We had 12 women sleepover this past weekend, it was so much fun. And one night we hosted 30 women for a party who were all mostly from out of town. Some of them stayed at an Airbnb, and it got us talking about things they were frustrated weren’t in the guest rooms. Some of the items seem like an obvious must-have for anyone who has a guest space. Floor mirror anyone?? I have shared a post before on the top things guests really want, but thought it deserved a refresh!
- Mattress Cover– this is a must for guest beds! Breathable cotton with no added chemicals or coatings, this cover features microscopic pores to create a natural protective barrier for your mattress or box spring against pet dander, and other allergens. It’s also a great way to extend the life of your mattress. This is great for boxsprings too!
- Sheets- Gingham Organic– comes in three colors
- Quilt– comes in a bunch of colors and is soft!
- White Duvet Cover– this is a classic look!!!! Highly recommend this one, you will love for years!
- Duvet Insert- Extra Warmth– this is my favorite insert!!! Nothing else can make your bed as full and fluffy!
- Sleeping Pillow- cooling pillow– I got these for the guest room and everyone raved about them
- Decorative Sham Insert- Firm– this sham looks best for the decorative pillows you want extra full
- Euro Cover- reversible– I bought this euro months ago, I knew I would like it with any bedding
- Euro Insert- Firm– only insert I use for euro shams!

What Guests Really Want-
Let’s dig right into the list! I only listed the TOP 20 items that kept coming up over and over when I took a survey.
I was wrong when I thought there was no way this room could get any cuter. Those gingham sheets are so perfect.

Having no top sheet is very European. When I visited friends that live in (and are originally from) Sweden and Germany, both had a bottom sheet and covered duvet on the bed. It was incredibly comfortable and I never felt too hot or too cold. On larger beds, each person has their own duvet which makes it so easy to make your bed in the morning too. No more giving my husband the stink-eye for stealing the covers because we each have our own. Here is an image of what I am talking about.

Love it!💕 Thanks for the printable!
Being from Germany, I use a duvet and cover, but always want a top sheet as well – it often provides a light cover when it is relatively warm. Friends I visit in The Czech Republic and Switzerland generally provide an extra top sheet in case it is too warm for a duvet. My kids always push the top sheet down to the bottom of the bed, so they have a duvet with no top sheet and just sleep with nothing over them if it is warm.
I love the ideas and implement all of them with one exception, I would make the bed with a top sheet or provide one for use. Some people have tactile sensory issues, like myself, and even the slightest stitch on a quilt would make my skin crawl. This is not a criticism, but another idea to consider. There is no doubt that you are an extraordinarily thoughtful woman and hostess!!!!
