As we move into the festive season many of us will have guests staying over – friends and family visiting for Halloween, Bonfire Night and of course Xmas. Whilst it’s great to wrap up warm and enjoy some fireworks or trick-or-treating, it’s important to make sure your guests are cosy when they go to bed. After all, you’re in charge of the central heating and few guests would get up in the night to turn it on, or even complain that they were cold!
One of the best things you can do for any guest staying over is provide them with their own heater, independent of the rest of the house. That way, they can turn it on if they’re cold or turn it off if they’re too warm, without feeling like they’re disturbing anyone else. A slimline electric radiator is perfect for this – you can pre-set it to keep a minimal heat, and guests can turn it up and down easily if they need to.
Our slimline radiators start from just £199 and plug straight into the wall so are incredibly easy to install. Especially on these colder nights, your guests will thank you for the extra heating capacity. If you can’t attach the radiator to the wall it doesn’t matter – free-standing legs are available to the heater can be moved from room to room as needed.
If your guests are staying in a room not normally used as a bedroom, a free-standing electric radiator is a great investment for moving around the house. Your living room might get very cold over night for example, so if someone’s bedding down on the sofa they’ll appreciate the extra heater.
When outfitting your guest room, it’s a good idea to give them lots of choice about their bedding too. Some people like one pillow, some people like three, and everyone has their own preference for duvets and blankets. Make sure to put extra pillows somewhere your guests will find them, and lay out an extra blanket on the bed for your guests to use if they need to. Even if the nights are freezing cold, with a good heater and lots of bedding they’re sure to have a great night’s sleep.
