The holiday season brings festive joy and the opportunity to entertain houseguests.
While this time of year is enjoyable, it can also be stressful and hectic if your home lacks the kind of decorative touches and features that will really leave a positive impression on guests.
One of your worries may be over your home’s inadequate accommodations for overnight guests. Perhaps you’re just wishing your home decor had a more appealing sense of style and character.
Is dealing with that ever-present excess clutter that needs to disappear before your guests arrive wearing you down?
Try using some of these home holiday tips to make your house a more inviting space this festive season (and year-round).
1. Convert a spare room or office into a guest room with a wall bed
One of the home holiday tips worth considering is to create a comfortable guest room using the spare room in your house.
The best way to accomplish this is by having a space-saving custom wall bed (also known as a Murphy bed) installed.
Wall beds fold up when they’re not needed, which allows them to be used in smaller spaces. You could even incorporate this guest space into your home office.
Organized Interiors can custom-fit your wall bed to the exact requirements of your space, either as a standalone unit or as part of a beautiful custom cabinetry unit.
As these instructions explain, they’re easy to use and every bit as comfortable as sleeping on a conventional bed.
The convenience and comfort of a wall bed in your cozy guest room will ease your mind, knowing your overnight guests are well taken care of with this high quality sleeping surface.
2. Impress your houseguests with classy custom bar cabinetry
Custom bar cabinetry adds a touch of class to any space. Your holiday houseguests will be impressed by one of the many elegant custom bar cabinetry designs available from Organized Interiors.
Our design experts can create a bar as part of a larger custom cabinetry unit, mini-bars for smaller spaces, and island-style bars. Whichever design you choose will enhance the decor and entertaining capabilities of your home.
3. Add beautifully crafted custom wine cabinetry
Any good holiday gathering inevitably involves the enjoyment of some quality wines.
If you’re a collector who hasn’t yet invested in a high quality wine storage system for your home, consider the benefits of choosing custom wine cabinetry.
Regardless of your available space and the size of your wine collection, Organized Interiors has the ideal wine storage solution for you.
For larger collections, we can create a beautifully designed walk-in closet wine cellar or a wine cellar room that can also function as a unique spot for entertaining holiday guests.
Smaller wine collections are perfect for our reach-in wine closet design. They’re ideal for keeping your bottles stored in the optimal dark lighting conditions, while taking up little space in your home.
4. Add a modern electric fireplace to enhance room ambiance
Adding an electric fireplace is one of the home holiday tips that’s guaranteed to boost the ambiance of any room. Any room featuring one is sure to be a popular space for your holiday guests.
Modern electric fireplaces give you the charm and appeal of a roaring fire without any of the mess and headaches of wood burning fireplaces. And you’ll still enjoy the pleasant heat that radiates from the fireplace’s energy efficient ceramic heating system.
5. Add a stylish entertainment unit
Some of these home holiday tips can be incorporated into the design of a stylish entertainment unit.
A customized entertainment unit becomes the focal point of any room where holiday guests are gathered. Your bar and fireplace, along with your audio and video equipment, can all be housed in a custom-fit entertainment unit.
There are a wealth of entertainment unit design options to choose from, such as lighting features and wood finishes.
6. Control your clutter with helpful organization and storage solutions
Nothing worries a homeowner who’s entertaining guests more than how tidy their home is.
Even with the aesthetic improvements that the ideas in these home holiday tips bring to any space, their benefits will be offset by the presence of excess clutter.
Stuffing clutter into closets before guests arrive isn’t a practical option. Keep your home clutter manageable with useful organization and storage solutions that make this an easy task.
Custom closet organizers and our bedroom storage solutions are your best tools for the job of consistently keeping your home tidy.
