5 Easy Ways to Make Guest Rooms Feel Fancy
The holidays are already right around the corner, which means those of us who are having guests into town are starting to wonder how we might spruce up the spare bedroom without spending a fortune.</br></br>Fortunately, there are a lot of little tweaks you can make in the bedroom that, taken together, can create a whole new look. Here are five of the best, easiest ways to give your guests the luxury treatment that reminds them of their favorite vacation spots.</br></br><strong>1. New Linens / Mattress </strong></br></br>New bedding is a quick and affordable way to make your guest room feel like a hotel. There’s something familiar about slipping into a bed with brand-new sheets – they just feel different, and we’ve been conditioned to enjoy it.</br></br><strong>2. Clean Towels</strong></br></br>Offering a stack of new towels at the foot of the bed is a classy move that also gives people a hotel vibe. Kick in a paper-wrapped bar of soap if you want to take it to the next level.</br></br><strong>3. Alarm Clock</strong></br></br>Sure, we're now all in the habit of using our cellphones to wake us up, but it’s always nice to have the option. Plus, there’s something very satisfying about hitting a true SNOOZE button.</br></br><strong>4. Robes</strong></br></br>Robes take the hotel feel beyond what most people have come to expect from hotels these days. Just make sure you skew larger rather than smaller on size and always stock two, in the event you host a couple in the same room.</br></br><strong>5. TV / Wi-Fi Connection</strong></br></br>It’s not that your guests are actually going to watch TV in there, but sometimes people like falling asleep to the television. And, sometimes people need to get a little work done, even when they’re on vacation.</br></br>Hook up your guest room with a TV and an Internet connection and your guests will feel like they’ve got everything they need and then some.
