Are you planning on welcoming friends or family to your home for the Thanksgiving or Christmas holiday? It is fun to welcome guests to your home for special occasions, but if your home is not ready, it can feel stressful and overwhelming. Here are some tips to ensure that your home is always ready, so you can welcome your guests with a smile.
Make sure you have the essentials
There are a few essentials to have on hand for your guests. First, make sure you have two towels for each guest. It’s a great idea to have guest towels be a different color than your regular towels, so everyone will know which is which. Also, have some extra toothpaste, shampoo, lotion, and other small items for them in case they forget something during their travels. Make sure their room is comfortable and stocked with extra blankets or pillows, too.
Clear a specific area for your guest’s coats, shoes, and luggage. Maybe it’s in the hallway closet, or in their room, but make sure they have enough storage. If they feel like they have to squeeze all of their stuff in the middle of your things, it could make them feel like uncomfortable or like they are imposing.
Hire a housekeeper
A housekeeper will help you tackle your list of cleaning tasks, so your home will be spotless in time for your guest’s arrival. Whether it’s a live-in housekeeper to keep up with the day-to-day tasks of laundry and cleaning, or a live-out housekeeper that visits weekly or bi-weekly, having an extra hand around the house is a blessing. It gives you back more time in your busy schedule and you can rest knowing that all the cleaning will be done right, so your guests feel comfortable and happy to be there.
