Our apartment in Chicago was a revolving door to guests. It seemed like once a month we had friends or family coming into town and we loved it! Unfortunately, our "guest room" at the time was more of an office/Nick's closet/storage room so it's been really nice to have a proper bedroom devoted to our visitors in the new house. Over the past four years of hosting, I've come to learn what are essentials for a guest room and what aren't. Here are a few things I would recommend keeping around to make your guests feel welcome and comfortable in your home.
