As Perry Como once said in his beloved song, “there’s no place like home for the holidays”, and it’s even better when yours is the home that all your loved one’s head to during the best time of the year to celebrate in the best company there is. Hosting such a lot of guests in your living space is always a challenge and it will become a seemingly impossible task if the needful is not done at the right time. The last thing you want is a bunch of frustrated house guests who doesn’t even have chairs to sit on, while you are running around in a frenzy to do the things you should’ve done ages ago. In this article we will be discussing about a few such things you should do before inviting your loved one’s over for the holidays.
Get the guest bedroom room ready
There will always be a few guests, or even families who’d want to stay at your place for a couple of days after the gathering due to various reasons. It is always better to keep the guest bedroom well maintained to meet such a requirement with ease and not put yourself or your guests at inconvenience. Start by checking whether the air conditioning Doncaster and heating are working properly and make sure the doors and windows are functioning properly to ensure the guest’s privacy during the stay. If the room hasn’t been cleaned in a long time, give it a thorough sweep, leaving no dust or dirt behind and run a vacuum through the floor. Then include everything from blankets to extra toilet paper to fresh pillow cases and don’t forget to include a few clothes such as sweaters and jeans in the cupboard.
Broken stuff can be a major headache during the holidays, when not only you but all the guests too will be inconvenienced by them. While it is possible to get some of the household items such as furniture, windows and doors fixed on short notice, most items will require a lot more of time and money, both of which you have very little during the holidays. For instance, to get your air conditioner fixed, you will have to contact an air conditioning service who will then take time to diagnose the issue with the unit and then some more time to fix the problem. The overall process is bound to take up a lot of time and it will be impossible to find someone for the job during the busiest time of the year. Therefore, make a list of everything that needs repairing and get it done as early as possible to avoid disappointment.
Plan the meals
Holidays and food are two words that often go hand in hand and it is your responsibility to make sure the holidays become a delicious experience for the guests. The first thing you must do is list down all the guests who will be joining you, so that you can prepare a variety of food that will be liked by everyone.
