3 Sparkle Tips for A Cozy Guest Bedroom
1. The Center of Cozy
“A Billowing Cloud of Comfort AKA … The Bed!”
The center of coziness is the bed. Whether you are using an air mattress or a bed, focus on the bedding. I start with a pillow top mattress pad. It is a “no fail” for a well rested houseguest. Next I use a 100% cotton sateen sheet set. I don’t skimp on the thread count. I go for no less than a 600 to a 1,000 count. They are well worth the cash! Sleep is important! Lastly! Pillows! From plush to extra firm, go for a variety.
Our guests are forever exclaiming, “Wow! I slept great! I think that bed is more comfortable than my own.” I am sure that this trifecta of perfection is our secret. Shhhhh!
Be sure to spend the night in your guest room. Think about the lighting, temperature, and the comfort level and adjust accordingly.
2. Emphasis on The Extraordinary Essentials
Think about the last time you were away from home. What did the last place you stayed provide? Perhaps, a blow dryer, linens, mini toiletries, an extra blanket, an ironing board and iron, and hangers? ABSOLUTELY MAKE ALL OF THESE THINGS EASILY ACCESSIBLE!
UP THAT GAME SPARKLING CHARM SPARKLY FRIENDS! GET CREATIVE!
I always add an agenda, snacks, a robe, slippers, water, local maps, stationary or local postcards with stamps, notepads, pens, an umbrella (we live in the PNW), and a night light. We have recently added Alexa. She is wonderful for a morning news update, favorite music, or even a bedtime story. I also add a power strip with extra outlets for personal electronic devices. I even keep a few extra chargers on hand for popular devices.
Oh Yes! I almost forgot. Be sure to share your Wifi password, passcode, and Instagram hashtag if you have one. I put ours in a frame.

3. Make it Personal
Think about everything you know about your guest/s. Likes? Gender? Age? Jot down what you know and then brainstorm away.
Here are a few of my personalization ideas.
- Leave a welcoming note and a small gift on the bed for your guest. I like to leave something local to the area we live in. We live in the PNW, I leave a local wine or bourbon, a piece of hand blown glass, or a trio of Seattle Chocolate Bars.
- Fill a basket with personalized snacks (healthy and junky), or an create entire Sparkling Charm DIY Cozy Bar Cart.

- Provide a turn down service.
- I freshen beds each evening and add a spritz of a subtle pillow spray.
- I add piece of chocolate on the pillow along with a Sparkling Charm Original Pillow Chat Memo Card. (Click for details and for your free printable.) SO CUTE!
- Refresh water bottles and towels.
- Be sure to leave a guest book. It is fun to read the comments after your guests leave.
