As the 1st December fast approaches, Christmas festivities loom large in everyone’s mind. Christmas is a time for celebration and spending time with family and friends, however, that also means hoards of people descending on your home! But, who’s complaining – it’s only once a year, so why not make the festivities as enjoyable as possible by ensuring your home is prepped and primed as much as it can be! Play host to your guests, and Santa Clause of course and add a little extra sparkle to your home this Christmas with these Bizzy Maid top tips…
#1 Hire a housekeeping service
Having the house clean and tidy will take a huge weight off your shoulders over the Christmas period. Whether you are expecting guests or not, having one less thing to worry on the run up to Christmas will be a huge help! We all know what a busy time of year this can be – between present buying, wrapping, and the many events to attend, it doesn’t leave much time at all for cleaning. That’s where Bizzy Maid come in! Hiring a housekeeper can be a brilliant way to help you prepare your home for Christmas and we can help with this. For the past decade we have been dedicated to providing cleaning and housekeeping services to families, busy individuals and the elderly across the areas of Redhill and Reigate, Crawley, Tunbridge, Maidstone and Tonbridge. If you are looking for a thorough, reliable and consistent service then don’t look much further than Bizzy Maid this Christmas. From ironing to vacuuming and washing up we do it all!
First things first, the best place to start when getting your house ready for Christmas is to have a declutter and organise! November is the perfect time to prepare and declutter before December begins and the mad rush is underway. Take time during this month to get the decorations down from the attic, dust them all off and organise what you want to put out and how you want your decor to look this year.
#3 Deck the halls
As the season rolls on and the John Lewis advert is finally released, it’s time to turn your home into a winter wonderland! Why not make an evening of it, get the Christmas playlist on and brew hot chocolate whilst you hang your decorations and put the Christmas tree up – an essential to every festive themed home! Keep things simple and choose your theme to go with the decor of your home, hang ornaments and help things come to life with strings of fairy lights!
#4 Plan for guests
Are you expecting a few extra bodies this Christmas? Having guests, expected or not, is a common occurrence around the Christmas period. If you’re hosting this year, make sure your guest bedroom is ready for visitors. It might have become the junk room all year, but now is time to clear out and clean up. Extra blankets, towels, slippers, a festive scented candle and even a hot water bottle will make your guests feel like it’s a home away from home and keep you as the ultimate host. Be prepared and it will leave you feeling more relaxed and readily available to enjoy the festivities.
#5 Stock Up
Another great way to prepare your home for Christmas is to stock up on festive treats, drinks and so forth! You never know when someone may drop by and stop in to say hello to you and your family at your home, so stay prepared by keeping biscuits, chocolate, drinks, mulled wine and much more in the cupboards. That way, if someone does drop in on you, you feel able to entertain them in full festive style! Another great tip is to keep a box or Christmas cards so you could quickly whip one out and write it if you needed to last minute.
