Here’s What Your Guests Might Notice in Your Home:

I’ve just hosted a small party last weekend, as my family came over.

After making sure that I baked a lovely cake, I hung my pretty decorations on the wall. Obviously, I felt immense pressure to deep clean the whole house for my guests.

So I hadn’t planned to pick up a bunch of stuff, but actually, dust baseboards, consistently mop all the floors, and shine the stainless appliances.

Oh, and wipe down every bathroom until it smells like a garden during spring. I obviously didn’t want my family and their friends to think God-knows-what about my house.

However, I didn’t manage to do all that according to my plans. And still, it seems that everyone had a great time. Apparently, those who you invite into your home will never actually be as critical as you imagine them to be.

However, this doesn’t mean they won’t notice some stuff. But the question here is, naturally, what will they notice? After asking for a couple of opinions, I managed to gather a small list.

Don’t forget to let us know what you think in the comments section!

  • DUST!! Make sure all horizontal surfaces are dusted and if wood, they are polished.

    All tht is really necessary, in my opinion, is to have a clean bathroom and your bed made when guests are coming. I think guests are much more interested in the food they are offered.

    I have a very “homie” home. Everyone make some positive comment. It is VERY eclectic. The nicest comment I have ever received was from a 7 year old little girl who entering my house exclaimed: “WHAT A CUTE LITTLE HOME”. The house is around 4,000 sqf. : ))

    Good article and I enjoyed it, all good suggestions when you are having guests. For me, the first thing that hits me about someone else’s home is the smell. Dirty houses always smell like dirty houses; clean it up!
