1. Extend a warm welcome with a bedside tray
It's the thought that counts-show your guests you have them top of mind by filling a tray with some bedside indulgences. A blown-glass carafe, gourmet chocolates, and a loose arrangement of fresh flowers will make them feel extra special.
2. Feather your nest
Layer beds with light blankets and plush duvets so guests can control their sleeping temperature without adjusting the thermostat. Bedding sets are ideal for guest rooms, because pieces can be thrown in the wash all at once.
3. Make it personal with design touches
Put your own stamp on the bed's style with embellished throw pillows that express your taste and add texture.
4. Add hanger appeal
Padded hangers create a sense of luxury and are gentle on clothing.
5. Stow away in style
Attractive luggage racks at the foot of the bed keep guests' belongings handy. To free up floor space, stash in a closet when not in use.
