’tis the season for gathering, by Ciot

Fireplace in the living room

Looking to jazz up your home without jumping into a full reno during the busiest time of the year? Here are 10 recommendations of what you can do to get your place ready for holiday entertaining.


Create a cosy living space for the family

Consider updating your fireplace. This easily achievable project can be done by replacing the existing tile or wood. With so many options and designs available, the whole family can get behind this cosy new space.

Gather round the kitchen

We know that the kitchen is the hub of family gatherings. Why not freshen it up by swapping out the backsplash with a new contemporary mosaic or tile?

Add an extra cooking station

Consider installing an additional cooking or warming station into an island or a dining room table and be ready to cook for a crowd. Our InvisaCook systems are available in a variety of burner configurations. Having to worry about keeping food warm will be a thing of the past.

Let’s get bright and merry

Are you considering replacing your kitchen countertop or island? Give your space a “wow” factor by using Ciot’s new back-lit LED system by Omnify, which is sure to brighten up any space for years to come. Get festive with it and light up your countertops with a pop of red for your annual holiday party.

Prepare your guest room

Consider using our engineered wood flooring collections to help bring warmth to less frequently used spaces. Our Arboro collection is the ideal material to use for adding some character into your home and can be a quick way to spruce up your floors.

Impress your overnight guests by creating a spa-like environment. Consider a beautiful rainfall shower in your guest bathroom.

Basement blues no more.

Using one of Ciot’s many wood-look tile collections is guaranteed to liven up any cold basement. Did you know that porcelain tile floors are more resistant to water damage than traditional wood flooring? Why stop there? Create a cosy space to entertain by adding an in-floor heating system under your new basement tile.

Tired of your existing floors?

Change things up by laying 6mm ceramic tiles or slabs over your existing flooring. Gain time and money by not having to break up your existing flooring and dealing with the dust that comes along with it. Additionally, you won’t have to shave your doors to accommodate the 6mm difference.

Outdoor holiday gathering

Maximize your covered outdoor space by creating an impromptu patio area with one of Ciot’s 2cm porcelain pavers. Additionally, you can wrap your outdoor dining table in a 12mm or 20mm porcelain slab for a durable, weather-resistant option.

Don’t forget the stocking stuffers and gift giving

Gift an InvisaCharge unit for that techie in your family. Consider a Ciot Eramosa vase that you can fill with beautiful flowers to accessorize your festive dining room table, or perhaps a custom artistic mosaic from Ciot Studio specifically designed for that special someone in your life.
