Home Renovation – The Guest Bedroom & Linen Closet

Obviously one of the areas I need to work on with my “warm welcome” goal is our guest room. It’s rather small and I am looking for ways to maximize its coziness.

To go with this, I want to tweak the bathroom to make it more user friendly. And also do a bit with the linen closet where guest can find the various towels they will need.

Any suggestions and ideas will be greatly appreciated!


  1. I love it when a guest bathroom has a supply of shampoo, conditioner, and body wash and fluffy towels.

  2. if there is a nightstand, I suggest maybe a couple note pads, and pencils, some reading material, and or crossword puzzles. Something that people can or might want to relax. Facial tissue, a night light (just thinking of things that I have had left for me as a guest that I loved).

    I have light blue and brown silk stripped curtains that were too light for our living room if you are interested!

  4. Hi Teri, nice new spot you have over here.

    My first thought on what I would love in a guest room is a lamp beside the bed and some magazines or books to browse through.

  5. I like all the above suggestions along with a couple of candles, bowl of candy, and a basket of magazines. In the bathroom, I like to have a couple of extra new toothbrushes and candles in there, too.
