What to keep in your guest bathroom

Now that we have a house with a real guest room (that has it’s own bathroom), we get quite a few overnight visitors. One of my tips in this post about how to prepare for home guests was to make their space, meaning the rooms that they will use the most, extra comfortable. I went over how to do this in the bedroom but today, I wanted to share my tips for how to prepare the bathroom which can be equally important.

We finally got around to painting this space and installing a Decora Bath Mirror with pullout storage (scroll down to see how you can win one for your house!) last month, so I thought this would be the perfect time to share some photos of the little room. We installed this mirror so that I could conveniently store products above the sink and give extra room to my guests for their own toiletries as well (both sides pull out for extra space).

When I started stocking up the bathroom, I thought of how I would want to feel in someone else’s house. I personally love staying in hotels because everything is new and clean and if I forgot something like soap or a toothbrush, it’s there. I went above and beyond that, filling the room with everything from face wash to fancy toothpaste to q-tips to make up remover to hair spray.

I splurged on nicer products because I know they’ll last a while (unless we get a permanent guest anytime soon!) and it will make anyone who stays with us feel like we really care. If you’ve been reading my blog for a while now, you’ve probably noticed my obsession with cleanliness and lack of clutter… I don’t just clean up the house for photo shoots, it’s always like this!

The bathroom is nothing fancy but it’s fresh and clean, making my friends and family feel right at home. It also goes nicely with the guest room itself without looking too matchy. Scroll down to see photos of our cozy but not too fancy guest bathroom, a list of what I stock up on so that my friends and family feel more at home in my home, and a chance to win this mirror for yourself!
