Creating a Cozy Guest Room Retreat

There are several elements that come together to create a welcoming retreat for your out of town guests. It is important to survey your space before choosing furniture so as not to overcrowd the room. If it is a small space, a futon, sofa bed, day bed or trundle may be more appropriate but if space is not an issue, a queen sized bed with a quality mattress is a good choice. Two nightstands with bedside lighting provides a space for your guests to charge their phones, read and relax without having to get up to turn off the lights. If space allows, a small seating area such as a bench or upholstered chair will give your guests a place to put on their shoes or unwind with a magazine. A chest of drawers, hooks on the wall and or hanging space in the closet enables them to unpack and feel a bit more at home.

Luxury linens, 200 or more thread count sheets, and fluffy pillows and extra blankets are essential. Spraying your sheets with a soothing linen spray will add to the tranquil atmosphere. The bathroom should be stocked with plush towels in all sizes along with travel sized toiletries and a cozy robe and slippers. Some other finishing touches to create a cozy guest room are bottled water, fresh flowers and a printed card with your WiFi password. Following these guidelines and tips will help you to create a guest room retreat with all of the comforts of home.
