Preparing Your Home for Guests
If you're expecting a visit from friends and family, it's important to create a welcome environment in your home. Whether guests are visiting for a day or two or staying for an extended time, you can do some simple things that will make them cozy and comfortable.
Create an Inviting Entrance
Creating an inviting entrance to your home will make your guests feel welcome before they even step inside. Start by mowing the front lawn and getting rid of any dead plants and debris. Once the yard is clean, plant some greenery or flowers along your front walkway to add touches of color to your home. Clean up your front porch by washing windows and doors, replacing light bulbs, polishing hardware, and sprucing up design appeal with new porch furniture and cushions from Phoenix area furniture stores.
Fill the House with Pleasant Scents
Since you're in your home every day, you may not smell unpleasant odors that may be obvious to guests. It's important to get rid of unpleasant odors and make your home smell fresh and clean. Many unpleasant odors start in the kitchen, so make sure you clean and empty trash. If you have pets, give them a bath and clean out cat litter boxes. Before your guests arrive, add fresh flowers, potted plants, scented candles, and potpourri throughout the house.
Spruce Up the Guest Bedroom and Bathroom
The guest bedroom will provide a private space where your guests can relax during their visit, so make sure it is cozy and comfortable with items from Phoenix area furniture stores. Provide enough clean linens, blankets, pillows, and bathroom washcloths and towels for the visit, without your guests having to ask for them. In the bathroom, leave fresh soaps and scented candles for your guests to enjoy. In the bedroom, you can add personal touches by leaving books or magazines to read, fresh flowers each day, and a fresh pitcher of water on the nightstand each night.
With just a little time, effort and money, you can make your guests' visit a more enjoyable, memorable experience. They will appreciate the effort you take to make their stay comfortable and inviting.
