The holiday season is among us and that means you’ll be hosting lots of friends and family members over the next couple of weeks. You’re beginning to plan for the increase in occupancy and you’re wondering how to keep your home comfortable for your guests, right? Well, we’re here to provide you with a few tips and tricks!
Setting The Thermostat
The temperature of the house can quickly make guests feel uncomfortable, whether it’s too hot or too cold. Generally speaking, a temperature of 70°F – 73°F should be comfortable for most people, but it also depends on how many guests you’re entertaining.
You may want to consider lowering it a few degrees if you’re having lots of people over and if you’ll be using the stove or the oven for a while to prepare the food.
Getting Rid of Odors
Another thing that can cause your guests to feel uncomfortable is strong odors, whether they’re good smells or bad smells.
We suggest equipping your bathroom with a deodorizing spray and it’s always a good idea to leave your kitchen exhaust fan running while cooking. You may even want to crack open a window or door just a hair to allow some fresh air in.
Sleeping Safe & Sound
If your guests are spending the night, it’s vital to make sure they’ll be comfortable while sleeping. After all, a bad night’s sleep is a recipe for disaster the next day.
Keep some night lights handy in case they prefer some light if they need to use the bathroom in the middle of the night and it’s always best to have plenty of blankets — they can always choose not to use them if they get too warm.
