Got family and friends staying over at Christmas? then follow our five easy tips for creating that extra space to host your guests this festive season.
Creating a welcoming and comfortable space for guests during Christmas is a thoughtful way to make their stay enjoyable.
Here are five easy tips for creating space for guests to stay overnight at Christmas
1. Clean and Declutter
Before your guests arrive, clean and declutter the guest room. Clear any unnecessary items and create a clean, inviting space. Dust surfaces, vacuum the floors, and make sure the room smells fresh. Consider adding a scented candle or some potpourri for a festive touch.
2. Comfortable Bedding
Invest in comfortable bedding to ensure your guests a good night’s sleep. Fresh, clean sheets, extra blankets, and a variety of pillows with different firmness levels can cater to different preferences. Consider adding a festive throw blanket or holiday-themed accent pillows for a touch of seasonal cheer. Once your guests are done with pillows and throws try adding a blanket box/ottoman (like this Dunelm £32 velvet ottoman above) to store them all away, making extra space for your guests during the daytime.
3. Provide Storage Space
Empty out a portion of the closet or set aside some drawer space for your guests to store their belongings. This helps them feel more at home and organized during their stay. Consider adding hangers and providing an empty suitcase stand for easy access to luggage.
4. Accessories and Amenities
Add thoughtful accessories and amenities to make the space more comfortable. Place a bedside lamp for reading, and provide a small basket with essentials like tissues, water bottles, and snacks. Consider adding a festive touch with holiday decorations or a small Christmas tree in the room. For extra space adding baskets next to their beds can hold all of their bathroom essentials meaning nothing lying around looking messy.
5. Fold Out Sofa Beds
Instead of buying only a new double bed, how about purchasing a sofa bed with storage not only will guests have their bed, but they will also have a sofa to lounge on during the day plus with the extra storage space guests can put bedding inside and even clothing.
We hope our simple tips to get your guest room ready this Christmas ensure you have a stress-less Christmas.
