The holiday season is a busy time, which is why we understand if you are not willing to tackle one more thing during this time of the year. However, if your home is looking a little unloved, you may need to do a little renovation here and there to make it look nice for all your guests.
Here are 4 home renovations to consider before the holiday season begins:
Everyone is going to be with you in your kitchen this holiday season, so you might as well get it looking its best. We recommend upgrading your appliances, installing new counters and cabinets, and replacing your old flooring. If you do not want to tackle all that, then we recommend at least adding a little new backsplash for visual appeal.
Every guest that walks in your door is going to need to use your bathroom, so this is not the time of the year to ignore the leaky faucets, dingy grout, chipped countertops, or cracked tiles. We recommend having a professional come in to replace older items or simply create a brand-new space that is fresh and clean. Once the work is completed, add a few holiday décor items and your bathroom will be ready for guests before you are!
Unless you have your guests come in through your back door, your entryway is the first thing that they are going to see when they walk into your home. We recommend clearing out your family’s coats, piles of shoes, hats, scarves, and gloves and putting them away somewhere else. Make sure that there is room in the closet in your entryway to hang up your guests’ coats, so that they know where to find it when they are ready to leave. A table is the perfect place for them to place their personal items as they are taking their coat off, so leave a little room if you decide to decorate it.
Your Entertainment Area
Congratulations if you have already set up an entertainment area in your home! Not many people have taken the time to do this yet, but it can be quite the lifesaver during the holiday season. Imagine having one large area where all your guests can gather? That limits how much cleaning you need to do around the rest of your house! We recommend renovating the space that you want to use for entertaining, while incorporating comfortable seating areas and a place to serve food and drinks.
These four types of home renovations are the ones that we think that you should consider before the holiday season arrives. However, you may have another idea of how you can make your home more comfortable for your guests. Do what you think is best, because only you know how your home will work best.
