Essentials for an Inviting Guest Room

Guest Room Essentials From EF Brannon Chattanooga

Creating a space for your guests is about more than choosing beautiful bedding and the right furniture. Of course, that’s a great place to start but when you’re away from your home it’s the little things that bring comfort. A guest room should be filled with certain necessities, comforts, and pretty things that will provide your guests with a home away from home. Check out these guest room essentials to find out what you need to create the ultimate guest room in your home.

One of the most important things your guests will need is a comfortable place to sleep. So be sure to invest in a high quality mattress, such as a Jamison, for a high end hotel feel and a night of sleep that will leave them rested and refreshed. Don’t forget luxurious bedding, like the Arya collection, your guests can sink into at the end of each day.

Help your guests stay organized. Wall hooks are a great option for a guest room since they likely won’t have long term storage needs but rather will need to quickly access everyday items. Hooks provide a place to store handbags, jackets, and hats out of the way and within easy reach. The Starling wall hooks are pretty and functional.

Make it easy for your guests to dress with a floor length mirror. This is a welcome feature when getting dressed in an unfamiliar space. It’s especially helpful if they’re in town for a special event such as a wedding and need to see every detail before they walk out the door. As a bonus, if the guest room is a small space this is an easy way to make it appear a little larger.

A place to sit besides the bed. At the very least, your guest will need a place to sit to put on and remove their shoes. So if space is an issue then a bench at the foot of the bed is a stylish and easy solution. However, if you have the room consider a comfortable accent chair, such as one from Kincaid, so your guest has a place to sit and relax before bed.

Don’t forget extra pillows and blankets. Piles of pillows and layers of blankets will be a welcome sight after a long trip. A mix of fluffy and firm pillows gives your guests comfort options for sleep and they’ll be grateful for the additional blankets if they get cold in the night. 


With all these essentials you can create a home away from home for your guests. Find everything you need in our EF Brannon Chattanooga showroom for the ultimate space to host family and friends in comfort and style.
