Although it seems like summer just officially ended, it’s time to start thinking about how you want to ready your home for the holidays. The sooner you start your holiday home prep, the more time you have to actually enjoy the results of all of your hard work.
Holiday Home Prep 101
Use these tips to get your home in holiday shape before the first guests start planning their arrival at your doorstep:
When thinking about getting your home ready for holiday guests, you should start your planning by looking down. Clean floors make the rest of your home look cleaner and more open. Begin the process by removing all of the clutter from your carpets. This means you need to find a spot for toys, shoes, and anything else that might be covering your gorgeous flooring.
Once the clutter is gone, you can call in professional carpet cleaners like us to get rid of the hard-to-reach dirt that is decreasing the aesthetic appeal of your space. Our tried and tested cleaning process ensures that your floors can pass the inspection of even your most critical holiday guests.
The Guest Space
If you are planning to have some of your holiday guests stay with you, it is important to create a comfortable and welcoming guest space. Adding a few small but thoughtful touches can transform a boring room into a dream guest suite.
Fill a table, closet, or extra drawer with any toiletries your guests might need for their trip. Give the room some decorative features like a nice piece of artwork or a new bedspread When your guests arrive, leave a pitcher of water with some glasses in the room so they don’t feel uncomfortable traveling to the kitchen when they are thirsty.
The Home Décor
Once the carpets are cleaned and the guest space is ready, it is time to put your focus on your holiday home décor. A few well-placed pumpkins and fall foliage enhance any Thanksgiving table. Cranberries, wreaths, and ornate ornaments can turn your home into a Winter Wonderland.
Holiday home décor adds a little bit of flair to your interior design so your space is more than ready to welcome your holiday guests. Any little feature like a holiday-themed tablecloth or a seasonally-scented candle adds more holiday cheer to your home.
The Finishing Touches to Holiday Home Prep
You have made all the preparations and your guests are set to arrive. Just before they ring the doorbell, give your home a final once-over. Put away any clutter that has accumulated, run the vacuum over your carpets, cue up your favorite holiday music, and set the table. Since you started prepping your home so early, now all you have to do is sit back and enjoy the holidays with your loved ones.
