How to Get Your Home Holiday-Ready

Posted November 1st, 2021

The holiday season is quickly approaching. In just a few short weeks, families will begin their holiday gatherings and preparations. There are so many things to do to prepare for the holidays outside of shopping for gifts and planning festivities. Getting your home ready is vital if you’re planning to host this year.

Get your Home Holiday Ready

In the days leading up to guests arriving you will want to make sure:

● Your house is picked up and any clutter is put out of sight.

● You’ve cleaned all your dishes, floors, and countertops.

● You’ve finished any last-minute gift shopping.

● You’ve prepared or coordinated any food that is needed for the party.

It is just as important to prepare your home in the months leading up to the holidays as well. Do you have all the appliances that you need to host large gatherings? These purchases can take some time and planning so it’s important to start thinking about these things now!

Appliances You Need for the Holidays

Cooking Appliances

Most holiday gatherings are planned around meals. If you’re planning to make a big dinner or even just appetizers for your guests this year, you’ll want to make sure you have the perfect oven, range, and/or cooktop to make things easier for you. Take a look at our latest blog post on tips to find the right cooking appliances for the holidays.

Kitchen Cleanup Appliances

With several guests, dirty dishes can pile up quickly. Having the right dishwasher in your home will make cleanup easier and save you the stress of worrying about chores when you should be enjoying time with your family.

You will need to start by deciding if you want a built-in dishwasher, portable dishwasher, or a single or double dishwasher drawer. Figure out what works best for your kitchen space. If you are looking to upgrade your dishwasher this year, consider looking at some of these features that can make cleanup easier.

● Models with Wi-Fi capability can allow you to easily schedule your dishwasher to run once your guests are gone.

● Many models have third rack options which add additional space ideal for large utensils.

Adjustable dishwasher racks can help you make space for the dishes that you need to have cleaned. Adjust the racks to make space for larger pots and pans when you’re cleaning up after preparing your meals and then adjust the racks to fit more plates and serving bowls after mealtime.

If you don’t already have a dishwasher built in, you may consider a portable one as it can be tied into your kitchen sink.

Other things to consider when it comes to keeping the kitchen cleaned up during the holidays would be garbage disposals and trash compactors. Both items can help you take care of any leftovers and scraps that come with cooking. These will make it easier to keep your kitchen mess-free during the holidays and cut down on your clean up time.

A Refrigerator That Meets Your Demands

When you are preparing large meals, it is important to have a place to store the ingredients, prepared food, and leftovers. Making sure that you have the right refrigerator to store your holiday cookies and leftover turkey is important. There’s nothing worse than struggling to find space after mealtime and having to decide which leftovers you will be able to keep.

Wondering where to start? That all depends on what you want or need. You need to consider how much space your kitchen has for a refrigerator and how much interior space you need. This will help you narrow down your options and decide which style of refrigerator will work best for your family. Make sure you have a refrigerator that gives you the space and features you need to get through the holiday season.
