With many of us spending time with family and friends over Christmas, we all want our homes looking their best. In the busy festive period it’s not always possible to get those last-minute jobs done, so we’ve put together a list of three home improvements you can make before Christmas.
Small paint jobs
While fully redecorating the guest bedroom may be out of reach at this time of year, there’s still time to spruce up your exterior or interior features with a simple lick of paint. Think about your window panes and external doors that would benefit from a fresh paint job. The outside of your home is equally as important as the inside at Christmas because it’s likely you’ll have more guests knocking on your front door.
Christmas decorations, cards and ornaments can take up a lot of room in our homes and make your space look cluttered or leave you with insufficient storage for your guests. Putting up shelving is a relatively quick DIY job that can improve the overall look of your home.
Invest in soft furnishings
If you have furniture like sofas and chairs that are looking a little tired, investing in blankets, throws and cushions could help. Soft furnishings are a cost-effective and practical way to improve your home when you’re short on time during the festive period.
