We might not get snow on the ground but we still know how to throw a great holiday here in Los Angeles. In fact, because of our warm weather and sights to see, LA becomes a favorite spot for out of town visitors to come out and see what it’s like to spend Thanksgiving and Christmas in short and T-shirts down on the beach! To be ready for those guests you’ll want to give your home a mini-make-over. We’re not talking about repainting or remodeling. But a little de-cluttering will go a long way towards making your home inviting to a weekend guest.
First up, getting that spare room ready for an overnight visitor. Even though we have warm days, the nights can get downright chilly here in LA. Make sure your guest room has a spare blanket or two. For that matter, you should also make sure there is a decent reading lamp. An overhead lamp might be bright but you don’t want your guest stumbling around in the dark after they turn off the light from across the room. A little nightstand lamp will do the trick. To freshen up the room, you could bring in a vase of fresh flowers or scented candles. And a couple of magazines or coffee table photo books would be a welcome addition for anyone needing some reading material at the end of a day.
If you can clear out space in the closet, make sure you’ve got spare hangers for your guests to hang their clothes. Even something simple as a spare ottoman in the corner for their suitcase is a nice touch. That’s much better than having the suitcase on the floor.
Just because you don’t have a designated guest room doesn’t mean you can’t make your overnight guest comfortable. It might be that a firm air mattress in a den or living room can do the trick. These are surprisingly affordable and durable. Of course, you’ll need the room to inflate the mattress. That might call for tossing out some of the clutter that’s been gathering dust in your home.
