Thoughtful Tips to Get Your Bathroom Guest Ready

familyPart of the fun of having a home, is sharing it with your friends and family. When guests come to stay, it's natural to want to do special things for them in order to help them enjoy their visit even more. When you're preparing for visitors, it's important to remember the items that are sure to make them feel welcome. Therefore, we've put together a list of ideas to help you prepare.

  • Clean and Declutter – Ensure that your bathroom is clean and shiny. If you're short on time or energy, it may be a great time to to hire a cleaning service to help.
  • Stock Up – Make readily available items guests might need, such as toothpaste, toothbrush, razor, cotton balls, extra rolls of toilet paper, and feminine supplies.
  • Stock the Shower Too – Add the essentials including a neutral-smelling body wash, shampoo, conditioner, and a gentle facial soap. Consider changing the showerhead for a rainfall type or massaging one for tired travelers.
  • Avoid Embarrassing Moments – Have a plunger and scrub brush readily available for their use.
  • Provide Pleasing Scents - Put out candles, soaps or potpourri and a small vase of fresh flowers.
  • Freshen Up – Switch out the old shower curtain, bath mat, towels and washcloths for fresh new ones. Look for thick, soft ones in a different color for each guest so everyone can identify their own.
  • Make it a Spa – Provide bath salts, body scrubs and lotions to make it luxurious.
  • Light it up – Ensure the room is well-lit, or consider providing an illuminated magnifying mirror. For an easy installation, the BROCKSTON® Illuminated Glass Mirror from the DECOLAV Matt Muenster Collection will spruce up any bathroom with minimal effort.
  • Keep Useful Tools at Hand – Stash a hair dryer and styling tools under the sink.
  • If Space is Available – Provision the room with a small trash can and hamper for their convenience.
  • Go the Extra Step – Hang a fresh, clean robe on a hook for their after-bath comfort.

You'll be proud that by providing your guests with a clean, well-lit room and by stocking it with items they might wish that they'd brought, you can help them enjoy a happy and relaxing visit.
