However, it’s not too late to do a few things to welcome your guests before they arrive and ensure they feel welcome and comfortable in your home. By going that extra mile and adding in a few details, they’ll know just how much you care and how much you value the time spent with them. Keep reading to find out 3 ways to make your home guests feel more welcome in your space:
- Get Prepped: There is nothing worse than rushing around the house, trying to get things done before your guests arrive. Avoid this crazy routine by getting prepped ahead of time, especially when you know your guests arrival date. This could mean anything from preparing a room for your guests, making sure linens are washed and ready or having enough to food to entertain your guests for the duration of their stay. By prepping ahead of time, you will maximize the time spend with your guests and you’ll have to work a little less harder with a few tasks done ahead of time.
- Plan Ahead: Planning ahead for your guest can make all the difference when it comes to ensuring they have a good and comfortable stay. By taking the time to add in small details such as fresh flowers, small toiletries or even light refreshments such as bottled water, it truly shows how much you care for your visitors. This is also a great time to make sure your guest has access to home items such as the WIFI password, home alarm code and any other house secrets your visitors may not know on arrival.
- Provide Comfort: Last but certainly not least, makes sure your guest or visitors have somewhere cozy to settle into. Whether that is a pull out couch, guest bedroom or a simply mattress you can make it feel comfortable by adding in extra blankets and pillows. Make sure to give all the bedding and extras a good wash before and after your visitors leave and you will ensure your guest has a comfortable rest and a great night’s sleep.
