Decor Q&A: Decorating the Guest Bathroom?


The Nest Q&A

What are little things we can do to make our guest bathroom more inviting?


It's all about making your guests feel welcome. Add a storage area where you can keep folded towels and washcloths in plain view. Put a pretty hook or two on the bathroom door to hang wet towels or bathrobe. If you have a small two-square-foot space, consider adding a cool chair or small table. Furniture will enlarge the feel of the room (seriously!).

Also add a linen-lined wicker basket beside the toilet filled with rolls of toilet paper. Keep the vanity and sink area as clean and empty as possible. Consider a pump hand soap instead of small designer soaps that get messy. Just before your guests arrive, light a scented candle (leave the matches!) and a fresh flower in a bud vase so the room feels like an instant escape.
