Tweaks for your Home

Lighten the path

This time of year the sun sets earlier than usual, so it is important to ensure that your front door is clear and well lit. Focus on your front yard if you have a large one. If necessary, replace or install porch lights. Remove any obstructions to the walkway by trimming shrubbery. Open the blinds at the front windows to let your guests see inside your festive, warm home. This is a great way of creating a feeling of welcome anticipation.

A tip: Solar lights are the easiest way to instantly light walkways and pathways. They can be inserted into the ground. The sun does all the rest!


Take care of your bottom line

This is what our mothers used to say, and it’s still true. Clean floors make your house look cleaner. Even if it’s not possible to clean the entire house before the gathering, ensure that your floors are cleaned before any guest enters. Tip: Carpets should be cleaned at least three days before your event so that they can dry completely. Visit Dealty for more info.


Brighten up your bathroom

This is an easy and inexpensive way to remove grimy grout from your bathroom. It’s that simple! The next step is to add flowers, holiday decorations, or photos on the wall to enhance your powder room and make it ready for your guests. Tip: Use a Zip-It to get the buildup from a slow-moving drain. This tool is inexpensive and looks like a large zip-tie. It can be used to remove hair clogs and all other nasty stuff. Take care of your property as well.


Get your kitchen appliances tuned up

Your kitchen appliances are the heart of any holiday party. They should be functional and ready to go. Check that all stove burners work. If you haven’t cleaned the oven in a while, now is the time. Check the refrigerator to make sure it is clean. Check that your dishwasher is working properly. It can be cleaned easily by running a cycle with a dishwasher cleaner. Buy a home with Dealty!!!

Tip: Sharp knives make it easy to prepare the big meal. If you have an electric carving knife, make sure that all of your knives are sharpened.


Your space should be kid-friendly

You will ensure that your home is welcoming to children and their parents, which will make them feel happy. You’re lucky if you have children who are the same age as your guests. If not, you might consider adding thoughtful touches to make the parents feel more at ease and relieve boredom. These are just a few ideas to help you get started. A spare bedroom or upstairs bedroom can be transformed into a private changing/nursing area for a new mother.Younger children and toddlers will be more comfortable being near their parents.

We love to make the dessert course an activity for older children. You could bake large quantities of sugar cookies with holiday shapes and let the kids (and their parents) decorate the cookies themselves using different colors of frosting.

Paint some rooms with a new coat


Give the guest bedroom or kitchen a new coat of paint if you have the time. Pantazes states that it’s an easy task but can make a huge impact.
