The beauty of Indian families is they are big and spread out across our country and abroad and welcoming them to our homes is a joy. That’s why planning cosy and welcoming guest rooms not only becomes important but also a highly enjoyable experience. Here is a comprehensive guide on how you can plan your guestrooms by keeping all the essential items while making it comfortable.
Essentials for Guest Room
When you start planning your guest room, think in terms of covering essential items. Even though it won’t be like a five-star luxurious hotel, you can easily arrange what’s necessary while providing a quiet corner to relax for your guests.
Get the best bed as it is going to be the central and the most important part of the guest room. Also think of adding additional items like a choice of pillows, extra blankets, freshly ironed pillowcases. If cannot provide a bed, then a quality and comfortable mattress are important for your guests to feel comfortable.
Keep aside an additional set of fresh linens as they are a significant part of the guest room and they may require it. Your guests might want to change it without troubling you, so keep them handy in their guest rooms.
A small and not really fancy table will ensure all your guest suitcases and items are well kept. The useful table or even a chair is important to keep important stuff on them.
Sitting on the bed is not always great, there might be some people who are also not comfortable and that’s why to keep a comfy chair along with a table and lamp close by is recommended.
It’s important that the rooms are airy with ample lighting arrangements. If you have windows then it’s great, if not then a good reading light near a chair or bed will be helpful for your guests.
Wall clock, alarm clock, spacious cupboard, paper, pens or pencils, scissors, tape, tissue, and a hair dryer along with bathroom essentials complete with soap and shampoo will go a long way to ensure your guest have a comfortable and a good time.
If you can have a mini fridge it can be very helpful to keep food items. Fresh fruit, snacks and bottle of water ensures they can enjoy their evening snack without visiting the kitchen.
