As we kiss the warm days good-bye for the next few months, we go into hibernation as the days get shorter and the weather gets colder. No longer are we outside on the patio for a nice barbeque, but inside our homes where we can stay warm. The colder season is also the busiest season when it comes to having guests over. Between the holidays and neighborhood dinner parties, it seems like company is always around. Since you’ll be inside quite a bit over these next few months, here are some tips to help you create an inviting, cozy home.
1. Create a warm welcome
Can you imagine walking into a home that had absolutely nothing in its entryway? It would feel bare and cold. Set the tone for your home and spruce up your entryway. Something as simple as a rug at the door and some greenery next to it can go a long way. For bonus points, have a candle burning on your entry table.
2. Move furniture around
When was the last time you moved your furniture around? If it’s been quite a few years since you have moved in, it might be time for a change. Moving a few furniture pieces here and there can create a sense of openness in a room, especially if you have bought some pieces for your home since you first moved in. If you’re also looking for a way to spruce up old furniture, a cozy new throw can work wonders.
3. Make it smell good
There is nothing like a holiday scented candle or a warm spiced candle during the cold winter season. You would be surprised to see (or smell) how long of a way that a pleasant scent in your home goes.
4. Freshen up your carpets
Speaking of scents, when was the last time you cleaned your carpets? We’re not talking about a good vacuum, but a real deep clean. Carpets can actually make or break the smell and overall cleanliness of your home. If you have pets or children, your carpet needs a deep clean at least twice a year. When you book with Pure Carpet Cleaners, the pure cleaning process only uses natural-based citrus solutions to clean this large area of your home. This will leave it smelling fresh and clean all season long. And of course, you don’t have to worry about chemicals getting near your children and pets.
5. Make it sparkling clean
There is just something about a clean house that makes it comfortable and attractive to guests. When your home is clean, you’re able to relax rather than focus on the dirtiness of the place. Take a day to deep clean your home. Put on some fun, holiday music, and give a good wipe down to your kitchen and bathrooms and vacuum to get the gunk up from the floors! Don’t forget about the carpet cleaning! Book your carpet cleaning appointment online to add the finishing touch to your sparkling clean home.
The holidays are quickly approaching. Use these simple tips to make your guests never want to leave your house! After all, there really is nothing like a clean, comfortable home.
