The holiday season is fast-approaching, and whichever holidays you’re planning to celebrate this season, the festivities are likely to bring family and cheer straight to your front door. With the busy-ness of the next couple months, it can be hard to imagine getting any new home projects done before the new year. However, there is still plenty of time to spruce up parts of your home to truly wow the family members that may be coming and going throughout the holidays. We’ve compiled a list of five painting projects to spruce up your home for the holidays to amplify your home and impress anyone that might come through your doors.
1. Kitchen Cabinets
Kitchen cabinets can easily become worn-out and damaged as the years go by, and nothing can drag down an otherwise-incredible kitchen like cabinets that haven’t seen a touch-up in years. Even if your cabinets are in pristine condition, if they have an old finish, they’ll look dated and can detract from your home’s appearance. Refresh your space with some fresh paint on your cabinets, which can help you upgrade the aesthetic of your kitchen for your guests and for your enjoyment for years to come.
2. Accent Wall
While a full room of new paint can definitely elevate your space, you may not be ready to commit all four walls to a new color, especially a non-neutral color that you’re not 100% sure you’ll love. To change things up in your entertainment spaces with less risk, pick a bold color or any color you’d like and paint just one wall. If you don’t know where to start, we can help you pick a color that will fit your style.
Another way to make a good impression on your guests from the start is with a new and updated color in your entryway. Entryways are the introduction to your home, and you can easily take yours from just another hallway space to an area your guests will actually enjoy being in with a new coat of paint. Picking a deep color can make a nice statement and also function as a conversation starter throughout the season.
4. Front Door
If the entryway feels like too much of a commitment, you can easily make a great first impression by redoing your front door before the holidays. Take your normal brown door up a few notches with a fun shade of paint that will make you stand out not only to your guests, but also to the entire neighborhood. Allow your color choice to be inspired by your front landscaping or maybe even a favorite color to give your house a unique update.
You can easily update your entire home without completely repainting all your walls, simply by repainting only your ceilings. Taking your ceilings from boring white to a fun or non-neutral color can quickly improve the aesthetic of your house. Try a subtle change by asking your contractor to match your ceiling to your walls, or even go bold with an extremely dark ceiling to contrast a lighter color palette. For some ceiling painting inspiration, look at these beautiful Sherwin Williams photos in “Your Ceiling — The True Fifth Wall.”
