Hosting the family for Christmas this year?

Clear the clutter

Ensure the bedroom and bathroom that your guests will be using is clean. First, tackle the surfaces, wiping everything with a cloth and then do a quick vacuum around the room to spruce it up. Wipe down any mirrors and run a mop or over tiled floors. Finally, open the windows and air the room for an hour.
Sleep in style

A comfy bed is an essential ingredient for a good night’s sleep - nobody wants sleep-deprived guests come Christmas morning! Everyone loves that fresh sheet feeling, so give your guests a treat with some new clean, crisp bed linen. Opt for a plain snowy white or neutral set and dress the bed with some colourful cushions to add interest. Don’t forget to include a soft knitted throw or faux fur for added coziness.
A little bit of pampering

Place some fresh towels (make sure you provide one large bath towel, a hand towel and a washcloth per person) and a selection of indulgent travel-sized toiletries on the end of the bed for the ultimate hotel-style finish. Don’t forget the essentials too – a spare toothbrush and some cotton pads never go amiss.
Be sure to leave your guests plenty of storage space so they can unpack properly. Because who likes to live out of a suitcase? There is still time to order furniture from us before Christmas - our last day for guaranteed delivery for all in-stock furniture is 5pm on the 17th December.

Flowers are a great way to keep a room looking fresh and vibrant. A container with hyacinths are the perfect choice, if you're looking for low maintenance.
No guest bedroom is complete with a mirror. This Mayan Walnut mirror has a satin lacquer protects the frame from scratches and dents and its clean lines and classic design ensure it will never go out of style.

Ramp up the brownie points with scented candles and some tissues. If the room is on the bright side in the morning, leave an eye mask out.
