Turn Your House Into a Home for the Holidays

There are so many wonderful things about the holiday season, but one of the best parts is getting some extra time at home with family. This holiday season, we want to help you transform your home for the holidays. Nothing makes your house feel more like a home than that warm, comfy feeling you get when you walk into a beautifully decorated home. Here are our top 5 tips for transforming your home for the season.

1.   Make Your Space Cozier

With the holidays right around the corner, chances are it is getting chilly outside. Make your space cozier this holiday season to create a more inviting and comfy environment. One of the easiest ways to make your space cozier is to incorporate heavier textiles into your home design. Think thick blankets, throws, accent pillows, and rugs. Having these items on the back of chairs, draped over the couch, or even in a basket in your living room will create a cozier and softer vibe throughout the home.

You can also create that coveted cozy feeling through scent. Stock up on your favorite holiday candles or bake cookies before you have guests come over to exude coziness and holiday joy throughout the home.

2.   Incorporate New Lighting

Lighting is a great and simple way to transform your home, and it is super easy to do during the holidays! Opt for softer colors and more yellow lights to create a warmer feeling inside the home. String lights are also great for creating a beautiful, classic holiday feel on the interior and exterior of a house. Wrap them around a staircase or over the fireplace to accent the natural beauty of the space. You can also invest in lighting that will be useful year-round, such as floor lamps, twinkle lights, and outdoor accent lighting to give your home that special extra touch.

3.   Consider a Fresh Coat of Paint

While you are spending time thinking of how you want to transform your home for the holidays, perhaps you want to consider a fresh coat of paint on the walls. The winter is a great time to do interior painting; whether you want a new splash of color or have been meaning to finish some touch-ups around the house, a fresh coat of paint can liven up your space just in time for the holidays. Ensure you work with an interior paint specialist to get the right color, paint type, and necessary tools to create a flawless finish.

4.   Set the Table

Another simple way to transform your home for the holidays is to have a special table setting prepared. Invest in a pretty tablecloth, table runners, cloth napkins, and holiday dishes. Add candles or some beautiful seasonal plants or flowers to the table as well. Decorating a table is truly an art, so get creative and let your table setting be reflective of your beautiful home during the holidays!

5.   Fill it with Friends and Family
