Just because your home is not large this does not mean that you can not have company. All it takes is a just a little bit of advance planning to organize it all. Even if you do not have an extra room you can find ways to make room for your guests.
Give up your room
Many families enjoy giving up their own personal room so hat their guests can use it. If you choose to do this, than you will want to make sure that they have all of the supplies they need. For example I like to place folded towels neatly arranged, and placed on the dresser for the guests. Each guest should have one bath towel, one hand towel, and a washcloth. You will also want to make sure that you put fresh sheets on your bed, and a beautiful bed spread as well. The idea is to make the room as cozy, and comfortable as possible for your guests. You will also need to take the time to clean out the closets as well. You can easily put your own clothes into your children’s room, or a hallway closet temporarily. You may feel a little misplaced for a few days but it is really worth it in the long run.
Cots go a long way
You of course always have the option of sleeping on an air mattress, or on the floor itself if the house is overly crowded. If however you do not want this for you or your guests, you can easily go with the cots instead. There are plenty of places like Wal-Mart that sell cots that can easily be folded away each morning.
Store items you don’t need
If you find that there are items in your home that will really make it appear smaller, and you don’t need them, store them. For example you can take the end tables out of the living room, and put them in the basement, or attic. A little bit of furniture rearranging is worth it to ensure that your guests are as comfortable as possible.
Stock the fridge
Making sure you have enough food is really one of the most important things when you are expecting house guests. Be sure to stock up on snacks, and organize your refrigerator so that everything is easy to find. Plan to shop at least a few days before your guests arrive so that you can ensure all of the food is as fresh as possible. Depending on how long your guests stay, you may need to go shopping several times while your guests are there.
