We love opening up our homes to loved ones near and far, but creating a room that’s inviting and comfortable requires a quick visit to the hosting prerequisite list. From cozy accessories to bathroom basics, here’s how to make your extra room feel like your guest’s own home away from home.
Keep it Calm & Clutter-Free
While we try to make our homes as clutter-free as can be, the guest room is where it really matters the most. Chances are likely that your extra bedroom is tight on space, which means every inch needs to be optimized for a fine-tuned stay. Start by outfitting the room with multi-functional pieces that make it easy to store luggage, extra throws
, and other overnight essentials. We love our Oak Day Bench
or the Upholstered Bench
for these purposes, calling upon our nesting baskets
for seamless storage. Feel like something’s missing? Add a few pillows to your bench of choice for the final touch of lived-in comfort.
