Projects to Spruce Up Your Home for the Holidays

Don’t panic, but the holidays are right around the corner. In addition to Christmas carols and feasts of food, this time of year always brings with it relatives and guests that you want to impress. Make them all jealous this holiday season by sprucing up your home with a few simple projects.

Four of the best ways to upgrade your home for the holidays include:

Ship Lap Accent Wall
A trend that started on HGTV and isn’t going away soon is ship lap. Incorporate it into your home by constructing an accent wall with the material. Simple to install, this material adds texture and personality to your space instantly. Choose a neutral paint for more modern homes, or a dark wood stain for rustic.

Updated Mantel
Your guests will likely be hanging out around the fireplace to stay warm and chat this season, so give it an update before they arrive. By replacing your standard mantel with a cedar beam like those now available at McCray Lumber and Millwork, you add a cozy touch of sophistication to your living room that looks great and adds value to your home.

New Dining Room Mouldings
Make a statement in your dining room this holiday by installing new mouldings. Whether you opt for intricate crown moulding or choose a sleek chair rail, these features will give gorgeous dimension to your room, transforming it into a work of art.

Improved Feature Pantry Door
It is no secret that the holidays revolve around food. Make prepping, serving, and eating even more enjoyable by installing an improved pantry door. Feature doors, like those by Masonite® can be personalized to fit your unique tastes. Plus, a feature door can be installed quickly, giving incredible improvements to your space for minimal effort.

Before the holidays arrive, set your home up for success – and to be the envy of everyone who visits. Whether you choose one or multiple, these projects will all bring new life to your home this season. To get started, visit McCray Lumber and Millwork today.
