Thinking of remodeling your “Guest Room?” Here are some tips on how to make the ultimate guest room — leaving your guests feeling as pampered as the most posh resort.

First, layer the bedding and use a lot of pillows. Keep an extra blanket handy in the closet and provide a throw at the end of the bed.

Second, make sure there is lots of lighting, including reading lamps and a well lit hallway to the guest bathroom.

Third, provide a small desk and chair, and include some elegant paper and pens. We all know this is the computer age, but this little detail will complement your style as a gracious host/hostess!

Finally, stock the guest bathroom with small amenities such as a toothbrush, toothpaste, shampoo and soap. For those that may have forgotten to pack these items, they will will be much appreciated!
