When you get the memo that you will be hosting the family
holidays this year in Westerly, it
is normal to be a little stressed. As a million questions run through your
mind and the unknown of how you’ll get everything done emerges, we are here to tell you that it can be a simple and organized
No matter if you are
having five or 50 guests over for the holidays, these
tips can help reduce your stress and ensure your home is safe and
- A storage-packed island will give you maximum space in the most important room during
the holidays—the kitchen. Everyone can help chop up veggies, cook up a storm
and utilize pull out counter tops for hot dishes.
After a full day of cooking, a kitchen island with hidden nooks and crannies allows
you to simply put all of the dishes away and say goodbye to your one-and-done
- The holidays are a great time for you to dress up your fireplace with up-to-date design trends. It’s
common for families to gather around the fireplace, and having yours well
decorated will make for a festive and inviting space. Whether you want a television or
various decorations hung above the mantel, the possibilities to add a personal
touch are everywhere.
- Before the holidays is the perfect
time to call in the professionals at Pella Windows and Doors in
Westerly to insulate and seal your windows. Keep your guests
warm in those rooms you rarely use. Reduce the chilly drafts by adding insulation,
or even replacement
to make sure everyone has a warm and cozy holiday.
- The winter
months can sometimes get to be a little dreary. Through such a cold season in Westerly, you might
struggle to find bright colors besides your friend’s ugly Christmas sweater or Grandma’s
cookie frosting. Get creative with indoor plants and flowers —this
will add some life and is a great outlet for a craft day.
- Whether you need a kids’ table or just need extra chairs,
make sure to provide enough easy seating and places to
your guests. Don’t forget about a cozy spot
to settle after a big Thanksgiving dinner, either.
- Everyone knows holiday food is the best. Touch up on your home, but also fine-tune
your favorite recipes. When your food rivals the beauty of your kitchen, your guests will want to come back to the best
kitchen in Westerly every year. If you don’t like cooking, have a little fun looking for
festive plates to put tasty treats on.
- Now is the perfect time to check or install your smoke alarms.
With all of the holiday madness going on, it is easy to be forgetful. No matter how great of a cook you are, sometimes things
go wrong in the kitchen—it is better to be prepared and keep your guests safe.
- While they may
collect dust during the rest of the year, dining rooms finally get the action they deserve around the
holidays. Whether you love a festive, themed table or a simple setting,
there are infinite up-to-date design options you can take advantage of. Add anything
from a grouping of candles to a bowl of pinecones to bring attention to the
center of the table as a wintry statement piece.
- With bay windows there
are endless possibilities to expand your
space and utilize a nook. Make use of your
untouched space and add tables, chairs or even a bench
with extra storage. Make a perfect spot
to reflect on your holidays and enjoy a cup of hot chocolate after a successful
no matter how many projects you can fit in
before the holidays, the most important part of the season is time with your loved ones. With the help of these tips, your home will be
safe and comfortable. There isn’t a better time to feel at home in
Westerly than the holidays. Toss in some comfy throw pillows and enjoy.
