With the rapid approach of the holidays over the course of the coming weeks, there’s simply no time to squeeze in a quick kitchen overhaul, rapid room addition, or brisk bedroom renovation. However, the holidays can be a very revealing time. Take this opportunity to examine your home’s performance with a house full of guests in order to determine the areas that could benefit most from a remodel before NEXT year’s holidays hit. When preparing your home’s “seasonal study,” ask yourself the following questions:
1) How does the overall flow of the home’s layout feel with visitors present? Cramped, cozy or roomy?
2) Does the kitchen function comfortably as a social gathering space AND a food prep area?
3) Is your guest bedroom and bathroom houseguest-worthy? Is it a space in which YOU would feel comfortable?
4) Does your home require more space for entertaining? If so, what kind of entertainment space is the best fit for your family’s collective personality, e.g. media room, bar, sunroom, outdoor living space?
Another great tactic is to ask your family members and guests for suggestions of ways you might improve future visits. Ask for brutal honesty, but be prepared to potentially suffer some slightly bruised feelings. Keep a log book of your impressions and theirs, then list potential home improvements by priority.
