Mike Horn

Now that the holidays are swiftly approaching, it's time to get your New Brunswick home in order for Yuletide guests. You have the usual trees lights and present wrapping that should to be finished before family arrives. But is your home, itself, ready to go? Or does it use some updated furniture, lighting fixtures and energy-efficient plantation shutters?

If you want to give your guests a comforting home, try some of these ideas to improve your home for the holidays.

Give Your Windows Energy-Efficient Plantation Shutters

But if you install plantation shutters over your windows, you instantly give your home a inviting feeling that also brings out your holiday decorations. Interior shutters also can effectively block sun glare from sunrise to sunset. They work great in rooms like the kitchen, so nobody has to bake pumpkin pie with a annoying sunset hitting them in their eyes.

By improving your New Brunswick home for the holidays by getting shutters, you gain both style and energy-efficiency. That’s because when the cold wind starts blowing, you can close the treatments for an energy-efficient boost. Plantation shutters have been called the best window coverings to deter air flowing through your windows -- keeping the nice temperatures inside and the chilly air out.

Of course, if you chose to pair energy-efficiency with durability, you will want to use a faux wood interior shutter, like our Polywood® plantation shutters. Polywood is up to 70% more energy-efficient than hardwood shutters and up to 1600% more energy-efficient than cheap aluminum blinds. You are able to even cover your specialty-shaped windows with Polywood shutters, which means that all your windows will look stylish while still ensuring a constant temperature in your rooms. 

It’s Time For New Furniture In Your Home

After your windows are dressed, it’s time to consider what your friends will be sitting on. If your chairs are starting to come apart, the holidays can be a great time to find replacements. By upgrading a worn-out couch, or bringing-in a few leather chairs for guests, you can give your rooms a look that’s perfect for lounging around. Plus, your friends will feel more comfortable sitting on a chair that wasn’t made during the Great Depression. After all, that book can’t level your couch forever. 

Add Decorations To Every Room In The House

And a tiny wreath in the kitchen can raise your spirits when you’re stressing about dinner and desserts.

Decorations are better when they aren’t overblown, and try not to think that you need a house filled withseveral tinseled pine trees. But a slight bit here or there can keep up your holiday mood.
