Conquering the Guest Bedroom Like a Pro

0001-35686334

What room should be the most relaxing and enjoyable room in the house? The Guest Room! The guest room is one of the most crucial rooms in the house to keep in tiptop shape. We always want to ensure a comfortable relaxing stay for our wonderful guests. There are many different items you can include in the décor to really have your guest room stand out above the rest, but we broke it down to seven essentials.

Basket Of Magazines

The first essential item that really just brings a calming feel is a basket of magazines. Always keep all your magazines that come through the mail, so if your guest would like to take a magazine with them, they can. Keep a variety of different magazines; everyone is into different things. The most important part of this is the basket. Pick something that goes with the rest of the room and any “theme” you might have going in the room. Just fan them out; make them look pretty.

Closet Hangers

Additionally, I love when I go somewhere that has hangers for me so I can hang up all my important clothes. Leave about eight hangers in the closet for convenience purposes. Your guests will be impressed and very satisfied when it comes to the end of their stay.

 

Extra Blankets and Pillows

Extra blankets and pillows! This is critical because that’s the number one question guests ask about: if you have a blanket. Don’t make them ask! Give them extra! Make sure the blankets and extra sheets are always clean. Check twice for stains, and never let it smell!

 

Full Length Mirror

Women love full-length mirrors. I know I could probably stand in front of one all day. We want to be able to see our whole outfit all at once. You might not understand the simple joy and happiness you’re bringing to your guest when you put a full-length mirror in the guest room. They will love it!

Blowdryer Blog

The fifth essential item is quite a serious one. If you don’t use it right, you could completely blow it…a hairdryer!! When you and your guest are trying to get ready in a certain amount of time and you both need to use the hairdryer at the same time, it gets really busy and slows you both down. Do you both a favor and keep a spare under the sink in the guest bathroom. Make sure they’re aware of it and where it’s at.

Wifi Password

I grouped everything on the bedside table into one category: the bedside table grouping. There are four crucial items necessary for the night stand, including books, an alarm clock, lamp, and the Wi-Fi password. Any books will do; just make sure they at least look a little interesting. You never know when someone’s in the mood for some midnight reading. You need an alarm clock on there. You don’t want them having to reach for their phone or look at their watch every time they would like to know what time it is. You want them to be able to wake up to the radio if they would like that. An alarm clock is just essential for it’s convenience. This is the same with the lamp. You need a cool lamp that spices up the room with style, but one that is extremely functional. This might be the most used piece in the whole guest bedroom. Last but not least, the Wi-Fi password. Not many people think about this, but if you have it already set out in front of them, they’ll love you for it. With the social media being so big nowadays, it is just nice to leave it out for them. You can put it in a nice frame and look more like a piece of art as you can see in the photo.

Flower Arrangement

The last item is partly for décor and partly to add a scent. They’re flowers!! I gave a brief description of how to make the perfect flower arrangement in the post about the 2015 summer trends for your home. Flower arrangements have a classic, beautiful effect in a room. They work everywhere to make a room look softer and more relaxed. It helps that they smell so nice and fresh as well!

Well, there are our seven essentials to conquering the guest bedroom like a professional. Very simple. Very easy. Add this here; add this there. Just to acknowledge all the items again, we have a basket full of magazines, extra closet hangers, extra blankets and sheets, a full-length mirror, a hairdryer, the bedside table grouping, and flowers. Your guests will be very impressed and extremely satisfied!

Do It for Dad! Happy Father’s Day!

 

DIY-4

Father’s Day is just around the corner, and maybe you’re struggling to come up with some great ideas for a unique gift for Dad. If you’re tired of buying the same old tie each year, we have some creative and inexpensive Do-It-Yourself gift ideas. This is a great chance to get the kid’s involved in making their own personal gift for Dad. Round everybody up for a trip to Hobby Lobby to gather some supplies and give one of our cool and creative gifts a try!


Amber's Blog photos-Father's Day Here’s a simple and cute DIY craft to try with your kids. Start by coming up with some simple questions to ask about their Dad, such as, where he was born, what his hair color is or maybe what his favorite food is. Type up the questions and answers and print it out on your choice of paper. Next, select a paint color for the hand print. Make sure the color is light enough and the paint is not too thick to cover up the questions. After the paint dries, simply place it into a cute frame to present to Dad on Father’s Day.

This one is for the Dad’s with a sweet tooth! This gift is both sweet and functional! When he is done enjoying the treat, he can use his personalized jar for storing things like pens, paperclips, or nuts and bolts. Start with a simple mason jar and select his favorite candy. Now it’s time to get creative! Decorate the top of your jar by adding colorful paper strips, paint, or some cool duct tape. Next create a personal tag for Dad, like the one pictured above, and attach it to your jar. Now for the best part, fill it up with his favorite candy! (Try not to sneak too many for yourself.)

Here’s an adorable DIY gift for the whole family to be involved in. For this simple craft, you will need some colorful cardstock, a photo frame and scissors. Start out by gathering the whole family together to trace their handprints onto the cardstock and cut them out. Then arrange the handprints from largest to smallest and glue them to a solid piece of cardstock. You can put a message of your choice or design it like the one shown above. Once it’s framed, you have the perfect gift for Dad from the whole family!

Here’s another favorite craft idea that we liked. It’s the perfect way to record your memories with Dad! To begin this craft you can either assemble your own journal or purchase one at your local office supply store. Now it’s time to get creative! You can design your cover page with cute craft paper, markers, stickers or go all glitter! Inside the journal, you can insert fun photos of the kid’s with Dad and have them write a small caption of that special day. It’s the perfect way to capture cherished memories in a cute notebook for Dad to enjoy whether he is at work or home. Source

Now that you have some cool and creative ideas for Dad, he won’t be stuck with another boring tie! These crafts are a great way to save money, spend time together and shower Dad with fun and personalized gifts. I hope we inspired you to let your creative side take over this Father’s Day. This year, don’t be afraid to get crafty and let the fun begin!
