Choose a Bathroom for Company
Choose one bathroom to be your public bathroom. It is usually nearer the front door and can be spiffed regularly to keep it in good shape for company.
Walk into your chosen bathroom and take a good look. What needs to be stored elsewhere so this bathroom reflects the order you wish to acquire in the rest of the house (even if it isn’t going to happen today)? Are the taps shined and the counters cleaned? Is there plenty of toilet paper and a dusted windowsill?
Clean It Thoroughly
Go to work to make this area of your home appealing and appropriate for any who might need a bathroom break. Stock up on items your company might need including washcloths, towels, and toiletries.
Maintenance is Essential
Bringing the public areas of your home to a place of beauty and order might take a lot of initial work, but please don’t stop there. These areas need continual maintenance to be at their best. Depending on your stresses and other responsibilities, the public interior areas of your home should receive a high priority on a frequent basis. Surprisingly, just a few minutes at a time can return these areas to the beautiful state you brought them to during your recent assessment, cleaning, and beautifying.
Remember, a beautiful home is first an orderly one, second one with areas having a touch of warmth, and finally a home where company is welcome!
