Summer is officially here—and people are eager to pack their weekender bags and get away for a few days. Chances are you've already had a few requests from friends and family asking to crash on your sofa or in your guest room. If you have a beach house or live in a popular city like New York, you know this reality all too well, but fret not; we came up with five creative ways to easily upgrade your bathroom in one weekend. No full remodel needed—just a few well-placed luxe accents to delight your overnight guests. Get ready to make your guest bathroom feel like a five-star hotel.
You want the best for your guests, and that means only a five-star treatment will do. You also love an edgy yet refined vibe. Want to channel the chic bathrooms of the iconic Parisian hotel Les Bains? All you need is a touch of marble, rounded accents, a bistro stool, teal towels, and luxe Le Labo toiletries.
You want to dazzle your guests and treat them to the very best—and that includes caviar and champagne. It should also include a luxurious soak tub complete with a caddy of fluffy towels, bath products, antique accents, and a rubber ducky, for good measure.
Midcentury is your middle name. You love it all, from the rosewood credenzas to the turquoise shag rugs. Transport your guests into a Mad Men universe by combining 1950s accents with sleek essentials like white towels and a potted succulent.
You are the traditional type. You live for chinoiserie wallpaper, and you monogram everything from your Jack Rogers sandals to your beach bag. If you want to be the ultimate hostess to your guests, treat them to a spa-like experience: a luxe bubble bath complete with a fluffy robe—monogrammed, of course.
You stand somewhere between bohemian and minimal. You enjoy a good patterned floor tile, but you want your décor to be sleek and simple. Welcome your guests with upgraded essentials like Aésop products and a bud vase holding your favorite flower.
