Preparing your home for the holiday craziness


It’s (almost) holiday time! Are you prepared to play host?


We’ve compiled a few quick tips to help you prepare for holiday guests and gatherings, so your condo is show ready:


  • Refresh your guest room or den with new sheets, bedding, and pillows. Clear out the closet to make room for your guests’ clothes, luggage, and other belongings.
  • Invest in or replace guest towels, organise bathroom cabinets or linen closets, and stock the bathroom with toiletries such as toothpaste, shampoo/conditioner, fall-scented hand soap, and plenty of toilet paper.
  • Invest in extra dishes, cups, and napkins so you don’t have to rely on paper or plastic.
  • Deep clean the washrooms! A tidy condo is a welcoming one.
  • Create a self-serve coffee station. Some guests get up early, while others stay up late; make it simple for them no matter what time they get up.
  • Make a welcoming note. A handwritten note demonstrates your enthusiasm for your guests.


One of the joys of the holiday season is welcoming guests into your home, so make sure you’re prepared so you can enjoy your guests and stress less!
