Woodbury Home Project Ideas to Accommodate Guests in 2019

The holiday rush is over, your guests are safely back home, and it’s now time to focus on ways to improve hosting your guests in 2019. Whether you have guests coming into town for a birthday, visiting just because or won’t have anyone staying over until the next holiday season, our experts at Center Island Contracting have some tips to get your home ready to accommodate your guests in the new year.

Knowing you will be having guests stay over is a great motivator to get those home remodel projects done, and it’s never too early to prepare. We always want our guests to feel welcomed into a comfortable and cozy environment that they will want to keep coming back to, so below are some ideas for home projects to provide a warm environment for guests in 2019.

Entryway Facelift

You only have one chance to make a first impression and the entryway to your home is the first impression you give to your guests. The entryway sets the tone for the rest of the house, so you want it to be as welcoming as possible. Add potted plants, spruce up with a paint job or replace your welcome mat for a quick facelift.

TV in Guest Bedroom

Although visiting is all about quality time, your guests will appreciate having their own television in the guest bedroom. If they like to stay up later to watch TV or like to watch the news early in the morning with a cup of coffee, they will think of it as a nice touch to the guest bedroom.

Conveniently Placed Bath Essentials

As a guest in someone’s home, there’s nothing worse than having to dig through cabinets looking for bath essentials such as wash cloths or towels. With that said, conveniently lay out bath essentials for your guests in the guest bathroom so they have everything they need in one place.


One of the most important aspects of getting your house ready for guests is to declutter. Wasting and cluttering space with too many decorative objects can throw off your space’s sense of serenity and calmness, which is the opposite of what you want your house guests to feel.

Keep Design Minimal

Going along with the decluttering theme, keeping your design minimal in the guest bedroom and bathroom will allow them to fill the space with their own belongings and not feel like they’re creating a mess of the space they’re staying in.
