At Hoover Paint, we have everything you need to make your home look inviting this holiday season. Don’t worry about redoing your whole house before this holiday season. Just focusing on one or two of these critical areas will do enough to have your guests wowed. Visit us to get high-quality Benjamin Moore paints to do the job and make it last.

#1: Spruce up the Living Room

This is where you and your guests will spend the most time. Adding a fresh coat of Benjamin Moore paint can make your home look more inviting and your living room look entirely brand new, even if all that’s different is just a few coats of paint.

Pull out some blankets to hang over the backs of chairs and couches for warmth if it gets chilly. Adding greenery is an incredible way to add seasonal and eye-catching color, with sprigs of holly, mistletoe, or a few evergreen wreaths. Pinecones and other centerpieces with lights can also add to the holiday spirit.

#2: Refresh the Cabinetry

Painting the cabinets is a great way to prepare your home for the holidays. Choose a color that goes well with your paint color and the rest of your decor, and then have fun! It’s a cost-effective project that can be completed in just a weekend. While the paint dries between applications, you can relax, work on other projects, or run out and buy gifts.

You could add wallpaper to the back of your cabinetry for a friendly pop of color or an interesting pattern that will cheer guests when they go to grab dishes.

#3 Transform the Guest Bedrooms

Make your guest bedrooms extra inviting by adding an accent wall. Choose a color you love, like the Benjamin Moore 2024 paint color of the year, Blue Nova, or the 2023 color of the year, Raspberry Blush, and paint it on a single wall for significant impact. You could also use wallpaper on an accent wall. Wallpaper is versatile and comes in multiple colors, patterns, and textures that could make your guest room very inviting.

Exchange summer blankets for thicker winter quilts and add extras. Around the room, add some holiday décor. Again, focus on greenery, like branches of evergreens with berries (real or fake) in a large decorative vase.

#4: Dial Up the Dining Room

Since this is where you’ll be sharing a meal, ensure the dining room looks stunning. Clean the light fixtures and change the bulbs. The dining room is also a wonderful place to add an accent wall, touch up, or change the paint. Have the paint complement your tablecloth, settings, and any décor you select.

You could also set out some candles. Not only can they look fantastic with greenery, but an abundance of candles is a festive way to enjoy a dinner around the holidaysZ and bring an intimate sense of warmth to the dinner table.
