The holidays are just around the corner and we all know what that means—visitors! Whether it's your parents, siblings, distant relatives or close friends, you want to be sure whoever is bunking up with you this holiday season feels right at home.

While the guest room usually gets a lot of use during the holidays, it can often be neglected throughout the rest of the year. You may step into your guest room and realize it requires some attention before you will allow anyone to stay in there, much less your mother-in-law. Before panic sets in, we've compiled a list of sleep accessories that can give your guest room the refresh it needs.

The Best Sleep Accessories For Your Guest Bedroom

Sleepy's Fenton Column Headboard

A new headboard is one of those accessories that can completely change the look of a room. If you're feeling like your guest room needs a bit of an upgrade aesthetically, consider something like the Sleepy's Fenton Column Headboard. This classic linen headboard compliments any decorating style with its simple lines and soft, tufted panels and can give your guest room the upgrade it needs to feel like a new cozy space.


PureCare Luxury Microfiber Wrinkle Resistant Sheets

When staying in someone else's home, many people have come to expect old, pilling sheets and just hope there aren't any holes for their feet to get stuck in. Take your loved ones by surprise with these Luxury Microfiber sheets. This is the ideal set for a guest room as these silky soft sheets offer a low-cost solution for quality linens that are durable, wrinkle resistant and machine washable.


Lucid 3" Gel Memory Foam Topper

How many times have you stayed in a family member's home and dreaded going to sleep each night because of the mattress? If you don't want to be that person but aren't in the market to replace your mattress, we recommend investing in a mattress topper. The Lucid 3" Gel Memory Foam Topper creates a comfortable sleep surface, conforming to the curves of the body. The cooling gel and hundreds of ventilation holes allow air to flow through the topper, giving your guests a comfortable, refreshing night's sleep.


Sleepy's Cool Pillow

Similar to a mattress topper, new pillows can reinvigorate your guests' sleeping experience. The Sleepy's Cool Pillow is perfect for a cool night of rest, especially when the heat inside is on full-blast. As you sleep, the gel foam contours to your head and neck providing a gentle, uninterrupted sleep. Your guests will love going to bed each night, not just to get away from the holiday commotion, but to lay their head on this incredibly comfortable pillow.


Leggett and Platt 100 Series II Adjustable Base

Adjustable bases, such as this Leggett and Platt 100 Series II, move the mattress into a variety of positions from reclining to inclining, which can help any sleeper get situated to the most comfortable sleep position for their body. From grandma's back pain to the crazy uncle who snores louder than a freight train, an adjustable base is one of the easiest ways to help all your guests get the best night sleep when they stay with you.


Malouf Sleep Tite Pr1me Smooth Mattress Protector


No matter how often your guest room is used, it's important to protect your mattress with one of the best mattress protectors available. The smooth surface of the Sleep Tite Pr1me Smooth Mattress Protector is quiet, breathable and, most importantly, hypoallergenic. Its lab-certified H2Pro membrane allows easy airflow but repels liquids, dust, and allergens, and its vinyl, PVC, and phthalate-free construction is perfect for asthma, eczema, and allergy sufferers. And, best of all, it won't change the feel of your mattress, so your guests the best your mattress has to offer.

Don't let the task of refreshing your guest room get in the way of the joy the holidays bring. Just remember, it's about the quality time and memories you're creating with your family, not about the aesthetics of your guest room!
