We love having friends and family come to visit. Whether they’re traveling from near or far, it’s important to have a nice, comfortable space for them to stay. Guest rooms are one of the sometimes overlooked areas of the home. Luckily, there are a few small tweaks you can make to yours to make it nice and home-y for your guests! And even better, these simple changes won’t break the bank and are perfect for the everyday girl budget.

Match Your Home Aesthetic

You don’t want your guests to feel like they’re being shipped off to a dull, empty space. Try to keep the aesthetic of the home carried through the guest room too. Whether you have a light and bright look or pops of color, find even little ways to incorporate this same feeling into the space.

Leave out Towels

Many people don’t think to lay out some towels for guests. Obviously, they can easily ask, but by providing them upon arrival, you avoid the hassle. This is also convenient for if they tend to shower either late at night or early in the morning when you may not be awake. Along the same lines, make sure your bathroom is fully stocked with shower supplies and toilet paper!

Provide Extra Pillows and Blankets

Everyone has different preferences when it comes to the amount of pillows and blankets they use at night. Or maybe your home runs cooler than theirs, so taking the time to provide these extra comforts can go a long way!

Space to Unpack

Depending on how long a stay your guests have, they may want to unpack their bags. Whether it’s a simple dresser or some hangers in the closet, make sure there’s somewhere for your guests to put their clothes if they so choose.

What’s the Wifi?

In our technological era, one of the first questions people seem to ask is “what’s your wifi password?” We love the idea of leaving a cute little framed note with the login info for your guests to use. That way, if they have multiple devices, they don’t need to repeatedly ask you for the password.

A Hidden Oasis

Sometimes your guests may want a little space and break from the togetherness of your visit. The guest room should be a hidden oasis where your guests can escape to take a breather. If you have the space, try to make this a separate living space for them to go relax. Some comfy chairs, maybe a TV or filled bookcase, can go a long way.
