Discover how you can prepare your house for holiday guests in four simple steps.

It’s that time of year again. The familiar jingles are blaring throughout shopping malls, and the evergreens are pruned and aglow. The most wonderful time of the year is also the busiest time of the year, and often your home sees more visitors than average. Discover how you can prepare your house for holiday guests in four simple steps.

Mark the Calendar

If friends or family are planning to visit your home this year, confirm the date and time of their arrival. This can help you better prepare for their visit, as your holiday season is bound to be busy. Planning also helps to avoid the possibility of double booking your guest room.

Get Rid of the Clutter

Clutter builds up naturally during the holiday season. Between presents, wrapping paper, and winter jackets, there doesn’t seem to be enough space for your a visitor. Start cleaning your house by putting away the clutter. Designate a closet for coats and finish wrapping your gifts so you can place them nicely under the tree.

Stock Up on Necessities

Ensure that you have enough towels and linens for your guests before you arrive. Consider purchasing miniature bottles of shampoo and conditioner so your guests don’t have to bring their own. Extra toiletries, such as razors and soap are also a nice thing to have on hand.

Add a Special Touch

You may not be a bed and breakfast, but that doesn’t mean you can’t provide your guests with a little slice of heaven. Incorporate a festive theme into your guest’s bedroom, and place a few flowers or foliage on the bedside table.
