Hosting family and friends is one of the greatest pleasures after the recent purchase of a home. This is an opportunity to not only make your guest’s feel as comfortable as possible, but also wow them with your new home and new location.
There are an abundance of ways to impress when entertaining your northern visitors including the guest bedroom, trip itinerary and various little gifts and surprises that will elevate their experience to its fullest potential. Here are some tips to transform your guest’s vacation from a quick beach getaway to a trip they won’t forget.
Guest Bedroom Setup
Architect and visual content designer Hannah Martin writes, “A guest room should be a welcoming space that combines the amenities of a hotel with the intimacy and charm of a home.”
Is there a particular design style or an artwork / pattern that you find yourself gravitating towards that just does not quite fit into the general design or layout of your home? Well, you’re in luck because the guest bedroom is the perfect space for innovation, think– bright colors, accent pieces, and unique form. Nothing has a wow factor quite like a successful, bold design choice.
Including the Necessities
When your visitors are leaving the cold weather to enjoy a little quality beach time, it is always a good idea to welcome them with small gifts on the bed such as sunglasses, hats, beach towels, ect. This little touch will go a long way in evoking excitement in your guests.
Other practical items to consider incorporating into the bedroom should include: extra pillows / light blankets, fresh sheets, a tidy nightstand, lamp, an outlet or extension cord near the bed, cell phone stand, full-length mirror, fan, and an additional air mattress or a trundle bed.
Plan Your Itinerary Ahead of Time
It is always nice to have a good variety of snacks on hand in case a guest has allergies or prefers certain foods. If you plan to dine out at one of Naples’ hundreds of excellent restaurants, think ahead and ask ahead of time for these preferences before making reservations.
Although the anticipation of guests can add a lot of pressure initially, by preplanning appropriately, you can ensure a seamless, fun experience with your visitors. Considering Naples is one of the top vacation spots in the country, there is certainly no lack of fun activities to do with guests. Check out our blog Out & About Naples Style for some inspiration.
One of the most important things to remember is to simply kick back and enjoy the company because when you’re relaxed, your guests will be too.
