Is Your Home Ready for the Holidays?

The holidays are just around the corner, which means gatherings with family and friends, visits from loved ones, and lots of love and laughter shared at home. Now is a great time to ensure that your home is not only warm and welcoming, but also reflects your style and personality.

You don’t have to paint or remodel the whole house to have a fresh, new look. Updating just a few details can make a big impact. Of course, as a painting company, our suggestions involve painting parts of your house. But there’s a good reason for that. Paint not only changes the color of your walls, but also breathes new life into a room by making everything look clean and fresh and updating the overall look.

Below are a few areas to consider painting make sure your home looks its best this holiday season (and all year round) without breaking the bank or taking a lot of time.

#1 Revitalize your dining or living room

 Paint living or dining room

If you want to make a big impact on your holiday guests, start with the rooms where you’ll spend most of your time entertaining. Brighten your living or dining room with rich, bold color or choose a neutral backdrop to let other room elements take center stage. Either way, the fresh, crisp lines of a new coat of paint will help your lights and decorations shine even brighter as friends and family gather.

#2 Give your kitchen a facelift

 Kitchen cabinet painting

The kitchen is the heart of the home and is where many people spend extra time during the holidays. Make that time a little more enjoyable with a new look. Painting kitchen cabinets is a quick and effective way to make-over the look of your kitchen at a fraction of the cost of a full kitchen remodel. Give your kitchen a modern look with sleek white cabinets or make a statement with a bold color. For variety, consider painting the island cabinets a contrasting color or add a painted backsplash.

#3 Delight in the details

 Trim painting

When talking about painting, most people think only of walls and either ignore the trim or choose a neutral color to fade into the background. But baseboards, door frames, doors, banisters, and other details can make a statement on their own. Updating the trim color can refresh a room and give it the right “frame,” while cleaning up any scuffs or imperfections.

#4 Make the transition

 Paining stairs and halls

Halls, stairs, and entryways are often overlooked when considering updates, but these transition areas can have a big impact on the overall feel of your home. Entryways welcome guests to your home and set the mood for the rest of the house. Choose colors and decorations that introduce your personality and style. Halls and stairways can be used to transition colors and moods from the public living spaces to the more private bedrooms and family spaces.

 

#5 Give the gift of a new room

 Paint a bedroom

If you’re having a hard time finding a gift for that hard-to-shop-for family member, consider giving them the gift of a new look. Paint their bedroom with colors and style that reflect their personality. This is a great gift idea for a teenager whose tastes have matured past the design of their childhood room or for a spouse who wants the perfect oasis to retreat to at the end of the day.

 

#6 Paint a bathroom

 Paint a bathroom

Bathrooms are often the last thing on homeowners’ minds when it comes to painting and decorating. But bathrooms are more than just a functional necessity; they can help set the mood for the day or be a statement on their own. A new color in the bathroom can help you unwind and relax after a busy day or make guests feel comfortable as they freshen up.

 

#7 Make a statement

 Paint a statement wall

Painting doesn’t have to change the whole room. Add some flair by painting one wall a different color or by adding a design. Use this as a focal point to anchor your furniture or décor in a large room or to add visual space & interest to a small room.
