With the holidays quickly approaching, you're sure to start having family and friends visiting more frequently. But is your home ready for all the extra traffic? Accomplishing some quick DIY projects before the start of the holidays can help you put your best home forward. Whether you want to install crown molding for a classic holiday look, replace doorknobs and locksets, add a fresh coat of paint to the guest room, organize your mudroom or front entry or replace old appliances, we have tips for all your holiday preparation projects.

1. Paint Your Cabinets

New cabinets give your home an extreme makeover. However, you don't have to break the bank to remodel your home with new cabinets for the holidays. Painting your cabinets is an inexpensive, quick DIY project that will leave them looking brand new and appealing to the eye.

2. Replace Old Appliances

Your holiday will probably be busy, especially if you're hosting some family gatherings or events. Whether you're preparing your favorite Christmas treats or turkey dinners, you should expect to use your kitchen appliances more during the holidays. So, remodel your kitchen by replacing old appliances with new ones. New appliances will not only give your kitchen a new look, but they’re also energy-efficient and help reduce your energy costs.

3. Replace Doorknobs and Locksets

Replacing doorknobs and lock sets throughout the house is an easy DIY project that will add value to your home. Also, it’ll give your house a new, fresh look guests won’t stop admiring.

4. Organize Your Mudroom or Front Entry

Since your mudroom is the transition space between the outside and inside of your home, almost everyone goes through it. You should ensure it’s clean and well organized by placing mats on both the outside and inside of the entry door. Also, make sure you have a drip tray and plenty of hooks for wet garments and umbrellas.

5. Remodel the Bathroom

The bathroom is among the most used rooms in your home during the holiday. As such, bathroom remodeling should be among your top holiday projects. Giving your bathroom a facelift will also help add value to your home beyond the holiday season.

Some easy DIY projects you can consider when remodeling your bathroom include upgrading fixtures and lighting. You may also consider painting wooden floors, installing a prefabricated shower, refinishing your tub and installing new sink faucets.

6. Add a Fresh Coat of Paint to Your Guest Room

This ranks highly among the top holiday preparation tips. Interior painting will leave your guest rooms looking beautiful and elegant. Make sure you choose a color scheme that meshes well with your decor to make your home look fresh.

7. Install Crown Molding

Installing crown molding in entertainment spaces and entryways gives your home a polished and sophisticated look. Crown molding is also suitable for curves and cover-ups. It gives your home relief from bald spots, leaving it nice and attractive and increases the value of your home, too.
