Darik Neilson

Now that the holidays are in full winter bloom, it's a great reason to get your Las Vegas home in order for Yuletide guests. Of course, there’s the usual sprucing up that has to be completed before everyone is allowed in. But is your home, itself, ready to go? Or could it need some updated furniture, lighting fixtures and energy-efficient plantation shutters?

If you want to give your guests a warm and cozy home, try these ideas to improve your home for the holidays.

Install Energy-Efficient Interior Shutters

But if you install plantation shutters over your windows, you instantly give your room a finished look that also accentuates your decorations. Plantation shutters also can effectively block sun glare from sunrise to sunset. They are perfect in places like the living room, so no one has to open presents with a blinding sunset hitting them in their eyes.

By improving your Las Vegas home for the holidays with plantation shutters, you attain both elegance and energy-efficiency. That’s because when the weather becomes cold and windy, you can shut the treatments for an energy-efficient boost. Plantation shutters have been called the premier window coverings to block air flowing through your windows -- and that keeps the pleasant air inside and the chilly air out.

Of course, if you want to pair energy-efficiency with status, you should use a faux wood treatment, like our Polywood® plantation shutters. Polywood is up to 70% more energy-efficient than wood shutters and up to 1600% more energy-efficient than stock aluminum blinds. You can even cover your specialty-shaped windows with Polywood plantation shutters, ensuring every window will look stylish while still keeping a constant temperature in your home. 

It’s Time For Updated Furniture In The Living Room

Now that your windows are covered, you should consider what your friends will be sitting on. If your chairs, couches, and tables are starting to come apart, the holidays are a wonderful time to upgrade. By switching out an old sofa, or bringing-in a couple leather chairs by the fire, you can give your rooms a style that’s perfect for lounging around. Plus, your friends will feel more comfortable sitting on furniture that wasn’t purchased during the 1930’s. After all, those cushions won’t get any cleaner. 

Add Decorations To Every Room In The House

But there’s nothing better for your overnight guests than finding a tiny piece of the holidays in their own bedroom. And a bit of mistletoe in the kitchen can raise your spirits when you’re stressing about dinner and desserts.

Decorations don’t have to be overbearing, and try not to think that you need to fill the house withseveral tinseled pine trees. But a small touch here or there can do a lot for your holiday morale.

Improve Your Las Vegas House For The Holidays By Changing Out Inadequate Lighting Fixtures

Ensuring that your lighting fixture fits your space should be on your holiday wish list.

New furniture, decorations, and energy-efficient plantation shutters are nice, but it won’t matter if they are poorly lit. Improving your home for the holidays should include upgrading ineffective lamps and chandeliers. Your corner lamp can provide enough light when it’s just you and your immediate family, but when people come over, you’ll need plenty of adequate lighting.

Most lights are simple to put in and can transform an area. TheylLighting can eliminate room shadows in the corners. If a an updated light isn’t an option, just make sure your fixtures don’t have any burned-out bulbs. And adding a dimmer switch lets you adjust the fixtures against your holiday tree lights.
