This time of year we’re getting ready for family, friends, and out of town and unannounced guests to visit us during the holiday season. We’re baking, planning and cleaning our home from top to bottom. We want every inch of our home to look immaculate and decorated with a festive flair. While we may not want to add a lot of holiday decor to our bathrooms, there are some gorgeous and inexpensive accessories that will make your loo merrier. Plus, there are other things we can do to spruce them up to create a welcoming atmosphere.
Some may feel that adding holiday-inspired accessories to our bathroom is a bit over the top, but others may feel that a splash of seasonal decor is okay. Shower curtains, bath mats, and complete holiday ensembles are available for reasonable prices and they quickly transform your ordinary bathroom into a festive one. You can also pick up some scented liquid soap that comes in Christmasy bottles. It’s nice to walk into a bathroom that’s embellished with the holiday spirit.
Keep Your Bathrooms Well Stocked
Bathrooms are high traffic rooms so we are going to go through a lot of supplies, especially toilet paper. Having a decorative stack of extra rolls that are within reach is important. No one wants to be releasing solids only to find there is no toilet paper. Have extra boxes of tissue available, along with some scented soaps, soothing lotions and maybe some remedies for heartburn or diarrhea. If your guests are staying overnight, have a basket filled with some necessities like new toothbrushes, toothpaste, mouthwash, dental floss, razors, shaving foam, cotton balls, feminine products, and items specific to their needs. A lot of these items can be found in sample sizes.
Soft and Plush Towels
Before guests come over, remove your everyday unattractive and mismatched towels and replace them with plusher options like Cariloha’s Bamboo Towels. All their towels are made from eco-friendly viscose from bamboo and Turkish combed cotton. They’re odor-resistant, repel allergens, absorbent and oh so soft.
The Cariloha bamboo bath sheets are super soft, super big, but not too heavy. They measure 40″ x 70″ so you can wrap yourself in these lavishly large and soft towels. They use a unique blend of extra-smooth, slightly twisted yarn for increased softness and comfort. Bambo is naturally moisture-wicking, so you’ll be dry in no time.
The Cariloha bath towels are probably the size what most of us would use. They measure 30″ x 56″ and have the same attributes as the bath sheets. They combine plush softness with odor repelling and moisture-wicking properties, to create the comfiest towel ever. The towels feel silky and fleecy warm to the skin.
Having a few of the Cariloha towel sets in your bathroom is perfect for guests. The set comes with a bath towel, a hand towel, and a washcloth, so your guests do not have to share towels. The sets come in seven different colors, so each guest can choose their own shade.
Hand towels are the most used towels in the bathroom. You have to refresh the towel each day or more often if you have lots of guests. Having a few extra sets of Cariloha hand towels will ensure that your guests not only have something clean and dry to wipe their hands on, but towels that are immensely soft. Each set includes three hand towels and they are available in seven different colors.
There is nothing worse than washing your face with abrasive cloths, and your guests certainly would not appreciate this. Cariloha washcloths are known for their signature softness, as well as being absorbent and odor resistant. They feel plush and velvety soft on the skin. They’re thicker than the average washcloth and made from a superior blend of viscose from bamboo and Turkish combed cotton.
With lots of use, the bathroom can become a stinky place. It can be awkward and embarrassing for guests if a means for dissolving the smell is not provided. There are several options that work. You could put a diffuser in the bathroom with an aromatic holiday scent, there are lots of fragrant sprays, holiday scented candles, potpourri or matches. The flicker from the candles also creates a warm and cozy ambience that relaxes people. You should also ensure that your bathroom fan is working optimally.
