With summer winding down and fall around the corner that also means that the holidays aren’t too far away. Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years are all great times to enjoy the company of friends and family. But if you’re the host and your embarrassed by the look of your house you need to act fast. If you’re going to be hosting family and friends over the holidays you might be wondering what some simple home improvement projects are that can really improve the appearance of your home and impress your guests. Look no further than painting!
Painting is always a great way to breathe new life into your home or even a specific room. A fresh coat of color can leave your space feeling crisp, clean, and inviting and leave a great impression on your guests. Painting projects can be completed quickly too so if you act quickly you’ll have plenty of time to get these projects done before the holidays.
Here are 3 Painting Project Ideas To Get Your Home Ready For The Holiday Season
#1. Repaint or Refinish Your Front Door
It seems like such a small project but it can make a really big impact on your curb appeal. Your front door is one of the first things your guests will notice when they come to your home. If your front door is weathered, with peeling or flaking paint, dings, and dents, your guests are going to notice it. Repainting your front door will give your home a fresh and inviting new look whether you paint it the same color it was before or change it up for an entirely new look.
#2. Repaint Your Homes Entryway Or Foyer
After entering through your front door your guests are going to be in your entryway or foyer. You want to set the mood with an inviting new color scheme! Try to avoid dark colors if you can and go with something a little lighter that can help reflect any natural light and really brighten up the space to give it that fresh feeling.
#3. Repaint or Refinish Your Kitchen Cabinets
During the holidays a lot of time will be spent in the kitchen. Guests will gather there, you’ll be socializing, drinking wine, and cooking holiday appetizers and meals. If your kitchen cabinets are weathered and beat up from years of abuse it might be time to give them a fresh coat of color.
Fresh paint on your kitchen cabinets will dramatically improve the appearance of your kitchen and giving that shiny and new feeling. It’s much more affordable than a full kitchen renovation and still has an amazing impact on how your kitchen looks. You’ll receive plenty of compliments from your guests on how beautiful your cabinets look, trust us!
#4. Repaint Interior Trim
The interior trim in your home can take a lot of abuse and over the years can start to look pretty weathered. Repainting that trim is a great way to make any room “pop”. Repainting the trim around doors and windows, baseboards, crown moulding, chair rub-rails and more is a great way to improve the look of your home interior and it isn’t a huge project either.
#5. Refinish Any Interior Wood
The natural look of wood can improve the ambiance in any room of the home. Commonly used for stairs, railings, and balusters, wood finishing can degrade over time. Sanding and refinishing the wood surfaces within your home is a great way to freshen up your space and make the wood look nice and shiny.
