Christmas Gifts and TreeWill you be hosting out-of-town guests or festive revelers this holiday season? Well before they arrive, make sure you are protected with a solid home insurance policy in case any of your guests slip and fall or otherwise injure themselves at your fete. Once that business is out of the way, you can focus your efforts on preparing your home for the holidays. Here are some how-to hints from the pros at Houselogic.

Make a Plan

Preparing your home for guests can seem like a monumental undertaking. Where do you start? Do yourself a favor and start by putting pen to paper. Make a list of what you'd like to accomplish, placing the highest priority items first. If you have overnight guests coming, for example, decluttering the guest room, making sure the bed has clean sheets and making sure the guest bathroom is clean and tidy should top your list.

Make Sure Your Home is Safe

Accidents happen. Reduce the risks that they'll happen during your holiday gatherings by placing motion-activated nightlights throughout your house, making sure your exterior walkways are well lit, childproofing your home for pint-sized guests, adding new batteries to all smoke detectors and making sure space heaters and candles are far from curtains, furnishings and places they could accidentally be knocked over.

Reorganize Temporarily

Whether you're hosting a party or overnight guests, consider moving your coffee station into the family room so guests can access it easily without crowding the kitchen. Consider bringing in extra chairs or bench seating, and storing away knickknacks that make your family room feel cluttered. Declutter your entry hall and hang hooks or place a coat rack for guests to place their coats and umbrellas. It's also smart to create a dedicated space where guests can remove muddy shoes and rain boots in inclement weather (and don't forget anti-slip doormats!)

Before you tackle the monumental task of preparing your home for the holidays, make sure your home insurance coverage is adequate to protect your from the heightened risks that abound during the holidays.
