Christmas is often a time when we invite friends and family into your home, to celebrate with us. However, unless you are appropriately prepared for this massive change in living conditions the experience of having house guests can start to stink after a while. Luckily, you can avoid any unpleasantness both for you and those that are staying with you if you following the advice on the issues below. Read on to find out more.


One of the biggest issues that you can encounter when having guests stay in your home is that there are more people in the same old space that your family is used to. Of course, this can make things seem crowded and even oppressive after a while, especially if there is nowhere that you or your guests can go to get a break and some privacy.

To that end providing house guest with an actual room to stay in is essential, even if you have to move the rest of the family around for the duration. Otherwise, you can much more easily get on each other’s nerves, and this can lead to the creation of more significant problems like an argument and even fallings out!

Temperate control

Another major issue that hosts and guest can clash over is the temperature that they like the home to be. Especially if one party likes things to be warm and the other prefers out to be cool.

Luckily, there is a solution that can work for everyone, and it’s to ensure that the AC and heating pumps in each room of your home are working effectively. Then your guest will be able to have control over the temperate of the room you give them, and so be much more comfortable.

Of course, to guarantee that this can happen, its best to get an ac service from a professional company well ahead of the date that your guests are due. Then if there are any problems, you will have plenty of time to get them fixed.


Meals can be another seemly minor issue that can create big problems when your home if full of house guests. After all, even if you get all the dietary requirements right like gluten intolerance, low carb, vegetarianism, and allergies, there is still no guarantee that everyone will actually like and enjoy what is put in front of them!

Happily, you can solve this problem by getting organized ahead of time and checking what every food preferences are. You can then use this to write a schedule of meals, which can help you shop more efficiently and make sure that no one ends up feeling left out or ignored!

End dates

Finally, when it comes to house guests, we all know that the experience can start to stink after a few days. That is why it’s crucial that you have a definite end date to their visit.

To mark this do something special like have a party or go out for a meal, and remember to repeatedly talk about it as the ‘goodbye or last night celebration.’ This should then ensure everyone leaves on a positive note, and that no one outstays their welcome!
