Some Easy Decorating Tips for the Holidays

Spruce up your home to welcome holiday guests with some easy updates this year. Start with the entryway, add seating to the dining room, clear the clutter in the living room and turn your home office into a multifunctional space equipped for overnight visitors. With a few small changes, your home will be ready for the holiday season.

A Console in the Entryway

Your entrance foyer sets the tone for your home and makes an important first impression on your guests. Add a console table in your entryway if you don’t have one already so there is a place for keys, packages and gloves as people walk in. A mirror above the console and a small rug make the entry complete. Extra touches like seasonal artwork, wreaths and flowers make your entry festive for the holiday season.

Bench Seating in the Dining Room

If you are expecting your guests to stay for dinner over the holidays, think ahead and make sure you have enough seating. Benches in the dining room are trending right now, and bench seating can add more space for additional people around the table – especially if you are expecting children. Another alternative for more dining room seating is adding accent chairs. Armless accent chairs can give you the seating space you need. Choose chairs that match your dining room set or pick a style that blends well with the existing furniture in the room.

Clear the Clutter

Strategically placed storage pieces can help keep things organized and hide useful items out of sight while keeping them handy. Today there are plenty of options for storage in the living room and other areas of your home. Use a credenza for storage in the dining room and living room and add an armoire to hide the TV in the bedroom.

You can find lift-top cocktail tables with hidden storage, along with ottomans that hide the remote and magazines. TV consoles and entertainment units provide plenty of storage space behind closed doors.

Make your Office a Multifunctional Space

Create a convenient multifunctional space by turning your home office into a guest bedroom when visitors come to stay. Add a sofa sleeper that is a comfy spot to take phone calls by day and a bed for guests by night. Sofa beds have come a long way in terms of beauty and comfort in recent years, and you can find one in the style you want, from timeless classics to modern contemporary.
