How to Decorate Your House for the Holidays

One of the most exciting parts of the festive period is the decorations. There’s something so exciting about walking down the street and seeing every house lit up with amazing Christmas decorations. As the days get shorter and darker, the stunning festive lights illuminate every street as the anticipation for Christmas Day increases.

Many people spend hours every year decorating their home and turning it into a stunning grotto, ready for the holidays. You might be wondering how you can do the same this year so you can make your home look and feel extra festive. Even if you're short on time and you're decorating on a budget, there are still lots of great things you can do in your home to make it feel more Christmassy. Here are some simple tips that will help you out.

Put Up a Christmas Tree

If you do anything to decorate this Christmas, you need to put up a tree! Most people’s Christmas trees take pride of place in the living room but you can put a tree up anywhere in your home.

If you’d rather not deal with the shedding leaves of a real Christmas tree, you can buy a synthetic one that looks just as good. They’re available in multiple different colors, from classic green to dazzling white, and even bright pink if you want to make a statement! Synthetic trees also last much longer so once you’ve bought one, you’re covered for at least five years.

Decorate your tree with lots of different colored baubles, sparkly tinsel, and cute fairy lights.  And don't forget to top with an old-fashioned tree topper!

Place Lighting Around the House

Lighting makes a huge difference to the festive feel of your home. They’re not just for the Christmas tree, either! You can place lights almost anywhere on your property to give it a cozy Christmas vibe.

Place some fairy lights across the mantelpiece in the living room or stick them to the walls of your kitchen so that every room has a calming ambient atmosphere.

Hang some up on the exterior of your property to make a visual impact during the dark evenings. Not only do outdoor lights look impressive to passers-by but they also keep your home well-lit and safer over the festive period.

Use Ornaments in Every Room

No room can escape the Christmas ornaments! The kitchen, the living room, the bathroom, and the bedrooms can all look extra festive when there are a few themed statues and ornaments dotted around.

Even using your extra Christmas tree decorations can work. Place a bunch of baubles in a bowl to keep on the table or string together some pine cones to hang on the headboard of your bed. Have fun and be creative with it!

Of course, this isn’t exclusive to the interior of your home. You can also place some Santa statues in the front garden or a large toy reindeer to extend the festive vibes to your exterior.
