Hosting friends and family in your apartment should be a breeze.

Having everything in order ahead of time is a sure way to make it fun and easy when company arrives. Here are a few tips to prepare your apartment for company.



This is one of the best things that you can do to prepare your apartment for company. Clean up small messes, like papers, magazines, and anything else that may be lying around looking messy. Find interesting ways to store things that usually cause clutter. This will not only add room to your apartment, but will also give the whole space a more cleanly look.



After you put away any clutter, it's time to give your apartment a good clean. Sweep the floor, vacuum the carpets, dust the shelves, and clean the mirrors. Don't forget to also make sure that the kitchen and bathroom are sparkling. Try cleaning without chemicals by going natural.


Make it smell fresh

Even if your apartment smells great to you, there may be lingering smells that your nose is unaware of. We often become accustomed to smells in our apartment, especially when there are pets that live there. Make the apartment smell fresh by adding candles or plug-in oil diffusers. Adding fresh flowers is also a great way to make your apartment smell effortlessly clean. 


Stock the bathroom

Put a fresh bar of soap in the soap dish, or fill up the liquid hand soap dispenser. Make sure that hand towels are clean, and there is spare toilet paper rolls around. If your company is staying the night, stock it with extra toiletries like a toothbrush, a bar of soap, shampoo, and razors. 


Create a cozy space

Turn your living room into a cozy lounge space to make your company feel comfortable. This can be done by adding extra pillows on the sofa, having a throw blanket on hand, and placing coasters on the coffee table. Also check the lighting in the room, and purchase an inexpensive floor lamp if needed.
