4 Easy Ways to Spruce Up Your Guest Room for the Holidays

 The holiday season is upon us, and family and friends will be visiting. A good host always wants their guests to feel comfortable and at home - here are four easy ways to spruce up your guest room for the holidays.

What to buy for a guest room

If you're setting up your guest room for the first time, you'll want to have the items in your space for guests. These essentials can be used in any guest room, whether it has its own dedicated space or if you're setting up your spare office with a roll-away bed.

  • A sign with the wifi code on it so they can easily log in 
  • A fresh set of towels - these waffle towels are great for guest rooms.

  • A basket with water bottles and snacks in it adds a special touch. 
  • A wastebasket in the bathroom or bedroom so they can throw away their snack wrappers. 
  • If you're setting up a mixed-use room as a guest bedroom (think office, basement), opt for the nicer inflatable mattresses on the stands so your guests don't have to sleep on the floor. 
  • Add fresh flowers or a pretty plant for your guests to enjoy. 

How to decorate a guest bedroom for Christmas

We love decorating for Christmas, and that also means the guest bedroom! You can go as holiday-crazy as you want, but these are four easy ways to decorate your guest room for the holidays.
  • Add a festive throw pillow, like our embroidered Pine Boughs pillow. This is the quickest, easiest way to spruce up your guest room for the holidays!

  • Add a tartan quilt like our Aberdeen Quilt. You can fold it at the foot of the bed on top of a white duvet if you're a minimalist, or cover the whole bed in it if you want a cabin cozy look.

  • Put some festive soap in the guest bathroom. This is another super easy, quick, and cost effective way to decorate for the holidays. 
  • Add a Christmas-y throw to the foot of the bed or on an armchair. Your guests may get chilly and might enjoy cozying up. 

How to go "extra" in your guest room over the holidays

If you really want to be the hostess with the mostest, you can go as luxurious as you want in your guest room this holiday season.

  • Add garland on the door and window casings, a wreath on the door, and (electric) candles in the windows to make your guests feel super festive.
