You would be surprised how impactful small touches can be when you are designing your guest room. Set out a printed card with your Wi-Fi password, bring in fresh flowers and be sure to have a reading light near the bed. A bench, either wood or fabric-covered, in the space is a welcome spot for suitcases and makes getting ready much easier for your visitors. Full-length mirrors are always appreciated. Be sure that the closets are empty, except for the extra blankets and pillows, of course.
Do your visitors often travel with their dogs? Consider putting out a doggie-bed and some snacks so that they feel welcome. Speaking of snacks, the luxury of having some healthy or tantalizing bites close at hand cannot be underestimated. Martha Stewart Living also suggests that you “[fill] a carafe with water so guests don’t have to trek to the kitchen if they’re feeling parched.” After a long day of travel, your guests will love you for it.
