It’s the small, thoughtful details and personal touches that make your guests feel welcome — whether it’s keeping a bag of their favorite coffee in your kitchen pantry cabinet, or leaving extra blankets at the foot of the bed. When it comes to creating a home away from home for your friends and family, the guest bathroom is no exception. This holiday season, be a gracious host with these festive tips to prepare your bathroom for holiday guests.
Keep your bathroom cabinetry fully stocked for overnight stays.
Have you ever gone on a trip only to realize you left your toothbrush at home? When preparing your bathroom for overnight visitors, make sure your bathroom cabinetry is fully stocked with essentials, including toothbrushes, toothpaste, dental floss, bars of soap or unscented (or mildly scented) body wash, shampoo, conditioner, moisturizing lotion, a hair dryer, and extra rolls of toilet paper. Modern bathroom vanities are designed for storage, so you can keep these items neatly behind closed doors or in a woven basket placed on the countertop and tied with a holiday bow.
Fresh, fluffy towels and robes give a warm winter welcome.
If your guest towels have been sitting in the linen closet for some time, they could be smelling stale. Take them to the laundry room to wash and dry. If you find your existing towels are looking dingy, it may be time to replace them before holiday guests arrive. White towels are neutral and always look fresh, or choose towels that compliment your color scheme. For an extra festive touch, purchase towels in colors and themes that celebrate the holiday season. Be sure to install bath hardware for extra bath towels, as well as hand towel rings and robe hooks. Having robes on hand for guests is a nice gesture and will be appreciated in the cold winter months.
Deck the halls — and the bathroom, too.
Don’t ignore the guest bathroom or powder room when decorating for the holiday season. Instead, give your bathroom a merry makeover! Whether it’s a pretty poinsettia on the countertop of your bathroom cabinetry or festive hand towels, your guests will appreciate your attention to detail. While you’re at it, be sure to swap out your usual liquid hand soap for a holiday scent, such as warm cinnamon, pumpkin spice, gingerbread, or peppermint. If you prefer bars, shop holiday markets and Etsy for decorative, hand-crafted bars of Christmas soap that add to your holiday decor.
