The holidays are a time of gathering with loved ones, but for homeowners playing host to family and friends, it can be a lot of pressure. From preparing food to making the home inviting, it takes time and effort to entertain. Here are some simple bathroom tips to get your place ready for guests this holiday season:
Do a Deep Clean. Before any guests arrive, you want to take some time to do a very thorough, deep cleaning in the bathroom. Dust, scrub, and polish every surface to make it as sparkling clean as possible. Even if your guests won’t be using the shower or tub, make sure that you scrub it, replace the shower liner, and toss the shower curtain in the wash to freshen it up. You may even consider hiring a professional cleaning crew to get your entire house in tip-top shape. Your guests will certainly appreciate a fresh, clean bathroom.
Stock Up. You will likely be making a trip or two to the grocery store to stock up on food, but don’t forget the essentials for a clean and comfortable home. Take a trip to the store specifically to stock up on toilet paper, hand soap, tissues, and paper towels.
You don’t want guests to run out of toilet paper, so place some extra rolls in an obvious spot. Refill the hand soap dispenser and open up a new box of tissues. Place a few freshly laundered hand towels in the bathroom.
Make it Homey. If you’re going to have overnight guests, then you want to make the guest bedroom and bathroom as homey and comfortable as possible. In addition to cleaning and restocking the basics, add a few extras, such as travel sized toiletries. Guests may forget to pack something simple like shampoo, toothpaste, or even a razor blade, so have items set out for them to use. Add additional touches in the room like fresh flowers, a seasonally scented candle, and plush bath robes or towels.
You want to make sure that your guests feel welcomed anytime of the year, but especially at the holidays when they’re traveling away from home. By following these bathroom tips, homeowners can make their place as inviting as possible for friends and loved ones.
