3 Easy Ways to Spruce Up Your Home for the Holidays

Sometimes the best motivation for initiating home upgrades is when you know guests are coming to stay with you. That’s when you start seeing your home through their eyes and realize it’s time to declutter, decorate, and clean. Here are a few tips to wow your family and friends this holiday season.

1. Repaint the Mudroom.

This is likely to be the first room in the house to suffer an aesthetic beating due to its high traffic of dirty boots and moisture. Dedicate a weekend to giving it a fresh coat of paint and a good cleaning. To store shoes, we suggest creating an enclosed shelving unit that hides that clutter.


2. Recaulk Your Bathrooms

Bright white caulking can make your bathroom look like it was just renovated. Remove existing caulking with a sharp tool, clean the surface to remove all traces of the previous work, dry the area, and then carefully begin. For best results, allow caulk to dry for at least 24 hours.


3. Pressure Washing

Depending on the weather, this is a great way to refresh your driveway/sidewalk, siding, and deck. Not only can pressure washing delay future projects such as painting or installing siding, but it also greatly improves the appearance of your home. It’s important to keep in mind, though, that hiring an experienced professional is almost always worth the extra cost.
