Your guest room can become a relaxing and inviting retreat -- instead of an afterthought -- and allow you to host visitors at a moment's notice. While decor, bedding and other pieces will help you create a comfortable and inviting space, these tips will elevate your guest room to a luxurious retreat and make you the most in-demand host in the family. 

Special Touches for the Perfect Guest Room

Go for Luxury: High quality linens, a cashmere throw and luxury soaps will make your room feel like a cozy and special retreat; invest in a few special items and you'll make a big impression on your guests. Consider adding a few small but helpful amenities, including new toothbrushes and toothpaste in the bathroom and toiletries; these welcome additions could prevent a quick run to the store on arrival day and will make your guests feel welcomed. 

Offer Info: If you live near some attractions, areas of interest to visitors or even entertainment districts, stop by your own town welcome center or chamber of commerce occasionally to pick up brochures of some top attractions. Many of these colorful guides also feature promos and coupons just for visitors, so supplying these to out of town guests makes it easy for them to get around. Replace these every year or so, or when they have been used, so you always have something on hand for guests. 

Passwords and Keys: Display the Wi-Fi password and any other details in a prominent place. You can buy or make a custom plaque or sign for this purpose -- even a small, decorative chalkboard will work. This will allow guests to log-in right away and access email, work and entertainment for the duration of their stay. This is also a good spot to add a house key on a decorative ring and any other passes your guests may need. Pool passes, clubhouse tags and even gate passes or tags may be needed to get around easily in your neighborhood, and keeping them handy means you won't be scrambling to find them when guests arrive. 

Think about where guests might want to visit, how they will get around and what they might need as you set up your room. When you've finished decorating, spend a night or two sleeping in the guest room. You may discover it gets very cold at night, or that a nightlight is needed for safe access to other parts of the house. Once set up, your guests will love visiting your luxurious and thoughtfully appointed space, and you'll find getting ready for visitors a breeze.

Many house hunters are so focused on finding the ideal house, yard, and neighborhood, that they sometimes sacrifice one of their main objectives: a short commute to work.

At first, a long drive to the office may seem like a small price to pay for finding your ideal house, but your outlook might change when the tedium of commuter gridlock becomes a daily burden.

Fortunately, there are ways to ease the stress of being stuck in rush-hour traffic twice a day.

Car pooling: By sharing driving responsibilities with one or two other people, you can reduce the overall stress of your trip to the office. You can also save money on gas, highway tolls, and parking fees. Assuming you find carpooling companions whose company you enjoy, time will pass a lot faster. Then, of course, there's the advantage of less wear and tear on your car. Although carpooling may not be as idyllic as living 15 or 20 minutes from work, it can be an effective way to ease the burden of back-and-forth driving.

Telecommuting: As technology advances and more and more people are adapting to it, the option of working from home is becoming increasingly popular. When you consider the many options there are for document sharing and communicating remotely, you may have a strong case for proposing a work-from-home arrangement with your employer. Even though it may be necessary to meet face-to-face with coworkers, colleagues, and clients a few days a week, the ability to split your work time between home and office can save you time, money, and aggravation. As long as you can maintain your productivity working from home, it may turn out to be a life-changing arrangement! Granted, it doesn't work for everyone, but it may be well worth looking into -- at least on a part-time basis.

Public Transportation: If you happen to live close to a train station, then public transportation might be the perfect solution to an otherwise long, tedious drive into the city. Instead of concentrating on road signs and traffic conditions, you can read a book, listen to your favorite music, or prepare for a meeting or presentation. You can also check your email, get a head start on your work day, or even sneak in a few minutes of sleep or meditation.

While the best option for many people is to buy a home that's within 30 minutes of their job or business, that may be difficult to accomplish for couples working in different locations. Long commutes can infringe on important aspects of your life, though, including family time, relaxation time, and being able to get things done around the house. Not having enough time to "recharge your battery," every day, can eventually take its toll on your health, your relationships, and your outlook on life. If finding a house close to work is not panning out, then alternatives like telecommuting, carpooling, and public transportation may be, at least, a partial solution.
