The holidays are a time for family and friends to come together. Whether it be the cousin you never get to see, or the in-law you maybe see a little too much, it’s important to make sure your home is a comfortable environment for any guests you may host. So how do you make your guests feel at home?
First and foremost, your home should be as tidy as possible. Your guest room and bathroom should always be thoroughly cleaned in preparation for company. Though typically unoccupied, dust mites and other pests can accumulate in those areas over time. Knowing they are in a clean environment is a great way to put visitors at ease.
It’s hard enough sleeping in an unfamiliar place, so you’ll want to make sure your guests are sleeping on a comfortable mattress. No one should fall victim to the terrors of a worn out mattress. Providing a quality mattress is a courteous investment that will last you throughout many future holiday gatherings.
The type of pillow you prefer may not be the most comforting pillow for your guests. Some sleeping styles are better accommodated by specific pillows, so it’s important to have multiple pillow alternatives for your guests to choose from. It’s all about variety!
Lastly, do your best to provide enough space for your guests’ belongings. If the room they’re staying in is small, provide them with a dresser for their clothes and accessories. Offer to store their empty suitcase in an unoccupied part of your home to free up space.
A comfortable environment is a great way to boost your gatherings this holiday season— you may even go down in history as being the best host in the family!
