3 Tips for Entertaining for the Holidays

Holiday cheer is all around. From local carolers going door to door singing loud and merrily, to candles and lights decorating houses in your neighborhood. While there are many ways to bring the holiday spirit to your home, it’s never too late to include our 3 tips for entertaining for the holidays into your decor.

One of the most important décor objectives is to create a warm welcome for your family and friends when they enter your home. You can hang wreaths on your front door and windows, or wrap garland that has been intertwined with white, twinkling lights, around your front door. To truly capture the holiday spirit, place friendly holiday décor near your main entrance to make your guests feel like they are home with their first step inside.

The holidays mean something different to each family, so it’s important to make your home feel like the holidays, however you choose to celebrate. Your family might love the classic holiday atmosphere, while others are drawn to a more modern approach. To bring the holidays to your home, depending on your taste in décor, hang vintage or glittery ornaments on your tree or on shelves. Plaid, throw blankets and red pillows are perfect additions to your chairs and couches, as this not only brings the classic holiday feel to your space, but it also allows your guests to stay warm during the cold evenings.

Lastly, for those families hosting a holiday party, creating the perfect table setting can be one of the most important tasks you have. Sparkly gold and a rich green create an elegant feel, while red, brown and green brings the classic holiday cheer to your dining room. Decorate your table with a centerpiece that can act as the focal point, such as a vase of flowers or berries, and surround it with votive or pillar candles, in colors complementing your color scheme.

From personalized table settings, twinkling lights around your door, or red and green décor, there are many ways to still bring the holiday spirit to your home, and from our Eheart Interior Solutions family to you and yours, we hope you have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

 

 

 

Keeping Your Home Clean During the Winter Season

With snow and ice storms upon us, dirt, snow and salt are all being tracked into our homes. While snowstorms can be peaceful and beautiful, it has the opposite effect on your home and floors when it’s tracked inside by your family and friends.

Along with winter debris, dry, winter air affects both your health and your floors.  When humidity levels are low, contraction and gapping can occur in your floors, making it important to keep temperatures warm and dry in your home to prevent this.

To keep your floors clean and free of any scratches or rot, place doormats and rugs at every entrance in your home. This keeps most of the dirt and salt from entering your house, and leaves you with less of a mess to clean up. If kids or neighbors track winter debris past your entrance, sweeping and vacuuming regularly are a great way to keep up with the winter conditions.

Winter also affects the outside of your home, which can leave you victim to frozen pipes and no power. Make sure to always store an emergency kit in your home, consisting of flashlights, batteries, candles, non-perishable food, and plenty of warm clothing and blankets.

While your kids and pets enjoy frolicking in the snow, we have your home covered with our Resista cleaning products. Ranging from cleaning pads, powders and sprays, we have every cleaning product that your home needs to withstand the harsh, winter conditions.

Best Kitchen Floor Material For Your Home

The kitchen is one of the most valued rooms in a family’s home, so it’s not surprising that it is also one of the rooms that a family is willing to spend the extra money to makeover. If you’re looking to give your kitchen a new look starting with your floors, there are several factors that are important to consider. You should consider whether or not you have an open floor plan, and how often the kitchen will be used in order to select the right kitchen floor material to use.

For those that spend a great amount of time entertaining and cooking in the kitchen, vinyl is the best choice of kitchen floor material. Both waterproof and stain proof, vinyl is also the easiest to maintain, requiring only a mop and a broom. Vinyl is budget and foot friendly, as it is the softest hard surface option, making it easier on both your feet and your wallet.

Spooktacular Halloween Décor

We are days away from one of the most beloved holidays of the year. It’s a day when children can dress up as their favorite cartoon character, action hero, or sports athlete, and let the joys of childhood take over. Adults can dress the part too, in hopes of giving a little scare to the trick-or-treaters or at their own adult Halloween party.

Halloween is the time of year to let your inner child out, no matter your age. You can decorate your home both inside and out to evoke the spirit of Halloween. Pumpkins can be carved and lit up on your front steps, or painted and decorated with glitter for your side table. Bottles can be painted in black or army green, and decorated with silver or black glitter to depict bottles of potion or poison, depending on your desired level of scare.

A friendly front entrance to your home can be created with simple pumpkins, corn stalk, and hay, while you can up the scare for a terrifying entrance by draping cobwebs on your front porch, railings, windows and door. Ravens can be placed in the cobwebs, on the corn stalk, and around the porch for an added fright.

With terrifying entrances, scary costumes, and endless amounts of candy, kids and adults are bound to drop a piece of candy on the carpet, step on candy that’s been sprawled out on the floor to take inventory of their night’s haul, or a glass of wine might be spilled at a party. Whatever the reason for Halloween spills, we have you covered with our Resista cleaning products. Ranging from cleaning pads and cleaning powder, to carpet cleaner and pet cleaner, we have various tools and cleaners to assist with your cleaning.
