Harritpure full length arched mirror
Mirrors are a great way to add the illusion of space, especially in a narrow guest room. This arched mirror can be placed against the wall or mounted to the wall for added security. The affordable mirror is available in two heights, 65″ x 22″ and 71″ x 30″, and in black or gold finishes with round bases or a straight edge.
Bask Kin Portable Wireless Lantern Table Lamp
The thing about being a guest staying in someone else’s home is that you are not familiar with the floor plan. This portable light lights the way for guests, and with its three easy-touch dimmable options, the lighting level is highly customizable. Functioning as a bedside light or portable night light, the warm glow lantern is rechargeable and cordless.
Bed comforter set
Keep your guests warm on cold winter nights with this best-selling comforter set. The luxurious set comes with two pillows and a microfiber filled comforter. The collection is available in 28 shades featuring a natural, dual-tone, speckled-like effect. It is available in twin, full, queen, king, and California king sizes. No matter the size of your guest room, you’ll be the perfect host with this cloud-like bedding.
Farmax small Christmas tree
Add a sentimental touch to make your guests feel at home with their own Christmas tree. The miniature lighted tree stands 2 feet tall. Place the rustic tree on a dresser or table to greet your guests without taking up precious space. For a more personal touch, hang some ornaments on snow-covered pine branches.
Dseap over door hook hanger
To welcome guests, give them space to hang their hats – literally. This over-the-door hanger comes with five triple hooks, so there’s plenty of room to hang cold-weather layers, towels, robes, and more. No DIY needed to upgrade, simply hang the shelf from the top of the door. The hanger is available in black, bronze, chrome, gold, copper, white, or white and black.
Distinctive design by Ashley Nashburg Industrial Farmhouse Metal Bed
Although most guest room updates are small, quick additions like investing in a classic-style bed frame will stand the test of time and provide the perfect backdrop for seasonal decor. When it comes to bed frames, the simple iron frame is a sturdy and timeless design. The arched iron bed is available in twin, full, queen and king sizes and comes in matte black, bronze or silver.
Sizzicato 26 oz Amber Borosilicate Glass Bedside Water Pitcher
Every gracious host knows that even small gestures go a long way. Ensuring that your guests don’t have to wake up in the middle of the night to quench their thirst is a small luxury provided by this elegant glass pitcher. The bottle holds 26 ounces of water and is topped with a 12 ounce cup. The all-in-one pitcher is especially useful for small tables, as it saves space and makes it easier for a sleeping guest to stay hydrated.
Adyrescia Chunky Woven Blanket Throw
When it comes to winter blankets, the bigger the better. It’s hard to find a thicker blanket than this popular knit blanket. The blanket is one for display, and can’t be put in the trunk, as it adds texture and depth to a room – especially if it’s draped over a chair or on the bed. Purchase the blanket in four sizes (30″ x 40″, 40″ x 50″, 50″ x 60″, or 60″ x 80″) and 14 colors.
Kenray Towel Warmer
Warm towels and blankets on a cold winter night are a luxury your guests will appreciate so much, they may never want to leave. Amazon’s best-selling towel warmer heats up in one minute and reaches a high temperature in six minutes. So, by the time your guests finish showering, they’ll have a perfectly warm towel, bathrobe or pajamas waiting for them. The 13″ x 13″ x 19″ barrel fits up to two 40″ x 70″ towels, so there’s plenty of space.
AmazonBasics Upholstered Rectangular Storage Ottoman
Every guest room needs adequate storage and seating space, and this ottoman delivers both. The upholstered seat has a deep storage compartment that can be accessed via the lift-off cover. At 16.5″ x 35.5″ x 17″, the rectangular bench sits beautifully along a wall or at the foot of a bed. With three neutral colors (beige, charcoal gray, and taupe), the ottoman will blend seamlessly with any style.
Etoo LED Flameless Candles
Creating a warm atmosphere was as simple as lighting a candle. Now it’s even easier, just press the button on the remote and this flameless candle set will come to life. The package comes in three candle heights – 4 inches, 5 inches, and 6 inches – placed in glass pillars. The flickering candles are realistic, and better yet, they don’t pose a fire threat.
Carrot Den Tissue Box Cover Holder
While many happy things come with winter, specifically vacations and time with loved ones, winter can take a toll on your sinuses. It’s nice to have a tissue box for your guests in case they come down with a cold, but tissue boxes tend to be logo-heavy and not a pretty piece of decor. The simple solution is to cover the box with this best-selling stylish leather holder. It is available in eight colors: beige, black, charcoal, white, tiffany blue, light pink, lavender and pastel grey.
Dovera suede key box
A festive place for your guests to place their everyday essentials like wallets and keys, this reindeer-shaped tray falls into the categories of holiday decor and functional organization – a rarity with seasonal home goods. The deer’s body forms the circular, oval dish, and its antlers serve as a hanging shelf for small accessories.
Elife Christmas Winter Snowflake Embroidery Throw Pillow Covers
Gorgeous winter touches like these snow-covered pillows will turn your guest room into a winter wonderland — even if you don’t live in a part of the country that sees white Christmases. This set of 18″ x 18″ pillow covers easily decorate your home for the holiday season and place beautifully on sofas, chairs, or as accent finishing pieces on beds.
