Preparing Our Guest Room For Comfort


Now that Christmas has been packed away and I am on a mission to declutter once again and continue making our new house a home, its time to prepare our guest room for what it was meant for. Since we moved in, that bedroom was the room we stored things in, then it became the Christmas present wrapping room under lock and key so children couldn’t get in and snoop around. Now that all the hustle and bustle of the holiday season is behind us, I truly can’t wait to get this room set up and ready for our first out-of-town guests. 

I want to make this room special. I really want guests who come stay with us to feel welcome. I want them to feel like they have their own little retreat away from my loud obnoxious family. 😉 Thankfully in this home, the guest room is not shared with the office. In our last home, we had kind of a multi-purpose room that was a media room, office, and guest room all in one. It wasn’t a really comforting private place for guests to retreat to. But here, that will be totally different!

We are so thankful that our guest room has a neighboring bathroom that will pretty much be theirs when they visit. I want this bed and bathroom to embody comfort! We are currently waiting till February to order the legs that go with the sleep number bed we will have in there. Once we can buy the legs for the frame, we can begin setting the room up and shortly after that we’ll be able to have guests visit.  

Trident, one of the world’s largest fully integrated home textiles manufacturers, and biggest terry towel manufacturing facility supplies Target with its wonderful terry bathrobes and towels. Trident offered to help supply my guest room with a bathrobe! Right now you can buy this wonderfully soft 100% cotton Women’s Terry Robe by Gilligan & O’Malley™ , available in millstone gray or white at Target for $39.99. This robe has a large front tie and two front pockets to keep things like tissue, chapstick or lotion in them…or maybe an iPod or your phone as you drift off to sleep.

One of the things I love about this robe is what is written on the inside below the tag. “Don’t quit your daydream”. 


I want my guests to be able to relax from a long trip and take a bath or shower and feel comfortable and a bit pampered. This robe is soft and one size fits most and will be a wonderful compliment to our guest room. Along with this bathrobe, I’ve also gathered lots of lotions, shampoos and other beauty or hotel samples for this bathroom that my guests can use anytime they stay with us. I plan on setting up a basket of toiletries available for use when you first step into the bathroom. I really would like it to feel kind of like a hotel stay, but more personable since you are with friends or family. Our guest room will have its own wi-fi connection, TV, mini coffee maker, and possibly a mini fridge so that there can be some comfortable separation with the right amount of amenities. 

Can you tell I’m missing people? I am! So, of course, I want to incentivize a reason to have people stay with us. As soon as this room is ready, there will be a blog post reveal right here toward the end of February! 

Do you have a guest room? What things have you done to make your guest room welcoming?

  1. About half of my husband’s siblings live out of state and we host them here almost all the time when they come back home. I love making sure my guests are comfortable and happy staying here.

  2. Our home is always open to visiting family and friends and we often use the den as a guest bedroom. It has a pullout couch, a recliner, tv, lots of space and a private entrance. I try to add a few touches to keep the room welcoming and warm for all who enter.

  3. These are some great ideas! I wish we had a guest room but alas, all our rooms our occupied. Maybe if the kids move out we can switch one into a guest room. For now, company gets the couch!

  4. Wow I would feel like a welcome guest at your house. These are some great ideas and I think I will take on a few for my guests.

  5. This is really great, what a neat way to ensure that the guest room is built for comfort for guests. I will have to try to do some of these things, I think they are also great ideas to make your master bedroom a comforting place 😉

  6. Oooh…The robe looks so comfy and I love only wearing 100% cotton on my body. I love your welcome basket of goodies. You’ve added everything guests could ever want and need to feel at home. I’ll be your house guest any time! Nancy L

  7. We don’t have a guest room, but we do have a spare room which is used by my children as an activity center or a place to just hang out with friends. If there would be guests sleeping over, then we’d take out the air mattress. I wish we had a dedicated guest room though.

  8. You, my dear, are the sweetest hostess! You’ve thought of everything to make guests feel welcome, as well as pampered. The robes remind me of those you get when staying in a fancy hotel and your basket of toiletries means they’ll never be without. So nicely done. x

  9. I have an empty room in my home that I was planning to use as a craft room, but now I am leaning towards incorporating your ideas and setting up a potential guest room.
