Does your guest bedroom feel like a resort spa?
If not, with these simple guest bedroom accessories additions, you can transform your guest bedroom from blah to 5-star resort hotel or spa!
If you have guests coming to visit with you shortly, you may want to update or accessorize your guest bedroom before they arrive. Here are some easy bedroom accessory ideas you can add to your guest bedroom to make your guests’ stay comfortable, welcoming and as pleasurable as possible.
Some of the easy accessory additions you can make to your guest bedroom are: bath linens, bathrobes, toiletries, books and magazines, candles, flowers, night stand table lamps, an area rug, new pillows and perhaps a new accent reading chair.
Add some Bathrobes
Depending on how long your guests are staying, they will most likely be using your bathroom or spare bathroom for showering. Why not provide them with some nice bath robes for when they exit the shower?
Your guests will surely be impressed with this added touch to your guest bedroom. Instead of simply wrapping themselves in a towel, they can comfortably exit the shower in comfort. It also means that they don’t have to pack a bulky bathrobe with them while traveling to your home.
Add some Slippers
Along the line of providing your guests with some bathrobes, why not add some cozy slippers for their personal use too. If you buy some more luxurious slippers, you can allow them to take them home with them as a guest gift.
For a very inexpensive option, you can grab some simple spa-like slippers at a discount store. You can then discard them once your guests have left.
Add some luxurious bath towels and sheets
Of course you will be providing your guests with shower towels. However, you can up the ante by buying some new luxurious bath towels or bath sheets.
Keep them just for your guest room. That way, they will be infrequently used and stay fresh and new a long, long time.
Display your new guest towels in or on a decorative basket – just like they would do in a fancy boutique hotel.
Add a Basket of Bath and Spa Toiletries
When you stay at a 5-star resort, you are always provided with the necessary, high quality toiletries. Why not purchase a few high end toiletries – even if they are sample sizes – and display them beautifully in a decorative basket.
Some toiletries to consider are toothbrushes, soap, shampoo and conditioner, hand lotion, hand towels, face clothes and maybe even a few chocolates – for good measure.
No need for your guests to carry extra weight with them on their travels to get to your home. Or, if they happen to have forgotten to bring their toothbrush or shampoo – no worries. What a stress reliever!
Add a Reading Chair – and Ottoman
If you have guests who often stay for an extended period of time, you should consider adding an accent reading chair to your guest bedroom.
Even if they do not stay long, most guests will enjoy some quiet and private time in a comfortable chair – with ottoman, if you can.
Obviously this is a larger budget purchase but it will last a long time with little use in a guest bedroom.
It does not need to be a large guest room or area to be able to install an accent chair and table into the space. This room found a small corner space perfect for a small decorative armchair and side table.
Versions of this chevron print armchair are available – including in a grey and white color combination. As well, for even smaller spaces, to take up less room, you can opt for the slipper chair version of this accent armchair.
Either way, your guests will have a seating are for either dressing, reading, watching TV or just relaxing.
Add Night Table Lamps
If you are like many people, your guest bedroom may not be fully furnished or accessorized. That may just depend on how many guests you receive each year and how often, of course.
So, you may not have the best lighting. After all, most guests don’t actually spend that much time in the room. They are busy being guests and socializing with you and others.
Add some new night table lamps to give them the added light required if they want to read a book or magazine before going to sleep. Not only will these new table lamps be a nice addition for your guests, your guest bedroom will be that much closer to being a complete room.
Add some Books, Magazines or Puzzle Books
How well do you know your guests? If they are family members, you probably have a good sense of their hobbies and interests. Choose a few books and / or magazines which match those interests.
For those guests whom you don’t know well, make sure to mix up the topics and titles of the books and magazines you provide – so that everyone is happy.
If you know you have a crossword or puzzle fan, add some puzzle books. Just be sure you supply a pen too!
Who doesn’t like candles? They offer both a mood and so often a scent too – only adding to the mood. Add some lavender candles for those guests who you know like to relax. Perhaps after a long trip to get to your home, this may be just what your guests need.
For a holiday mood, add some cinnamon scented candles to your guest room. You could also consider some holiday decorative candles without any scent. Any red, gold or silver candle will be entirely appropriate for your Christmas guest room. Add some blue and white candles for your special Hanukkah holiday guests.
Be sure you have a safe base for your candles so that you will have to safety worries. Also, make sure you add a small lighter or matches (and place to put the extinguished matches) on the night stand, dresser or desk. And don’t forget to leave a candle snuffer close by to ensure the candles are snuffed properly and safely.
For that very special guest at your home, do the right thing and go get some freshly cut flowers to add to the guest room.
They will instantly feel special and welcome and know that you are very happy to have them visit.
If you add some real fresh flowers, you will, of course, need a decorative vase. Otherwise, you could incorporate some dried flowers which will require some kind of flower pot or decorative container.
Even a few fresh flowers can add a touch of, “We are so happy to have you in our home as a guest. Enjoy your stay!”
With the help of a simple glass mason jar and a fresh bouquet of flowers, you can add that special touch to your guest bedroom.
If fresh flowers are not possible, feel free to add some dried flowers or twigs in a decorative vase.
Easy to access and long lasting, dried flowers are a great option for a homey atmosphere in your guest bedroom.
Add an Area Rug
In any room, an area rug instantly adds warmth – both in look and feel. Because guest bedrooms are intended to feel warm and welcoming, adding an area rug is an obvious accessory addition to this room.
Choose an area rug size appropriate for both the room size and your budget. Generally, larger is better when it comes to area rugs. However, even an area rug runner can be enough to add that warm feeling when your guests step out of the bed on those cool mornings.
If you don’t have the budget for a large square or rectangular shaped area rug, add an area rug runner to place just beside the bed.
If you opt for a carpet runner to place beside or at the end of the bed, you can choose one which you may want to use in other places of your home – when you don’t have guests.
Make the most of your interior decorating buying power – that is my motto – or at least one of them!
Add more Pillows
As some may say, you can never have enough pillows on your bed. I agree!
We can talk about sleeping pillows or decorative pillows – and you should certainly have both.
While the decorative throw pillows add style, comfort does come first. So be sure you have some new comfortable bed pillows for your guests.
While the bed pillows are of utmost importance for the comfort of your guests, adding some decorative throw pillows can also add to the ambiance and style of the room.
If you do opt for a lot of extra decorative throw pillows, be sure you provide a space for your guests to put them when they go to bed. You want to avoid that uncomfortable feeling when guests have to decide where to put those extra pillows. You can be sure they do not want to put them on the floor.
A small bench or ottoman at the end of the bed or a large decorative basket can be the cure for the throw pillow temporary storage woes.
Add an Extra Blanket or Throw
While it is assumed that you will have appropriate bedding – duvets or comforters – on your guest bed, you may have that one guest who is always cold. Add an extra blanket or throw across the end of the bed to be sure that all your guests are comfortable when they sleep.
With a cotton knit blanket, your extra blanket can be both practical and decorative.
If you live in a cooler area or in the mountains, you may want a thicker throw blanket for your guest bedroom. Not only are they adorable, they are ultra cozy.
Add a Small Dresser or Clothing Rack
Depending on the length of stay of your guests, they may want to put their clothing in a drawer or hang them up. After all, who wants a wrinkled wardrobe.
Some easy accessories you can add to your guest bedroom to solve this wrinkled-clothing issue are either a small chest or dresser or a clothing rack. Both options will take up little space, be very practical and also be decorative.
If you do add a clothes rack to your guest room, don’t forget to add some very nice hangers. Some very nice hangers = some new matching wooden hangers. You won’t require many hangers so, the extra cost of wooden hangers should not be an issue.
