According to an article at freshome.com, “Holiday Preparation Tips”
“1. Get the guest room ready
The area of your home your guests will spend the most time is the guest room. Spend time in ensuring the room is ready. Start with decluttering and making room in closets and adequate space for suitcases and belongings. Put extra hangers in the closet, and clear out room in clothes dressers or armoire. Preferably buy new bed linen for the bed. If you would prefer to use existing linen, launder them right before your guest arrive. There is nothing more inviting than a fresh made bed for your guests to relax in.
2. Pay attention to the bathroom
When expecting guests to your home, the bathroom should be inviting, clean and offer a relaxing space to unwind and settle into your home. Similarly, to bed linen, fresh bought or laundered towels and a clean and tidy bathroom is a must. If the bathroom is shared with other house members, have them keep their toiletries out of the way to make room for guest’s toiletries. Under the sink, or in a basket will help guests have maximum area to stretch out. For added comfort, make a “in case you forgot” basket with toiletries, shower cap, and razors.
3.Make it comfy and clutter-free
Guests like to stay at your home because you’ll offer them the ambiance and comfortable living that they can’t always get at a hotel. Take an assessment of your home to determine what areas of your home need decluttering. In the main living areas of your home, kid’s rooms, kitchen, and main eating areas are prime areas. If you have an entertaining room – declutter, and make sure there is adequate seating. In your dining area, plan where everyone will sit, and if extra chairs or even tables will be necessary.” To read the entire article click here.
