Getting the home ready for Christmas
Write your list and make sure you check it twice, start preparing for Christmas now so you aren’t rushing around at the last minute. Here are a few tips to help you get organised..
The most important thing to check is the BBQ!
Make sure it’s clean and ready to go, buy extra gas, (the last thing you want is to be running up to the local service station mid-BBQ) and check it’s in a prime location! New Living Homes install the BBQ point to the spacious alfresco courtyard making it easier to entertain while cooking!
Pick your entertaining area, the backyard or the living room?
This is to make sure you have enough room to fit everyone; no one likes to be left out! Open plan living areas are a prime location for entertaining, especially on Christmas, incorporating the living, dining and kitchen. That’s why New Living Homes includes open plan living areas on all home designs. Adding an alfresco with bifold doors makes the transition from indoor to outdoor living simple and adds that extra entertaining space!
‘Honey, I forgot the kids!’
Having a set area for the kids is a great idea for keeping the kids entertained and away from the expensive vase in the hall way.. The extra theatre room included in our home designs is a great location to put on a Christmas movie and run a few Christmas day activities, right next to the open plan living area so you can still keep an eye on them.
Make it the ultimate festive experience with decorations around the home and on the table setting and most importantly, don’t forget to get the Santa suit out!
