The holiday season is officially right around the corner. This means that it’s time to start preparing your home for guests! Whether you’re hosting a party or just having some friends and family over, there are six simple things that you can do to prepare your home before they arrive:
1. Clean Your Home Thoroughly
The first thing you’ll want to do is clean your home. If not for yourself, at least for the sake of guests coming over! Make sure that all surfaces are wiped down and that there aren’t any dishes in the sink or laundry piled up on the couch. This will keep your house looking presentable without having too much work done before guests arrive.
2. Make Sure the Floors are Cleaned
If you have the time, go one step further and vacuum your floors or mop them if they’re tile or wood. This will help keep any dirt or dust from being tracked around the house while guests are there. A great way to make sure you are mopping your floors properly is to use a steam mop. You won’t even have to touch the cleaner or dirty water!
3. Put Out Fresh Flowers in a Vase
A simple way to make your home feel more inviting is to put out fresh flowers in a vase or bowl. This will add some color and life to the room, and it’s an easy way to make your guests feel welcome.
If you don’t have any flowers on hand, try using potted plants instead! They’ll take up less space and will still make your home feel festive.
4. Change Bedding to Make it Look More Inviting
Another way to make your home feel more welcoming is to change your bedding. This doesn’t have to be a huge process – just switch out your regular sheets for some festive holiday linens. Not only will this make your bedroom look nicer, but it’ll also make it smell like Christmas!
If you’re really short on time, try using a quilt or blanket as a bedspread. This will add some color and pattern to the room without taking much effort.
5. Refresh Any Toiletries
If you notice that your soap, shampoo, or toothpaste is running low, make sure to pick some up before guests come over. This will help them feel comfortable and taken care of during their visit. There’s nothing worse than having a guest staying with you who needs toiletries and can’t find any!
6. Stock Up on Snacks
Last but not least, make sure to stock up on snacks! This is especially important if you’re hosting a party. Guests will always be happy to have something to nibble on, and it’ll keep them from raiding your kitchen cabinets.
Whatever snacks you choose, make sure they’re something that you enjoy as well so you can snack along with your guests!
