When you get the memo that you will be hosting the family
holidays this year in South Burlington, you might feel more than a little
stressed. As you start running through your
to-do list, we are here to tell you that it can be a simple and organized
Whether you are
having five or 50 guests over for the holidays, these
tips will help ensure your celebrations are safe and enjoyable for
all—even you, the host!
- A storage-packed island will give you maximum space in the most important room during
the holidays—the kitchen. You’ll have plenty of room
for lots of kitchen helpers and good conversations.
After a full day of cooking, a kitchen island with hidden nooks and crannies makes it
easy to clear away the after-dinner mess so you can relax with loved ones.
- The holidays are a great time for you to dress up your fireplace with up-to-date design trends. Not
only does it keep your home warm, but it is often the focal point of the room. Whether you want a television or
various decorations hung above the mantel, the possibilities to add a personal
touch are everywhere.
- Now is a great time to call in the professionals at Pella Windows and Doors in
South Burlington to insulate and seal your windows. Keep your guests
warm in those rooms you rarely use. Reduce the chilly drafts by adding insulation,
or even replacement
to make sure everyone has a warm and jolly holiday.
- Add some life in the dead of winter. Through such a cold season in South Burlington, you might
struggle to find bright colors outside
of your friend’s ugly Christmas sweater or Grandma’s
cookie frosting. Get creative with indoor plants and flowers —this
will add some life and is a great outlet for a craft day.
- Whether you need
more chairs around your table or you want a dedicated area for the kids to eat,
make sure to provide enough easy seating and places to
your guests. Don’t forget about an inviting area
to settle after a big Thanksgiving dinner, either.
- Everyone knows holiday food is the best. Touch up on your home, but also fine-tune
your favorite recipes. When your food matches the beauty of your kitchen, your guests will want to come back to the best
kitchen in South Burlington every year. If you don’t like cooking, add fun with
festive plates to put tasty treats on.
- Now is the perfect time to check or install your smoke alarms.
With all of the holiday madness going on, it is easy to be forgetful. No matter how great of a cook you are, sometimes things
go wrong in the kitchen—it is better to be prepared and keep your guests safe.
- While they may
collect dust during the rest of the year, dining rooms finally get the action they deserve around the
holidays. Whether you want a festive
look or an elegant feel,
there are infinite up-to-date design options you can take advantage of. Add anything
from a grouping of candles to a bowl of pinecones to bring attention to the
center of the table as a wintry statement piece.
- With bay windows you have endless possibilities to expand your
space and utilize a nook. Make use of your
untouched space and add tables, chairs or even a a bench that can store pillow and throws for
chilly nights. This is a perfect spot for you to set Santa’s cookies or
enjoy a cup of coffee before Thanksgiving cooking begins.
no matter how many projects you can fit in
before the holidays, give yourself time with your loved ones. With the help of these tips, your home will be
safe and comfortable. There isn’t a better time to feel at home in
South Burlington than the holidays. Toss in some comfy throw pillows and enjoy.
