Ideas for an Inviting Guest Bathroom

It’s common to have family or friends stay over during the holidays. You may have relatives coming in from a different state to spend the holidays with you. You want guests to feel as comfortable and at ease as possible in your home, and that includes the guest bathroom. Keeping it neat and clean should be a given, but if you want to elevate your guests’ experience and make it more comfortable and inviting, here are a few tips:

Install a Standalone Sink

A beautiful standalone sink would not only add a touch of elegance and luxury to your guest bathroom; it would increase its functionality as well. Badeloft offers a wide range of stand alone sinks at www.badeloftusa.com. They are made from high quality stone resin, which offers a more natural and refined look compared to sinks made of other materials. They come in a variety of shapes and sizes, and you can customize them by choosing different fixtures, faucets and finishes, so you are sure to find a sink that will match your bathroom perfectly.

Stone resin is lightweight and relatively inexpensive, yet it is also remarkably durable and easy to clean and maintain. Installing a standalone sink is a quick and easy way to elevate your guest bathroom, and to add a stylish and attractive centerpiece for your guests to enjoy.

If you have the extra space and budget, you may want to consider installing a freestanding tub instead. A freestanding tub is the height of luxury for any bathroom, and can serve as a place for your guests to unwind and relax in. The freestanding bathtubs from Badeloft USA are made from the same high quality stone resin as their sinks, so they are also lightweight, durable and easy to install and maintain. They can retain heat longer than many other materials, so your guests can enjoy longer warm baths.

Improve the Lighting

Poor lighting can make any space feel dank and depressing, but especially a bathroom. Bathrooms need enough lighting to be functional and comfortable to use. If your guest bathroom has a large window that lets in plenty of light, take advantage of the natural light as much as you can. Use only light curtains that will protect your guests’ privacy while still letting in light.

If you don’t have the advantage of a guest bathroom with a large window, don’t worry. There are still plenty of ways you can improve the lighting. Install bright, energy efficient light bulbs and a smart dimmer switch so your guests can easily switch from bright lighting while grooming themselves, to more subdued lighting when they want to relax and take a warm bath. You should place your lighting strategically; in general, the shower area and the vanity should be the most well-lit areas in your bathroom so your guests can see what they’re doing.

Add Fluffy Towels and Robes

One of the best things about hotel bathrooms are the fresh, clean and fluffy towels and robes they offer. Make your guest bathroom feel more luxurious and inviting by putting out fresh new towels and a fluffy robe and slippers for them to use. You may even want to invest in a towel heater so your guests can keep their towels warm while they shower or bathe.

It won’t cost much or take too much effort to make your guest bathroom more inviting. Remember that it’s often the thoughtful little touches that make a room more welcoming. Always consider your guests’ needs and what would make their stay more comfortable, and you are sure to come up with more ideas yourself on how you can make your guest bathroom more inviting.
