It may seem like a difficult task to make your guests feel at home, but the key is a little warmth, a friendly smile, and a few extra touches here and there to make your guests feel at home. Here are our tips for being the perfect host for your guests
Top of the list is to tidy up the house. Thoroughly clean your home before your guests arrive, nothing says we forgot you were coming like a dirty home. Shop @home for a wide range of cleaning products to suit all your needs.
Next, it is important to have enough food and drinks. Stock the fridge with a variety of drinks and snacks your guest will enjoy. Making it easy for your guests to grab a quick snack or drink without bothering you is key to making them feel at home. Visit the @home Pantry for some delicious ideas.
If you know your guests are spending the night improve the bed. Make sure you have nice, clean sheets, plenty of fluffy pillows, and extra blankets. Tip: sheets on guest beds can start smelling stale when they go unused, for the perfect welcome wash the sheets before your guests arrive. Shop @home’s range of linen sprays for an added freshness to all your bedding
Your guests may be early risers or night owls so go ahead and provide some reading material. A small collection of magazines or even a book of short stories will make your guests feel welcome.
Your guests are going to want to freshen up, so provide them with new towels and toiletries. Just like a hotel bathroom, beautifully layout a few toiletries like soap, shampoo & conditioner, and lotion.
Have food and water in your guest room. Leaving a few bottles of water, snacks or fruit is an extra special touch. This way your guests don’t even have to leave their room for a midnight snack, to leave your guests feeling comfortable and right at home.
