The holidays are fast-approaching. While it should be a season filled with joy and celebrations, it can often be a time of stress (especially if you’re hosting)! To help you get your home ready for the holidays, we’re sharing some of our favorite tips to jumpstart your holiday preparations:
Clean Your Lighting Fixtures & Ceiling Fans
Let’s face it, lighting fixtures can get pretty grimy (and most of us don’t remember to clean them as regularly as we should). Before you host any holiday celebrations, take the time to clean your light bulbs, fixtures, and fans. Take the time to rid them of dust, grime, and bugs now and they’ll stay bright and clean throughout the holiday season.
Find the Perfect Dining Room Chandelier
Chances are your dining room gets a lot of use during the holidays. To make sure your dining room is warm, welcoming, and functional, read our tips on selecting the perfect chandelier for your space. With the right chandelier, your dining room will be the perfect spot for entertaining guests from Halloween to New Year’s Day.

Whether you’re hosting a holiday dinner or overnight guests, take the time to spruce up your powder room and guest bath. Add a candle to the vanity, stock the cabinet with plenty of towels and toilet paper, and make sure your bathroom has ideal lighting.
