Tips for getting your San Diego home ready for holiday visitors

christmasWith the holidays fast approaching, so are your  holiday visitors. Is your San Diego home company-ready? If not, there’s still time to do something about it. You can dramatically upgrade your décor in just a weekend, or even a day, by doing some San Diego interior painting.

Deciding on whether to redecorate before or after the Holidays is a very personal decision. Many San Diego clients want to have everything together and fresh looking before the Holidays. Some plan to have everything done before Thanksgiving, so they can put up their Christmas decorations right away. Others do not mind having us work until before Christmas or New Year’s Day. Yet, others cannot bear the thought of dealing with one more thing before the Holidays.
Nothing changes the appearance of a home interior faster, or more effectively, than a fresh coat of San Diego interior paint. And, giving a room an entirely new appearance at holiday-time will help lift your spirits and that of your guests.

Assuming that your pre-holiday painting is focused on rooms that will be filled with people, keep in mind that paints with higher levels of sheen will be more stain-resistant and easier to clean. Certainly the woodwork, but even the walls, in gathering spots like the kitchen and kids’ playroom, and should be done with semi-gloss paint. To make cleaning even easier, be sure to use 100% acrylic latex interior paint.


Quick Fixes

Paint the Kitchen



As you know when you have friends and family over for some Christmas cheer invariably everyone likes to congregate in the kitchen area.  There couldn’t be a better time to get those dingy, dirty kitchen walls painted.

Painting the kitchen is not as easy as it looks.  Painting around cabinets, light fixtures and appliances is not an easy task and is very time consuming.  If it’s been awhile since you’ve painted last or if you are making a big color change it could take two coats of paint which is very time consuming as well.

Power Wash the Exterior

San Diego power washing is offered by professional power washers and has a miraculous effect on deep-seated dirt, mold, fungus, moss, soot, gum, rust stains, discoloration, graffiti and grime. Power washing can greatly clean and improve the look and feel of roofs, siding, sidewalks, railings and gutters. Most San Diego houses that get regular power washing helps avoid expensive renovations, repairs or replacements.


Paint your Front Door



Refresh Your Entry. Your home’s entrance makes an important first impression. Refresh your entry with a new coat of paint on the front door. And if the trim is starting to look weathered, scrape and repaint those areas as well. Add a festive wreath. Front door wreaths are fabulous for capturing your eyes, drawing attention to your front door, and welcoming your friends and neighbors to your porch!

Paint an Accent Wall

As the colors start changing outside, so should the colors in your home. Fall is the perfect time of year for home painting projects. Accent walls can make an interior room pop, and it even helps make a room feel larger than it really is. Whether you are looking for change in your home or you want to create contrast, adding an accent wall brings dimension to the room.

Spruce up your Guest Room



Your guest room should be warm and inviting and make your visitors feel as if they are at home. Your overnight guests don’t expect hotel-like accommodations and amenities from your spare room, but you want to be as good a host as you can be. And there’s more to creating a cozy space than offering a comfy bed and a towel to use in the bathroom.
A fresh, clean coat of paint will make your guests comfortable and welcome.

Hire a Painter for a Day

What’s especially nice about painting just prior to the holidays is that you can even choose colors that are just right for the season, as long as you’ll still love them when the day is done.

Before you know it, Christmas will be at your door. It’ll be time to decorate your home and hang stockings over the fireplace. Christmas is a day to sit back, relax and have quality time with family and friends. But the preparation can be stressful if you haven’t figured it out yet.
