It’s that time of year, a time for cheer, lights, trees and guests (and for some…lots and lots of guests). Although, there is a fine line between making your relatives feel too comfortable and making them want to rent a hotel room – the general rule of thumb is that it’s nice to make your home feel welcoming. If they ask to sign a room rental agreement, you can quickly turn this boat around.
Extra Warm Stuff
Make sure you have blankets, pillows and towels stocked in a nearby closet, be sure to show them their location in case your guest room is chilly.
If your guest room is away from the kitchen, it’s always nice to have a few bottles of water available for your guests in case they need a drink in the middle of the night.
Candles, room spray and lamps are always a nice touch in a guest room, as they add a little extra something to the comfort level of the room.
Be sure that there is access to lots of extras like a tooth brush, tooth paste, blow dryer, hair brush, comb, shampoo, conditioner, lotion, a razor and shaving cream. You can keep a basket for all of these things – just let your guest know they’re welcomed to use anything.
One of the best ways to make someone feel comfortable is to give him or her your Wifi password. You can write it with an erasable marker on a frame. You can decorate it by adding cute scrapbooking paper to the frame.
