A lot of people have the old remodeling bug right about now, and they should if they want their homes all spruced up in time for the holidays. There are lots of things you can do now and even in the next few weeks to make your place spiffy.
The powder room or half bath is a good place to maybe add a coat of paint, buy a few accessories or get some nice new towels. As for the kitchen, if a full remodel is out of the question, how about a nice, new faucet, or just replacing the hardware on your cabinets? Those are economical and add a nice touch. And, they can even be do-it-yourself projects.
Here is another great thing you can do before a party. Go outside and clean and oil your front door, polish the hardware, clean up your house numbers and even clean the glass on the outdoor lights. You won’t believe how much this brightens everything up and all it takes is a little elbow grease. And while, you’re out there, check the front yard to see if you might want a little fall color in a potted plant or two near the door.
