Prep For The Holidays

Prep For The Holidays Using Paint 

November 3, 2023

The holidays are just a few short weeks away! If you are hosting family and friends for a meal, a party, tree trimming or other special event, you may be looking to refresh your entertaining spaces. One of the best ways to do this without breaking the bank or taking months to complete is by painting a few key areas before your guests arrive. 

Here are a few suggestions for holiday painting projects to get your home ready for the influx of family and friends in the weeks ahead. 


Brighten the Entryway or Foyer 

Remember that first impressions can only be made once. Your entryway is the first thing your guests will see when they enter your home. 

Are your walls scuffed from the constant traffic or from shoes being piled against the walls? Are there greasy fingerprints around the light switches that need to be cleaned? If you can answer yes to any of these questions, it may be a good idea to have your entryway or foyer professionally painted before your grandparents come over for the holidays.

Freshen Up A Guest Room 

While many of us may be thinking about a holiday meal for our guests, others are preparing for overnight guests who will need to spend some serious time in a guest room. If this is the case in your home, you may also want to consider a refresh in a guest bedroom.

Choose a new color and find coordinating bedding or simply add a new coat of the paint hue you already have while touching up the trim and baseboards. A new coat of paint can make a room look fresh and new and will have your guests raving about their accommodations. 

A Bathroom Reset 

There is no doubt that the kitchen and the bathrooms in a home see the most amount of traffic and wear-and-tear on the surfaces. From steaming showers to faucet spray, bathrooms see lots of moisture and water that can have your walls and ceiling looking less than stellar. 

Thankfully, bathrooms are small enough and have little furniture to move, which makes them great spaces to refresh before the company arrives for the holidays. 

Dining Area Transformation

If you love to entertain and the holidays are your prime time for family and friends to visit, then refreshing your dining area may be an optimal choice! 

Choose a new elegant color that will change the entire aesthetic of your dining room, making it a focal point of your holiday celebration.
