As you start to bring out the holiday decorations, you may also want to think about some additional ways to make your home clean, shine, sparkle, festive, and inviting for the holiday season. Here is a list of home decorating tips for the holidays that will make your festive, sparkling clean, and inviting!

Home Decorating Tips for the Holidays

Small Changes Can Make a Difference

Fall Throw Pillow

Adding a small touch such as throw pillows to any piece of furniture is an easy and budget-friendly way to make any living room transition into fall.

Lighten Up with Candles

Winter Berry Candle

With a flicker of a flame, candles can evoke tranquility, lend a beautiful ambiance, and tantalize the senses. Koch’s range of scented candles will help your hope evoke an atmosphere that’s delightfully warm, inviting, and relaxing.

Mini Home Makeover


Just in time for the holiday season and days before guests will be arriving, your budding Picasso’s latest masterpiece (e.g. marker or paint stains) is on the…sofa. You’ve scrubbed and scrubbed your sofa until you were red in the face, but you can’t justify purchasing a whole new sofa. One of the quickest and budget-friendly ways to conceal this is with a slipcover. There are a vast selection of colors and styles that will revamp your furniture for the season.

Carpet Clean-Up

The carpets can pay the price within no time at all. From muddy footprints to sticky snacks, the carpets are in dire need of a good cleaning! With just one simple phone call, you can have your carpets shampooed and practically looking brand new before the holiday guests arrive days later.
