It’s that time of year again when friends and family gather together to give thanks and celebrate the Holidays. At the Atlantic, the decorative lobby is sure to instill cheer in those who pass through as will the excitement of sharing the jaw-dropping views from your home with your visitors. Often entertaining folks from out of town, it is also the time of year when an often-overlooked guest room slides into the forefront and is put in the spotlight. Seemingly obvious touches are often breezed right by when the hustle and bustle of the season transpires. There are little steps that can happen now to make sure you’re prepared and sure to impress.
While you may think your spare room is ready for use, make sure to give it a good cleaning before hosting. Dust often collects on furniture and under the bed which can have a negative effect for those with allergy sensitivities, especially if there are pets in the home. Decluttering is also key to lead to a more relaxed, tranquil state of mind. This will also leave room for luggage and personal items you guest may be traveling with. The benefits of this can be two-fold as this is also a great opportunity to clear out items you may be holding on to that would be excellent donations to those in need. Ensure your linens are freshly washed and that there are ample extra blankets and sheets if needed. Be sure to double check any lighting, especially bedside lamps that have not been used in quite some time, and make sure all bulbs are in working order.
Moving on to the bathroom, it is never a bad idea to have extra toiletries for guests, as we all know the feeling of leaving town forgetting everyday items. Some basics to stock up on are toothpaste, toothbrush, shampoo, conditioner, soap/body wash, razors, moisturizer, feminine hygiene products, and a hair dryer. Of course, these items can be tweaked to cater to your specific guest, but the thoughtfulness and preparedness is sure to make a great impression. With the convenience of being so close to Publix and Target, it won’t be the end of the world if something is forgotten, but being prepared will help you maximize your time with loved ones.
With many homes having advanced technology and “smart” features, it is a good idea to compile a list of any passwords, alarm codes, and instructions for use to provide for your visitors. If any additional keys need to be made, go ahead and knock this out ahead of time to ensure no one is left hanging. If staying for an extended period of time, it would be a helpful to put together suggestions of things to do in Atlantic Station and surrounding neighborhoods.
