The best time to give your home a quick makeover is right before the holidays. Here are 10 easy home improvement ideas that will help your home look and feel ready for when friends and family start arriving.
1. Upgrade your lighting
If your home has outdated interior or exterior lighting, it is time to start thinking about updating your fixtures to more modern lights. Light fixtures are an easy and cost-effective way to upgrade and transform your home.
2. Touch up your home’s exterior
There are many ways to change up your home’s exterior for the holidays. Adding seasonal plants and flowers to the exterior can brighten the front of your home. Think about putting up some holiday lights and decorations strategically to give the front of your home a little pop of holiday spirit.
3. Liven up your home with holiday accents
You don’t have to put up a lot of decorations to show the holiday spirit. The holidays are already busy. By adding small accents such as throw pillows, wreaths, and garlands you can transform your home into a holiday wonderland without making it look too busy.
4. Make sure your furniture and decor are aligned
The biggest design mistakes come from a non-cohesive room. Ensure your home is ready for your holiday guests by making sure you have a cohesive design flow from room to room.
5. Declutter your home
There is such a thing as too much home decor. Cleaning out old household items is a quick way to refresh your home during the holiday season. Don’t forget to do some deep cleaning while you are at it to start your new year with a fresh clean home.
6. Add a fresh coat of paint to your walls
Painting walls are not something we all think about needing to improve every year but after a couple of years, walls do get dirty and a fresh coat of paint can help refresh your home.

Switching out old, outdated door knobs is one of the easiest home improvement DIYs that can make a big impact on the look of your home.
