Are you looking forward to family gatherings and holiday parties in your Long Island home this year? If you’re planning major renovations, now is the time to prepare your home for the 2019 holiday season. Not sure where to start? Here are five fall refresher tips from the Renewal by Andersen of Long Island replacement window team just in time for the holiday season and welcoming in 2020 with a fresh start.
Five Fall Refresher Tips for Your Home
#1. Create a Spa-like Tone in Your Guest Bathroom
You really don’t have to spend a lot of money to freshen up your guest bathroom if you’re on a budget. Give the walls a fresh coat of neutral-colored paint, bring in some relaxing scents, add fall and winter accents that include candles, mirrors and bath salts.
Update your window treatments and check your windows. Repair any minor damage or consult with a replacement window specialist if you notice significant deterioration or problems that may allow air and moisture leaks to destroy your redecorating and indoor climate control.
#2. Make a Bold Statement with a Bay or Bow Window
We mentioned checking your bathroom windows, but this is the perfect time to check all the windows in your home to make sure they are all working properly and ready for the cold weather that naturally appears as the holiday season officially arrives. If you’ve been putting off replacing a few – or all – of your windows, schedule your installation now and make a bold statement with a beautiful bay or bow window before the holiday celebrations? Both bay and bow window configurations allow homeowners to expand seating and/or floor space. And, you will instantly enhance indoor comfort and air quality.
#3. De-Clutter Your Front Closet
You’ll need a clean closet ready to accept your guest’s coats as holiday gatherings and parties begin to fill the calendar. You don’t have to necessarily tackle the closet in your foyer, you can use a closet in any room, as long as it is convenient for you and your guests. Get organized with new shelves or storage bins. Make room for extra pillows and soft, bulky throws that can double as floor-seating when needed. And, try to create zones for different items. When room allows, carve out some dedicated storage space for holiday gifts and favors, and all the cards, wrapping paper, glitter, tape and ribbon, if gift exchange is a tradition in your home.
#4. Refresh the Powder Room
You might be amazed at how inexpensive it is to swap out an outdated sink in a cabinet with a pedestal style that makes a small space feel larger and more user-friendly. Bathroom fixtures – light bars, mirrors, towel racks – are a great way to refresh your indoor space quickly and usually without busting your budget.
#5 Brighten Your Main Entertaining Areas
Even little splashes of color and texture can make a big difference in how a room looks and feels. Consider painting an accent wall with rich, warm fall hues. Bring in some colorful chair cushions, interesting artwork and a variety of textures.
