“I am still learning about caring for my home. If you can’t do it yourself. Then find good service people and treat them well.” — Terry (mom to our Human Resources Coordinator, Louisa)
Raise your hand if you grew up with a mom (or another parental figure). Who was constantly reminding you to clean your room. Often, our earliest memories of figuring out how to tidy up and take care of our homes are with our moms—they taught us how to do laundry, how to do the dishes, and how to make our beds. So it should come as no surprise that when we asked our moms for their best homekeeping advice, they came back with some great tips.
Most agreed on a few major themes: it’s important to make sure everything has a home, that you put things back when you take them out, and that your home is an inviting, relaxing place to come home to—and invite others to.
Here are a few more tidbits on keeping your home inviting to your guests:
Let your front door and entryway set the inviting tone first- Let’s not forget to remember the impact of curb appeal; to your home. When you walk in it should feel comforting. So a bright clean welcome mat can do wonders.
Make accessability to seating arrangements easy. I should need to explain this one guys.
Make a combination of colors and design; create a inviting space for everyone. Consider a guest’s first view of your space and pay special attention to designing the farthest point of that view.
These are just a few ways to help make your home more inviting to others.
