If you’re expecting houseguests, then your bathroom is sure to receive extra foot traffic. Whether an overnight stay or an unexpected pop-in, a clean and inviting guest bathroom is key to making a good impression. Here are seven simple ways to ensure your guest bathroom is primped, prepped and primed for visitors.
Give your guests a resort-like stay by stocking your bathroom with all the necessities. Display shampoo and conditioner, body wash, toothpaste, new toothbrushes, cotton balls, new razors and body lotion on the vanity. If short on space, try a bathroom trolley on wheels. Splurge on some extra nice hand soap for guests who aren’t staying the night.
If your guests intend to stay the night, always have enough clean and folded towels and hand towels at the ready. If your space allows it, place a small laundry basket in the corner for used towels.
First Aid Kit
Accidents can happen. To ensure the safety of your guests and to prevent any unnecessary embarrassment keep a small first aid kit under the vanity. Make sure to point it out to your guests on arrival so they know they can help themselves. If small children are staying, best to keep the kit away from curious fingers.
Avoid awkward moments by making sure your guest bathroom is always well stocked with toilet paper. Try a toilet paper that feels ultra-soft, gentle and is dermatologically tested on sensitive skin (like Emporia Skin Sense with a Touch of Lotion) to make your guests feel extra comfortable and pampered.
Not only do flowers brighten up your space, but they also make you happier and fill the room with a pleasant scent. Add a touch of luxury to your guest bathroom by adding a small vase of blooms on the vanity or arrange a row of single stem flowers in assorted jars along the windowsill. Alternatively, hanging eucalyptus leaves from your showerhead is a genius way to keep bathroom smells at bay while adding a day-spa feel.
Seems like a no-brainer, however, you might be surprised at the number of guest bathrooms that have nowhere to put used tissues, wrappers etc. Keep the guesswork out of the guest bathroom and have a small bin in the corner.
A bathroom should always smell fresh and clean. Scent diffusers not only look nice, but they also release a consistent aroma. Otherwise scented candles still do the trick! Make sure to have matches handy.
