This weekend deck up your home, spread the light of happiness

Cooler temperatures, festival of lights and hearty feasts... it’s time to prep your home for all the seasonal fun! Whether you’re hosting a big or small group of family and friends, decorating and decluttering around the house can make party prep easier and more enjoyable for everyone. With that in mind, here are some top tips to create functional and stylish spaces that are easy to keep clean and tidy throughout the festivities. Making these small updates around the house now will keep your most-used spaces clean and tidy to ensure family and friends are comfortable and happy.

Delightful décor. Make any room feel warm and welcoming. Add pops of colour to a kitchen backsplash, reading nook or old side table for a fresh new look that will wow your guests. Try to give a new look to your home by buying new curtains and sofa cushions. It could change the entire look of the house. Bright colours like blue, orange and yellow can do wonders to your home.

Shuffle the setting. Shuffling the setting of your home can break the monotony of your home. Change the placement of the showpieces and wall hangings along with the furniture for a completely new look.

Light up every nook and corner. When you light every corner of your home it gives a  festive feel. Floating candles and designer colourful candles are also a good option.

Spotless spaces for kids. All gatherings need a space for kids to have fun and play together. While setting up for arts and crafts, line the table with a clear, textured liner to prevent crayons, markers or glue from damaging surfaces. When it’s time to clean up, simply wipe the liner or toss it in the dishwasher.

Get your guest room ready. If you have family staying overnight, it’s time to get your guest room in shape. Dress up drawers and closet shelves. Elevate your home décor and guests will appreciate how clean and homey the space feels during their stay.

Bathroom basics. Once you’re done prepping the guest room, don’t forget about the guest bathroom. Keep styling stations and the bath clean and tidy with shelf liner and a bath mat.
