During the holiday season, there is already additional disarray and bustle in the house, so it is even more important for your guests to have their own space Prior to visitors coming to your house, have a plan as to where they will keep their bags and what kind of area they will need for their belongings.
Clear out a drawer and clean off a shelf that the visitors can use for the duration of their visit. Alternatively, make a plastic container or basket available for the items they need to use during the day.
If you are short on space and storage room in your house, consider purchasing an ottoman that has a compartment for storage. Pillows, blankets, and sheets can be stored inside the ottoman.
If possible, offer your visitor a place in your home that lets them get away from the bustle of the home. If they will be sleeping on air mattresses or in sleeping bags, place them in areas that are away from heavy traffic. It is perfectly fine to have your visitors pack up their sleeping quarters every day. This is especially true if they are staying in a place that needs to be used during the day.
If your child's bedroom will be used by a grownup, be sure that any toys and disarray are cleaned up. In fact, it is practical to keep in mind that your child's room may need to be used for guests when purchasing furnishings for the room. With that in mind, do not buy bunk beds or small-size beds.
You should always supply your visitor with a small light at night, as well as an alarm clock for the morning, no matter where in your home they will be sleeping.
Offer outlets for recharging phones and powering laptops.
A basket of fruit and goodies and bottled water will also make your guests feel welcome. Knowing that this package was compiled especially for them will save them from the awkwardness of delving into your fridge for a snack or drink. A last tip is to let your guests know what they can eat and drink in the kitchen, and make sure they know where the items are.
By utilizing these suggestions, you will allow your upcoming visitors to feel that they are truly wanted in your home.
