For some, the holiday season begins October 1st as football season is in full swing, homecoming takes place, and El Paso (somewhat) begins to feel like fall. There’s no better season for hosting friends and family! You may be thinking that would be great and all but my home isn’t prepared to host guests. Not to worry! At Market Warehouse Furniture, we make it feasible to find everything your home may be missing — from sofas, dining tables, bar stools, entertainment centers, and much more — all at an amazing rate. Finding the perfect furniture in El Paso has never been easier!
Whether you’ve recently moved or have simply neglected to furnish your home for budgetary, time, or other reasons, October is the perfect month to give your home the interior love it deserves. We have some expert tips to help you prepare:
1. Make Sure Everyone Fits at the Dining Room Table
The dining room table is the perfect place to catch up with people you haven’t seen in months or years so you want to be sure that everyone invited has a place the table. If you’re creating a casual dining experience, then you can arrange for some guests to sit at the kitchen island by providing comfortable bar stools. If you’re taking the more formal dining experience, then consider arranging the table in a manner where everyone can sit and eat comfortably. Most formal dining tables fit eight guests. You may also want to consider putting two dining tables together or investing in one smaller one where the children can sit.
2. Create a Comfortable and Welcoming Living Room Through Sofas and Loveseats
After the meal, invite your guests to the living room where they can relax, unwind, and maybe play a board game, listen to music, or enjoy a glass of wine. At Market Warehouse Furniture, comfort is embedded in all the furniture we provide. We carry an assortment of sofas that are not only comfortable but can seat as many as eight people. The addition of a loveseat is a perfect complement to a large sofa. It helps bring the room together and provides a space for a couple to gather.
3. If Children Will Be Present, Place Breakables in Secure Areas
There’s nothing worse than finding your favorite lamp or vase on the floor shattered to pieces. When children come into a new home, they may not be aware of what’s available for them to play with and what they shouldn’t touch. For safety reasons, it’s a good idea to place any items that can break or shouldn’t be in the hands of children in secure, hidden areas.
4. Declutter So Everyone Can Move Around Easily
If you’re expecting a full house, then it’s a good idea to make sure there’s enough room for everyone to move around without having to squeeze through. Leave spaces between furniture so people can move from one area to the next without obstructing anyone’s view of the television or colliding with one another.
5. If Guests Plan on Staying Over, Provide Them a Comfortable Place to Rest Their Heads
There’s nothing like having family and friends over for the holidays, especially when they stay over for a few days. Investing in an additional bed for a guest bedroom is a great idea not just for the holidays but all year round. Your guests can feel right at home when they rest their heads at the end an eventful day.
