Hosting can be stressful, especially during the holidays. During this time, interior design is ramping up, gifts are being bought, and decorating is in full swing. Here are a few tips to help you prepare your home for the holidays!
A Little bit of Organization
Sometimes the day before is a little too late to get absolutely everything ready to go however, there is still plenty you can do. Decluttering is the first major step in getting the home looking nicer. Remove anything unnecessary from countertops, and tables, throw away trash, and if you run out of time, simply storing things somewhere out of sight to come back to later is always an option.
You might know your home interior design layout like the back of your hand, but others probably don’t. Make sure all of your lights, including outdoors, work properly. You can even spice things up with motion detecting lights if you have time to do so. This will make navigating porches, hallways, and bathrooms, much easier.
Interior Design: Making Space Where you can.
The foyer is usually the first thing your guests will see, so it is always a good idea to make the space feel welcoming.
- Put down a nice rug, or a welcome mat at the entrance.
- Declutter any shoes, jackets, umbrellas, etc.
- Have plenty of hooks, or a place to take jackets.
- Add storage for shoes if possible.
Add an extra eating space, or bar area.
The kitchen is the center of attention during a lot of gatherings. That is why it’s important to keep it clean for your guests.
- Have a station for coffee either in the family room or present visibility in the kitchen.
- If you like to socialize while cooking, place extra chairs around your kitchen to make it welcoming.
