Make it bright

 

Dark bathrooms can often seem a bit depressing. Yet, having visually bright bathrooms makes it refreshing and relaxing. If your guest bathroom is painted in a darker color, try white. An easy DIY paint job will cost you approximately $10-$80. Having windows makes it easier since all you have to do is open up the blinds and let natural light in. But, if your guest bathroom doesn’t have any windows, add some extra lighting. The average cost of installing lights costs around $80-$300+. Also, don’t forget to clean the light fixtures and change the bulbs if necessary.

 

Vanity rules

 

Bathroom vanities often play an important role in creating the mood of the bathroom. You could either get a vanity with a single sink or with double sinks. A double-sink vanity would be a better option if there is more than one person staying over. This gives them more space for their stuff because nobody likes clutter around the sink area. But, this also depends on your budget. At Nelson Cabinetry, bathroom vanities are great to shop for as they come in many new designs and different prices.

Towels

 

To be real, nobody likes using old, ragged towels. It is never a bad idea to have a stack of new, fresh towels—especially for your guests. It doesn’t have to be anything luxury, but try going with better, soft-quality ones. Turkish cotton would be a perfect fit for your guests, but only if this works with your budget. Budget options are available for a few dollars apiece, or you can buy luxury towels for $50 or more. It depends on how much you care for your guests—or your budget.

Essentials are essential

 

We all forgot a toothbrush or shampoo at some point in our life while traveling. So, be sure to keep your guest bathroom stocked with some grooming essentials. Keep them stored in someplace visible, or show them where they are stored if in vanity. Here is the list of some essentials that you should include in your guest bathroom;

  • Shampoo/Conditioner
  • Bath soap
  • Toothpaste
  • Extra toilet paper
  • Mini first aid kit
  • Toiletries (nail clippers, tampons, etc.)
  • Bathrobe

Eau de perfume

 

A smelly bathroom isn’t very inviting. Air out your guest bathroom as much as you can, especially before your guests arrive. Air fresheners, reed diffusers, or even candles are perfect for getting rid of bad smells, and only cost a couple of dollars. One more thing that will make your guest bathroom airy and refreshing is fresh-cut flowers. If you have a garden at home, it will cost you nothing. It will add to the aesthetic of your guest bathroom as well as make your guests feel a bit special. If you want to go even a step further, try finding out their favorite type of flower and be the best host ever.
