No place like home for the holidays

Nov 12, 2017 by Jason Matthews



Is your home ready for the holidays? As the busy social season of errands and entertaining begins, that to-do list gets longer and longer, and you know that beyond finding the time to decorate there’s no realistic chance that you’ll have time to spruce up your interior spaces. Fortunately, Matthews Painting can take care of some one-day painting jobs that will make your home shine and add sparkle to your holidays. Here are five ideas to help make your holidays picture-perfect:

Kitchen cabinets and trim

We can’t help much with the Thanksgiving Day feast, but we can make sure that your kitchen is ready for the family and friends who do! A fresh coat of paint on your kitchen trim – baseboards, windows and doorways – makes the space clean and inviting. The day-to-day damage in this high traffic area, such as smudgy fingerprints that won’t come off or a general dulling of color from airborne cooking grease, takes its toll. Many homeowners find trim work daunting, but a fresh high-gloss coat or even a fresh color can make the difference. Consider a cabinet refresh and you’ll be all set for company!

A bathroom update

Holiday decorating often includes the high-traffic bathroom, and you’ll impress guests with seasonal scented candles, soaps or hand towels with the motif. Yet what really makes the difference for a party or family gathering is a fresh coat of paint. You don’t have to choose a holiday color for just a few weeks' time, but some combinations – say blue with silver, or a green with gold – look sharp all through the year.

Media or family rooms

Whether you’re having just a few friends over or an entire extended family, there’s no question that folks will be watching the big football match, carrying on the annual “It’s A Wonderful Life” movie tradition or playing a few friendly-competition video games. If you were to paint just one room in time for the holidays, this one’s a solid choice! Refresh the room as-is or add new touches, like an accent wall. Consider projector screen paint as an option for making the most of your space and your equipment.

Front hall or foyer entrance

As with the front door, this is the first impression when friends and family arrive. Chances are you’ll put some decorative touches outside, with tasteful spotlights or perhaps a wreath, but what about inside the door? A clean coat of paint makes for an immaculate and elegant entrance, but it doesn’t always have to be understated. One idea we like pairs a freshly painted wall with holiday art, either something new – snowmen, birds, gifts adorned with ribbons – or a classic painting you’ve had for generations.

Look up at the ceiling!   

Snowflakes or Hannukah stars suspended from the ceiling are another touch of holiday décor that makes a room sparkle, and of course there’s the traditional mistletoe too. Remember that when you decorate from the ceiling or along its lines – your treetop star, a string of cards or garland, for example – the eye is drawn upward. A coat of paint on the ceiling may be all you need to set the perfect scene. Give us a call today and we'll be on our way to help make your holidays memorable!
