5 quick fixes to prep your home for the holidays

Hosting Thanksgiving requires a lot of time and effort. With everything you’ve got cooking up in the kitchen, how do you find the time to get your home guest-ready? Kliethermes Homes and Remodelers wants you to know that your holiday home prep doesn’t have to be stressful this year! If you’re looking for some quick fixes to get your home ready for guests, check out these 5 speedy and cost-effective renovation tips.


Upgrade your hardware

Looking to spruce up the cabinets in your kitchen or bathroom? Kitchen and bathroom renovations can be expensive and time consuming, but just updating the hardware can change the entire look of your space in just a few minutes. Try a bold brass or a hammered silver look to modernize your home.

Add a fresh coat of paint

If you’re looking for an easy project that makes a BIG difference to your space, a fresh coat of paint can change the look of any room! Choose a color that fits into your home’s design, but pushes the envelope a little! You won’t be disappointed.



Adjust the lighting

Old fixtures can easily date your home, but new ones can give any room a fresh look! Ditch your outdated fixtures for modern industrial lighting, which offer attractive alternative metals and rich tones. Malleable metals are also becoming increasingly popular, and can be tailored to the spatial needs of any home. This option might be a little more expensive, based on the fixtures you choose, but the cost will be worth the outcome!



Give Your Cabinets a Facelift

As mentioned before, a full-blown kitchen renovation isn’t feasible to tackle right before you have guests over for Thanksgiving. You know what is totally cost-effective and won’t take as much time? Painting your cabinets! Choose off-white, dark grey or navy and your kitchen will instantly look more stylish and contemporary!

Throw Down a Rug

How long has that rug been sitting under your living room furniture? We often update our furniture and other décor, but forget about what’s under our feet! Adding a patterned, trendy rug can change the entire style of a room, making it more inviting and cozy for your guests.

Travis & Mindy McCubbin

The one thing we really appreciated was how good they were about the budget, and being open with us about any changes there may be. They helped lay everything out in detail up front and helped us to meet what our target was. I really had a cost estimate in mind and was concerned about staying within our budget. They all did a really great job at keeping it within the budget we laid out in the beginning.
