Does Your Home Offer A Haven For Guests?

Are you one of those people who loves having guests over or are you one of those homeowners who dreads the day that guests will darken their doorstep?

Focus on creating a light space


There is nothing less welcoming than a dull and dreary space, that is why it is so important that your guest bedroom is a light and airy space, and somewhere that is welcoming for your guests. If you have a nice space for your guests to stay in, you will feel better about having people to come and stay. A room that is light and airy often tends to feel twice as large, making it seem like a more inviting space. To bring extra light into your guest bedroom, paint the walls in a light shade and place mirrors strategically around the room, to reflect light back into it.


Ensure your home smells fresh and clean


Does your home have a slight scent to it? The chances are that however your home smells, you will have grown accustomed to it and won’t notice it anymore. So it is important to make sure to keep the windows open as much as possible to let lots of fresh air in, and also to ensure that you have a few nice scents incorporated into the space. The best way to add nice smells to your home is to layer different scents using reed diffusers, wax melters, scented candles, and a scent machine for home. Just make sure that you use complimentary scents that work well together.


Keep it tidy and reduce clutter


There is nothing less inviting than a home that is messy or cluttered. So if your home lacks organization and has a lot of clutter within it, it could be a good idea to take the time to have a clear out and start becoming more of a minimalist. It might not be easy having a clear out, but once you are done, and your home starts to look tidier and smarter, you will feel much better for it and will be much happier to welcome guests.


If you want to ensure that your home offers a haven guests, make sure to take note of the tips and advice above, and implement them to help transform your home into more of a haven for your guests.

Sleeping In Luxury

Everyone loves the feeling of sinking into a sumptuous bed made up of Egyptian cotton bed sheets and the plumpest fluffiest pillows. Treat your guests to a super luxe hotel-style experience by investing in high-quality bedding and plush pillows. Choose neutral shades of soft light and dark gray to create an elegant room that will appeal to all. On the bedside cabinets leave a fresh bottle of water for each guest, favorite books and a couple of current magazines in case they want to read. Make sure that curtains or blinds have a black out feature so your guests are sure to get a sound night of sleep. And also be sure to invest in elegant bedside lamps and also a main light with a dimmer switch for added ambiance. Invest, as well, in an ornate full-length mirror so they can easily put on makeup and check out what they’re wearing before they leave the room!

The Little Extras

For cute luxury hotel appeal, fashion your towels how they do when you’re on holiday. This towel animal folding guide will teach you how to make those delightful swans that exotic hotels always lay on the bed. A sweet touch! Also be sure to include enough hangers in the wardrobe for your guests’ clothes. And add an extra fluffy bathrobe and slippers for each guest so they can lounge around in comfort. Also use a deep wicker basket to store extra pillows and blankets in case your visitors are feeling the chill. Invest in some tall vases and have fresh cut flowers ready for when your visitors arrive. This is one of the sure-fire ways to make the guest room look fresh and chic. For a true boutique hotel style feel, leave out a pretty tray stashed with a teapot, teabags and coffee so your guest can treat themselves whenever they want. Then all they need to do is holler to their host if they need fresh milk or extra hot water.

Plush Guest Bathroom

If you are lucky enough to have a guest bathroom, don’t forget to make this look super chic too. Have a bale of fresh fluffy white towels and flannels that your guests can use. And create a special travel pack which includes extras they may have forgotten. In here you can include toothpaste, a toothbrush, hand lotion and face wipes. Always make sure you are fully stocked with shower gel, bubble bath, and toilet roll too. Holding on to travel sizes you get from hotel stays is a great way of making your guest bathroom look like the ultimate swanky hotel.

And last but not least don’t forget to leave a spare set of keys on the bedside table for them. This way they’ll certainly feel like a luxury hotel guest. Hopefully, they’ll then make you breakfast in return for the board!
