It’s that time of year again – the holidays are fast-approaching! Luckily, you still have plenty of time to get your home ready for holiday gatherings and parties. Entertaining during the holiday season can be incredibly stressful, but it doesn’t need to be with Sam Levitz! We can help you make sure that your home will be guest-ready.
The holidays mean big meals, great company, and warm surroundings. All of this is incredibly easy to achieve when you have the right furnishings. Sure, décor matters – but creating a functional space for your guests is an essential foundation. Holiday entertaining is so much easier with the right furnishings in your home. While accessories and décor are important, it’s also the big things that matter, like a functional dining set, an inviting bedroom, and a cozy gathering space.
Below we’ve got some tips on how to prepare your home for the holidays and create a relaxing atmosphere your guests will love!
Only the Best for Your Overnight Guests
Got friends and family staying the night or a few days? It’s ideal to have a spare bedroom that includes all the cozy essentials for a good night’s sleep. For instance, a comfy mattress makes all the difference for tired guests and should keep them comfortable and supported all night long. Once you have a supportive mattress, choose an attractive bed; a lovely choice is the stylish Signature Design by Ashley Nashburg Queen Arched Metal Bed in Bronze Color Finish. Its vintage casual design looks great in any decor.
Rustic style and charm makes the AAmerica Sun Valley Queen Bed with Footboard Bench and Drawers one of our top choices – plus it offers convenient extra storage for your guests! The storage compartments at the top leave extra room for pillows and the base of the bed features two pull-out drawers. Rustic themed hardware and barn style doors complete the look with an early-country charm.
A bench at the end of the bed is a wonderful addition that your guests will love. They serve two purposes—guests can sit, store clothes, or lay their suitcase down on a bench. Our bench collection offers beauty and craftsmanship, and is sure to impress.
Get Your Deck Holiday-Cozy
Here in Southern Arizona, it’s sunny more than 300 days of the year. While it might not be 80 degrees where you are during the holidays, some areas do have pleasant weather at that time. What better way to take advantage of beautiful holiday weather than with a new patio set?
The weather-resistant Signature Design by Ashley Beachcroft 4 Piece Resin Wicker Sectional Set has everything you need to transform your outdoor space entirely. You can arrange the sectional components to best fit the dimensions of your available space, and you’ll never have to worry about accommodating enough people. The armless chair can also be configured as a standalone chair. Having a holiday feast out on your patio? Consider the Lifestyle COD 7 Piece Rectangular Patio Set with 6 Arm Chairs – it’s handsome, functional, and offers plenty of dining space.
As your holiday celebrations go late into the evening, gather around a fire pit to share stories, stay warm, and make s’mores. The Signature Design by Ashley Beachcroft Rectangular Bar Table with Fire Pit will bring a whole new level of warmth and sophistication to your outdoor space. Constructed with a rust-proof aluminum frame, this piece is built to last, and looks good – the design of the thick porcelain top adds a nice touch of character.
A Gathering Space for Guests
One of the biggest dilemmas hosts face is not enough seating for their family and friends. This holiday season, all you have to do is add a roomy sectional, or a cool accent chair or two. Instead of hanging out in your kitchen where the culinary magic is happening, guests can relax in the living room. We love this Savesto Casual Contemporary 5-Piece Sectional by Signature Design by Ashley – it’s made for comfort and will transform your living room space. With its feather-filled cushions and soft design, this staple piece is sure to offer an abundance of comfort.
To add extra seating in your living room, consider the Ashley Furniture Farouh Accent Chair with Quatrefoil Lattice Fabric. The pretty quatrefoil lattice pattern in brown over linen-weave neutral toned fabric adds personality to this accent chair. Rounded track arms and a tight back keep the lines of the chair simple, so it will fit in any style decor with ease. Also, make sure your guests have a few accent and occassional tables to rest drinks and hors d’oeuvres.
