Ways To Improve Your Destin Home for the Holidays

December 17, 2019

With the holidays are swiftly approaching, it's time to get your Destin home prepared for visitors. Of course, there’s the usual trees lights and present wrapping that needs to be completed before everyone arrives. But is your house, itself, looking festive as it could? Or could it need some new chairs, lights and energy-efficient interior shutters?

If you think your guests deserve an inviting place to stay, try some of these tips to improve your home for the holidays.

Dress Your Windows With Energy-Efficient Interior Shutters

By installing plantation shutters on your windows, you give your home a inviting feeling that also highlights your holiday decorations. Plantation shutters also can effectively restrict sun glare during short winter days. They are perfect in places like the living room, so no one has to open presents with a annoying sunset hitting them in the face.

By improving your Destin home for the holidays by installing shutters, you get both style and energy-efficiency. That’s because when the weather becomes cold and windy, you can shut your shutters to provide an energy-efficient assist. Plantation shutters have been called the top window coverings to block air flowing through your windows -- and that keeps the nice air inside and the wintry air out.

Of course, if you are looking to pair energy-efficiency with durability, you will want to use a faux wood interior shutter, like our Polywood® plantation shutters. Polywood is up to 70% more energy-efficient than basswood shutters and up to 1600% more energy-efficient than stock aluminum blinds. You are able to even cover your specialty-shaped windows with Polywood plantation shutters, ensuring all your windows will look great while still maintaining a even temperature in your home. 

’Tis The Season For Updated Furniture In The Living Room

Now that your windows are covered, you should look at what friends and family will be sitting on. If your furniture pieces are beginning to show their age, the holidays can be a great time to upgrade. By replacing disheveled sofa, or putting a couple leather chairs by the fire, you can make a feeling that’s perfect for lounging around. Plus, your guests will be cozier sitting on furniture that hasn’t been around since the Great Depression. After all, that book can’t level your couch forever. 

Decorate Each Room In The House

You hung the ornaments and decorated the main rooms in holiday flourish. But there’s no greater feeling for your overnight guests than falling asleep to a touch of holiday magic in their bedroom. And a tiny wreath in the kitchen can raise your spirits when you’re stressing about getting everything in the oven.

Decorations are better when they aren’t overblown, and try not to feel like you need to cramseveral tinseled pine trees. But a small bit here or there can do a lot for your holiday mood.

Improve Your Destin House For The Holidays By Replacing Ineffective Lighting Fixtures

Making sure that your lighting fixture is right for your needs should be on your holiday list.

New chairs, decorations, and energy-efficient plantation shutters are appreciated, but it may not matter if they are sitting in the dark. Improving your home for the holidays should include upgrading ineffective lamps and chandeliers. Your floor lamp may seem fine when it’s just you at home, but when friends and family come calling, you’ll need plenty of adequate lighting.

Most lights are easy to put in and can do wonders for an area. TheylLighting can fix room shadows in the corners. If new lights aren’t warranted, just make sure your fixtures don’t have any burned-out bulbs. And using a dimmer switch will help you to adapt the fixtures against your holiday fairy lights.
