It’s that time of year again; the holiday season is rapidly approaching along with a seemingly endless list of things to do, presents to buy, and parties to plan. If you entertain friends and family in your home, you want it to look its absolute best. I recently sat down with Paintzen, an online service that makes painting your home simple, to discuss how you can prepare your home for the holidays. You don’t need to go overboard. Instead, focus on the four key areas that will be most visible to guests: the entryway, bathroom, kitchen, and living room.

The entryway is your guests’ first impression of your home, so why not spruce it up and make it as inviting as possible? Use a neutral paint color like PPG’s Toasted Almond to enlarge the space. In addition:


Powder Room/Bathroom

Your bathroom should be clean and presentable, so your guests don’t feel like they’re invading your privacy. A gray color palette, using  PPG’s Radisson as a base, presents a clean and modern look that’s easy to accent with holiday décor. In addition:



The kitchen is one of the most communal places in the home, a place where people gravitate and mingle. To make your kitchen an inviting and warm space, consider using a paint color like PPG’s Silver Feather. In addition:


Living Room

The living room is the main gathering area – the space that will invite conversation and community. Everything from decor to organization will influence how your guests interact with the space and with each other. A darker paint color like this blue from PPG is guaranteed to bring people closer together. In addition:


With these simple tips plus a little bit of time and effort, your home will be holiday ready in no time.
