Prepping Your Home for Holiday Guests

Prepping Your Home for Holiday Guests

One of the best parts about the holiday season is seeing relatives and friends you only otherwise see via video chat during the rest of the year. When you have everyone coming over to stay with you during the holidays, you, of course, want to make them feel right at home and have everything they need. To make things a little easier, here’s what you should do:

Stock Up on Toilet Paper

You may not mind texting someone else to bring you a new roll of toilet paper because you didn’t realize the one in the bathroom was empty before you sat down, but your guests probably won’t feel comfortable doing so.

Buy plenty of extra toilet paper and keep several rolls in your bathroom for easy access.

Add Lighting Fixtures

First off, make sure your guests can navigate your home a night (without walking into furniture) by adding extra night lights and lamps in your hallways and living areas.

If you want to really go the extra mile as a host, swap out plain ceiling lights for ceiling fans. Not only do fans provide your guests with good lighting, but they can also help them control the temperature of the room they’re sleeping in — and keep your thermostat safe from fiddling hands.

Prepare Extra Linens

The last thing your guests want is to wake up shivering in the middle of the night, only to not be able to find an extra blanket. Stock a hallway closet with plenty of extra sheets, blankets, and pillows, and let all your guests know everything is there if they need it.

Check Your Detectors

One of the most famous parts of getting together for the holidays is the big dinner that takes all day to prepare. Be sure to keep your family safe and check your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors before you start cooking up a storm.
