5 Ways To Get Your Bathroom
Ready For The Holidays
Thanksgiving and Christmas are coming up. From November to January just about every room in the house, including the bathroom, will be occupied with family, overnight guests and dinner guests. So when you start your holiday prepping, don't overlook the bathroom. Here are 5 ways to get your bathroom ready for the holidays.
Friends and neighbors often drop in at a moment's notice to give you a holiday gift or baked goods, so your bathroom and the rest of your house should be ready for surprise visits. To do a quick cleaning, make sure you keep things maintained for a fast cleaning turnaround. Prune your medicine cabinet of any items no longer needed, clear out any toddler toys, keep the countertops clean and organized, and make sure you have cleaning supplies under the sink. If you keep the bathroom tidy, when guests drop by unexpectedly, all you have to do is a quick wipe-down with a disinfectant cloth and a cursory sweep of the floor and you'll be ready.
Decorate With Green
Plants are an easy way to spruce up the bathroom any time of year, but around the holidays, there are so many more options for bathroom foliage. If you have plants in your bathroom already, you can give them holiday accents by wrapping the base with tinsel, holly or putting in holiday figurines. If you don't have plants already, lay out evergreen branches or garland on unused counter space or put small poinsettias in spare corners.
A quick refresh to welcome guests and a bathroom renew for you is to use matching holiday linens. With snowflakes on the shower curtain, hand towels and soap dispensers, the bathroom has festive style and gives you a break from your everyday linens. For guests, you can take the theme a step further and match the bathroom accessories to the sheets and quilt for the guest bedroom.
There are so many scents associated with the holidays, but shampoo and conditioner don't make the list. Putting in a cinnamon candle, a tart warmer with clove tarts or a bowl of holiday spice potpourri will steep the bathroom in festive aromas. It will be a pleasant surprise for any dinner guests, overnight company or drop-in visitors that come your way for the holidays.
The bathroom is one of the most-used rooms in your home. When guests visit, chances are they'll use the bathroom. Don't get caught off guard! Get your bathroom holiday-ready!
