ideas? I have tried to utilize every inch of space that I have, but it never seems like enough.

    • Yes NYC at the holiday is a big draw, and if you live their I assure you have a lot of friends. 😉 The pull out bed is a good option. Maybe if you have the space you could build a Murphy bed that becomes a bookshelf when not in use. The air mattress are by far your best option. Good luck 😉

  94. Oh yes, it is that time of year again, you are right. My door becomes an endless parade of family and friends that want to be close to beach for the holidays. Many thanks for producing such necessary but revealing tips that are easy to add to your guest room.

  95. Nice post with lots of good advice creating a sublime guest room. Love the robes and tech chargers.

  96. Yes I have a lot family coming in for Thanksgiving. My kids are no going to have to bunk up and camp out in the rec. room but it all good. I wish I have more space I feel bad putting my parent in a Buzz Lightyear room, but it’s all I got. Any suggestions for that?

    • Maybe try to eliminate most of the Buzz Lightyear items, if they can be stored away. If it’s just the bedding I would invest in “guest bedding” and pick up a nice neutral bed in a bag, for when you do have company. Then shop your home for other things you might be able to afdd into the room to make them feel more comfortable.

  97. I wish to show you some appreciation for exploring your discovered blogging talents. Your good talents and kindness in playing with all the stuff was helpful. I am not sure what I would have done if I had not discovered such a post like this my shared dorm is a mess. I am able to now look forward to my future. I will not hesitate to recommend your blog to anyone! Thanks a lot so much for this expert and sensible Kitchen upgrade guide.

  98. I actually wanted to comment in order to back you up on how xnpartant all of these tips really are. I appreciate you for all of the fabulous advice you are showing here. This time of year people really need to start preparing for out of town guests. I look forward to so many more amazing moments of reading here. Thanks a lot, once more for everything.

  104. Great post and I wanted to show you some love for rescuing me from my unexpected company. My mother in law has decided to come stay with us, while my sister in law delivers her first child.

I won’t hesitate to refer your website to all my friends, as you have saved my rump.

  105. So glad I found this post we have the troops coming in this weekend so now I get the rooms ready with style.

  107. You have done such a nice job making your guest room feel cozy, thanks for sharing such a nice blog post. Happy Holidays!

  108. Oh it is that time of year again isn’t it? agh I love my family but they are the worst when they crash at my place. They always bring their dog 🙁 which does not get along with my pets. How can I ask them to leave Rover at home or stay some where else?

    • Denise I have heard this same predicament from a lot of people. Just remember honesty is the best policy, in fact I could not imagine guests showing up and just assuming it is ok to bring along a pet, without prior arrangements.

  109. Have you ever considered about including recipes, specifically to feed a crowd of guests? I always find issue in that area, what to make people that have such specific dietary needs.

  110. This is a great post with lots of useful advice for creating a serine guest room. My problem is the guest room in our home pulls double duty as my office, and craft room. Any thought on how to create better experience with that?

    • Hi there, it sound like space is at a premium in your home. This is a very common issue for most homeowners. To me the space should be utilized for it main purpose first, so your office/craft room. Maybe consider a murphy bed with a book case on the back when not in use, or use a daybed in the space which could double as seating for your office. Do not under estimate the closet space you could use it house the craft area and supplies. Honestly I would need to see the space to give you the best options try emailing me a photo and I will see where there are possibilities.

  111. Hey very cool blog!! Guy.. Beautiful.. Wonderful.. I will bookmark your website. I am so satisfied with the numerous post containing useful information right here. thank you for sharing

  112. There is some attention grabbing points in this article but I don’t know if I want to add all these nice things, it might make my guest stay too long, ha. Good article, thanks and we FeedBurner.

  113. I am typically not into blogging, or reading blogs but I really admire your articles. This article has actually peaked my interest, since all my kids come home for the holidays and I want to seem young a hip. I’m going to bookmark your site and keep checking for brand new information.

  114. Great tips,I would have never thought to put snacks and water into a guest room, or the robes! I do have a charging station in the kitchen and the wifi password framed up on the nightstand from a Pinterest article I saw 6 months ago.

  115. This year we will be having a few mates from the US joining us for the summer. Which down here is starting up in a few months. Perfect guidelines for making them feel homey. Thanks.

  116. Thanks you for this superb advice on how to make guest feel more comfortable, I handout considered some of these things before.

  117. Linked over from IG to see what this room was all about. Great tips for out of town guests.

  118. I know we all think of extra towels and fresh sheets but you take entertaining guests to a whole new level. Robes, snacks, hotel shampoos and salt irons, girl I would be filling up my suitcase, lol.

  120. I truly wanted to send you a small remark to brighten your day. How can I express my gratitude to you for all the pleasant tips and tricks you are writing about on this website. My long internet investigation has finally been paid off with this incredibly detailed blog post. I feel rather happy to have discovered your weblog and look forward to so many more readings here. Thanks a lot once again.

  121. I always have guests at the holidays, no way around it. Nice read on how to make them more comfortable, the robes are a good idea and the barging cables. But question how do I get them to leave? lol

  122. An interesting discussion so I wanted to add a valuable comment. I believe that it’s best to write more on this matter, everyone will be having company over the holiday so strike while the iron is hot. Cheers

  123. Yes I have guest all the time. Great post love your home. Your warm and friendly help entails this much to me. Warm regards

  124. Still hopping around your site, I must say this is a really good post. I always end up with all the company at my house, (huge eye roll) So now I can be ready and really impress them JENRON style. xoxoxox

  125. You have one great looking blog lady. This post is near and dear to me since I am the hostess for all my family at the holidays. Great tips to make them feel even more special our home. The robes are a nice touch and the treat basket too. I never thought about them feeling odd about coming down at nigh for a snack, but that does make sense why they are all so hungry in the morning.

  126. We seem to be the B&B of our family too, so I feel ya on that. Great tips, I specifically like the charging cables and the robes. I can not tell you how many time my poor children have seen uncle Harry coming out of the bathroom, in only a towel. It’s like the Griswolds over here. LOL

  127. I decide to link over a read a few other post since you impressed me so on the mirror project. You have a really good blog, and I think it will catch right on. Although your guest room is nothing short of a 5 star hotel, I shall add it to my bucket list!

  128. I want to come stay at your house! Honestly, it is probably better than any four star hotel I could book. The guest suites so cozy and homey I bet you stay booked all the time.

  129. Perfect timing on seeing this post I have out town guests next week for my husband’s birthday! Now I can really wow them with my southern hospitality.

  130. I should print this out for the entire family to see and post it on the refrigerator. This is how a house should look before you have house guests! End of story!

  131. I was scanning through my Instagram and saw your pretty picture of your guest room. I linked over to see the post and I just had to comment. You have some great ideas here, I would never want to leave a guest suite like that.

  132. Perfect timing on this post we have out of town guests this weekend, so I am frantically scurrying around to get things ready, I have already added a snack basket with bottled water. Phone chargers and wifi passwords. Greats ideas thanks! TTYL

  133. The in laws are on the way!!!!!!!!!! Oh gawd what will I do!!!!!! Good thing I found your super helpful post, only problem I don not want them to not stay too long, lol. So we will eliminate the snacks I guess.
