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 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.

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!

Add Flowers

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.

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.

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.

Treat your guests to some new Down Inc Savannah Down Pillows. These bed pillows may cost a tad more but will last you a lifetime – especially with the limited use in your guest bedroom.

Stack your guest bed with proper bed pillows as well as various throw pillows. Such a whimsical look by the simple addition of some varied prints and textured decorative throw pillows.

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.

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.

It also looks great and not like a typical utilitarian laundry room clothes rack.

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.
