6 Home Upgrades for the Holidays

Quick and affordable solutions to upgrade your home in Stuart, FL

Are you planning on hosting Holiday events this year and want to wow your visitors with a spruced-up home? Not only do you have the time, but your improvements don't have to be expensive! Here are some cost-effective upgrades you can do to make your home shine!

1. Install a New Backsplash

Backsplashes made of tile are both attractive and practical. You can go with a vibrant color to brighten up your kitchen, a cheerful design, or a neutral tone to match your other finishes. Tiles made of stone, ceramic, and porcelain are all excellent choices. However, a glossy or polished surface is recommended since it will be easier to clean up any messes that come its way!

2. Brand New Countertops

Upgrading your countertops is another way to spruce up the kitchen. Even though cabinets and flooring are essential, you’d be amazed at how much of a difference counters can make. Solid surface countertops are cost-effective, non-porous, and moisture and heat resistant. This means you can lay out floured dough, cut it out with cookie cutters, and even place a hot baking pan on top of it.

3. Renovate Your Fireplace

If you have a wood-burning fireplace, an automated electric or gas fireplace insert can be a good option. (Electric solutions are usually more cost-effective.) You can start a fire with the push of a button and instantly create a merry-go-round ambiance. Why not surround your fireplace with stone or porcelain tile while you're at it?

4. Look for New Window Coverings

Although window treatments are necessary for light filtration and privacy, they are sometimes ignored as an interior design element. Window treatments could be just the thing to spruce up your home in time for the holidays. Custom treatments can be created to meet your specific needs and preferences, as well as to complement the rest of your home's decor.

5. Buy a New Area Rug

An area rug is a terrific way to modernize your living room, foyer, hallway, or dining room without breaking the bank. It will insulate your area, absorb sound, bind your design together, and warm it up. Area rugs made to order can be made in any size, color, pattern, or shape. You can even acquire a seasonal rug for the holidays and then replace it with a neutral design for the rest of the year.

6. Have New Flooring Installed

Expecting guests during the holiday season is a great excuse for new flooring, whether it's the dining room, living room, or where they'll be staying in the guest room.

If new flooring is on your wish list this year, now is an excellent time to install them rather than later. Most flooring installations can be done in a day or two, unlike other restoration projects that can take weeks or months.
