2. Provide ample reading light. You don't necessarily need to install new sconces like these beauties, but if the guest room is currently stuck with leftover dim lamps or just one depressing overhead light, borrow a task lamp or two from your office and set them up on the nightstands. If you're lacking nightstands, floor lamps next to the bed will do.
5. Provide a comfy spot for reading and lounging. If your guests have a nice spot to retreat to in their rooms, they'll be more tempted to hang out there a bit and stay out of your hair when you need a little me time.
7. Make sure they have a few hangers for their clothes. No room in the overstuffed guest closet? Buy some over-the-door hooks and place 5-10 hangers on the hooks. Pull out your best fabric-covered or wooden hangers for your guests.
