Smart Tips for Preparing Your Home for the Holidays

By planning in advance, you can take the stress out of holiday prep and spend more time relaxing with your family. The following tips from AFI Insurance in Denver, CO can be helpful in preparing your home for holiday guests and events.

Clean and Declutter Living Spaces  

Clean and declutter living spaces to create a relaxing, comfy home environment. Clear out your entryway, living room and kitchen as these are the areas guests are more likely to gather. Wash curtains and windows and professionally clean your floors. Decorate key areas to add a holiday touch throughout your home.    

Stock Up Bathroom

Deep clean and stock bathroom(s) before holiday guests arrive. Make sure you have extra toilet paper and paper towels within easy reach. Stock up on such toiletries as hand soap, body soap, shampoo and conditioner for those who forget to bring these personal items along.

Clean and Stock Kitchen

Start with a clean kitchen for inspiration to prepare holiday meals. Clean your oven and stove and clear out your refrigerator to make space for what you need to prepare holiday feasts. Plan your menus in advance to include drinks and desserts. Shop early to ensure you have all you need to prepare delicious meals for your family.

Prepare Guest Room for House Guests

Tidy the guest room to stay over relatives and friends. Wash guest linens, blankets/comforters, and towels in advance and set them aside for when guests arrive. By adding fluffy pillows, scented candles and a basket of holiday treats to your guest room, you’re sure to make them feel welcomed and loved.  

Update home Insurance

Update home insurance to protect you (and your guests) against the risk of accidents during the holidays. To learn more about home insurance options and costs, contact AFI Insurance in Denver, CO.
