Even after the holidays are over and the new year has begun, family and friends often find their way to our doorsteps. There's something about the cool winter months that make visits with loved ones seem extra special. Whether you're shoveling snow, sporting a rain coat, or enjoying a mild winter somewhere, you're sure to keep your guests cozy this winter by following these tips.
Layers such as throw blankets and extra pillows give your guest room a welcoming appeal. Layers can add that little extra something. It's appealing to the eyes, it adds texture and creates a warm environment that will have friends and family wanting to come back for future visits. Just be sure to provide a large basket or extra closet space for your guests to store any unwanted layers.
Don't underestimate the power of a quality mattress and decent bedding. Sometimes guest rooms end up with the old mattress, the flat pillows, or the worn sheets. A new mattress may not be within your budget, but your guests deserve soft, luxurious bedding at the very least. Nice sheets don't have to break the bank, either. PeachSkinSheets are an affordable option that will have your guests sleeping peacefully all night long. These sheets are made from breathable microfiber that's hypoallergenic and ultra soft.
Space heaters are great for keeping guests comfortable. They can control the thermostat to their liking without overheating the entire house. There are many affordable, efficient options for space heaters today. In fact, the Department of Energy recommends space heaters as an easy and reliable way to heat a single room.
Heated towel racks offer another mode of heat using similar technology. Warm towels may seem like an unnecessary luxury, but your guests will surely thank you for being so thoughtful. Heated towel racks add a supplemental heat source and provide a warm, fluffy towel for your guests to dry off with.
Who doesn't enjoy coming home to a pleasant smelling room? You can keep your guests' space smelling great by placing an oil diffuser, wall plug-in, or scented candle in the guest room.
A diffuser will disperse aromatherapy oils throughout the room, giving it an instant fragrance boost.
Candles are another favorite, with endless options for seasonal scents. Spices, such as cinnamon and nutmeg, are a popular choice for both fall and winter. Some people prefer a more earthy scent such as Balsam, or other outdoorsy/pine scents. You may also want to keep a neutralizer on hand to eliminate any room odors. Your guest can use it as-needed.
Your guests will feel cozy and refreshed in a room that caters to their comfort. Simple ways of showing you care will go a long way in keeping your house guests happy and content. Plenty of warmth, fresh scents, and a cozy bed with luxurious bedding from PeachSkinSheets is sure to please even the most finicky of guests this winter and for winters to come.
