15 May 3 Ways To Spruce Up Your Home Before Your Next Party
Have a big event coming up and you want to plan a party at home? Not sure how to start getting your home “entertaining ready”? Sprucing up your home for a party is an essential to-do item, right along with inviting guests and planning the menu. But if you have a lot to clean and organize, the process of preparing your home for a party can be overwhelming. Here we look at 3 ways you can clean and spruce up for your next function that provide a big impact with minimal work.
Go Deeper Than The Surface
When we think about cleaning in preparation for a party, we immediately think of removing clutter and rearranging furniture and objects to create the most enticing environment in our homes. But sometimes we have to go deeper than the surface to truly clean our home and create an outstanding party environment.
One job that might need attention if you regularly entertain is stain removal. You might not notice stains on carpet, tiles, and area rugs during normal daily living but the sparkling cleanliness of party preparation can make even small stains really stand out. Professional carpet stain removal can help to get your carpet or area rugs clear and flawless in preparation for your next round of entertaining. You should also keep in mind that your local carpet cleaner can likely help you clean your outside entertainment areas, such as traditional or pool decks, with a power washing service. This type of work can bring immediate and noticeable results, all without you having to put in much direct time or effort.
Target Party Areas
If you have limited time to prepare but want to make a great impression, it’s helpful to focus on the main areas the party will be in. Draw up a to do list to focus on the areas that need special attention whether that’s the entranceway, living area, guest bathroom, or kitchen. Consider bringing in a professional carpet cleaning service for just the rooms that the party or event will be held in, rather than having the whole house cleaned. And don’t forget to give your attention to outdoor areas that might be used like the patio or outdoor kitchen.
Focusing on these areas will ensure they are brought up to high standard quickly, and referencing your to do list will help to keep you from getting distracted.
Don’t Neglect the Details
As the saying goes “the devil is in the details”, so creating the perfect setting for your home party involves taking the time to add finishing touches that really create the perfect atmosphere. Moving your furniture around to create movement, flow, and ‘conversation spaces’ can help to cultivate the right atmosphere to make your guests comfortable. Adequate lighting that’s not too bright helps to invite people into your space and create points of focus in your décor and design. Creating the ideal entrance area for your guests provides them with a warm welcome and a chance to comfortably be relieved of bags and jackets before joining the party.
These details are only small, but they help to create the ideal overall ambience and atmosphere for entertaining in your home.
Getting ready to entertain or host a party at your home is exciting, but the process of cleaning and prepping your home can be less exciting. By using these tips to prepare more efficiently, including getting help with carpet care, you can create a comfortable and clean environment for your next party.
