7 Tips To Prepare Your Home For Christmas

Prepare Your Home For Christmas: Celebrating the biggest day of the year becomes more manageable with some early planning that’s why Prestige Home Transformations want to share useful ideas on how to get your home ready for the holidays. From tidying up rooms to bringing out your decorations, these simple Christmas preparation tips will help you set a beautiful scene for the season’s festivities.

Tip #1: Clear Out the Clutter

Before you start decking the halls, set aside a day or two to declutter your home. Check rooms, shelves, and surfaces and put away the things you no longer use or want to display. Decluttering helps create more space for holiday décor and makes it easier for you to visualize your decorating ideas.

Tip #2: Keep an Orderly Kitchen

Christmas time usually involves a lot of cooking and baking, and an organized kitchen helps keep things running smoothly. Make sure that essential kitchen tools, utensils, and cookware are thoroughly clean and within easy reach.

Check that the oven, stove, microwave, food processor, and dishwasher are in good working condition, and repair or replace any faulty appliance before you need to use it. Scan the fridge and dispose of stale or expired items to make room for freezer-friendly treats that you can make ahead of time.

Tip #3: Set Up the Celebration Space

Whether it’s the living room, dining room, or den, every home has a designated space where most of the holiday festivities take place. Assess your area and find the perfect spot for your Christmas tree. Don’t hesitate to rearrange, replace, or remove furniture to give your seasonal centerpiece the space it deserves.

Tip #4: Play the Perfect Host

The holiday season means more visitors in your home enjoying the celebration. Don’t be unprepared when it comes to the items needed to entertain your seasonal guests. Stock up on snacks and make sure you have suitable serving stands and appetizer bowls.

If you are hosting a large dinner party and plan to serve mulled wine check that you have more than enough wine glasses in case of unexpected company.

Tip #5: Inspect Your Christmas Tree

No matter if you plan to re-use your current artificial Christmas tree or buy a new one, it’s always a good idea to inspect it a few weeks before setting up. Look for loose branches and make sure all the lights are functioning properly. Checking early gives you time to troubleshoot or request for replacement parts. Do the same for your Christmas wreaths, garlands, or swags.

Tip #6: Schedule in Big Jobs

If you’ve been putting off some big jobs during the year, schedule them in now before the craziness begins. For example, clean your carpets and lounge and the difference would be amazing! Make a list of anything that needs doing before the Christmas events start and schedule it in. Request a FREE quote here.

Tip #7: Enliven Your Exteriors

Make your entryways more inviting by complementing your Christmas wreath with a host of festive decorations. Try flanking your front entrance with a pair of pre-lit topiaries or arranging rustic LED lanterns on the steps or landing. Lush artificial garlands may be wrapped around posts and railings, or fixed along the door frame with garland hangers or removable fasteners.

This year, spare yourself from the usual last-minute holiday scramble and enjoy more time in the company of family and friends with these Christmas preparation tips.
