You have the usual trees lights and present wrapping that has to be done before family comes. But is your house, itself, looking festive as it could? Or does it use some new chairs, lights and energy-efficient interior shutters?

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

Give Your Windows Energy-Efficient Plantation Shutters

By putting up plantation shutters over your windows, you instantly give your room a classic touch that also brings out your holiday embellishments. Shutters also can effectively mitigate sun glare from sunrise to sunset. They work great in rooms like the kitchen, so nobody has to bake pumpkin pie with a harsh sunset hitting them in their eyes.

By improving your Miami home for the holidays with plantation shutters, you attain both style and energy-efficiency. That’s because when the cold wind starts blowing, you can shut the louvers and get an energy-efficient boost. Plantation shutters are known as the top window treatments to stop heat loss through your windows -- so you keep the nice temperatures inside and the wintry air out.

Of course, if you chose to combine energy-efficiency with style, you should use a faux wood treatment, like our Polywood® shutters. Polywood is up to 70% more energy-efficient than basswood shutters and up to 1600% more energy-efficient than cheap aluminum blinds. You can even cover your unusually shaped windows with Polywood plantation shutters, which ensures that every window will look beautiful while still keeping the room warm. 
 

It’s Time For Updated Furniture In The Family Room

If your furniture pieces are beginning to show their age, the holidays are a wonderful time to start anew. By replacing a worn-out sofa, or putting a few leather chairs by the fire, you can make an atmosphere that’s perfect for a Christmas card. Plus, your family will be cozier sitting on a chair that hasn’t been around since the Great Depression. After all, how many times can you turn that cushion anyway?.
