Setting up a guest bedroom

When my husband and I moved from the Fair Oaks Community in Glendale to La Canada, having a guest bedroom was a priority. As my parents had relocated to another state, the need for a warm and inviting space for them was necessary. When setting up a guest room, the key is to craft a comfortable and welcoming environment for your visitors. To assist you here are some helpful tips:

Comfortable Bedding:
Invest in a comfortable mattress and quality bedding. Ensure the bed has clean sheets and provide extra blankets or pillows for different preferences.

Setting up a guest bedroom

Storage Space:
Provide ample storage space, such as a dresser or closet with hangers, for your guests to unpack and store their belongings.

Include bedside lamps for reading.

Window Treatments:
Install curtains or blinds that provide privacy and control over the amount of natural light entering the room.

A full-length mirror or at least a decent-sized mirror in the room is practical for your guests.

Extra Amenities:
Consider adding extra amenities like a small basket of toiletries, a phone charger, fresh towels, and a water carafe with glasses. You can also include an alarm clock, tissues, a notepad, and a pen.

Wi-Fi Information:
Display the Wi-Fi network name and password in an easily visible location.

Chair or Bench
There should be a chair or bench to use when putting on shoes.

Space for Work:
If space allows, provide a small desk or a designated area where guests can work or use their laptops.

Personal Touches:
Add some personal touches to make the space feel more inviting. This could include fresh flowers, artwork, or a few books for leisure reading.

Privacy Considerations:
If possible, choose a guest room that is somewhat separate from the main living areas to give your guests more privacy.

When setting up a guest bedroom it is helpful to provide clear instructions on how to use any electronics, appliances, or amenities in the room, and let your guests know where to find essentials like extra towels or blankets. Remember, the goal is to create a space that is comfortable and accommodating, allowing your guests to feel at home during their stay.
