If you’re looking for some tips on preparing your home for guests, look no further! Maison has a few tried and true steps for you to get your home Holiday ready. 


Get your guest rooms ready!


Preparing your guest rooms is the first step in ensuring that your guests are comfortable. Changing out bedding, washing any linens, and dusting are great ways to tidy up those spare bedrooms! Making room in the closet or dresser can be helpful as well, so that your guests have space to put away their things. If you have a guest bathroom, now’s the time to clean, organize, and freshen up that space as well! A good, deep clean is a great way to make sure that both your guest areas and the rest of your home is ready for visitors this Holiday season.


Prepare your dining space.


One thing that we love about the Holidays is the delicious food and drinks that seem to be never ending this time of year. Preparing your dining space to host and serve guests doesn’t have to be complicated! If your table has an extension, be sure to use that if necessary before guests arrive. Having enough seating, utensils, etc. may seem like a no-brainer, but with the busy nature of the Holidays it’s good to refresh everyone’s memory. With all of this in mind, make sure you have enough room to cook comfortably, as the host needs to be happy as well!


The small details go a long way!


Small details within your home like decorative towels in the bathroom and kitchen are what makes home, well, home. The personal details that you add to your home all throughout are what gives any space a unique, lived-in feel. Don’t be afraid to add some Holiday decorations to your guest areas or try new things this year! Guests are a great way to test out new decor and furniture as well. Seasonal soaps, room scents, and music can make any home feel like a Holiday getaway.  

Maison has family at its core, and that’s why the Holidays are our favorite time of year! Being in control of your space before guests arrive can help alleviate stress and make for easier planning overall. It’s the most wonderful time of the year, so don’t let hosting scare you! Whether you’re a seasoned pro or a newbie at having get togethers, these tips will help in preparing your home for guests. Stay tuned for more tips!
