Today is the start of another great week of Roomspiration!
Are you having as much fun as I am checking out all the cool rooms being linked up and also, even better, meeting new bloggers? If you missed last week’s Roomspiration link ups, no worries! The blog links are open until October 14th so there is plenty of time to link up and also check out all the awesomeness being posted. Today head on over to Judy’s blog at DIY by Design to link up your Guest Bedrooms and below are the blog link ups from last week
Entryways – Abode Love
Living Rooms – View Along the Way
Bathrooms – Homemaker on a Dime
We technically don’t have a guest bedroom in our home because having enough bedrooms for each child along with an office for my husband proved hard enough to find, so adding an extra room might have put us in a cardboard box down by the river. Which really wouldn’t be suitable for guests either, unless you are part Otter. .
The solution to our dilemma was to give our oldest daughter a queen size bed and to kick her out of her bedroom whenever guests come to visit us. She has a bedroom in the basement along with our second oldest daughter. So in the second’s room we have two twin beds which also can be used for guests. If I had a real guest room, this is what it would look like, thank you pinterest!
More importanly than what the guest room looks like, is how your guest room makes your guests feel. Here is a list of some things to consider having available to your guests:
– Comfortable bedding
– Extra blankets
– Magazines or books for reading
– Shampoo, soap, toothpaste, contact solution and case
– Bottled water and snacks
– Fresh flowers
My friend Jenny who is the hostess with the mostess, likes to have bottled waters and whatever your favorite treat is, waiting in the guest room for you. Which makes me want to never leave her guest room, I would love to just lay around, eat chocolate and read Country Living all day. Ok, well that’s not true because I love Jenny and want to hang out with her but I think eating chocolate and reading Country Living all day isn’t a bad alternative.
So do you have a guest bedroom? Anything I forgot to mention on my list of items to have available for guests? Also, if you stay at my house, please don’t reference this post as applying to you and your visit. We don’t provide most of those amenities. 😉
