Turn spare bedroom into guest retreat

December 29, 2008|By Scripps Howard News Service / Home and Garden Television

A continuing compendium of tips and tricks from Home & Garden Television:

1. Create an environment that promotes a great night's sleep. Make the bed super-comfy by adding a thick duvet and lots of fluffy pillows. High-thread-count, 100 percent cotton sheets are also a must.

2. Stock the guest room with magazines and books and put together a snack tray or basket filled with light snacks and bottled water.

3. Lay out his-and-hers bathrobes and place rolled bath towels at the foot of the bed in case guests would like to freshen up upon arrival.

4. Hang a small mirror in the guest room to provide a spot for touching up makeup or putting on jewelry. A long dressing mirror is also a nice addition.

5. If your overnight guests are family or close friends, it's always a nice touch to display photos of time spent together in the past; everyone enjoys a trip down memory lane.
