We are officially in the holiday season and there’s no turning back! Despite all the potential running around your about to engage in this is actually everyone’s favorite time of the year. The hope is that you can enjoy the holidays without bringing too much stress on to yourself. This is also the time a year when we open our home to holiday guests. Here are some great ideas to keep in mind to make your home ready for those holiday guests:
Clean Up the Entryway
The first stop any holiday guest will make will be at your front door. You might have the outside beautifully decorated but what’s the first thing they going to see when they step inside? If your front door is your home’s unofficial “mud room,” then you want to take steps to make sure all the shoes are picked up and the coats are hung where they should be. It might be time to introduce some wicker baskets for those shoes and designate a specific basket for each family member.
Make Room in Your Coat Closet
It’s a safe bet that all your guests will be wearing coats. You can throw them on your bed but that can create problems when it’s time to retrieve them. Instead, it makes more sense to make room in that hallway closet where you hang your family coats. You could also bring in a standing coat rack just for the holidays.
Stock Up On Guests Supplies
If some of your holiday guests will be spending the night, then you need to stock up on supplies. Think about getting additional towels, sheets, pillows, blankets or comforters. You could also set up guest baskets with tiny shampoos, conditioners, lotions and soaps. Whatever personal touches you can make will certainly be appreciated.
Think About Clearing Out Storage
Your overnight guests don’t want to live out of a suitcase. If you can make room in a dresser or guest room closet, then that is what you should do. It might mean putting some of your things in storage. Better yet, you could discover that a lot of stuff you’re holding onto could actually be tossed out.
