There’s something about the holidays that makes time at home extra enjoyable. With the holiday season quickly approaching, now is the time to start sprucing up your home. Whether your house is comfy cozy, elegant and modern, or something in between, here’s how you can get your house ready for the holidays.

Do the chores

First, the not-as-fun stuff. Before you get to decorating, make sure your house is clean and tidy.

Get organized

Take some time to declutter your space and get everything organized. Not only will this look nice, it will help you feel a sense of calm and contribute to a calm feeling throughout your home, as well. Starting with one room at a time, look at your belongings and consider how often you’ve used each item. Decide what you want to keep, what can be donated, and what belongs in the trash. For the items you decide to keep, store them in their proper places. It can be helpful to use storage containers or baskets to help keep everything organized.

Clean, clean, clean

Whether or not you’re expecting company for the holidays, having a clean house is a nice way to start the holidays. Vacuum and dust each room, scrub the bathrooms, wipe down the windows, and make sure the kitchen is nice and clean. Making sure your HVAC system is properly working can ensure you’ll have a warm, cozy home when the holidays arrive.


Now, the fun part! Once your home is clean and organized, adding decorations and fresh paint can make your house feel festive during the holidays.

Bring out the decorations

Whether you prefer just a few fun pieces here and there or are dedicated to making your home look like a winter wonderland, decorating is a great way to get your home ready for the holidays. Garland and wreaths bring a bit of the outdoors into your home, while holiday throw pillows and soft blankets can make your home feel ready for winter evenings. Table runners, placemats and centerpieces also add pops of festive flair, as do other countertop and mantle decorations. Adding decorative candles is another way to make your house look – and smell – great.

Decorating your home is a fun way to celebrate the season. Just keep in mind that if you’re also thinking about painting your home, make sure to do that first before bringing out the decorations.

Add some fresh paint

Whether you’ve been thinking about a fresh coat of paint or an entirely new wall color, now is a great time to paint your home. Not only does new paint refresh your space, making it look clean and new, it can also totally change the look and feel of the room, depending on your color choice. For example, blues can make a room feel relaxing, yellows can make it feel cheerful, and greens and browns can elicit an earthy vibe. Additionally, light hues can make a room feel bigger and brighter, while dark tones may make a room feel smaller and cozier.
