It’s that special time of year where we spend more time than ever with the loved ones in our life.
Whatever the holidays mean to you, your home is likely to be the hub of it all. Maybe you’re teaching your kids how to play dreidel this Hanukkah, singing Kwanzaa songs, or dreaming of a decadent Christmas dinner.
Aside from encouraging us to indulge, play and spend time with loved ones, celebrating the holidays at home can also rekindle our love for décor. Many of us start to imagine upgrading our kitchens to prepare glorious feasts, and expanding our living spaces to accommodate family from near and far in future years. It’s never too late to create the perfect, magical space. Read our tips below to make last minute holiday home improvements, and plan for an even bigger, better holiday renovation next year.
There’s still time to….
- Upgrade your appliances for the perfect Christmas kitchen. A new oven could mean a holiday meal cooked to perfection with a little less effort on your part. An ideal Christmas kitchen would include a bigger refrigerator, to stock up on your family’s favorite holiday treats.
- Perhaps your appliances are in good shape but your furniture could use an upgrade. Your dining table should be the centerpiece this holiday season.
- Create a cozy kid’s corner for your children to play. Grab beanbags, cushions and games to make the perfect nook.
- Repaint in cool, timeless winter kitchen colors.
- Decorate with holiday kitchen rugs and holiday kitchen curtains.
- Create a dazzling winter kitchen with fairy lights.
The right appliances can help you cook the perfect holiday feast!
Holiday Renovations for Next Year
The holidays highlight the best things about how your kitchen works for you, and its flaws. When you’re hosting, reliable appliances and sufficient counter-space can make all the difference to the success of your holiday meal, and whether making it is a joy or a duty.
Consider the following to stay in the festive spirit, year-round:
- Remodel your kitchen to create an open plan kitchen-dining experience. This type of space can make it easier for guests to mingle and for you to enjoy their company while you cook.
- Longing for the party to continue? Consider an addition to house a guest bedroom and bathroom, so guests can stay in comfort for longer.
- Take the “kids corner” idea one step further, and finish and remodel your basement to create a kids play space for your littlest family members to visit year-round. No children to cater to? Your basement could make the perfect living space for grown-ups: consider a basement bar, games room or wine cellar.
