We Answer Wednesday - How to create a welcoming guest room

"Christmas break is coming soon and we have out of town guests staying with us for a few days, how can we make them feel at home when staying with us?"

Hosting out of town guests is a part of the holidays and you definitely want your guests to feel comfortable.  When it comes to hosting house guests you really want to think of the details - it really is the small things that make the difference!

It's always nice to have a guest room that looks and feels like a bedroom - you really want your house guests to feel like they are welcome and a part of your home.  A cohesive looking bedroom is always a welcoming touch.  We always recommend decorating a guest bedroom in a soothing and calming theme and in neutral colour tones.

 love the different patterns with similar colors:

These elements are musts when having guests stay over for a few days:

1. Fresh bedding and an extra blanket and pillows
2. Night stand with lamp and alarm clock
3. Trash bin
5. WiFi password
6. Clean towels (a set for each guest)
7. Available outlet to charge phones, tablets etc...
8. Bottled water and snacks
9. Clothing hangers and space in the closet (and/or dresser)

Create a welcoming feeling by making a welcome basket for any of your guests! Fill it with their favorite things!:

It's always a great idea to stock up on some extra toiletries too - everyone always forgets something...

- toothbrush
- tooth paste
- dental floss
- ibuprofen
- hair dryer
- shampoo and conditioner
- q-tips
- hand lotion

Make a cute over sized throw that's perfect for staying cozy this Fall!:

Some little extras that add a little something special...

- fresh flowers or potted plant
- Spare reading materials (books or magazines)
- Notepad and pen

Be sure to tour your guests around the house and let them know where to find essentials like bathrooms, laundry, coffee and how to work the TV.
