The holidays certainly feel different this year, but that doesn’t mean we can’t still make the most of them. The first step in doing so is getting your home prepped for a festive and peaceful season. Here are a few quick tips from the team at G&H Management on how to make the most out of your home this season:
Be mindful about holiday decorations.
We all love to dress our homes — from stockings to garlands, tinsel, and everything in between. It’s all in good fun, but it is important to remember that some of your favorite decorations can also be a fire hazard if you’re not careful about placement. Do your best to keep them away from wood-burning fireplaces, radiators, space heaters, and large appliances.
Clean common spaces top to bottom.
When celebrating the holidays at home, we often spend the majority of our time in living rooms, kitchens, and dining rooms. Take time to ensure that all of these areas are dust-free, freshly vacuumed, and thoroughly wiped down. This way, everyone can enjoy the holiday in a clean and comfortable environment.
Make sure that your kitchen is organized and optimized.
The kitchen is arguably the busiest room in the house, especially during the holidays. Before getting the feast prepared, get your kitchen up to snuff. Get your special plates and silverware washed and ready to go, organize your refrigerator and pantry, and make a detailed grocery list so that you only need to make one trip to the grocery store.
