    The best way to make sure your guest bathroom always looks guest-ready is by cleaning it consistently. Apartment Therapy recommends deep-cleaning the bathroom at least once a month. For daily maintenance, scrub the inside of the toilet and wipe down the toilet’s exterior, the mirror, and the sink. If you use a shower curtain, keep it closed to prevent mildew growth. Finally, empty your trash can regularly.

    Aside from trash, if you keep any of your personal items in the guest bathroom, make sure to clear them out before the visitors arrive. Also, discard empty bottles or expired toiletries. As for items that can still be used, store them neatly.

    Keep fresh towels in stock

    Give your guests a hotel- or spa-like experience by storing clean, soft, and fresh towels in your bathroom. HGTV suggests splurging on thick cotton bath towels, washcloths, and hand towels that will make your visitors feel like VIPs.

    Provide the essentials

    In case your guests are unable to bring their own toiletries with them, it’s always a good idea to stock the bathroom with essentials such as shampoo, conditioner, soap, a toothbrush, toothpaste, and cotton balls. The Spruce recommends letting your kids help you prepare small kits containing these essentials for your guests to use.

    Incorporate new décor

    You may not think of your bathroom as a part of the home you can accessorize, but it can benefit from a little creativity! Add a small tray of tiny trinkets that can infuse some personality to the guest bathroom.
