Renovating Your Home for the Holiday Season

Early signs of fall are here as the leaves begin to change into beautiful reds, greens and yellows. You know what this means: the holiday season is right around the corner! Family gatherings and holiday parties will soon be filling up your calendar, now is the perfect time to begin preparing your home for the holidays. Start designing a luxury renovation project to meet all of your entertaining needs!

Welcome Overnight Guests With Comfort

November through December are prime months for visits from out of town family and old friends. It’s important to create a welcoming space for your overnight guests beyond just the festive decor. Comfort is the most important factor to keep in mind when renovating your home. Instead dusting off the old blowup mattress in the basement or moving a child out of their bedroom for an entire week, create an inviting space that is enjoyable for everyone.

Whether you’re converting an unused bedroom into a luxury guest suite, building a home addition, or remodeling a room to meet your family’s needs, it’s important that your guests have space apart from your family to unwind and retreat in privacy. Another benefit to creating a space for guests is that everyone is able to stay in their own bed and get a good night’s sleep! Don’t forget a fireplace to keep everyone warm…

Give Your Kitchen A Face-Lift

Imagine creating new holiday memories in a pristine, updated kitchen like this one! One way to renovate your home for the holidays is by giving your kitchen a face-lift. Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah and New Year’s Eve will be arriving soon – you may need to make more functional updates in your kitchen. For example, installing a double oven to handle large family meals or upgrading to a new refrigerator to create space for leftover food. New counter tops and adding an island would be perfect for cooking holiday meals together and decorating cookies with the family! Spruce up your kitchen with modern custom cabinets paired with elegant hardware. Remember, a customized island makes cooking and meal prep easier, especially between all of the fun festivities.

Another popular kitchen renovation is adding a larger sink to handle hiding piles of dirty plates, making clean up easier after parties and affording you the bliss of getting you back to your guests quickly. At Tom Len Custom Homes, we believe a high-quality, luxury kitchen should be designed using only top of the line appliances, built with quality materials, planned with functionality, and most importantly, this luxury kitchen design should match your lifestyle.

Add Entertainment Space

Increase your home’s entertainment level for holiday celebrations by upgrading your existing space or even building an addition. Is your basement a place where old items gather dust? Finish your basement to utilize that square footage and create more opportunity for fun! Playrooms, sports hideouts, or media rooms are just a few ideas. A luxury basement design might also serve as a place for teens and kids to escape to away from the adults, or serve as a spacious guest suite that will rival local hotels and save your visitors money.

The possibilities at Tom Len Custom Homes are endless! We’re excited to collaborate with you on your project. We offer a wide range of residential additions from single rooms to complete second stories that will also add value to your home. Ready to renovate, but need some design inspiration?
