The holiday season is sure to bring a few guests to your home. It’s easy to spend an entire week getting your living room, kitchen and guest rooms ready because those will be the most “lived in,” but what about your guest bathroom? It likely needs some special holiday treatment, too!
The bathroom is often overlooked; giving your guests the basics is certainly generous, but anticipating their every need and even providing a little luxury will elevate your hospitality from accommodating to inviting, lavish, and cozy. Here are a few SampleHouse tips to make your bathroom (and home) guest-ready:
First things first: invest in a professional cleaning
The holidays are all about indulgence, right? This season, treat yourself to a professional house cleaning service before guests arrive. Taking this kind of stress off your shoulders will do wonders for your holiday spirit knowing that in just a matter of hours, your house will enjoy a deep cleaning. And you won’t have to snap on any rubber gloves. Even if you aren’t expecting overnight guests, having a clean house will help you focus on your family and not on the rogue dust bunny under the bookshelf.
Stock up on travel-size toiletries
This is simple. Head to your local pharmacy and fill your basket with an array of miniaturized versions of the basics. Make sure you get toothbrushes, toothpaste (regular and sensitive), mouthwash, etc. Make sure to advise your guests to use whatever they need during their stay!
Upgrade those towels
Nothing says “Welcome!” to your guests like adorable, and seasonal, paper hand towels for your guests. No need to spend money on expensive hand towels when you can buy a new pack for every season, holiday, or mood! If you’re feeling rather generous, add a bathrobe in a fun print to add a spa effect.
Focus on scents
We all know the holidays come with a whole mess of scents that are unique and memorable. Capturing these scents with items like candles, hand soaps, and moisturizers from SampleHouse will help bring that warm, inviting feeling into your guest bathroom and help your guests feel right at home. This will also convey your hospitality and zest for the holiday spirit.
