Having friends and family stay with you is made a little easier if you get prepared and helps everyone relax. Here are 5 tips to make guests feel welcome in your home.
1. Wifi Access
Make guests feel at home by giving them access to your wifi. Display your network and password where they will easily see it. Print a copy of my free printable and display in a photo frame - too easy! Get your copy at the end of this post.
2. Think like a hotel
While you may not be offering room service, it's all those little extras that make staying at a hotel so much fun. Giving guests fresh fluffy towels is a must, leaving mints on their pillow is totally optional :)
3. New Amenities
Replace all your half used bathroom amenities. Refill the hand soap, put out a new bar of soap, new toilet roll etc. No one wants to use half empty stuff. This tip I got years ago from a tour Oprah gave of her apartment, and what she did when guests were staying there.
4. Everyday items
Show guests where you store your drinking glasses, coffee, tea and sugar etc. Make it easy for them to help themselves to refreshments as needed. No one wants to be a burden on their host or constantly ask where stuff is, so let them be self-sufficient.
Sometimes you just want to vege out and watch some TV. So give guests a quick run down on how to work your entertainment system and setup guest access to your Netflix account. Leave a few board games, books or magazines around that they may like.
Having guests stay should be fun for all and doesn't need to stress you out. If you have any other suggestions, feel free to leave a comment below!
