A guest room should be a warm and welcoming place, merging the amenities of a hotel and the intimacy of a home. In theory, your guest room can be the easiest room to plan. You don’t use it every day, and house guests typically only visit for a week or so, making it the perfect room to experiment with decor trends. At some point or another, we have all probably been guests in someone else’s house. Sometimes, it’s incredibly comfortable and feels like a vacation, other times, you wish you had booked a hotel room.

If you’re like us and want to make your visitor feel at home during their retreat, even with a budget that may not be enough to create a complete resort oasis, read on to find some tips and tricks to make your guest feel as at home as possible.
Keep the bedsheets clean for when they arrive. Do you know that fresh sheet feeling right after doing laundry? That’s what you want your guests to feel when they lie down after what may have been a long journey for them. Keep your guests comfortable without compromising on style. Along with a comfortable bed, the addition of matching pillows, fresh pillowcases and a cosy comforter never fail to impress.
Your guest may want to unwind after a long day of touristy activities, or big meals at restaurants. Having a seating area in the room can help them do this if they prefer to not sit in their bed during the day. Adding a bean bag with a gorgeous symmetry of patterns to the room can be a fun and innovative way to help your guest relax and rejuvenate for your night plans.
Using our phone torches doesn’t always cut it, and sometimes our wall lights are just too bright to leave on while we finish up our nightly routines.
The addition of a beautifully crafted lamp will help elevate the room and give it a touch of home and a pop of colour.
Keep the lamp near their bed for easy access to it before nighttime.
A lot of people need water through the night, and we all know the struggle of having to walk all the way to the kitchen to get some. Save your guest the trouble by keeping a jug of water ready with glass, on a side table near their bed. Forget about the overused mundane metal water jug and go for a sustainable bamboo jug set to add floral blooms to any room.
If you don’t feel like using plain coloured wallpaper, give your guest room a playful touch by adding in a fun wallpaper with lovely designs, to make your guest truly feel as though they are somewhere exotic.
If funky wallpaper isn’t the route you want to take, you can add wall art or hang decorative pieces to give it a personal touch. Items like paintings, or decorative plates will always help spruce up a room.
When we go on vacation, we tend to forget some of our essential travel belongings in all our excitement. Keep spare chargers and toiletries ready for your guest in a neat container to ensure they have everything they need. Everyone loves a pretty looking organizer.
By following these simple guidelines, you can help your guest have an incredibly smooth and comfortable journey. No matter whether you have a couple, a single individual or some family members coming to stay with you, covering your ground with all these essentials will assure your guests a pleasant stay.
