3 Ways to Make Your Home More Hospitable
Hospitality is an art, in and of itself. Some people are natural at the art of hospitality, while others have to work at it. With the holidays coming, this quite possibly means more family get-togethers and more guests coming through your home. No matter how big or small the gesture, hospitality is something that goes a long way for your guests no matter where they originate from. Here are three simple ways you can make your home more hospitable, leaving your guests feeling loved and appreciated.
Declutter and Organize your home
Making sure your home is nice, clean, and tidy is one of the easiest and simplest ways to show your guests appreciation. You let them know that they are important by taking the time to make your home welcoming. Here are some ways you can do just that!
- Deep clean your home with some of our nifty Leifheit cleaning products.
- Storage Bins are also a great way to conquer cluttered spaces and to organize your home. Store your linens, loose papers, cleaning products, towels, and the like in these durable storage bins.
- Many of our cubed storage boxes are compatible with our Ashwood Furniture Collection and any other type of cubed furniture. This makes for convenient storage within your furniture.
Have a Spare Bedroom or Inflatable Bed- Clean and Ready to Go
If you have guests staying for longer than a day, have a spare bedroom or inflatable bed ready for them. Prepare your spare bedroom with the basics: a bed, dresser, and mirror. For an extra touch of hospitality, place some soaps, dental hygiene products, and towels for them to use.
If you only have space for an inflatable bed, make sure you have extra sheets and pillows on hand. For that extra touch, prepare a toiletry basket with all the toiletry essentials.
Have the kitchen tools to make amazing meals
Preparing a hearty meal for your guests takes time, the right recipes, and the necessary kitchen tools. Prep your kitchen with the right kitchen tools to make sure you are ready to whip up a meal at a moment’s notice. Whether you need a ceramic stone to bake a pizza or a Carafe to serve beverages, having these tools on hand will help you give your guests an unforgettable experience at your home.
Hospitality isn’t just the clean home or the perfectly cooked meal. It is also the attitudes, the laughter, genuine interest in your guests. It is sitting for hours and spending quality time together simply because you enjoy each other's company. Even if someone is hard to get along with, showing hospitality is the most selfless and honoring thing one can do.
Great hospitality paired with a genuine love and interest for your guests go a long way.
