THE 30-MINUTE GUEST ROOM PREP


Treat guests to a hotel-worthy stay with these traveler-friendly updates to a guest bedroom:

Clear a little bit of space in the closet.

Add night lights to hallways and guest bath.

Take inventory of spare pillows and blankets. If you have the storage space, you might as well err on the side of having too many linens. Ensure they’re clean and must-free.


Assume visitors will get thirsty and be less than comfortable getting up in the middle of the night in a strange home. Provide bottles of water.

An alarm clock keeps company from relying on their hosts to wake them up.


Anticipate particular needs or wants of your guests. Many guests these days travel with tablets or laptops. Have the password to your wi-fi connectivity readily available.

If your space room doubles as an office or kids’ room, de-clutter so that they don’t feel like they’re invading.

Extra touches go a long way:

-Put out a basket of toiletries and fresh towels

-Stock the room with magazine your guest(s) might enjoy

-Spruce up the room with a vase of flowers.

  1. Those are some great ideas. :) Really like the wi-fi code because that is probably one of the first things they want to know! lol

    1. Thanks, Dalayna! Our guests raved over the wi-fi picture - they said they probably could have found everything else they would have needed, just by looking in closets and cabinets, but the wi-fi code is the one thing they would have "bothered" me for. Not that it would've been a bother, but at least they didn't have needs left unmet.
