Preparing your home for guests this holiday season
The holiday season is a time for catching up with family and friends, some of whom you may not have seen or spent much time with all year. It is highly likely that some friends or relatives will be travelling some distance to see you, and having overnight guests can be both fun and stressful. Spending some time ensuring your home is prepared for your loved ones before they arrive will give you time to relax and enjoy their company without having to worry about where everyone is going to sleep.
The spare bedroom
If you are lucky enough to have a spare bedroom for your guests, here are a few simple tips to ensure they will be cosy and comfortable. Make sure the bed has fresh, crisp sheets, with plenty of pillows and a warm blanket for when the temperatures plummet. Setting out some clean, fluffy towels so that your guests don’t have to ask before they have a shower and clearing some space in the wardrobe for them to hang their clothes will help to create a homely feeling. Don't forget to make sure that all the bulbs in the room are working if you have not spent much time in there recently!
Space for additional guests
If you don’t have a spare room, or if it has already been accounted for, you can still be the perfect host with a little forward planning. If you have a sofa bed, any room can very easily be transformed into a bedroom in minutes with just a few small touches. Set aside some pillows and blankets ahead of time and put them in an easily accessible place, such as a side cupboard or storage basket. This means you won’t have to frantically search through your linens at midnight after a few glasses of wine! It is also a good idea to identify something that can be easily moved to the side of the sofa bed to act as a side table and ensure that there are some free plug sockets to allow your guests to charge their phones overnight.
Setting out some toiletries, such as new toothbrushes, dental floss and face wipes, can be very helpful if your guests have forgotten any of their essentials when packing for their trip. Plenty of freshly-washed towels and extra toilet rolls will always come in handy, and making sure your guests know that they are free to help themselves will ensure they feel comfortable and welcome in your home, leaving you all free to enjoy yourselves.
