Getting Your Home Ready for Christmas
With just weeks left to go, now’s the time to start putting together your Christmas to-do list. Getting the house ready for the festive season takes a lot of organisation and planning. There’s a surprising list of tasks to get done so if you want to actually enjoy the lead up to the big day, you’re going to want to start ticking off that list as soon as possible.
Here, we’ll look at some of the main jobs to add to your to-do list in order to get the home ready for Christmas.
The big clean
One of the main jobs you’ll need to do before you can put up those festive decorations, is clean. While the living room is the obvious place to start, research shows that the bathroom tends to be the most important cleaning task before Christmas. Around 31% of those surveyed say they prioritise bathroom cleaning first.
Ideally, you’ll want to give the living room, bathroom and kitchen a thorough clean. In the living room, don’t forget to pull out the furniture to hoover and clean underneath it. You’ll likely be moving things around to fit your Christmas tree into the room, and you don’t want to have to clean at the last minute.
Once you’ve got the cleaning taken care of, you can start to focus on the decorations. Do you have everything you need to decorate the home? If not, make a list of the things you still need to buy.
Include everything from the tree decorations to the lighting and accessories. You’ll find a great range of luxury Christmas decorations at Cox & Cox. Don’t forget the finishing touches too such as wreaths to hang on the door.
Another job to add to your list, is general repairs. This is a great time of year to fix those small things such as a wobbly toilet seat. If you’ve got guests coming, you’ll want to ensure these little repairs are taken care of before they arrive.
These are the main jobs we prioritise as we look to get the home ready for Christmas. If you start now, you’ll be able to relax closer to the big day. If you really want to set the scene, why not give the home a fresh coat of paint too? This will brighten up the home, while also making it much nicer to relax in during the festive season.
