An inviting home will beckon visitors and will linger in their minds long after they have left. It will make their stay enjoyable and memorable, while helping them to feel at home. When your home becomes inviting to guests, it will also be more inviting to you, making it a happy place to be.

1. Focus on the front view

Think about what your visitors will gaze at first in your space, and pay attention to that place. You could add some paintings, fun lighting or a piece of art, floral or really anything else that will catch attention.  Having this type of feature will pull your guests into and through the time, to create the feeling that they would like to stay for a while and get to know your space.

2. The Front Door Should be Inviting

This is your restriction call, and don’t take it for granted. If your old mat is well used, go out and buy a new and bright welcome mat and a cute sign by the door. On the inside, place a large green leafy plant by the door if you have the room. Bringing the outside in is an instant way to keep your guest happy.

3. Furniture Should Be Easy to Navigate

When you are alone in your home, you may not be averse to moving a chair in order to navigate around a table, but guests will feel uneasy in an area in which they are not sure how to traverse. This is a common theme in smaller homes. Navigating from the front door to the sitting area to the kitchen and to the bathroom should not be met with any hindrance.

4. Have a particular Piece of Furniture

This is something to be done if most of your furniture has been purchased from a large retailer. Personalizing a piece of furniture will make your house feel more like a home. It will bring your personality into the room and will no doubt be a conversation piece for your guests, making them want to stay for a while.

5.Have your own unique Design settings

A home that feels like you is full of small details that show your personality. Even small details will make the space feel full and sophisticated. It is durable, versatile, long lasting, and easy to maintain. so don’t feel limited to just the inside.

6. Always keep your space smelling fresh

Inviting smells or neutral smells are the way to go – just don’t have any bad smells. Remove any obvious culprits like dirty laundry, rotting fruit, and the like. Dirty dishes and a garbage disposal are a few likely culprits as well. Don’t just cover the odors, remove them and then replace them with something like a fragrant plant or candle.

7.Maintain a clean bathroom

A bathroom should be clean, and it should smell good with a subtle air freshener. There should be plenty of toilet paper and a hand towel for guests to dry their hands. Plenty of soap should be available for the duration of the time guests will be around.

There should also be a garbage can with a bag in it for any female sanitary items that need to be thrown away a lot of single men overlook this detail and it can make for a quite uncomfortable lady friend.

Having a home that is appealing to visitors will make you less anxious about having company, allowing you to relax and fully enjoy their presence.

Your home doesn’t have to be sterile, it just needs to be inviting and have the small details needed to bring your guests in, both literally and figuratively.
