When the holiday season is just around the corner we all have guests coming over to stay at our place. Here are a few tips that will help you to get your house guest ready.
Be Open with Them
Most of the firms don’t give a long vacation to their employees, so if you will be working on the days your guests plan on coming, it is important to tell them about your schedule. This is because they will be able to plan their vacation beforehand without relying on you to take them out. However, try to make time for them at least during the weekends.
Start With the Cleaning
If you are someone who has busy work schedules then you might not really be able to clean everything the last moment. So start with the cleaning process a week before the guests arrive. You could empty the cupboards in the guest room to make space for their clothes. Do a thorough cleaning session for their room this would include washing the bed sheets and vacuuming the room. You could keep fresh towels for them and fill their room which basic necessities such as hand wash toothpaste shampoo and conditioner. Keep in mind that if you provide them with the above items then they will not be disturbing you for anything.
Keep It Simple
Sometimes people get super excited that they will be having guests over and they go a little overboard. For example they would invest in things like new valances and buy new carpets. This is wrong, infect if you want the guests to be comfortable then you need to keep it casual, you don’t have to spend extra just to look rich. However, you might have to spend on necessary items for example you might have to include extra snacks on your grocery list so the guests will have something to munch on for their late night snacks. If they will be staying with you for a long period of time then you both could pool in money for other items such as sanitary napkins and other personal items which they might require.
Plan Things with Them
If your guests have come for a holiday, then apart from your house you will also need to look into things which will keep them entertained. For example, if they are visiting your country or city for the first time then it is your duty to take them for site seeing and suggesting to them the places like theme parks and shopping malls. You could try to join them too, that is if you get off early from work. However, going out every day can be expensive especially if your guests have come for a long vacation. In this case, you can keep it simple. You could plan on picnic dates with them where kids could play at the park and you could pack in some home-made food which will save your restaurant bills.
Lastly, make sure you stick to the budget of the guests. So before you plan on doing different activities such as going for theme parks, make sure you tell them about the cost to avoid misunderstanding in future.
