How to Get Your House Ready for Entertaining Guests

by / Friday, 04 January 2019 / Published in Latest Blog Entries - Stanley Homes Inc.

Entertaining friends and family in the comfort of your own home is a great way to have a good time. You can play any music you want, eat whatever you want, cook or order in, drink as much as you want and have awesome conversations.

Entertaining guests in our homes is something that all of us have to do at least once, and just like any other event, you have to plan it in an organized manner and make sure your house is party-ready. Whether it’s for a birthday, anniversary, a holiday, or simply a get-together, here are some tips you can follow to make sure your house is ready to entertain guests:

  • Make sure your house smells great

This may sound simple, but many people forget about it. It’s easy not to notice any funny smell in your own home, even if it simply doesn’t smell very fresh, without any foul odor. Before your guests come over, make sure to open up your windows to let some fresh air in. Spray some air fresheners, light some scented candles or use a reed diffuser to create inviting scents in your home.

  • Keep the clutter away

You don’t have to deep clean your home if you don’t have the time. Simply putting away the clutter and keeping surfaces clean will do the trick. Make sure to wipe your countertops and tables and keep them dust-free. Clear your tables and couches and remove any clutter you see and make sure your sink is empty. Remember to fluff the pillows in your living room as well.

  • Make sure your bathroom is stocked

A dirty bathroom is one of the most unpleasant things you can encounter as a guest in someone else’s home, so make sure you clean your bathroom at all costs before your guests arrive. Remember to empty the trash can, clean the mirror and restock the toilet paper as well as hand towels. Keep it smelling fresh too by lighting a scented candle.

  • Make sure lighting suits the mood

Lighting is an important factor in creating the mood for your party. Instead of switching on all the overhead lights, keep your lamps on and light a few candles. These create a warm, intimate environment where your guests will feel more comfortable compared to having white, bright lights.

  • Don’t forget the perfect playlist

Finally, don’t forget the music. Have the perfect playlist ready depending on the kind of party you are having and the kind of guests you’re having over. This completes your to-do list, and you can enjoy with your friends and family!
