1. Clear the Clutter
Many people make their guest rooms dumping sites. They fill them with toys, dirty laundry, and unused furniture. Remove the extra items and pack the small ones in boxes. Maximize the closet by using stacking boxes and organizers. You can use a freestanding rack to create space for visitors to hang their clothes. Also create room for folded garments by adding hanging organizers or closet racks.

2. Know Which Things to Keep and Which Ones to Toss
After clearing the clutter, divide the items into two piles: those you should keep and those you should throw. Things you can keep include timely magazines, books, area maps, local tourist brochures, and transit schedules. Those to be thrown include old magazines and worn out keepsakes. Relocate fragile keepsakes because children may break them by accident.
3. Pamper Your Guests
As soon as your guests walk in through the door, make them feel at home. Place a luggage rack in the guest room to allow them to unpack their belongings. Even if they decide not to unpack, they will still be able to access their things easily. As well, place fragrant liners in the drawers and shelves, add padded hangers to closets, and use room sprays. It goes without saying that your special care will be remembered.

4. Inspect the Room
Before your guests come, inspect the room to see what’s working and what isn’t. Many problems can go unnoticed in a room that isn’t used constantly. Check the lamp to see whether it needs a new bulb and examine ceiling corners for cobwebs. Add clean sheets, pillows, blankets, an alarm clock, and a night light. You can buy a motion-sensor light to help your guests avoid stubbing their toes at night.
