3. A clean and tidy bedroom with plenty of fresh air

The bedroom is one of the most important spaces for the guests so you need to have the perfect bedding and adequate linen, especially for cold nights. Also put a folded up blanket at the foot of the bed, which will give the room a more elegant appearance and give extra warmth if need be.

4. The details

Add small details to the bedroom to show your guests just how much you appreciate their visit, whether it's a water bottle, a card, a chocolate or some fresh flowers. 

5. A safe bathroom

In addition to a clean bathroom, it needs to be safe and comfortable for your guests. Invest in a non-slip mat and a shower bench for the older guests. 

6. Extra towels in the bathroom

Sometimes when we travel, we forget items, which is why we recommend having spares of as many things as possible for your guests.

Have spare towels in the bathroom as well as extra toilet paper where they can find it. You may even want to include small toothpastes or disposable toothbrushes for your guests.

7. A bright kitchen with some food in the pantry

You don't have to have a pantry full of food, but have a few basics for them in case they get hungry such as bread, milk and eggs as well as come coffee and tea.

8. Be prepared for the number of guests you're expeecting

Make sure that you have estimated how many people will be visiting your house so that you can have more than enough food as well as enough chairs for everyone. You can also invest in a long bench, which guarantee that everyone has a place to sit – a modern and trendy element!

9. A drink to toast

At this time of year, it's natural that you'll be in a celebratory mood. Stock up the wine rack and make sure there are some snacks so that you can enjoy a lovely sun downer together before dinner and toast to the new year!
