Hi there. Today is our last “sleeping spaces” challenge and I had fun putting this post together. If you have missed any of the previous challenges or would like to read the intro, just click on a link below! We have two more weeks ahead of us and will be starting with the kitchen tomorrow. The challenges for our “eating spaces” will be full of tips for organization, function, and style.

Love Your Space Challenge #9
Be Ready for Guests
Whether you have a guest room or not, it is always nice to have items set aside to make their stay more comfortable.
Option 1: If you have a designated guest room a small writing desk, an upholstered chair, and a luggage rack are usually appreciated by guests and visitors. I know this isn’t practical for everyone, only if you have the space and the means. 😉 You can always work with what you have and think outside of the box!
Option 2: If you do not have a designated guest room, have guest items stored and ready in the linen closet or bedroom.
Check list for both options:
A few empty hangers in the closet. Bath/house robe would be a bonus and make your guests feel special!
An empty drawer if practical.
Reading materials set aside for them. (Just a few magazines, classic novels, or novelty books will do the trick!)
Writing material with a couple of stamps (pen and pretty paper or stationary )
Extra bedding (even if it is just an extra quilt or throw blanket)
A dish for jewelry
Bathroom items: toiletries (travel bottles collected in a pretty container will do the trick) extra towels, hair dryer, Tylenol, sunscreen
Extra items: (per my husband’s suggestions. He’s a keeper!) sleeping mask, house socks or slippers, brochures or local map for your area, wi-fi password)
I put a little guest “collection” together on my daughter’s dresser to show you what I usually do. We do not have a spare room for guests so we make do with what we have. Fortunately there is enough space in our daughter’s bedroom to have an empty drawer and room in the closet for longer visits. Everything is stored close by in the linen closet for easy access.
Remember that little personal touches make your guests feel special!
Thanks for being my guest today,
