If you've planned a get-together in your home but you need some extra help getting your house ready for guests, this post can help make the process much easier.

How to Get Your Home Ready for a Party

So you're hosting a party in your home and you've got the food ready, activities in place, and guests arriving shortly, but you haven't had a chance to clean up. You may think there's no way you're going to get your house clean before your first guest arrives, but that's not true at all. With these simple tips, you can get your home ready in no time.

Make a List

Before you start cleaning in an unorganized manner, make a list of tasks to keep yourself on track. Decide what rooms will be used during your gathering and focus your attention solely on these rooms. If you have time when you're done with these spaces, you can move onto other rooms that likely won't even be seen by your guests. Once you have a list of rooms written down, develop a plan for each. For example, step into your kitchen and decide what needs to be done. Maybe you have some dirty dishes in the sink, crumbs on the counter, and a messy floor. Write these down so you know exactly what to do when starting to clean.

Prioritize Your List

If you're feeling like you don't have time to get every room clean, prioritize your list so that you can focus on the most important spaces and the most pertinent tasks. Decide where guests are likely to spend the most time. For example, you may want to get the guest room spotless because this is where you will store everyone's belongings, but this isn't as important as getting the living room clean. Examples of spaces that may need the most attention include the entryway, the living room, the dining room, the kitchen, the bathroom, and the patio.

Start with Decluttering

A simple way to get a room to look cleaner quickly is by simply decluttering. This will help get rid of any messiness even if the room isn't spotless. Not only will it look less chaotic, your guests will also have more room to roam free and may even feel more comfortable. If needed, use bedrooms, closets, and drawers to store bulky items for now. To make your party planning as smooth as possible, use this checklist from our friends at Real Simple. One way to always have your home looking its best is by taking extra care of your carpet. A clean carpet can make a space look cleaner and more inviting even if you haven't had much time to clean. To achieve this great look, get you carpets professionally cleaned at least twice a year.

Ask for Help

If you're running short on time, don't hesitate to delegate tasks to members of your family. Assign at least one room to each member of your family and let them know exactly what you want to be done. Start by working together on common areas and then have each person focus on their own bedroom or another space that needs the attention.

Think Ahead

Hosting a party can be lots of fun, but the clean up the day after may not be fun at all. To prevent stains and other damages to your home, think ahead and plan ways to prevent these occurrences. For example, place coasters on your coffee table so that they are easily accessible to your guests. Be sure to place a doormat at your front door so guests know to clean their shoes off before stepping into your home. Using area rugs is also a great way to prevent stains on your carpet. Better yet, avoid serving food in carpeted areas of your home.

Focus on the Details

Sometimes we're so focused on cleaning large spaces that we forget about the small details that also make a huge difference. For example, focus a bit of your time on getting rid of any bad odors. To do this, simply take out the trash, wash the dishes in the sink, and use some lightly scented candles to give your home a great scent that is also subtle. Be sure you have plenty of space for all of your guests and their belongings. Do your best to make your home cozy and welcoming so that the evening is relaxed and fun.
