Creating a Cozy Guest Bedroom

Here’s what we do to prepare for guests

If you’re having guests this holiday season, chances are you’ve been thinking about how to make the experience as pleasant as possible for everyone involved. Whether you have a formal spare room or are making space somewhere else in your home for your guests to stay, there are a few things you can do to make them feel comfortable and welcome.

Here are a few things we do to prepare for guests in our own homes:

ADD COZY TEXTURES

Adding extra blankets, throws, and pillows to your guest space not only brings in more texture for a cozier look but also adds functionality. Even if you keep your home at a standard temperature, everyone has different preferences, and it’s always nice to have an option for extra warmth at the foot of the bed if needed.

BRING IN SOMETHING FRESH

Instantly make your space feel more considered by adding a touch of greenery or a simple arrangement to the bedside table. If you’re rotating guests throughout the season or you don’t have a green thumb, use faux stems or plants instead for one less thing to think about.

PROVIDE STORAGE SPACE

If you don't have extra drawers, you can clear out for your guests' use, be sure to add a basket or two for them to store their belongings during their stay. You can even add a larger, lidded basket in the room as well and let guests know they can store their worn clothing in them during their stay.

ADD ADDITIONAL SEATING

If you don’t have secondary seating in your guest space, consider moving a spare chair into the room for convenience. Especially if you’re housing more than one guest in the room, it’s always nice to have areas to sit apart from the bed.

LEAVE CONSIDERED EXTRAS

Stack coffee table books for your guests to flip through, add a candle and some matches and leave a carafe of water beside a glass for their comfort. Sometimes it’s the little things that matter most.

  1. Under the add additional seating photo there is a stone sidetable in light beige stone next to the chair. Where is this beauty from?
