Right Tips to Treat Visitors Who Come to Your Home

  • Proper greetings

Walk toward the door when you’re greeting visitors, do so face-to-face. It’s just polite, and shows respect. It means that you consider them important enough to change your physical position for them. It also helps you to make eye contact. Do proper greetings like Hello! Hi there, Good morning, Good afternoon,  Good evening, It’s nice to meet you,  It’s a pleasure to meet you.

It is very important to greet them immediately at the door. Don’t allow them to linger outside the door, ringing the bell, wondering if you’re even home because you’ve gotten sidetracked with dishes, laundry, your hair, etc. Watch for them to pull up when expecting them so you can greet them at the door and not leave them outside waiting. It is fine to let them ring the bell, but be sure you’re not but a few steps away so they don’t feel strange or forgotten standing outside your door too long.

  • Take the Initiative With a Handshake

The ritual of shaking hands dates at least back to ancient Egypt and Babylon, and possible further than recorded history shows. It was a gesture for men to demonstrate they were not carrying weapons to extend their open right hand. This might explain why women didn’t follow the custom until more recently. Today, a handshake represents both welcome and good faith, such as when a deal is sealed with a handshake. People of either sex may first extend their hands.

Approach the visitors you’re greeting and extend your hand. You’ll come across as confident and assertive, not aggressive. Don’t wait for the other person to take a lead.

Keep it simple: shake firmly, but avoid the “death grip.” A “limp fish” leaves an equally poor impression. And keep your spare hand by your side: two-handed pumping and hands on shoulders are strictly for politicians.

  •  Smile (and the World Smiles With You)

Even if you’re carrying the woes of the world on your shoulders, try to look happy to see your visitors. A grimace immediately puts the other person on the defensive, while a smile is welcoming and inclusive.

  • Don’t expect your visitors to removes shoes

Many family usually removes their shoes before going inside the house, but  don’t expect your visitors to. No matter how you feel about shoes on the floor, don’t ask visitors to take off their shoes unless they offer. It’s just weird to people who don’t know you well enough to appreciate your cleanly nature.

  • Offer them a drink

Once people get through the door and are settled, ask if they need a drink. The list of options can include (but should not be limited to) beer, wine, a cocktail, and water. If your new arrivals have never been to your house, get them a drink first and then start the tour if they want one.

  •  Set Out the Necessities

Nobody likes to feel like a needy guest, so it’s a good idea to anticipate what your visitors might need before they get there. Put together a basket or tray of travel-sized toiletries (toothpaste, toothbrush, shampoo, conditioner, pain reliever) and leave it on the dresser, nightstand, or in the on-suite bathroom if you have one. Add a bottle of water and a glass on the bedside table in case your guest gets thirsty in the middle of the night.
