the holidays—the kitchen. You’ll have plenty of room
for lots of kitchen helpers and good conversations.

warm in those rooms you rarely use. Reduce the chilly drafts by adding insulation,

months can sometimes get to be a little dreary. Through the brisk season in Falls Church, it is hard to find vibrant colors besides your friend’s ugly Christmas sweater or Grandma’s
cookie frosting. Get creative with indoor plants and flowers —this
will add some life and is a great outlet for a craft day.
- Whether you need a kids’ table or just need extra chairs,
make sure to provide enough easy seating and places to
your guests. Don’t forget about comfy places
to settle after a big Thanksgiving dinner, either.

your favorite recipes. When your food completes the beauty of your kitchen, your guests will want to come back to the best
kitchen in Falls Church every year. If you don’t like cooking, have a little fun looking for
festive plates to put tasty treats on.

Fires are common during
the holiday season. No matter how great of a cook you are, sometimes things
go wrong in the kitchen—it is better to be prepared and keep your guests safe.
- While they may not get much use throughout the year, dining rooms finally get the action they deserve around the
holidays. Whether you’re gearing toward elegant or festive,
there are infinite up-to-date design options you can take advantage of. Add anything
from a grouping of candles to a bowl of pinecones to bring attention to the
center of the table as a wintry statement piece.
- With bay windows there
are endless possibilities to expand your
space and utilize a nook. Get creative and add tables, chairs or even a bench
with extra storage. Make this a special space for your family to enjoy the holidays,
and spend time together throughout the year.

you can and still make time with your loved ones. With the help of these tips, your home will be
