Easy Upgrades for Your Home During the Holidays

Easy Upgrades for Your Home During the Holidays

The holiday season is approaching faster than expected, and the clock is ticking to get your home ready to host family gatherings. But cleaning isn’t the only thing you should be thinking about. With family members congregating in your home, this is also the perfect time to upgrade and liven up that space. Use a few of these easy upgrades for your home during the holidays to get you started.

Replace Your Kitchen Hardware

Our cabinet handles and faucets can have more of an effect on a room than we realize. Often, they provide a deep accent color to make other design features stand out. However, old and broken hardware can have the opposite effect on your style. Before you welcome your family into your home, replace these pieces with newer models.

Cover Your Baseboard Heater

If your home has 1950’s looking baseboard heating system, its appearance can take away from the rest of your home’s beautiful, modern appeal. These heaters can also prove unsafe for the younger members of your family and even your pets. To update its style to something more modern, and to maintain a hazard-free environment, consider purchasing a DIY replacement baseboard heater cover.

Switch Up Your Lighting

The lighting you use in a room greatly affects the atmosphere within it. As such, it’s crucial that you send the right message. Achieving this could be as simple as switching out your lighting fixtures or installing a few additional festive lights. Remember that the kitchen, in particular, is an area of the home that will need the most lighting—especially during the holiday season.

Apply a New Coat of Paint

Fresh paint on any old or worn-out surfaces is a great way to breathe new life into a furniture piece. This will also allow you to customize the item to better match the rest of your décor. It’s important to remember, however, that you’ll need to fix any damage to the furniture before you repaint to get the best results.

To make one of these simple upgrades even easier, reach out to EZ Snap™ Covers for a high-quality DIY baseboard heater cover. Affordable and stylish, our galvanized steel covers are guaranteed to never rust and enhance the appeal of your already beautiful home.
