Is your guest bathroom ready for holiday guests? This week letâ€™s focus on the bathroom guests will use. The following two articles will also include tips to help you get ready.
Towels and TP
Have a couple of fresh towel sets accessible; you may want to consider getting a new set if your towels are thin or discolored. If you do not have a linen closet in your bathroom, use shelving or add aÂ cabinet. I love this decorativeÂ storage ladderÂ or theÂ over-the-toilet ladderÂ from Pottery Barn, where you can use baskets to hold all the extra items.
Always provide extra TP; if you are limited in space, consider a free-standing holder. Be creative with storing and displaying bathroom necessities, hang baskets to serve as shelving.
If you do not plan to do laundry every day, have a place where guests can hang up their wet towels. If you have no space for a towel bar or wall hooks, add a stand-alone quilt rack or an over-the-door hanger.
Toiletries, Soap, Lotion
How many times have you traveled and forgotten your toothpaste? I always like to provide a small basket of the basics: new travel size toothpaste and brush, mouthwash, sensitive skin makeup remover wipes, deodorant, Q-tips, dental floss, unscented tissues, and a wastebasket. Display a neutral to no-scent hand soap and body lotion on a lovely tray by the sink. Add a floating shelf above the sink if you have no bathroom counter space. For a seasonal touch, add a small vase of fresh flowers that display colors of the season.
