Preparing for the holidays can be a time consuming task. It may only be November, but there is a lot that needs to get done, so there’s really no better time to start than now! Holiday visitors will be arriving soon and beyond holiday shopping, holiday decorating and all the other day-to-day tasks required, you must also plan to prepare for your guests. Window Nation in Ohio has a few helpful tips to offer when it comes to preparing your home for the impending holidays. Here are our helpful tips to get you ready to play host to visiting friends and family:
- Make sure that you are prepared in the event of a snowstorm. Put buckets of salt and gravel outside with scoops so that if the weather gets bad, you can keep your walkways and driveway from being a skating rink.
- Have a designated area in your home for winter weather wear. Keep extra coats, hats and mittens for the use of guests as necessary and make sure you have one closet devoted to these items.
- Prepare guest bedrooms with fresh linens, pillows and bath towels. Clear dresser drawers or closet space for guests so that they can unpack their belongings and feel right at home.
- Finish any partially completed home projects. Knowing you have the holidays coming up and guests coming is a good motivator to complete home repairs that have stalled.
- Clear out your refrigerator to make room for all the holiday groceries you will need. Clean out the cupboards of any items that are out of date and take an inventory of any kitchen staples that you may need.
- Don’t forget about your holiday decorating needs! You will need table décor, kitchenware, glasses and serving dishes, table linens and dinnerware.
