Whether you’re starting from scratch with a blank canvas or renovating a previous family member’s room, creating an ideal guest room will not only warmly welcome friends and family but may add value to your home. Avondale Custom Homes has constructed a number of guest rooms where little elements go above and beyond, leaving a memorable impression not only when being used but also when it is time to sell your home. Read on for ways Avondale can help you create a special guest room and get more return on investment.
Morning Bars/Service Bars- Avondale Custom Homes has added a number of services bars to master bedrooms, guest rooms, and dining rooms. These built in cabinetry/countertop combos are the perfect place for single cup coffee machines, mini refrigerators, or wine coolers. By providing beverages and snacks, guests have the option to spend their mornings as they would in their own home…slowly easing into to the day in the comfort of their pajamas, rather than sneaking down to your kitchen. Additionally, guests won’t feel as if they were bothering you when asking where coffee mugs, glassware, or other necessities are that they may need. Morning bars can also conceal common medicine guests may need, extra linens or blankets, frequently used office supplies (paper, pens, etc…), and tech equipment when it is a custom piece created by Avondale. Custom cabinetry and woodworking are areas of expertise for Avondale, therefore they will take your needs and design and construct a beautiful work of art from them.
Built-In Benches- Though built-in benches may seem like an entry way or mud room feature, these permanent furniture pieces serve many purposes in a guest room. Avondale can construct built-in benches that are great to sit on, store luggage on, or sort clothing on. With custom made cushions, built-in benches are great décor accents as well.
Additional ways to make guests feel welcome include:
-minimal décor (as it most often times will get in the way and offer less of a sense of home)
-alarm clock, reading materials, and notes on wireless access, remote control operation, etc… at the nightstand
-ironing board, iron, and empty hangers can be nice additions when offered but out of sight
-provide a variety of lighting options (night lights, flashlights, table lamps, floor lamps)
-toiletries and one-size slippers and robes are welcome offerings
