Holiday season is in full swing, which means hosting season is, too. But before guests check-in to su casa, you should do two things, test out their bedroom and bathroom. Here’s what to be on the lookout for. Spend a night where your guests will sleep. It might be a guest bedroom, it might be a fold-out couch, it might be an air mattress: Sleeping where your guests sleep can be an eye-opening experience if you haven’t done it before. You may learn that your pillows, while pleasant looking, are actually not too comfortable for snoozing, that your air mattress has a leak, that the room leans cold or hot. While some issues aren’t entirely fixable, you can address them to the best of your abilities by perhaps making a quick fix. You may also realize that your guest bedroom, while functional, just doesn’t feel super homey or cozy. You’ll also want to be mindful of various scents. For sleeping spaces, aim for clean and fresh-smelling but neutral. Take a spin through the bathroom to find out what works, what needs to be cleaned, and what guests should be warned about in advance. Maybe your toilet handle needs to be jiggled a few times after you flush, or the water won’t stop running; give guests a heads up about issues like this, or else they may think they caused the problem! Keep a plunger within sight of the toilet so that guests don’t have to sheepishly run to you should they have any plumbing problems. And be sure to stock up on toilet paper. Once you cross a bedroom and bathroom test run off your list, you’ll feel that much more confident in your hosting abilities and can kick back and enjoy precious time with loved ones.
