How To Design and Prepare Your Guest Room
When you have a guest staying in your home, their space should be inviting and comfortable. As the host, your goal is to create a guest room that is both practical and livable.
The room’s color palette sets the ambiance and energy for your guest. Use neutral shades for the walls; warm or cool colors that are tasteful and inviting. This applies for your bedding, as well. Khaki, grey or taupe are all pleasing options. Of course, you can never go wrong with classic white.
You’ll want to add a “pop” of color to the room. For this, use pillows or other accent pieces; such as a vase, mirror or picture frames.
A few extras to include for your special guest:
- Provide fresh flowers, but be sensitive to any allergies.
- Leave reading materials, an alarm clock, and reading lights.
- Don’t forget to leave instructions and passwords so they can connect to your WIFI.
- Provide extra bathroom amenities; hairdryer, extra towels, tissues, soaps and shampoos.
The ornament of a house is the guests who frequent it.
