From family to friends, the holidays are all about gathering together and being with the people you love. That means you will want to make sure everyone’s accommodations are all squared away before they all start flocking to your home for the festivities. Get your guest room and mattress into shape with these tips that are sure to make your guests feel comfortable and at home.
1. Winter Cleaning
The first step to making your guest room inhabitable is making sure it hasn’t been used as a junk room for the past couple of months. Everybody has such a room in their house, but if you plan to have people sleeping in it, it’s best if you start finding a home for all your leftover things.
Once you’ve put those things in their rightful place, or just relocated them to another place your guests won’t see, you’ll want to actually get to the cleaning part. Wash the windows, dust the side tables, and vacuum or sweep and mop the floor. You’ll be surprised how much a little tidying up can really change a room around!
2. Mattress Priority
The mattress in your guest bedroom is the most important part of the entire room. It needs to be comfortable, clean, and presentable for your guest before they arrive.
We recommend testing out the bed for yourself first. Is it old? Does it hurt your back? Is it hard to get comfortable on? If you answered yes to any of these questions, it’s probably time for a new mattress and preferably before your family or friends come to stay with you. If you need to come up with a quick fix, using a foam pad could be a bandage for the time being, but you will eventually need to find a good mattress that won’t send your guests fleeing to the nearest hotel. Make sure to visit our store to find a Sealy mattress worthy of your guest bedroom today!
If your mattress is in good condition, switch out the current sheets, pillows, and blankets with clean ones and your guest bed will be all set for sleeping in!
3. Closet Space
Now that the room is sparkling and the mattress is feeling fresh, you’ll want to make sure your guests have space to put their belongings while they’re in your home. Check the guest bedroom closet for items that don’t belong, such as your extra dining room chairs or birthday wrapping paper, and be sure to fill it with things they may actually need, such as hangers for their clothes.
4. Luxury Suite
Treat your guests special by making their stay a little extra nice during the holidays. From lighting a cinnamon candle so their room smells delicious to placing warm slippers next to their bed so they’re comfy for the duration of their stay, there are numerous ways for you to go above and beyond for your guest. And if you want to get extra fancy, you could even put a bath robe in their closet. The possibilities are endless!
And while you’re making sure your guest bedroom is fit for royalty, don’t forget to check the comfort level of the mattress before your guests arrive. Stop by our store today to make sure your guests have a bed that will make them feel like they’re on a luxurious vacation.
It’s not always easy sleeping in an unfamiliar room, so it’s up to you to make it comfortable for your guests. As long as the guest room clean and the mattress feels like a dream, your guests should have a wonderful stay during the festivities!
