With the holidays right around the corner, have you decorated your home and prepared for your house guests yet? The saying runs true, the more the merrier. However, hosting a houseful of guests can be extremely stressful and expensive. Prepping for guests means there’s cleaning to do, meals to plan and cook, and entertaining to schedule. It’s no wonder getting the guest bathroom ready can slide down the to-do list. But your visitors will start and end each day there, so you want them to be comfortable. We’ve rounded up some easy ways to prepare your guest bathroom for the holidays!
Ensuring the bathroom is pristine and prepared for guests will make your company feel right at home. It’s time to hang fresh hand towels and put out the new hand soap near your sink. Guaranteeing you wipe any dirty areas in the bathrooms using household cleaner, especially the bathroom faucet, will make friends and family feel as though there was thought behind the invitation. It’s time to remove anything unnecessary from countertops, because if it’s out of sight, it’s out of mind, for now. ;)
How do you know when you should be replacing towels? In general, experts advise you should get new ones every two years. If it’s been two years, time to head to the store! And what better way to spread holiday cheer than by getting festive towels for your guests. It’s also a great idea to have a few sets of extra towels ready to go under your sink. This way, when your guests need to rinse off they’ll be able to have easy access.
If your faucet won’t stop dripping, looks a little rusty, something’s loose, then it’s time for a little upgrade(see our recommendations here.) According to the EPA, the average home’s leaks add up to almost 10,000 gallons of water waste each year. That includes leaky faucets. Not only will dripping faucets drive you crazy, they’ll also drive up your water bill significantly. Usually, faucets start leaking because the washer or gasket inside has worn out enough that it can’t be repaired.
Additionally, mold, rust, and other wear-and-tear can all accumulate and put your fixtures under a lot of strain. If you notice your pipes or fixtures looking rusted or damaged, then it might be time for an upgrade. Updating and renovating your bathroom can be a great way to improve the overall cleanliness of your home too.

Last, make a guest basket that’s inviting for your guests! Make sure to bring toilet paper, towels, and toiletries out of hiding, and place them on open shelves so guests can find them easily. It’s also nice to add extra toothbrushes and lotions for a special touch. When your guests are traveling near and far, this will be an added bonus when they enter the guest bathroom.
