How to Set up Your Guest Bedroom

How to Set up Your Guest Bedroom

Ah, houseguests. Whether they’re in town for a night, a weekend or (gulp) a month, here are a few ways to create an utterly delightful experience for your temporary-stayers. We let the five senses be our wonder-guide.

Touch - guest rooms should have plushy pillows and sheets

Touch

The bread and butter. A comfy mattress wrapped in delicious sheets topped with plushy pillows. Layer on a fuzzy throw blanket and your guests might turn into roommates.

sight - Fresh flowers in a simple vase. That cool vintage print you picked up at the flea market to make the guest room perfect.

 

Sight

Fresh flowers in a simple vase. That cool vintage print you picked up at the flea market. A curious paperweight shaped like a pyramid. Create a little intrigue for your guests to feast their eyes on as they fall asleep. Best to shy away from clown imagery.

smell - A candle, or scented oil to add just the slightest hint of fragrance.

 

Smell

They say smell is connected to memory, so here’s your chance to imprint on your guests. A candle, or scented oil to add just the slightest hint of fragrance. Lavender or sandalwood are good choices, but then again so is birthday cake.

taste - A guest room with nightly pillow mint or a jar of mini bar jelly beans.

 

Taste

Let’s be honest, the best part of staying in a hotel is the promise of the nightly pillow mint. If only to keep you away from buying the $25 mini-bar jelly beans. Leave a little something for your guests to nibble on. They will love you forever.

Sound

Here’s the thing. Your lively kiddos and/or vocal dog will probably not put themselves on mute. That’s ok. It’s part of the charm. Equip your guests with a sound machine, so even if it sounds like Mardi Gras downstairs, they can be lulled to sleep by sounds of the ocean.

Internet - Supply your guests with the WIFI password. Nothing says “make yourself at home” like being able to binge-watch your Netflix.

 

And the sixth sense.

The Internet

Supply your guests with the WIFI password. Nothing says “make yourself at home” like being able to binge-watch your Netflix in someone else’s sheets.
