How To Prepare For Overnight Guests
Having guests to stay doesn't need to be stressful, you can create an environment that makes guests feel welcome, comfortable and helps them to enjoy your company and your home. Here are a few handy tips to help you get ready for guests -
First impressions are key when you are welcoming someone into your home, your front door and the area around it is one of the first things they see. Try and de-clutter and make sure they can enter your home easily. Simple things like this can really make a difference. Also try and think about what your home smells like, open some windows prior to their arrival so the room can air out, light a few candles or incense, this will also make it feel more cosy, as well as make it smell wonderful.
Provide the necessities
Make sure you have towels visible and easily accessible for guests. You don't want to bump into them half naked in the hall way! Same goes for toilet roll, always make sure you have a few spare viable in the bathroom so it can be re-filled easily if you have a busy home while they are there.
A Clean And Tidy Home
A clean and tidy home is a must, guests don't want to feel like there is no room for them in your home so get your Hinch on and make sure your home is ready for them. Storage baskets are a perfect way of storing items away out of sight.
A Comfortable Sleep
Spend the night in the bed and test how comfy it is, do you need to make it comfier? You could re-vamp an old tired mattress by adding a mattress protector. You could also treat your guests to a new duvet or pillow to make sure they are extra comfy.
Don't forget to stock up on food and drink! Why not find out what your guests favorite drink is so you can offer this on their arrival. This will show them you have made an effort and will hopefully appreciate your extra efforts.
Your guests are most likely there to see you, so remember that it is the attention you show to your guests that matters more than the extra bits that make their stay even more delightful. As long as you are happy and relaxed we are sure they will be too!
