You’ve finished moving into your TriBridge apartment; the walls are decorated and the furniture is arranged to your satisfaction. Everything feels homey and comfortable, and now you want to invite friends to your place for the weekend. Before you do so, however, you might want to make sure your apartment is fully prepared to give your guests a comfortable experience, especially if this is your first apartment.
Make Sure Guests Have a Place to Sleep
Futons are a great piece of furniture for an apartment because they pull double-duty as couch and bed, and are generally a lot lighter weight than hide-away bed couches. If you don’t have a futon or a bed couch, an air bed is a great space-saving solution. Just make sure you plan to give it time to fill with air before your guest wants to sleep!
Have Extra Towels, Extra Sheets, and Extra Toiletries
You’ll need an extra sheet set that fits your guest bed; you wouldn’t want to make your guest sleep directly on the mattress! Having extra towels is also a must; towels take up a lot of space in a suitcase, so don’t make your guests pack them. Extra toiletries are not something you necessarily need to provide, but it is a nice thing to do in case your guest forgets to pack something.
Prepare the Bathroom
Aside from the standard cleaning routine, there are a couple of things you should make sure your bathroom has available in order to prevent any awkwardness for your guests. One thing a lot of people forget to do is provide a plunger; clogs happen from time to time, and it can be very embarrassing if the guest has to ask for your help with a backed-up toilet. You should also make sure your bathroom has a trash can, pump soap, and hand towels. Please, don’t make guests use your shower towel to dry their hands.
