5 Ideas To Make Your Overnight Guest Feel At Home

5 Ideas To Make Your Overnight Guest Feel At Home

Guest will always come around. You can’t stop them even when they only stay for a few days. Mother-in-laws, siblings, friends, cousins and the ones who simply breeze in without informing are the ones you should expect in a typical Nigeria society. So, you have to make them comfortable as much as you can due to the stress of travelling. And there is more to making a room cosy or comfortable than simply providing a bed. This is essential if they are passing the night at your place. Below are some ideas on how to make your guest feel welcomed.

Prepare early

Some guests will inform you few days before they arrive that they are paying you a visit. If this is the case, you don’t want them sleeping in a random room. You should dedicate time to the bedroom. Ensure that the beddings are clean, there are enough pillows and the lightings are working.

Provide basic needs

You don’t want your guest always knocking on your door requesting for one thing or the other. Therefore, anticipate their needs and make provisions for them. They will need slippers for the bathroom, toothpaste, universal charger and other little things you may probably ignore that makes them comfortable.

Tell them what they need to know

For close and very familiar guests, you should tell them what they need to know about your home. Inform them what they need to do when there is an emergency as well as places that are out of bounds. In addition, depending on the type of guests you may share your Wifi password with them.

Consider the morning after

The morning after is important because your guest may want to leave very early. So, ensure there is running water, a new bar soap and towel. Also, this will help you get their breakfast ready as soon as you can especially if the guest informs you that he is leaving in the morning.

Think like a hotel

Your guest will not pay you for staying in your house unlike when he stays in a hotel. So, some guests won’t mind being given the same treat just like when they stay in any hotel. So, if you think like a hotel, you will provide everything they want. As a caveat, don’t overdo things. The rule of thumb should be classy with little or no extravagance.

In some naked dreams, the dreamer is simply going about his or her own business, commuting to work driving in the car, walking around the neighborhood, etc. In many cases, the dreamer is completely unaware of his or her nakedness and not at all bothered by it.

In other cases, the dreamer is aware of his or her nakedness but no one else seems to notice at all.

Often the dreamer has fears that he or she worries may be uncovered. Dreams in which no one but the dreamer notices the nakedness are often indications that the fears bothering the dreamer are unfounded, and …
