The holidays are almost upon us and, for many, that means family get togethers, holiday parties and holiday dinners with friends. If you are planning on having guests over this holiday season, getting your home ready for the holidays should be a top priority. From cleaning the kitchen to decking the halls, our helpful guide will make getting your home holiday ready easier than ever. Let’s take a look!
How To Prepare Your House For The Holidays
Clear The Clutter- get rid of any clutter that is laying around as this will give your home an overly ‘busy’ look and your holiday decorations could get lost in all of the clutter.
Focus On The Big Projects First- by focusing on the larger, more time consuming projects such as cleaning the carpets or washing the windows, you will find it easier to get more done in less time. Once the big projects are done, then you can focus on the smaller, easier cleaning tasks.
Deep Clean- once you have the clutter cleared and the major cleaning projects tackled, give your home a good deep cleaning. Focus on rooms that guests will use most and don’t forget the coat closet.
Prepare The Guest Rooms- if you plan on having guests stay over this holiday season, you need to make sure that the guest rooms are ready. Give them a thorough cleaning, add some colourful flowers and don’t forget an 18oz scented candle from Airpure in your favourite seasonal fragrance.
Decorate- once your home is clean and smelling great, it’s time to decorate for the holiday season. Adding festive lights, both inside and outside your home, garland around the fireplace, stair railings, front door and anywhere else you need a touch of seasonal cheer is a good start. Trim your tree, light your favourite scented candle and wait for your guests to arrive.
Entertain In Holiday Style- be sure to create a warm, inviting get together for family and friends. Pour seasonal wine, cook a traditional holiday dinner, sit next to the fire and enjoy good conversation with those that you don’t see very often throughout the year.
The holidays are a special time of year and you can make them even more special by getting your home holiday ready!
