Design Changes & Remodeling Projects to Do Before the Holidays

Holiday season is right around the corner, and that means lots of festivities, celebrations, and houseguests coming your way. But before your in-laws and extended family roll in for your big holiday meal, why not dress up your home to make it cozier and impress your guests?
Getting your home ready for the holidays doesn't have to be a tiresome chore, and in fact, DIY projects can bring your family together during this busy time. In this article, we explore creative design changes and remodeling projects that you can make to ring in the holiday season with festive cheer.

Bring in a Kitchen Island

Modern kitchens look and feel a lot different than they did 50 years ago, and they've become a gathering place for both residents and guests over the holidays. To accommodate those extra helping hands, install a kitchen island to make prep work easy and convenient. For a portable cooking space that requires no installation, look for budget-friendly kitchen islands on wheels.

Refinish Your Cabinets

Just because your cabinets are old and out of style doesn't mean that you need to invest in brand new ones. Instead, you can give your cabinets a new look with a polished finish and brass hardware for a high-end update.

Install a Whirlpool

Nothing feels more soothing after a long day out in the cold and snow than a warm dip in a whirlpool. Depending on the whirlpool you choose, this can be a way for you to relax and unwind after exhausting hours of entertaining guests, or it can be a fun way to throw a party.

Feature Your Fireplace

If you are fortunate enough to have a fireplace in your home, then this should be the prime gathering area for holiday celebrations. You can do easy DIY projects like painting over the brick or refinishing the hardware. Or you can hire some help to replace wood trim and build a beautiful stone facade to create a rustic look. This is also an ideal time to consider the type of fireplace you have and make the switch to gas, electric, or wood depending on your preferences and lifestyle.
