How to Get Your Guest Bedroom Ready for Christmas

The festive season is just around the corner, so it’s almost that time to transform your home into a warm and inviting haven for friends and family.

While the heart of the celebrations often revolves around the kitchen and the dining table, let’s not forget the importance of creating a cosy retreat for your guests.

Dust off the board games, fluff up the pillows, and get ready to spread the joy – we’re here to guide you through the essential steps to prepare your guest bedroom for hosting over the festive season. After all, there’s no better gift than a comfortable stay!

1. Spritz the space…

Start by decluttering and tidying your guest bedroom. Remove any unnecessary items to create a clean and inviting atmosphere. Arrange furniture for easy navigation.

Elevate their stay by placing fresh towels on the bed and setting out a selection of toiletries. Small touches like travel-sized shampoos, conditioners, and spare toothbrushes add a thoughtful touch, inviting your guests to relax and unwind.

This simple but impactful first step sets the stage for a holiday haven where your visitors can feel not only the warmth of the season, but also the genuine hospitality of your home.

2. Provide hanging space…

Dedicate a section of the wardrobe with hangers for your guests to hang their clothing. A few empty drawers or a storage basket can accommodate smaller items, keeping the room organised and functional.

Consider including a luggage rack for easy access to belongings and to save your guests from unnecessary bending and rummaging. If space permits, add a comfortable chair or a bench where they can place bags or sit while getting ready.

Anticipate your guests’ needs by offering a laundry hamper or basket, encouraging them to keep their space tidy throughout their stay. This thoughtful touch ensures that your guests can maintain a sense of order while enjoying the festivities.

3. Prepare the bed for their stay…

Consider giving your guests the VIP treatment by investing in new bedding to ensure a fresh and luxurious feeling. After all, their bed will be their sanctuary for the duration of their stay.

For an extra touch of holiday cheer, opt for bright and bold Christmas bedding. Festive patterns and colours can infuse the room with seasonal warmth, adding an extra layer of festive joy.

Drape an assortment of extra blankets or a sumptuous throw at the foot of the bed, allowing them to cocoon themselves in warmth and tailor their sleep experience to perfection.

4. Create an inviting festive atmosphere…

Elevate your guest retreat with enchanting details that capture the spirit of the season. Add a personal touch with a heartfelt welcome note or holiday card, setting the tone for a warm and memorable stay.

Introduce warm, ambient lighting through bedside lamps or fairy lights to create a cocoon of comfort. Opt for bulbs with lower colour temperatures for a soothing, golden glow that instantly transforms the room into a haven of relaxation.

Bring the outdoors in by adorning the space with greenery. A vase of fresh flowers, a potted plant, or a festive bedroom wreath adds a natural and inviting element.

Engage the senses with scents of the season. Light a scented candle or use essential oil diffusers with fragrances like cinnamon, pine, or vanilla to create an immerse your guests in the magic of the festive season.
