Ready to celebrate? You’re not alone. Even though health experts expect the holidays to look a lot different this year, no one wants their holiday spirit to be canceled or minimized. Even though you may have less family on the road this year, we’re here to help you prepare your guest room with the perfect decor to make it feel truly special for the guests you can have. Here are our tips for getting your guest room ready for the holiday season.
Make the bed cozy.
Do you want your guests to sleep on a lumpy old mattress? Of course not. We all know the best home-away-from-home experiences are the ones where you can get the best night’s sleep. To make sure your guest bed is cozy, clean the linens and maybe even invest in a mattress topper.
Stock up on fresh linens.
When visiting friends or family, few things are worse than running out of clean towels. Make sure to stock your guest bathroom with fresh towels, washcloths, and even a change of pillowcases. Consider stocking the closet with a second set of clean bed linens too—you never know if your guests may be clean freaks!
Clean before they arrive.
Chances are you don’t spend a lot of time in your guest space. Before your guests arrive, vacuum the room and spray it with an air freshener. Wipe down any cabinets or side tables to run settled dust. Light a candle, if you choose!
Prepare an amenity basket.
When traveling, you never know what you might forget at home—and your guests are no different. To make your guests feel welcome, prepare an amenity basket of items they may have left behind. Think of what you might forget—like toothpaste, makeup remover, hairspray, a razor, or over-the-counter aspirins—and add it in. It’s also nice to leave an extra hairdryer, iron, and mini ironing board in the guest bathroom for easy access.
Install new blinds or shades.
Privacy, convenience, and comfort are a must for any guest room. Installing blackout window drapes or motorized shades could be just what your guests need to have the most comforting stay at your home. Layering drapes or curtains over roller shades can also create an interesting look while providing optimal functionality.
