“Make yourself at home.” That is the request we make of anyone who comes to our house. For guest who come to a dinner party, that really just means finding a comfortable place to sit to enjoy the meal. But for overnight guests, making them feel like your home is their home will take some TLC effort. You don’t have to makeover your house but there are some things that you should do to get your guestroom ready for holiday visitors.
Change the Linens
The last time you had overnight guests might have been last year at this time. That probably mean you haven’t changed the sheets since the after those holiday visitors left. Technically, the linens are still clean but they might not be as fresh as you would like. It is time to strip down the bed and get everything washed. That also includes a stack of towels for the bathroom designated for your guests.
Set Up a Bathroom Basket
Speaking of the bathroom, you can make your holiday visitors feel welcome with a bathroom basket stocked with travel size bottles of shampoo and lotion. They should also have a fresh bar of soap and toothbrush and toothpaste, just in case they forgot!
Add Hotel Touches
You can add “hotel touches” to the guestroom like having bottles of water, fresh flowers and magazines in there. You can also clear the way to an outlet for them to charge their phone at night.
Put Out a Coffee Bar
You might not be on the same schedule as your holiday visitors and you certainly don’t want them sitting around in the morning waiting for you to wake up. Instead, set up a coffee bar with all the things they would need to start the day with their favorite brew. That includes putting out the mugs!
