Your loved one is coming to visit! What better way to show them that you appreciate their company than by turning your guest bathroom into a welcoming and relaxing retreat. Here are 5 quick tips for creating the ultimate guest bathroom that will make your loved one want to extend their stay!
Know Their Needs
Have a mom that can’t go two days without her hairdryer? Make sure that you touch base with your guest before their stay to see if Mom can squeeze old-faithful in her carry on, or if you need to go ahead and pull out your spare. Putting together a personalized list of your guest’s needs is the first step to creating the perfect home away from home. Not only does this ensure you’ll be properly prepared, but you’ll stress less knowing that your guest will have exactly what they need for a comfortable stay.
Freshen it Up
Plush linens, squeaky clean floors, and a refreshing aroma instantly transform your bathroom into a spa-inspired retreat! To create a blissful guest bathroom, you’ll want an atmosphere that is open, airy, and appealing to the senses. Make sure that your sinks and showers are sparkling and spotless, and pull out your best linens too. Don’t forget a refreshing fragrance! Greeting your guest with a coastal scent invigorates their mood and helps them unwind after a taxing road trip or plane ride.
Greet Them with Goodies
What could make a guest feel more appreciated than greeting them with a bag full of goodies that they can’t live without! From toothpaste to contact solution, provide guests with a gift basket of essential toiletries just in case they left something at home! Also, make sure to include water bottles, a good read or two, and a few of their favorite sweets. Having a gift basket ready gives your guests a fun, personalized greeting, but it also shows that you’ve been looking forward to their visit too.
Have Storage Room to Spare
You’ll become the hostess with the mostess by giving your guest ample space to unpack their suitcase! Because most guest rooms are not often in use, it’s easy to let them become overrun with our unwanted clutter. Keep your guest from feeling like they’re intruding on your space, clear the clutter out of the guest bathroom before they arrive. Having counter space, drawers, and towel hooks ready for your guests to use will make them feel welcomed and right at home!
Restock with Care
Having extra towels and toilet paper on hand is always a good idea! However, your guest may feel awkward having to rummage around your closets and drawers to look for your back stock. Keep your extra linens and toilet paper in a place where your guests can easily find them. One tip is to turn your extra supplies into a creative decorative display! Think about adding a basket full of plush washcloths, or a stylish storage tower stocked with the essentials. Keep a hamper handy too, so guests have a place to put away their dirty towels.
