Powder Room Essentials your Guests will Appreciate
July 7, 2017
When you’ve got guests coming to visit, hospitality is essential. Making sure your guests are comfortable in your home is important, and there are several things you can do to help ensure your guests feel at home. Having a clean, well put together powder room for your guests to use can make them feel comfortable, and can be a lifesaver if they’ve forgotten something. Here are some simple things you can add to your powder room that your guests will appreciate.
First and foremost, soap and toilet paper! These items should go without saying, and we doubt your bathroom is lacking either, but we are including these items in our list anyway. Not only having soap and toilet paper out for guests, but also having backups is essential.
Running out of toilet paper and having to ask for more can be embarrassing for anyone, so having a spare roll (or three) for your guests is important. Likewise, having extra soap will keep you from ever accidentally running out, so having a back up in your vanity or cabinet is a good idea.
Speaking of soap and washing hands, hand towels are a must. Whether you want to stock your powder room with cloth hand towels or disposables, your guests will thank you.
Now that we have the things you must have covered, let’s talk about some extras. Having breath mints is a nice touch, and your guests are sure to appreciate them. Likewise having some type of air freshener is a good addition to your extras list, since a smelly bathroom can be very embarrassing.
Lastly, consider having a few magazines or a book or two in your powder room. Place them on a cabinet or the vanity; if you don’t have one then a small magazine rack will work as well.
If you are in the market to remodel your powder room, or you are currently in the process of designing the layout of your home, consider the accessibility of your powder room. Not only will having an accessible bathroom help increase the value of your home, it will make your home comfortable and accessible to everyone.
To make your powder room more accessible you’ll need to design it in a way that keeps it open and navigable. Adding a handicap accessible toilet and vanity will make your bathroom functional and inviting for everyone.
Making sure your guests feel comfortable in your home is important, and putting together a thought out and fully stocked powder room is one way you can be hospitable to your guests. By going above and beyond the normal powder room necessities, you can make your guests feel more at home by including things like backups, mints, reading material, etc.
