Welcoming Guest Room Ideas

The holidays are synonymous with visiting or visitors. As a guest, I am always taking mental notes of wonderfully welcoming guest room ideas so that I can return the favor someday in my home. To help jog my memory and help yours too, I’ve created a list of ideas and little extras to inspire your hosting now and throughout the year.

Hosting Guests in your Home

Of course, making your visitors feel welcome is not about “things”, it’s about giving of yourself and sharing your home. So, no matter the size, if you have a bit of space; floor, air mattress, couch, or guest room, you can always make them feel comfortable and honored. Use whatever comes easy for you; your charm, your cooking skills, or your creativity, to make it extra special.

The Sleeping Guest Room

Think about where your guests will sleep and what they may need as they arrive and unpack, go to sleep or wake up the next day. It’s always a great idea to stay in your own guest room! It will give you a whole new perspective on what is missing or not working.

Below are ideas from the basic to the extravagant. Have fun and enjoy the preparation to make your company comfortable.

Guest Amenities

Pull items from around your home to add special touches. You probably already have items that will work perfectly. Check your kitchen, in your closets or behind your cupboard doors, for trays, baskets, special dishes, candles, vases, linens, pillows, or extra toiletries. Then, run to the store if you want to take it to the next level with flowers, drinks or snacks, etc.
