Get Your Dallas Home Ready for the Holidays

Thanksgiving is right around the corner. Is your Dallas home ready for the holidays? If you’re expecting an influx of guests this season, there are a few steps you can take to ensure you provide a welcoming and festive atmosphere straight into the New Year. Here are some expert tips for preparing your home for the holidays straight from your favorite team of Dallas real estate agents.

Freshen your home’s exterior
Provide a welcoming atmosphere before holiday guests even step inside your home. Give your front door a fresh coat of paint or apply another layer of wood stain to make your entry pop. Clean your gutters, tidy up your landscaping, make sure your porch lights have working bulbs, and hang a festive wreath on the door. If you happen to be selling your home this season, these tasks double as curb appeal boosters.

Spruce up your guest room
For those expecting overnight guests this holiday season, there are a few things you can do to make your friends and family feel at home. Give your guest room a good cleaning and put fresh linens on the bed, place a festive bouquet on the nightstand and light a scented candle to provide atmosphere. You can also put a small gift basket together with bottled water, homemade snack mix, soap and shampoo, and even a couple of fluffy robes.

Clean out your refrigerator
Your refrigerator will be busting at the seams with prep-ahead dishes and leftovers from November through January. Before Thanksgiving arrives, take the time to go through your refrigerator and throw away expired and duplicate items. Things you know you won’t be eating in the near future can go in the freezer. You’ll need all the space you can manage once the holiday parties start filling up your weekends.

Deep clean common areas
Rooms you know will receive a lot of foot traffic this season should be cleaned top to bottom. The living room, kitchen, dining room, and guest bathroom are good places to start. Eliminate cooking and pet odors with plug-in air fresheners in every room. Alternatively, potpourri and subtle candles can also add a nice touch and make your home smell wonderful.
