Preparing for Guests with a Home Audit

When the holidays are on the horizon, you might panic as you realize how cluttered or unprepared your home is for guests. There is much to do, like ensuring adequate seating, planning a menu, and cleaning your house from top to bottom. 

But something that people often overlook is preparing the bathroom for your guests. Here’s a checklist to help you get your space holiday-ready:

Clean Thoroughly  

A guest bathroom usually sees a lot of traffic. You’ll want to ensure it starts sparkling clean. If you’re having overnight guests who will require a shower, give the bathtub a deep grout cleaning and stock it with fresh towels. Don’t forget about the toilet and wiping down the sink, too. 

Fresh Scents 

Once you’ve deep cleaned the bathroom, freshen it up with seasonal scented candles. This extra touch helps create a warm, welcoming environment. 

Provide Extra Toilet Paper 

Running out of toilet paper is awkward for anyone, especially when you’re a guest in someone’s home. Save your guests from embarrassment by keeping your bathroom stocked with extra toilet tissue. You can do this by placing a small basket beside or on the back of the toilet.  

Create a Toiletry Basket 

The space under your guest bathroom sink may be underutilized. It’s perfect for a toiletry basket. In the hustle and bustle of traveling, your guest may forget a necessity and will appreciate the extra effort you took. Consider placing the following items in your basket: 

  • Soap
  • Tissues
  • A toothbrush
  • Toothpaste
  • Feminine hygiene products 
  • A comb 
  • Razors and shaving cream 
  • Deodorant 
  • Shampoo and conditioner 
  • Hairspray 

Keeping a roll of paper towels in your guest bathroom may be helpful for unpredicted spills and other messes. 

Schedule Repairs 

If you need a tile replacement or grout repair, now is the time to schedule with a professional service company. These issues create an eyesore and can be a safety hazard if there are sharp or broken pieces of tile.
