Expecting lots of visitors to your home this Christmas? Don’t delay, start getting ready to welcome your guests into a home that you can be proud of. This is a great time of year to have a bit of a clear out, finish any redecorating that you’ve been putting off and make sure all of your rooms feel warm, cosy and welcoming this winter. Here are just a few ideas of how you can get your home ready for Christmas…
Enjoy a Warm and Cosy Living Room
At the heart of any home, a warm and cosy living room will be loved and enjoyed by guests young and old. Clear out any clutter, plump up some luxurious cushions, lay a soft rug under foot and have sturdy side tables at the ready for drinks and nibbles. A wood burning stove is the ultimate in winter hygge and why not add a bit of sparkle and soft lighting with candles. For the windows, full height, tracked or tier-on-tier shutters will not only look fantastic, but they will keep the heat in on colder days too, and the easily adjustable louvres give you the option to flood the room with light during the day or create privacy in the evenings.
We love how these Cafe Style Shutters create a warm and cosy ambience for this living room whilst still letting lots of light in from the open shutters at the top.
Create a Mini Sanctuary in Your Bathroom
A clean, fresh and tidy bathroom will make any guest love your home even more. Make sure any old toiletries or cleaning products are hidden away and all surfaces are clear of any mould or mildew. Stacked fluffy towels will create a luxurious feel and some scented candles will give your bathroom a sumptuous spa-like aroma. For the windows, waterproof plantation shutters will add an extra touch of class to your bathroom and create good privacy without blocking out all of the light.
This bathroom is smart, sophisticated and ooozes calm and serenity. The Tracked shutters provide complete privacy for the bathroom when closed, but the option to open them up completely, allows light to flood into the room when not in use.
A Kitchen for Entertainment and Delight
The best party crowds almost always end up in the kitchen so make sure your cooking space is fit for spectacular festive gatherings. Clear out the cupboards of any out of date foods to make way for a feast of tasty treats and stock up the wine cooler. Hanging pendant lights will create a chic and classy ambience and comfy stools at a kitchen bar will give your guests somewhere comfy to perch. For the windows, Cafe Style Plantation Shutters are very popular as a smart backdrop to kitchen sinks and allow you to enjoy the view whilst still maintaining some privacy.
This modern and stylish kitchen benefits from full height tracked shutters that can be opened for full light or closed to create a bit more privacy from the neighbouring property.
Make Your Guest Room Feel Homely
Create a home from home with a guest room that makes your guests feel relaxed and well rested. A large comfy bed with crisp, high quality cotton linen is a must and plush cushions will make for a good night’s sleep. Clear out a drawer or two for your guest’s belongings and provide some hanging space in a wardrobe or with a free standing hanging rail. Keep the room feeling warm and cosy with some good quality plantation shutters that will trap heat in, even on the coldest of nights.
This lovely and inviting bedroom is made even more snug and cosy with the addition of high quality solid wood plantation shutters.
Creating a warm and inviting home ready for your Christmas festivities can be great fun and not only will your guests enjoy your efforts, you’ll benefit from all of the hard work too. Get ready early and look forward to a fun Christmas in your gorgeous and elegantly styled home.
