Not sure what to do about getting your house ready for the holiday season? Let us help you out!

The holiday season has arrived, and while it can be one of the most fun and joyful times of the year, it’s also one of the busiest and most exhausting. There’s lots to do in and out of your home to prepare for and celebrate the holiday season.

To help make things as stress-free and efficient as possible, here are some tips for prepping your home for the holiday season to make it inviting, comfortable, and festive for your family and guests.


You’ll be adding lots of additional things to your house during the holidays – decorations, treats, presents, and extra people. To help make room for this and to ensure spaces don’t feel crowded, it’s a good idea to start your holiday preparation by decluttering.

Do a walkthrough of all spaces and get rid of any clutter that has built up. If you’re pressed for time, prioritize high-traffic areas. Declutter as much as possible to ensure you have space to add holiday touches and make the areas more inviting.

Deep Clean High Traffic Areas

The next step is deep cleaning areas where your family and guests will gather. Prioritize the living room, dining room, kitchen, and bathrooms. In addition to your regular cleaning routine, make sure you’re dusting all fixtures, cleaning windows, mirrors, and televisions, and wiping down all furniture.

As part of your deep clean, wash any china, glasses, or serving dishes that haven’t been used recently. Cleaning these dishes before the holiday rush ensures everything looks bright and fresh and will ease stress while you’re entertaining.

Add Holiday Décor Throughout

Once your house is decluttered and clean, you’re ready to add holiday decorations. This doesn’t have to be anything extravagant or ornate, but some small touches throughout your house can make a big difference. Start with the entryway by adding a wreath or garland to the front door. Candles, a centerpiece, some holiday pillows or towels, and some garland for the mantle are easy ways to add festive touches throughout.

If you’re planning to have out-of-town guests, try to add some decorations to your guest room too. This can be as simple as a Christmas pillow or blanket, seasonal hand towels, scented soaps, or a poinsettia on the dresser.

Think Through Some Finishing Touches

The final step for getting your home ready for the holiday season is thinking through additional touches that will make it more inviting, cozy, and festive for guests. A few candles with holiday scents can be a great way to make sure everyone’s in the Christmas spirit. Creating a playlist with holiday songs to play while guests are there is another way to make sure you create a great holiday mood in your house this year.

And once you have everything ready, make sure you take time to sit back, relax, and experience the holidays in your home!
