As vacations near and loved ones plan to visit in person, it’s time to prepare your home for overnight guests. Here are five ways to take your guest room from good to great and create an oasis that makes your visitors feel right at home.

1. Store Extra Essentials

There’s nothing worse than realizing you forgot your toothbrush an entire plane ride away. Ease your guest’s mind by offering extra toiletries and other must-haves in discreet, decorative baskets.
