Calming Color Palette

The first step to creating a guest room is to choose a color palette that will make the space feel calm and relaxing. We suggest choosing neutral shades or soft colors, like blue, gray, and green. These colors are said to create a peaceful ambiance and sound sleep.

Extra Blankets & Pillows

It’s always a good idea to place extra pillows and blankets in the closet in case your guests need them. We also suggest mixing different sizes of pillows on your guest’s bed and styling them like how beds are styled in hotels.


Welcome Tray

One of the ideas we love is to greet your guests with a welcome tray stacked with snacks, WiFi password, flowers, candles, and books. Your guests will surely feel grateful!


Basket With All the Essentials

Aside from providing a welcome tray, it’s also best to provide a basket with all the essentials your guests might need, such as new towels, toothpaste, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, toothbrush, first aid kit, phone charger, and bottles of water. You can customize your basket according to your guest’s needs.
