How to Create a Welcoming Guest Bedroom

To create a welcoming guest bedroom, there are a few key things you can do to make sure your guests feel comfortable and at home. Here are a few tips:

This holiday season, if you're hosting visitors, chances are you've been considering how to make everyone's time as enjoyable as possible. There are a few things you can do to make your guests feel at home and welcome, whether you have a designated spare room or are creating space elsewhere in your house. Here are a few things to take into account before inviting overnight visitors to your house.

Add Comfy Textiles

Start by choosing a comfortable bed with fresh linens and plenty of pillows. Your guests will appreciate a good night's sleep, so make sure the bed is inviting and invitingly comfortable. Extra blankets, throws, and cushions in your guest room not only provide texture for a cozier look, but they also serve a practical purpose. Even if you maintain a consistent temperature in your home, everyone has different tastes, so it's always helpful to have a spare blanket at the foot of the bed in case you need it, or, on the other hand, to be in a layered bed so you may remove one or two blankets as needed. Any bedding ensemble can benefit from the texture and dimension that crisp, clean sheets, puffy duvets, end-of-bed quilts, and plush throws and toss pillows all add.

Personal Touches 

Add some personal touches to the room, such as framed photos, plants or artwork, to make it feel more like a home. This will help your guests feel more at ease and make them feel more welcome. By putting a little greenery or a straightforward arrangement on the bedside table, you may give your room an instant sense of consideration. Use fake stems or plants instead if you rotate your guests throughout the season or if you don't have a green thumb so you have one less thing to worry about. Additionally, it's a fantastic way to change the mood of the room by adding a sense of color or seasonality.

Extra Storage Space

Provide plenty of storage space for your guests to unpack and store their belongings. This can be in the form of a dresser, a closet, or even just some empty drawers in the nightstand. If you don't have any extra drawers, you can make room for a slim, standing dresser, but if you don't, you can clear off the area for your visitors to utilize. Also, remember to provide one or two baskets for them to use to keep their possessions while they are visiting. In addition, if visitors are staying for a little longer than a weekend, place a larger, lidded basket in the room and inform them that they are welcome to store their soiled garments in there for later washing.


Make sure the room has good lighting, both natural and artificial. This will help your guests to see and navigate the space easily, and will make the room feel more inviting.


Consider providing some amenities for your guests, such as a mini-fridge, a kettle or coffee maker, and a selection of snacks and drinks. This will give your guests everything they need to feel comfortable during their stay.

Finally, make sure the room is clean and clutter-free. This will help your guests feel more relaxed and at ease in their temporary home.
