Getting ready for the holidays is a great time to make those changes you have been wanting to make to dress to impress your guests with your beautiful home. There are many things one can do to create a warm and welcoming scene behind the scene. These wonderful changes may go unmentioned by your guests but will leave them impressed.
Lighting is a necessary feature for winter Holidays because the winter is a bit darker with the sun hidden behind clouds and the darkness of night falling much earlier in the evening. Dinner parties can be very fun in the winter and one can add new lighting fixtures to the inside and outside of the home to add to the ambiance of any occasion. There are many decorative fixtures to choose from that will add to the aesthetics of the home. After all, Don’t we all want our guests to think our home is artistically beautiful?
New flooring can add to the basic beauty of a home. One of the first things people notice is the floor and it does make a difference. adding new tile can make a home more appealing by simply replacing the old floor in the hall, kitchen or bathroom with fresh, clean undamaged tile. Wood floors are beautiful and can add to the warmth of any welcoming home. It is easier on the allergies because there is no place for dirt to stick where one can’t clean.
New carpeting can add to attraction of a home and can eliminate those nasty odors that are stuck in your old carpet with those ugly stains that a carpet cleaning just won’t remove not to mention the normal wear and tear of carpet over time can make old carpet look beat up and run down. It is always good to keep the floors looking new and clean so the first impressions will be impressive and is a great addition when getting ready for the holidays.
replacing those old counter tops and cupboards in the kitchen can add to warmth of a home. Over time counter tops have chips and scratches that take away from the beauty of a home and there are many ideas that can be done to improve the look of the kitchen. For the countertop one can replace the old top with wood or ceramic tile. I like ceramic tile because it is easier to keep clean and looks beautiful too. The old cupboards begin the dull with cleaning over the years and they suffer with a lot of wear and tear over time. Sometimes just changing the face of the cabinetry can transform a kitchen into a whole new gorgeous kitchen.
Every guest will use the bathroom at least once and your bathroom should be just as up to date and appealing as the rest of the home. Remodeling the bathroom is always a great option but sometimes adding some fresh paint and a few new fixtures such as towel racks, faucets and even a new shower curtain would make a huge difference in the bathroom. Again, I like tile because it is easier to clean and when the steam from the shower hits the walls it can easily be wiped away without leaving ugly and unsightly water stains.
Getting ready for the holidays is a great way to get started to impress your friends and family with your beautiful home. It is always nice to hear guests compliments on such a beautiful home.
