Whether the in-laws are coming for the holidays or your best friend is crashing for the weekend, we've got helpful tricks for creating the ultimate space for your guests. Because the blow-up mattress just isn't going to cut it this year.
storage space Living out of a suitcase is far from fun. Designate a little shelf space for unpacking. Closets are optimal but a set of drawers will do, too. An extra side chair is perfect for the random odds and ends accumulated throughout the trip.
clean sheets and peaceful decor We know how tempting it can be to unleash your creative side when it comes to designing a spare room. Stick to the mantra of "decorating for them" and opt for a neutral color palette that complements the lush bedding.
a welcome kit They are welcome (and most of the time invited). Treat them to a care package that's filled with essentials that create a tranquil. spa-like ambience like candles, a set of subtly fragrant soaps, lotions, and sprays.
bedside table A nightstand complete with a few essentials can help make your guest feel right at home. Stick with the basics, such as a lamp, alarm clock and a carafe to avoid late-night trips to the kitchen.
