10 thoughtful guest room essentials that go the extra mile

How to create a welcoming, cozy place for guests that adds that special, thoughtful touch.


Inviting overnight guests to your home is one thing. Actually making them feel welcome during their stay is another thing altogether. Thoughtful touches and small details can go a long way toward making your guest feel comfortable. So the next time you throw open the doors to your casa for a friend or family member, go the extra mile to make their stay a pleasant one. But don’t go too far – you don’t want them to feel so comfortable they never leave!
