3 Simple Steps to Spruce Up Your Home for the Holidays


It’s the most wonderful time of the year! We don’t know about you, but one of our favorite things about the holiday season is transforming our homes for the fall harvest or transforming them into a winter wonderland.

Where to get started? It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3.

1. Clean, Declutter, Simplify.

Spring cleaning gets all the credit, but a holiday purge can be a great way to not only feel refreshed but to help others in need. Before you start decorating your holiday home, consider cleaning out and disposing of or donating the old or outdated decor you don’t need or like anymore. After all, you only have one or two Christmas trees in your home once a year. Do you really need five tree skirts?

2. Get Inspiration Online

What did we ever do before the days of Etsy, Pinterest, and other social media channels? Utilize your favorite brands’ social accounts for inspiration–or Pinspiration, as we like to say.

(Psst, we just so happen to post our own inspo now and then. Follow us on Pinterest, Facebook, YouTube and Instagram for some holiday ideas using our sustainable and stylish reclaimed wood.)

3. Shop and DIY

Whether you prefer home projects or scouring the shelves and online stores, the third step to getting the perfect holiday home is to invest in timeless pieces that will bring festive cheer to you and your loved ones. If you’re ready to get started, we have some fun decor and DIY materials to choose.

When it comes to the holiday season, there truly is nothing that beats a home full of cheery decor and the love of family and friends. Follow these three steps and shop here to get your house or business holiday ready, and share your finished result with us on social to enter our photo contest!

All of us at Centennial Woods wish you and yours a very happy holiday season!
