9 Tricks to make your home guest friendly

If you love having people over at your home often or if you love to be surrounded by your friends all the time, you need a guest friendly home. Everybody loves this kind of place, and your home will come to live day by day so you will also enjoy it even more:

1. Start with the couch

The most welcoming piece of furniture in a home, is the couch. It has to be big, comfortable, but not too precious. Nobody likes to sit on furniture that looks like it’s from a museum. It looks good, but many people are scared to not break it.

2. Place a great coffee table

Next to the couch add a cool coffee table filled with lots of useful stuff. The most important thing is the reading material. Pick magazines, photo albums and other great readings that can keep your guest busy, especially if you can’t attend all of them. Add also candles, flowers and of course, a great set to serve coffee or tea.

3. Add a lot of mixed chairs

You have to have lots of different places to sit your guests. If you remember ”Friends” the mixed chairs were a fun solution for a dreamy home. Also, if you don’t have enough chairs, pillows are a great replacement for them.

  1. I think the most important thing is your point about being precious. Everybody appreciates great style, but nobody feels at ease in a place where a slip could lead to spoiling an incredibly expensive white sofa. Or a welcome cold drink leaves rings on a fancy coffee table. My sofas are white, but slipcovered and of a fantastic fabric that doesn’t hold stains (and they have gotten their share of spilled red wine, plus many other spills from visiting toddlers). We have coasters ready for the drinks. For overnight guests, make sure they can easily find things (like fresh rolls of toilet paper) and that you don’t have to go into their space if the guest room has a dual purpose.
