How to Prepare A Cozy Guest Bedroom
One of the necessary preparations of having a beloved one to stay is making the guest room. If the designated place where the guest will be staying is a spare room that’s not used a great deal, it is very practically urged to spend one night at that place yourself to be sure it is not freezing cold or practically uninhabitable. Rooms that are left alone uninhabited or vacant for quite some time may quickly become stale or damp, with a musty odor, or worse, develop strange sounds you may not be ordinarily aware of. Some hosts even lend their own cozy bedroom, but if this isn’t necessary, do see to it that you have made the guest room as welcoming and as comfortable as possible. During the cold season, guarantee that the bed will be adequately warm – an electric blanket or a hot-water bag in a soft cover is a genuine treat.
Provide additional pillows too plus some cozy throws or covers, which could also make the bed appear more welcoming. If lady friends are coming, it’s fun to place some gorgeous treats in the room. Light a scented oil diffuser or a scented candle or in a relaxing neutral aroma such as peppermint or eucalyptus to comfort the tired nerves of the guest, particularly if they arrived from a long travel. Place a cozy terry cloth robe for your guest to use – travelers ordinarily don’t bring robes since it’s too bulky to pack. These preparation matters will make the room feel more inhabited, not aseptic and frigid like an infirmary room or a morgue.
A welcoming home does not necessarily have to be glamorously pretentious. Make the best of what you have. What’s important is that the guest feels welcome in a friendly accommodating atmosphere, which will make his or her stay an unforgettable one.
