The kids are headed back to school, which means that before we know it, it will be time to start decking the halls and planning for holiday guests. Do you have enough time right now to get a guest bathroom ready for holiday guests? Absolutely! You just need to get started on it right now. Depending on the type of work that you will need to do to get your guest bathroom in shape for visitors, you might need to dedicate a couple of weekends to it to get it done.
Whether you are having overnight guests or just a lot of guests coming in for a party, you will want to make sure that they are comfortable when visiting your home. During the holidays, your guest bathroom will likely see a lot more traffic than it sees throughout the rest of the year. By providing your guests with a place to relax and feel at home, you are doing more than just putting out the welcome mat – you are saying, “You are welcome in my home!”
Identify a Need
The best way to determine what needs to be done to make improvements to include with your bathroom remodel in New Bedford is actually to use the bathroom yourself over a weekend. Use it for everything, including showering, fixing your hair, applying makeup, shaving – whatever you would normally do in the master bathroom, do it in there. This will help you see how things are functioning, whether a sink needs to be repaired, a toilet needs to be replaced, or if you are ready to upgrade your old vanity to brand new all wood construction cabinets as part of a much larger bathroom remodel in Southeastern Massachusetts.
Create a list of all the things that annoy you that stand out, and start working on a plan for change. Also consider things from the guest’s point of view, such as a non-embarrassing way to show them where the spare toilet paper is located, where fresh towels can be found, and find creative ways to put out little extras and necessities. All of this will show your guests that you have gone above and beyond to make them feel comfortable and welcomed. If you plan on replacing an item, such as a vanity, consider where you would store these items in your freshly upgraded New Bedford bathroom vanities.
Cleaning & Stocking
Before the holiday or special visit, take care to clean the bathroom thoroughly. Not like you would for an everyday or weekend clean, but a seriously deep clean as though you were entertaining royalty. It will be noticed and appreciated. Stock the items that you planned on providing. Single day visitors should be provided with just the basics, such as extra rolls of toilet paper, an extra box of tissues, fresh towels in a basket, and seasonal handsoap. Make sure to decorate the space for the holiday as well and include a seasonal scented spray or plug-in device to keep the bathroom smelling sweet for your gathering.
For overnight guests, whether they stay one night, a weekend, or through a whole holiday visit, make sure to provide a bit more. Roll up large bath towels, hand towels, and washrags, presenting them in a welcoming way in a basket or on a shelf where they are easy to see. Include all of the little toiletries that one might expect, such as body wash, toothpaste, extra toothbrushes, shampoo, and conditioner. However, you can also go the extra mile and provide extras, such as a hairdryer, antacids, ear swabs, cotton balls, floss, disposable razors, and any other special toiletries you want to offer.
