How to prepare your guest bedroom this Christmas
Christmas planning is not just about making Christmas cakes, ordering turkeys and shopping for gifts, it's also about getting your home ready for your festive guests.
As many of us have friends and relatives visiting us from all corners of the UK and overseas during the Yuletide season, we want to make sure our bedrooms are ready for overnight guests. And as it's such a special time of year, now is an ideal time to build in some Christmas holiday sparkle to your guest room preparation.
Have a look at our tips to get your room ready for your winter visitors.
Not just at Christmas, but when you are expecting guests all year round, it's a good plan to make sure you have all the essentials in stock. When travelling it can be easy to overlook packing your toothbrush or shower gel, so make sure you have a small supply of soaps, toothpaste, brushes and clean, fresh face towels in your guest room or en suite.
On the subject of bathroom supplies, don't forget to leave on the bed or in the bathroom some clean fresh towels. Guests often don't bring their own towels, so you will need to have some at the ready, ideally some large bath sheets and hand towels too.
