Revitalizing Your Home for the Holidays
November marks the start of the year-end holiday season. In the next month or so, out-of-town guests will be arriving. First comes Thanksgiving, the next Black Friday – and the next thing you know, it’s already December! Homes will be lively once friends and relatives arrive, and you only have about two more weeks to prepare before the first big holiday. How do you revitalize your home for the holiday season? Here are a few tips.
Before you even think of decorating, think about the spaces that need to be cleaned up. Is your living room cluttered? Does your kitchen need deep cleaning? Start with decluttering each room in your house. Keep the things that you don’t need in storage or give them away. Once you’ve decluttered, you can start cleaning. Vacuum carpets, clean your windows, replace old drapery and sheets from guest rooms, and so on.
Create a Holiday Haven
So what comes after cleaning? Now that you’ve stripped your rooms of clutter, old sheets, and drapery, it’s time to start turning your home into a holiday haven! Warm colors will make any space inviting, especially as the temperatures start to drop. Use passionate reds, autumn bronze, and warm greens akin to an evergreen bough. Adding festive throw pillows, table napkins, and runners for an easy seasonal look. Frame bright tapestry fabric as an art piece. To really live up to the holiday spirit, surprise dad with new arm covers and head cap for his favorite chair!

Use Functional Decoration
Using functional decor means you don’t have to clutter your rooms with trinkets to add life to negative spaces. For example, if your living room is looking a little dull, you can always add accent blankets or rugs on top of your couch. Have an old Grandfather Chair? Bring a new look to that treasured family heirloom. Adding in some colorful throws on seating furniture also works. Not enough seating furniture for guests? Ottomans can be three things at once – a piece of decor, a seat, and extra storage. And of course, don’t forget drapery. It’s one of the biggest pieces of functional decor in a room, so make sure to pick the perfect fabric for it!
Improve Your Yard
You won’t always be entertaining guests inside your home. Fall is the best time to enjoy some grilled food, or maybe some marshmallows by the fire. For this, you’ll want to make sure you have enough outdoor seating. When adding seats in your patio or backyard, using outdoor, upholstery-grade fabric is best. They’re easy to clean and durable, so you don’t have to worry about it being used too often. Make sure your yard is free of debris, too. Take the time to rake those leaves and twigs, so they don’t get blown around by the wind when you have guests over.
