Guest Room Ideas

Make guests feel at home by adding little luxuries and thoughtful extras to your guest bedroom.

Being a good host requires some essentials. Avoid a last minute scramble by keeping full-time guest supplies on hand, such as toiletries, towels, and bedding. Store them in designated spots when they're not in use, rather than mingled with your everyday items. When the doorbell rings, you¿ll be relaxed and ready for your guests, not hunting for the extra pillows.

Think like a four-star hotel and anticipate your guests' every need. Stock a dresser drawer with necessities and fun extras that will make them feel pampered.

Label the drawer with a hangtag so overnighters know they can help themselves. Use a drawer organizer to bring order to a jumble of small items

Shop your drugstore's travel aisle or online (try minimus.biz) for itty-bitty versions of favorite toiletries.

Store washcloths and hand towels here, too, with a different color for each guest to avoid bathroom mix-ups. Provide a one-time-use camera so spent batteries or full memory cards don¿t spoil the fun. (Afterwards, recycle the camera at a local photo print shop.)

Treat your guests' to their own minibar. Fill a basket with chocolate bars, bags of nuts or dried fruit, and other packaged treats for late-night snackers.

On top of the bedside table, include a tray of niceties: an alarm clock, novels and guidebooks, and a carafe of water. (If guests sleep on the sofa, park the tray on the coffee table at bedtime, then whisk it away come morning.)

Get wet towels up off the floor with a handy towel rack that fits over the door. When the guests leave, store it under the bed.

Keep an extra sheet set and blanket under the bed so guests can help themselves if needed. A lidded or zippered box keeps linens fresh and dust-free. Tuck in a lavender sachet; it'll scent the sheets and also repels moths.

Give guests a spot to hang clothes without having to rearrange a closet. Hang an over-the-door hook and stock it with several slim hangers plus a lightweight robe.
