How To Prepare Your Home For Guests This Christmas

One of the best parts of the Christmas season is spending time with family and friends but having guests to stay over can cause a lot of stress during the festive period as you look to make everything perfect for your guests and loved ones. However, with a little bit of forward planning you can ensure their stay is enjoyable for both yourself and your visitors. Birlea furniture are here to help you every step of the way with a simply yet effective “to do” list…

One of the main aspects to prepare for is of course where your guests are going to sleep. If your guest room is full of clutter, then it’ time for a tidy. By decluttering and simplifying your spare room your guests will feel welcomed and at home. Remember to make sure you get rid of anything that shouldn’t be there – both big and small. Once done you can get straight to the styling!

If you’re preparing for more than one guest coming to stay, but only have a small spare room, then fear not, because a guest bed is a great solution for accomodating multiple guests, but also easy to fold-up or roll out and store day-to-day. The Lyon Day Bed (pictured below) is a great example of this – it can be used as two single beds, or can attach together to create a double bed.

Soft sheets are a must along with perfectly plump soft pillows and duvets (Remember how important it is to have a good night’s sleep).

Bedside tables and wardrobe space is just as important to help make your guests feel at home during their stay. If space allows, you can also add a nice relaxing chair and a reading lamp also.

If your wanting to make their stay extra special and comfortable then we’ve also got you covered. One important aspect of having guests is by adding those small luxurious items which will make the experience even more special. Add white bathrobes and slippers to give your guests that luxurious hotel feeling (Afterall they are guests!) and add a little chocolate too.

If you don’t have a spare bedroom, don’t worry! You simply have to be clever with the space that you have and the furniture that you choose and there’s no better solution than a sofa bed. Now day’s sofa beds can be a centre piece to the living room but with a hidden secret – It transforms into a bed! The Birlea range of Sofa beds like the Ethan Sofa Bed are the perfect solution for transforming a room from day functionality to night.

It’s important not to choose a design that will date too quickly or look out of place that why this Ethan sofa bed is the answer. Its neutral grey design will add a high-end touch to any home, regardless of how you decide to style it.

The practicality of a sofa bed makes it an important investment piece; you get two for the price of one, without compromising on comfort or style but don’t forget you’ll still need bed linen and fresh towels.
