GET YOUR HOME READY FOR THE HOLIDAYS
December is well and truly underway and so is the holiday season. Refresh your home to make sure it’s comfortable and welcoming for visitors, guests and for yourself.
Pop-in hellos, coffee dates, brunches and braais bring festive fun and special people into your home. This is a great time to spruce up your space and stock up on essentials.
Refresh the bathroom
If there is one room your day visitors will certainly be using, it’s the bathroom. Make sure this space is ready for them by refreshing a few things. A lovely smelling handwash in a beautiful dispenser and new handtowels are a simple way to give the loo space a mini makeover.
Stock up on glasses and mugs
Your standard sets may not be enough when your home is full. Be the host with the most and get a few extra bits and pieces to make sure everyone has what they need to enjoy a festive drink.
Having a few extra seating options during the holidays makes welcoming people into your home a breeze. Choose ones that can easily fold away or function as something else when not being used as seating. Stools, ottomans and benches can double as side tables when not being used as chairs.
Make overnight guests feel special at this meaningful time of year with a few thoughtful touches that bring warmth to your home.
Fresh towels for your guest room are a great way to pamper your loved ones and make their stay feel extra special. Remember to wash new towels before putting them out for use to create absorbancy and remove any excess fluff.
Adding a few items can make your guest room feel like new! Bring softness and texture in with a loose carpet or add faux botanicals in a small vase for a fresh look.
TOP TIP: Spend a night in your guest room if you can. It’s the best way to feel what it’s like spending a night in the bedroom and what it could use to make it more comfortable. Perhaps it’s chillier than your room and could use a blanket, maybe it’s warm and needs a fan.
