1. Comfy Mattress
Think of your guest bedroom like a hotel room. Do you like sleeping in hotel beds with hard, dirty, or otherwise uncomfortable mattresses? Neither do your guests. Your home should offer comfort like the best 5 star hotels. Check this article out for choosing the best guest bedroom mattress.
Think back to times when you’ve stayed with a friend or been at a hotel. You might have just spent hours traveling, be in a different time zone, or just because, but you get hungry! You don’t have the convenience of going to your kitchen and grabbing a snack or drink. It can be awkward to ask your host for a bite to eat, especially at odd times of the day. Have some bottled water and other refreshments sitting out for your visitors in your guestroom to provide a little extra layer of comfort. Here’s a helpful list for preparing a snack basket for your guest bedroom.
I don’t know about your but I get a bit grumpy when I realize I’ve forgotten to pack something important like toothpaste or deodorant on a trip. It’s easy enough to buy a new tube of toothpaste, but who wants to take the time to go buy some when you’re on a trip?! Stock your guestroom with an assortment of toiletries that might come in handy in case they forgot to pack something. Don’t forget First-aid items such as Advil, Band-aids, and lotions. You can always find travel-sized products at most grocery and super stores. Also, save the toiletries from hotels when you go on trips yourself. Source.
4. Alarm Clock
It’s true that most people now have cell phones with an alarm but it’s still best to provide visitors with an alarm clock in your guest bedroom. Anything will do, but I’ve put a nature sounds clock in our guestroom in case our visitor is used to ambient noises at home. Nothing wrong with going the extra mile to make people comfortable in your house! Check out some clock options here.
5. Fresh Towels
Provide guests with plenty of towels. Hand towels, body towels, bath towels. They often won’t use more than a couple towels anyway, but your visitors will appreciate having more than what they need. Bed Bath & Beyond usually has soft towels for very reasonable prices.
Everyone seems to have a different answer for what makes the “perfect” pillow. Soft, hard, big, little, foam, feather… best just to give your guests a few options to choose from. Target has a nice guide for selecting pillows based on how you sleep.
Like pillow choice, people are quite particular about room temperature when sleeping. Even if it’s cold outside, still make sure your guestroom has a fan in case your visitors sleep best when they’re chilled. The ambient noise might also provide an extra sense of comfort. Find a variety of fans here.
On the other side to keeping your visitors cool with a fan is keeping them warm. Provide extra blankets in case someone gets cold. Find blankets here.
Whether your visitors are in town for fun or for business, we all like to know we look presentable when we walk out the door. Guests will especially appreciate having a full length mirror with good lighting. Find hundreds of mirror options here.
For guests that are planning to stay longer than a few days, they’ll be grateful to have a place to unload their suitcase. Not only is it just annoying to have to fish around in a suit case to find an outfit, but pulling wrinkly clothes out of a bag isn’t all that nice either…. Chest of drawer options.
