I am reminded of all the wonderful little plans I have this year for the holidays in Grandma’s House. I actually wasn’t planning on even having a tree (ducks as tomatoes are thrown at her from the crowd) but, of course, I caved! And now I am so excited for not only the tree but all the little decorations and plans I have to make this home holiday ready!

(The following is a contributed article.)

The holidays are coming up fast which means you don’t have a lot of time to get your home prepped and ready.

Whether you are going to be making the traditional Thanksgiving feast for your family and friends or hosting the Christmas festivities, it’s safe to assume that most of your holiday entertaining will be done in and around the kitchen and living area.

The kitchen is the heart of the home where everyone loves to gather, especially for holiday parties and dinners that are all about spending quality time with loved ones and eating fantastic food that you don’t get any other time of the year.

That means your kitchen and family room need a little upgrading before holiday season starts.

These 7 on trend upgrades will help you give your home a facelift before family and friends start arriving.

Reclaimed Wood

Reclaimed wood is the perfect way to upgrade your style quickly and give your home a rustic, cozy feel perfect for the upcoming holidays. It is available in many different colors and finishes, plus it’s easy to install by yourself.

There are many different ways you can incorporate reclaimed wood into your home. The easiest way is to create an accent wall using thin pieces of reclaimed wood wall paneling that are tacked to a large open wall.

You can also use reclaimed wood fitted over your mantel to give your fireplace an upgrade just in time to hang Christmas stockings. Reclaimed wood can also be used for countertops and flooring.

You can even mount hooks in a piece of reclaimed wood and hang it on the wall for a stylish place to hang all those coats during holiday parties.

Multipurpose Islands

One kitchen upgrade that can really improve your ability to host family and friends during the holidays is to invest in a multipurpose kitchen island.

These islands are usually quite long and are a great spot for people to sit and gather.

They are also multifunctional and usually have plenty of storage, a mini fridge, a wine fridge, a sink, and/or other useful tools built into them so you can use the island to prep and cook food, make drinks, or bake all while still interacting with your guests.

Quartz Countertops

When you are entertaining in the kitchen you need big style combined with hardcore durability so you don’t have to worry about hot pans, spills, stains, or any other messes that are sure to happen during holiday meals and parties.

Quartz countertops are beautiful and elegant, but they are also extremely durable. You can invest in quartz that looks like marble or go with a solid color such as black quartz countertops.

This cost effective option for kitchen countertops will give you the function that you need and the beautiful look you want for your kitchen during the holidays and year round.

Dark Colors

Living room colors have been going dark this year and changing the color of your living room or family room is a fantastic upgrade that you can easily get done before the holidays.

Rich and deep colors are ideal for holiday parties because they will make your family space seem warmer and cozier. Choose holiday hues like dark green or dark red if you want to make the space seem festive.

Or opt for a dramatic dark neutral like navy blue or charcoal gray and use that as a backdrop for fun and bright holiday decorations.

Big Canvas Prints

A great way to add a personal tough to holiday decorations is to use big canvas prints. Canvas prints can be customized in many different finishes that don’t look temporary or cheap and they add a lot of color and personality to a room.

For custom Christmas decorating get some big canvas prints made featuring holiday photos from the past, or your yearly Christmas card family portraits from the last few years.

Any fun family times can be put on a canvas print to create a unique and special decoration for holiday entertaining.

Vintage Style Appliances

Nothing says holiday nostalgia like jumping on the trend of installing vintage and retro style appliances in your kitchen.

You and your family members can gather around a vintage 50s style stove just like you gathered in grandma’s kitchen when you were young. Or you can serve eggnog and holiday treats from a vintage 40s style refrigerator.

Best of all vintage style appliances come in vintage colors meaning that you can rock a red suite of appliances in the kitchen or choose a cool blue or even pink.

Pet Safe Areas

Don’t forget the furbabies! If you have animals, then a practical upgrade is the addition of a pet safe area in the kitchen and family room.

This allows them to safely be a part of the celebration. Putting in built in sliding pet gates and doors can give your guests with pets or your own family pets a safe place to be corralled during the festivities so that they don’t get underfoot.

And installing pet gates and built in crate areas in the living room will give pets the space they need to rest safely when they need a break from all the excitement.
