Fast Interior Fixes in Time for Your Big Party

Planning a big party? You'll probably have a parade of visitors and relatives in your home. On the big day, your home will be the backdrop for family photos. Therefore, you'll want to make sure it looks its best for the soiree.

Here are some ways you can improve the look of your home in a relatively short amount of time:

If carpets and upholstery look dull and dirty, consider having them cleaned. Just make sure to clean a small, inconspicuous spot first to test for color bleeding or staining by the cleaning solvent.

A simple coat of paint can instantly change a space. Think about the rooms you'll be using for photo opportunities, like bedrooms and living rooms, and spruce them up with a new color.

Consider purchasing new bed linens and decorative pillows. They'll dress up your bedroom and offer an ideal enhancement for photos.

Remember the small accessories that can make a house seem cluttered. Remove extraneous knickknacks and store them away until after the affair.

Make sure furniture is dusted and mirrors are free of fingerprints.
