Preparing for Holiday Guests

With the arrival of spring comes the Easter and Passover holidays, along with the opportunity to update and refresh your bathroom before guests arrive. Ensure your room is clean and freshly decorated, then let the season’s light brighten the area. Preparing for holiday guests is essential when welcoming people into your home.

Throw open the shades or curtains and allow both natural and indoor light to illuminate the space if possible. An easy way for preparing for holiday guests is to ensure light fixtures are clean and bulbs are bright. Then, consider a swipe of fresh paint to revitalize the room, making it feel clean and airy.

Begin your cleanup by removing all soaps and shower products, towels, washcloths and other linens from the bathroom and then empty the trashcan. Scrub the toilet, sink, vanity surface, and tub/shower area before wiping down the mirror and medicine cabinet and other shelving or storage. Dust overhead vents and then wipe the baseboards before sweeping and mopping the floor. When preparing for holiday guests in this manner you are not only making your guests feel welcome, but you are also getting some spring cleaning done.

If you use a shower curtain, either toss it and your towels and rugs in the washing machine or think about replacing them with a new update. For spring, a lighter choice such as a white waffle-weave, neutral or soft color curtains and coordinating towels and rugs are always a great choice.

Now, make it even more inviting by adding a vase of fresh cut flowers or a plant or two and some terrific spring scents with scented candles or a diffuser. Finally, to add a little luxury, invest in some special bath products and soaps with attractive season appropriate packaging.

However, with these simple steps in mind, you may realize that there is mildew or other stains that just won’t go away, a distinct lack of storage or light, or other signs that your bathroom may need to be updated. If so, remember that spring is a terrific time for renewal and updating your bathroom can add value to your home while making it better adapted to your needs.
