Our homes work hard for us all year round, protecting us from all adverse weather changes. The festive season which happens once a year is when we expect more from it. Maybe we will host dinner with relatives, and sudden visits by family, host Christmas dinner, more comfortable nights in front of the TV and lots of guests staying, during this time of year, our homes are expected to evolve according to our ever-changing needs.
How do you ensure that your home will be up to the task? With some furniture and some clever planning, you’ll find that having the right pieces to meet the demands of the Christmas season can make your home look different and attractive. If your dining table normally only needs to accommodate four family members but you’re expecting eight for Christmas dinner, an extended dining table will be your answer. With an extra table that hides when not in use, you can comfortably accommodate more members only when you need them.
For extra seating, having a bench will work very well because of its ability to accommodate several additional members especially children. When not needed at the dining table, stools come in handy almost anywhere in the house, from your hallway to your bedroom and beyond, and are easy to move whenever extra seating is needed. If you’re short on countertops in the kitchen, consider using the vanity as a place to organize buffet-style meals or as additional prep space in an emergency.
For the living room, you may need a larger L-shaped sofa that will maximize the space you have and allow the whole family to enjoy the Christmas movie that the whole family loves. A sofa bed is also a great idea if you have overnight guests, with a mattress that’s easy to hide when not in use. The coffee table is always handy too. They can be used as additions to accommodate snacks or a place to put drinks and can even be used as extra seating in an emergency. Due to their design, they can be easily stored without taking up much space after the party is over.
