With the kids off school, it officially marks the beginning of summer for many families. And with summer here, that means plenty of comings and goings, and lots and lots of visitors. Between grandparents, friends, sisters, brothers, you name it, they’re coming to stay.
But you don’t have to bend over backwards to be the host with the most, in fact, there are a few simple things you can do, to create a welcoming atmosphere for your guests, to ensure a wonderful stay at Casa You!
Comfort is Key
While there’s nothing that compares to your own bed, you’ll want your guests to feel comfortable in the room that they’re staying in. Invest in some good bedding for your guest room. This Silent Night Deep Sleep set, will ensure your guests will have a seriously comfy snooze. Including a 13.5 tog duvet for extra cosy vibes, a mattress topper for optimum comfort and a pair of medium-firm pillows, you’ll actually consider picking up a set for yourself. Check out our guide to creating the perfect guest room here!
It’s About Them, Not You
We mean this in the nicest way possible. Would you really look behind the wardrobe in a friend’s house for dust? And they won’t either! Stop worrying about how clean your home is, and focus more on them. Your guests are coming over to see you, not how clean or dirty your home is. Give the house a quick once-over with a hoover and a tidy up and you’re good to go.
Make Your House A Home
Is there anything worse than waking up in someone’s house at 2am, gasping for a glass of water? Give your guests that hotel vibe, by leaving a fresh jug of water and two glasses on the bedside locker. But don’t blame us if they find you so hospitable that they won’t want to ever go home!
Show Them The Ropes
We’ve all been there; in an unfamiliar shower, trying to get the right temperature like you’re performing brain surgery. While your shower may seem straightforward to you, it’s only because you’re so used to it. Does your TV have five different remotes for different functions? Show your guests how to use the essentials to avoid any confusion during their stay. Oh! And don’t forget to give them the WiFi password, because we all know, home is where the WiFi connects automatically!
