In many cases, it’s one of the few times when you can all gather under one roof and enjoy each other’s company. You may have relatives who live in other cities or perhaps even other states. Kids who went off to college are now back for a few weeks and grandkids have time off from school, too.
Before you open your doors to welcome everybody you will want to make sure your home is ready for the family gathering. What’s this mean? It could simply be making sure the house is clean from top to bottom and the guests rooms are ready to receive visitors or the bathrooms are sparkling.
It could also mean you have a lot of work to do in terms of updating the old home and its surroundings. Sure, you can add some garland here, a few scented holiday candles over there, too, and turn on the lights to the Christmas tree.
However, if you really want to make a statement, you can add a spectacular new area rug to the floor of one of the rooms where family will congregate. You may also want to consider installing new carpet where worn patches are showing or add updated tile, vinyl or hardwood floors.
However you decide to spruce up your home to get it ready for family gatherings this holiday season, Carpets America has ideas.
