How to Prepare Your Home for Out-of-Town Guests

Many people have relatives or friends who live in other cities, provinces or countries. You probably know what I’m talking about. It is always a wish that most of these relatives or friends visit you. Therefore, you must prepare your home to receive these guests if you want them and yourself to have a good experience.

You want your home to be as comfortable and accessible as possible for your guests. They come from far away to visit you and spend time with you.

You will have to prepare the bedroom for your guests. Cleaning the bedroom will be the first step. Wash the floor or carpet, vacuum the mattress, and wash bedding. Make up the bed or beds with clean sheets and covers that match the style of the bedroom. Clean the nightstand. Check that the bedside lamp is working and make sure there is a power outlet where your guest can charge their mobile phone. If there is any clutter in the bedroom, remove it and tidy up the entire bedroom. Clear out the closet so your guests have space to hang their clothes and pack their shoes while they stay with you. Have towels ready and get an extra hair dryer for your guests.

Make your kitchen easy for your guests to use. Pack your dishes and food carefully in the cabinets. Pack foods that will be used frequently toward the front of the pantry with the label facing forward. This way, it will be easy to find the food and your visitors will not have to search for anything or bother you if they cannot find what they are looking for. Also prepare a list of foods that you know your visitors eat frequently and go shopping for those items. Include some sweet and salty snacks to treat them. Keep catering equipment that they may use frequently on countertops for easy access. These appliances would include the kettle, toaster, coffee machine, and perhaps the blender. Show them where you keep the cutlery and crockery too.

When your guests arrive, show them around their bedroom and familiarize them with it. Then show them the kitchen and where they can find snacks, drinks, and other food-related items during their stay at your home. You want to make sure they feel comfortable and enjoy visiting you, so give them the royal treatment.
