‘Tis the season to start hosting and prepping for the chaos that is family! We rounded up our essential products for the guest bedroom to carry you through this crazy holiday season (courtesy of Amazon, of course).
When it comes to preparing a guest bedroom for hosting, it’s important to think about what YOU would want and expect from a host (your guests will ideally want the same things). What’s great about hosting from your home versus a hotel is that the feeling of being at home already exists for your guests, it just comes down to the details of offering a quiet place to relax.
Scroll through this post to shop our must-have guest bedroom products! Be prepared that your guests might get SO comfortable they might not ever want to go home.
The golden rule of hosting guests at your home? Have your wifi password readily available! Write down your wifi password and leave it on the nightstand for your house guests. Many people travel with laptops and do work or check e-mail when away from home, so this detail is a must!
Clean and fresh towels are a must for hosting guests! We recommend white towels so you can bleach them, just like the sheets. Roll them up in a cute basket or fold them neatly on the bed for their arrival. Most people like to freshen up after a long journey.
Clear a space to put a luggage rack or provide a small table or bench to set down a suitcase. No one likes to have to stoop over to the floor to pull out a clean pair of socks, so having a designated area for their belongings is a hosting must.
Not only do mirrors open up a space, but having a mirror in the guest bedroom will give guests the ability to get dressed in their room without having to find a mirror elsewhere. This detail provides the ultimate privacy and makes guests feel right at home.
You know the feeling when you forget your charger at home and can’t find the courage to bother your host for an extra? We feel you. Having a wireless charging station readily accessible on bedside tables or dressers for your guests is a hosting must-have! Your guests will appreciate having those “just in case” items.
