When planning your perfect Christmas – there is always a point where you turn attention to the house. This is when you start preparing your home before Christmas and consider vamping it up for the season.
If you want to make any major changes to your home before you invite people over for the festive period, now is the time to do it and you should spend some time this October preparing for the festivities ahead.
Today we have some simple jobs you can do now to freshen up the home before people come and visit for the festive break.
Preparing Your Home Before Christmas
Tidy up the garden
The first thing you do when preparing your home for Christmas is to tidy up your front and back yards. It is all too easy once summer is over to forget about your garden – but leaving it unkempt and messy will make your house look untidy. Ensure you take the time to mow the lawns, tidy up your shrubs, and get rid of weeds this month before the frost comes in.
Replace your roof
Now is a great time for you to take a look at your roof and make some improvements ready for a harsher season. Winter can be harsh, and if your roof isn’t up to scratch it will become easily damaged. Make sure to find a roofing company pay deductible to deal with your roof now and give you the perfect shelter for your home this winter.
Relay your floors
As well as looking at your roof, it is a good idea to look down to the floor and consider relaying new flooring for the Christmas season. One of the main reasons to refresh your floors is that you will be hosting people in the home and this will likely consist of them walking around the house. The extra traffic can further damage old flooring – so upgrading to sturdier flooring is better for you and will give the home a fresh feel.
Try new paint colors
One of the easier jobs you can do this winter to prepare for hosting Christmas is to vamp up your walls. Without deviating from your color scheme it is easy for you to find a new feature color that will suit the accessories you already have – and it will add an air of freshness to the home. You can use a color palette generator to pick the colors you have in your room already, and allow it to choose a new feature color that will compliment your design. A change like this is small and easy to achieve but will make a huge impact.
Buy a brand new dining table
One of the things you will want to do when you are hosting Christmas is making sure your dining table is up to scratch. If you have had the same table for a long time and it is in need of repairs – consider making the swap to a new dining table and chairs that will give you plenty of space for your Turkey and side dishes at the table.
