9 Ways to Create a More Welcoming Guest Room

It’s easier than you think to create a comfortably beautiful bedroom for overnight guests that will make them feel welcome and pampered. Make it easy for your guests to function in an unfamiliar space by providing the important things they need.  Here are a few important must-haves in decorating a perfect guest room.

Your overnight guests don’t expect hotel-like accommodations and amenities from your spare room, but you want to be as good a host as you can be. And there’s more to creating a cozy space than offering a comfy bed and a towel to use in the bathroom. Check out what home experts recommend putting in a guest room, so your friends and family have a happy stay.

If your extra room is small, there’s probably not enough space for a proper reading chair. Solve this problem with a body pillow—your guests can use it as a makeshift couch during the day and snuggle up with it while they sleep. Or at least put extra pillows on the bed, suggests Kristine Kennedy, Editorial Director of the home website Wayfair.com. “Lots of pillows are essential for propping up and reading in bed.” Just tell your guests where to put the pillows when they un-make the bed each night.

2. A Tray
“A tray signifies that the items placed there are specifically intended for the guest, and they’re not a regular part of the room,” says Taniya Nayak, a celebrity interior designer and HGTV star. Whether you put it next to the bed for your guest’s jewelry or in your guest bathroom for your visitor’s toiletries, a tray keeps your guests’ belongings organized and easily accessible.
