Make a Guest Room Feel Like Home

Make your guest room perfect
Many of us this weekend will be welcoming friends and family into our home for the Easter celebrations. Why not take some extra care this week and get your guest room ship shape and make it feel like home for your guests. A few quick tips today and a little bit of work will make your home a haven for over night guests.

Spring clean

It�s the season for a spring clean and what better incentive then having loved ones round. Collect your cleaning supplies and blast the guest room. Start from the top and work your way down. Dust all surfaces, pictures and decorations. Hoover or sweep the floors, including under the bed, and if it�s wood or laminate give the floor a good mop and dry. Don�t forget to clean baseboards, light switches and doors; you�d be surprised how dirty these get as they aren�t often cleaned. Make sure to keep your windows open while cleaning to let in some fresh air and rid the room of dust.

Change the linen

Nothing feels better after a long journey then falling into a nice clean bed with crisp linen and soft pillows. Use your best bed linen and make sure they are cleaned properly and ironed as well. This may seem like a lot of fuss if you don�t normally iron your bedding but it will make your guests feel extra special and give the room a more finished look. Add some pretty scatter pillows and a thick blanket at the end of the bed so there is an extra layer for those who like to be a little warmer in bed.

Set The Mood

As it�s spring, it�s the perfect time to bring some flowers or plants into the home. Having a bit of greenery can really set off a room and if you use fresh cut flowers your visitors will feel extra special once again as you�ve gone to so much effort. Make sure the room smells gorgeous as well with scented candles or a reed diffuser. We love the range from Neom. Always have a bedside lamp for reading and ease of sleep.

The Little Extras

Giving your guests little extras in their room can make them feel at ease and give their stay the feel of a hotel experience. Bare minimum; make sure to lay out clean towels, a water carafe and glasses, a few favourite books and your WIFI password. You can of course go the whole hog and make a guest room bar cart, like on A Beautiful Mess. Mini toiletries, snacks, fruit, bottle water and soft drinks, plus all the essentials we mentioned. This may seem excessive but this really would give your guest room the wow factor.

If you get your guest room in order this week you will have all weekend to enjoy your time with your friends and family. Remember to relax and enjoy your weekend. Your guests love it.
