As the first day of autumn passes us, we have to face reality: the holidays will be here before we know it. Which means, of course, it’s time to start planning. And decorating.

One of the things we love most about the holidays is the chance to see our homes dressed up as they aren’t ordinarily. Whether the decorations are for you or your guests, there is something about this time of year that can coax the most hardened heart to get into the spirit. Be it awesome fall parties, preparing for Thanksgiving, or the nonstop extravaganza that hits us in December, odds are your home will be more open now to family than it is at any other time in the year. Which makes this the best time of year—right before the madness really begins—to consider redoing your floors.

Let’s face it, one of the things we love most about entertaining friends and family is the chance to really show off our homes. And why shouldn’t we? For most people, a house is the largest investment they will ever make. Updating the home adds to the value, keeps your look modern and fresh, and gives your holiday guests something to talk about over turkey dinner.

Right now, Mohawk is hosting their Anniversary Sale, where you can save on select carpets, hardwoods, and tile with instant discounts. Come visit one of our store locations for details or to discuss other ideas on how you can prepare your home for the holiday madness. With September behind us, the time to make your plans is now.
