2 Guest Room Planning Tips

Whether you frequently have family and friends visit, or just the occasional visitor, a well-planned guest room will make your visitors feel comfortable and invited. Here are a few tips to help you plan the perfect guest retreat.


The most comfortable guest rooms are ones that are cheery and bright. You may enjoy the ambiance of a darker room, but your guests may have completely different tastes. The safest bet to make a room inviting for everyone is to keep the room painted in neutral colors, and choose bedding and décor that is gender neutral and inviting. You can also change the bedding and décor with the season. Many guests love seeing a Halloween or fall-themed guest room in October.


You will want your guest room to be as close to home as possible for your guests. Having a closet stocked with available hangers, a small chest of drawers for unmentionables, and a nightstand with a drawer for other essentials will help create a more home-like atmosphere for your guests. You may also want to consider having a basket with fresh towels and enough room for toiletries as well, especially if you don’t have a private bathroom to offer your guests.

When you plan for your guestroom you will want to think about what make you comfortable when traveling. Incorporate these items in to your plans and your guests will be comfortable for their entire stay!
