With the festive season upon us, it is time to start thinking not just about gifts for your family and friends but welcoming them into your home. It is important to make your guests feel at home, giving them privacy to carry out their daily routine in peace and sufficient space for their personal belongings. It is usually a good reason for most people to have a thorough clean and tidy of the house prior to the arrival of any guests, it will no doubt need the same treatment when the festive period is all over.
If space permits and you frequently have visitors staying then having a guest bathroom is an added bonus meaning you don’t have to compromise on sharing the family bathroom with them. This could be in the form of a guest bedroom with en-suite to allow your visitors more privacy.
Regardless of the size of the room it is important that it is fit for purpose, which in this instance would include being easy to keep clean and user friendly. The guest bathroom doesn’t need to include a bath unless you really want it to, a shower enclosure is very convenient as your visitors probably won’t have much time for a soak with all the festivities. If there are space limitations an en-suite toilet and basin would suffice. Bathroom storage is essential for your guests to keep their personal belongings accessible and tidy during their stay as well as a heated towel rail to ensure towels are always warm and dry when they are needed.
