Worried your home isn’t ready for Christmas visitors? You still have time, and we have the quick, easy ways to freshen your home without blowing the budget.
Light it Up and Make it Tidy
Start at the street. Take a good look at your home, and act like you are a once-a-year guest just pulling up for a cup of eggnog and a piece of pie. The days are shorter and more cloudy, and the leaves have fallen from the trees in your yard, which can all work to make it look a little drab and uncared-for. Get out the rake, clean up the leaves, and consider adding lights to walkways. New outdoor light fixtures on the house are also a great way to revitalize your front entryway, immediately making visitors feel warm and welcomed.
