What Houzz contributors are saying:
Give them some roomLeave plenty of space for your guests’ luggage, coats and shoes. Clear some room in your wardrobe and leave some spare hangers, too, so they can hang up their clothes. This may mean stowing some of your out-of-season gear in the loft, for example, and can also be a good opportunity for a clear-out! Make sure the kitchen has a few cupboards free for storing groceries, and clear out the fridge, too.
Change your buying habitsBuy less, but of better quality, and you’ll avoid having to go through all of the above steps. If you adopt the hanger strategy, you’ll probably come to see how few clothes you actually need, and you might realise that you actually can splash out on a couple of key pieces rather than spending a little bit on lots of things that won’t last.

Be mercilessThe first step is the hardest. In order to properly evaluate what needs to be in your wardrobe (and rediscover those inappropriate cut-off shorts you bought five years ago and never wore), you’re going to have to take everything out first, and then separate the bad from the good. Donate or sell anything that doesn’t fit or you haven’t worn in over a year, and throw anything damaged or torn away.
