While most hotels have mastered the art of creating the perfect hosting retreat, have you ever stayed at a hotel which did not accommodate your needs? There are a couple of amenities that are essential in order to keep you comfortable during your stay. Guestrooms are like hotel rooms, and they can be designed like them. Here is everything you need to consider when creating your guest room.
Everything You Need in Your Guest Room:
Hotels invest in your comfort and it is important to do the same for your guests. Comfy throw blankets and pillows are necessary for creating a dream escape. We do not recommend adding blankets that you never use in your guest bedroom because how someone sleeps will be key to how they see their entire stay. Make sure you keep your guest sheets clean and provide extra pillows and blankets when needed. Everyone has different comfort zones with temperature; therefore, providing extra blankets is never a bad idea.
- Nightstands and a Place for Clothes
You are going to want to have nightstands on either side of the bed, if possible. Nightstands are perfect for your guest to set their cell phones and other belongings on before bed. Also, having an empty dresser or closet can be important. Depending on how long your guest is staying; they are going to want to unpack their clothes. Be sure to provide hangers and a place to hang their jackets or purses when they enter the room.
- Outlets and Electronics
Consider where all outlets are located prior to setting up the room. Try to allow lamps to sit on the nightstands so that your company can read at night. You also need to make outlets easily accessible to plug in cell phone chargers and other electronics that your guest may have. A clock is a must for your guestroom. You may want to get an alarm clock for guest to be able to set for their convenience.
- Tissues and Wastebin
Tissues should be easy to find and access in your guestroom. You will want to make sure you keep them stocked before your guest arrives. Also, have an easy to find wastebin in the room so your guest can throw away their tissues or any other waste they may have.
- Toiletries and Towels
Depending on your home’s layout, you may have a bathroom for them to use. Once they arrive, show them where they can find the bathroom. Also, you may want to provide fresh towels and all needed toiletries. Make sure you have toilet paper, shampoo, conditioner, and soap for your guest. You should also provide a face towel and even a blow dryer if possible. Lastly, we recommend having a full-size mirror in your guest room for them to check themselves before they leave.
Creating your guest room can be a fun task. Keep in mind everything you use daily and how your guest room accommodates for this. Provide clean sheets, towels, and empty waste bins before your guest arrives. Providing a comfortable stay for your friends and family is a key element to hosting and will keep your guest happy.
