If you want to be the host with the most, you’re going to have to put thought, time, and effort into making sure that your guests feel comfortable and at home within your four walls. If you’re accommodating someone, you need to be able to accommodate their unique needs and requirements in order for them to have a nice time! So, what can you do to make sure your home is a comfortable space for all of your guests? Well, here are a few steps to get you started out in the right direction!
If you have friends with physical disabilities, or if you just want to make sure you can always accommodate anyone within your home, you might want to consider ensuring that there is some sort of wheelchair accessible entrance in your property. Now, many properties will be fine, as the entrance is at ground level and wide enough to fit a wheelchair through. But if your door frames are particularly narrow, or you currently have to use steps to access your home, you might want to consider making some changes. Door frames can be changed to wider fixtures to let any form of wheelchair through. You can also invest in aluminium ramps, which will create a simple and safe route into your living space.
Dietary Preferences and Requirements
Sometimes your guests will be hungry. Now, the majority of us can eat pretty much anything, so any snack offered will do to fill the gap. But there are also many people out there with dietary preferences and requirements. Some people experience allergies or intolerances to particular ingredients, some people choose to avoid certain foods for religious reasons, and others will avoid particular foods for ethical reasons. It’s a good idea to make sure that you always have something stocked for people with more specific diets. Consider a few vegan snacks, gluten free snacks, and perhaps kosher or halal snacks too.
Show People Around
While you don’t need to introduce your guests to every room in your home, it’s still a good idea to give them some sort of sense of direction. Make sure that they know where the bathroom is, should they need to use it, and you can also introduce other spaces, such as the lounge or the kitchen. This will ensure that they know where they’re going if they need.
Offer the Wifi Code
Sure, your guests probably won’t be on their phones the whole time they’re in your home. But it’s polite to offer the Wifi code. This will ensure they can be contacted by other people who may need to get in touch with them, without them having to use all of their data. This is a tiny touch and it’s not the end of the world if you forget to offer it, but it’s generally much appreciated.
These are just a few steps you can take to give your guests the best experience of your home and spending time with you when they visit. They’re simple and easy to implement, so why not make the effort?
