8. Include Soft Lighting

Soft lighting creates a warm and inviting atmosphere in your guest bedroom. Consider using bedside lamps with warm-toned bulbs, or even fairy lights to add a touch of whimsy and charm.

9. Provide Storage Space

Ensure your guests have ample storage space for their belongings. Include a wardrobe or chest of drawers, as well as hooks or hangers for coats and bags. Providing a luggage rack or bench is another thoughtful addition that allows guests to unpack with ease.

10. Add Personal Touches

Incorporate personal touches into your guest bedroom to make it feel more welcoming. Consider displaying artwork, photographs, or decorative items that reflect your personal style or the local area. Adding a vase of fresh flowers or a potted plant can also bring life and colour to the space.

11. Keep it Clean and Uncluttered

Maintain a clean and uncluttered guest bedroom to ensure your visitors feel comfortable and relaxed. Regularly launder your bedding, following our guide on how often to wash and replace bedding. Additionally, make sure to vacuum, dust, and refresh the room between visits.

Don't forget to pay attention to the guest bathroom. Stock it with high-quality towels like Sheridan's Luxury Egyptian Cotton Bath Towel. Provide toiletries such as soap, shampoo, and conditioner, as well as a few extra items like cotton balls, toothpaste, and a disposable razor, just in case your guests forget to bring their own.
