As the holiday season approaches, it’s time to spruce up your living spaces and create warm, inviting environments for friends and family. Abbey Design + Remodel is here to guide you through the process of getting your home holiday-ready. From the flicker of candlelight to cozy textiles and twinkling lights, follow our tips to transform your space for the upcoming holiday season.
1. Define Your Holiday Style
Before diving into decorations, define your holiday style. Are you a lover of traditional colors, or do you prefer a modern mix of holiday colors? Once you’ve chosen your color scheme and theme, purchasing and arranging decorations becomes a cohesive and satisfying task.
2. Front Door Festivities
Make a festive first impression with a statement wreath or garland around your front door. Opt for seasonal elements like pinecones, berries, and ribbons that tie in with your chosen theme. Don’t forget to update outdoor lighting fixtures, ensuring a warm and welcoming glow for arriving guests.
3. Twinkling Lights Everywhere
Nothing says holidays like twinkling lights. Drape string lights around windows, across mantels, and along banisters.
4. Refresh the Fireplace
The fireplace is often the heart of holiday gatherings. Give it a fresh look with new tiles or a custom mantle. Abbey Design + Remodel can help you explore options that align with your style and budget.
5. Deck the Halls with Wall Art
Swapping out regular wall art with holiday-themed pieces can make a significant impact. Opt for winter landscapes, festive quotes, or family holiday photos to bring a touch of seasonal charm to your home.
6. Create Cozy Corners
Holiday seasons are all about comfort and warmth. Add cozy corners to your living spaces with plush throws, soft pillows, cozy area rugs and scented candles. Consider upgrading your flooring – a gift that keeps giving all year round.
7. Update the Kitchen
The kitchen is a bustling hub during the holiday season. Ensure it’s up to the task with a refresh from Abbey Design + Remodel. Update countertops, optimize storage, and consider installing a new backsplash for a timely kitchen transformation.
8. Set the Table with Style
Your dining table is the center of festive feasts. Curate a stunning tablescape with themed centerpieces, elegant tableware, and coordinated linens.
9. Personalized Guest Rooms
If you’re hosting overnight guests, make their stay memorable with personalized guest rooms. Upgrade bedding, add ambient lighting, and incorporate holiday touches for a home-away-from-home experience.
10. Safety First
As you deck the halls, don’t forget about safety. Secure rugs to prevent slips, keep walkways clear, and ensure all holiday lights are in good working order.
Getting your home ready for the holidays can be a joyful experience with a little planning and creativity. Abbey Design + Remodel is here to help you every step of the way, from small updates to significant transformations. Contact us today, and let’s make your home shine this holiday season!
