7 Tips for a More Welcoming Guest Room
1. Turn the wifi password into art.
Let's face it, everyone travels with electronics these days and chances are your guests will need the wifi password. Use water colors or even just craft paint to paint the wifi password on a small canvas which can then be displayed on a wall or on a night stand.
2. Supply some snacks.
Most guests aren't comfortable going into the kitchen for a late night snack. Instead, leave a basket of easy to eat snacks in their room. Granola bars, dried fruit, wrapped chocolates, and other easy snacks will hit the spot when the late night munchies occur. Bottled water is also a nice touch!
3. Present a basket of towels.
Guests may not feel comfortable combing through your linen closet for towels, so why not leave them a basket of fresh towels to enjoy? Roll up towels nicely and tie them secure with a ribbon for a fresh and fancy look they are sure to love. In the basket you can also include throw blankets for guests to use in case they get chilly during their stay.
4. Use soft lighting.
The choice of lighting you use can really add to the ambiance in a room. Use low wattage, soft light bulbs and plenty of bedside lamps instead of harsh overhead lighting. The option of several lamps will allow guests to add or take away light to fit their needs. Be sure there is a nightlight in the room as well.
5. Appeal to the senses.
A plug in or wax burner with a calming, natural scent can put guests at ease. You can also include a room spray and linen spray for the guests to use if they wish, as well as sachets to choose from to use in closets or drawers. Make sure scents are soft and natural and not overpowering.
6. Include a welcome note.
Even if you welcome your guests yourself, be sure to include welcome note on the bed or night stand telling them how happy you are they are there. You can also include a list of fun things to do in the area, and any notes about the house you think they should know.
7. Include fresh flowers.
Fresh flowers are sure to make any guest feel special. Place an arrangement next to the bed or on a dresser. It also goes well with the welcome note mentioned above. Choose flowers that are not overpowering in scent, and invite your guests to take them with them when they leave.
Getting your guest room ready for company requires just a little attention to detail. Give these tips a try and your guests are sure to feel welcomed.
