The holidays are a busy time for everyone, and making sure your house is ready for an influx of guests may be the last thing you want to stress about during this time of the year. However, getting your home ready doesn’t have to be stressful. Here are some quick and easy ways to get your home holiday-ready.
Has your countertop been collecting a clutter of mail throughout the year? Is your desk filled with countless papers that you don’t need? It’s time to clear off these spaces in preparation for your guests. Although you can primarily focus on the main spaces such as the living room, kitchen, and bathroom, it’s a good idea to tidy up the entire house for the holidays. This is a time for “spring cleaning” in the winter.
In addition to tidying up the main areas, clear up some space for your guests to put their belongings while in your home. It can be a small closet area, a drawer, or even a coat hanger. This small gesture will make your guests feel more at home and allow them to not worry about their belongings.
Clean out the Fridge
If you’re planning to cook, or plan on receiving a lot of food during the holidays, it’s a good idea to make sure your fridge is ready for the excess amount of food. In addition to making space for excess food, it’s best to clean out your fridge before guests arrive to avoid the unwanted smell from old food in your refrigerator.
This is a special time of the year and your home should reflect that. Decorations create a great ambiance for you and your guests to enjoy. If you’re concerned about cost, there are many ways to decorate your home without breaking the bank. You can decorate your home by:
– Using twigs, pinecones, and leaves from outside.
– Utilizing decorative candles
– Repurposing old glass bottles
– Make decorations out of paper
Get Your Heat Checked
Something that people often overlook during the holiday season is their home’s HVAC system. It’s important to get your heating system checked before guests arrive to fix any ongoing heating problems or improve your system’s efficiency. The last thing you’d want is a house full of cold guests because of a failed heating system.
