How To Prepare A Guest Bedroom

How To Prepare A Guest Bedroom

When we had the flood in our house last summer, the entire basement had to be torn out and completely redone.  It took six months for us to finally get it put back together, but the guest room is finally finished!    Today I’m going to share with you how to prepare a guest bedroom using my bedroom basement as an example.

Size Doesn’t Matter

The scale of our home is pretty small (nothing was supersized back in 1922), so our guest bedroom has just enough room for a bed, floor lamp, seat at the foot of the bed, and a small closet!  Even though it’s such a small space, we can still make our guests feel special when they stay with us.  It’s just a matter of paying attention to small details by planning ahead and anticipating what your house guest will need during their stay.  If you don’t have a guest bedroom, a lot of these touches can be incorporated into any space of the house.

Guest Room Touches

Pretty Flowers
A fresh arrangement of flowers is a welcoming touch that is pleasant to look at and smell.  Just make sure you know of any floral allergies your guests might have before they arrive.

Bedside table with Reading Material And Lamp
If you’ve got room for a bedside table, great!  A nice lamp and stack of reading material will be very much appreciated.


Not everyone likes to use their cell phone as an alarm, so a bedside clock can be useful.
If you’ve got a spacious guest bedroom, a comfy chair with an ottoman provides a quiet corner for your guest to have some downtime.

A desk supplied with pretty stationery, pens and other writing utensils, stamps, and local postcards are a nice touch.


Wifi Password
Leave a card with the Wifi password on it for your guests to be able to use the internet.

Carafe of fresh water
Leave a carafe of water or some water bottles in the room for your guests.

Extra blankets
Depending on what season it is, an extra blanket or throw is welcome in the cooler months.
