It’s just not possible. The new backpack smell is still lingering in the hallway. The new athletic shoes are still clean and the lawns are still green. But as the stores begin to fill up with holiday décor and television commercials are pushing layaways, it is, indeed, time to get ahead before the most wonderful time of the year is upon us. That’s especially true if you’re planning to host some of this year’s family festivities. If that’s the case, take a few minutes to walk around your home, focusing on rooms where people gather.  Ask yourself these questions. Are things looking tired? Is there enough space for everyone to gather to watch those big games as a group?

One piece that instantly warms up a room is a beautiful TVLiftCabinet with a fireplace. Imagine adding the beauty of a hand-crafted cabinet that becomes an instant focal point for your room. When you don’t want to see the television, it’s beautifully hidden and your guests will enjoy the gorgeous warm glow of a beautiful electric fireplace. And when it’s time for the big game or holiday movie, simply push a button, and your large, flat screen television will be visible to everyone in the room. Perfection. So – don’t put it off another day. Take that walk today and maybe by the time the holidays roll around in a few short months, you’ll be 100% ready to open your doors and welcome your friends and family in style.
