Just like every year, it is the most beautiful time of the year that we all look forward to. Getting away from our work schedules and spending a quality time making new memories with our family and friends, preparing and sharing grand Christmas meals and to tag along with family traditions.
Although there is lot to be done on our “to do list” such as shopping, baking, cooking and decorating we cannot cut off cleaning our house from the list. To make your life easier, here are some tips to get your home bright and sparkle this Christmas.
Make a good first impression
Making someone feel great when they first step into your home is one of the best things you can do. An attractive entrance can say a lot about who you are.
The moment a guest enters on your property the very first thing they will experience is your garden and the main door. In fact, it highlights clues to figure out the type of structure and arrangements to be found inside the house. Spend time on maintaining your garden; planting, pruning, watering, cleaning pathways etc will make a good first impression which your guest will be ‘wowed’.
The moment your guests enter from the main door, instantly they would breathe in the smell of the house. So spray natural fragrance or light up candles that will make your house smell incredible and bright.
More focus on the kitchen
What’s more fun than cooking and baking with your loved ones. Everyone gets a chance to be a little messy, prepare meals and try out new recipes.
On Christmas Eve, family and friends tend to spend more time bringing up conversations and enjoy tasting food in the kitchen. Kitchen area has become the heart of the house and it is important to keep the kitchen clean and organised.
Washing, rinsing and wiping your kitchen items and surfaces on a daily basis will not only keep them in good condition also will give a sparkling look on your kitchen. It is best to store your clean and polished kitchenware in a way that is easy to see and reach. Your oven plays a major role during this festive season. A sparkling clean oven creates less smoke and burn. This will allow your Christmas meals to smell good around the house and taste delicious. It’s worth hiring a professional oven cleaner in advance so that you will save time and less stress.
Organise festive waste
It is the time of the year where you like impressing your guests preparing way too much food according to their preferences. In fact, during this season festive waste goes up incredibly and with excitement we tend to forget organise waste efficiently.
Planning and writing down a list of things you want to buy will definitely keep you in over buying as well as save your money and time.
Instead of throwing away food, you can do a simple act of sharing the food with homeless, less fortunate or even a charity. It will make you feel good and self rewarding. As a result you will not fill up your trash bins with extra food and spread stinky odors around the house.
Clear out the unwanted
This is the point of the year where you look at your wardrobes, drawers or shelfs and make your mind up that it needs a clear out. Throughout these months, you might have collected a massive amount of unwanted or unused materials in your home.
You don’t want to take those for the coming New Year but there can be someone whom it will be useful for. Re-gift it someone or donate to a charity, they will be happy to accept it. It will not only make your home clean and tidy but it will make you feel good this Christmas.
No matter how much you enjoy Christmas holidays, it can be a stressful time of the year. These simple tips will enhance the value of your house and create a memorable pleasant experience for you and your guests.
