Christmas is fast approaching, which means it’s time for the decorations to come out! If you are looking forward to welcoming winter into your home – minus the cold – but need some guidance in how to make your house look magical, we can help you to create a winter haven. Here are some top tips on how to design your very own winter wonderland at home.
Make a good first impression
While the majority of the decorations will feature inside your home – there is nothing to stop you from making your outdoor area pretty too. With items such as light up reindeers and neon style polar bear lights available at the likes of Cox & Cox, you can make your front garden just as gorgeous as your front room.
Light up your rooms
From decorative pre-lit trees to sparkling string lights, there are some beautiful light up pieces that you can begin to collect during the festive season. Wrap twinkly lights around your bannister or pop a light up birch tree in the hallway for an instant winter wonderland feel.
Start collecting unique pieces
No matter whether you prefer cute penguins, cheeky snowmen or red-nosed reindeers, Christmas decorations come in all shapes and sizes – the more unique, the better. Place them on windowsills, shelves or even on the Christmas tree to give your home that magical feel.
Get creative and make your own paper snowflakes. Not only will you save money on decorations, but you’ll keep the kids entertained for hours too. Once you’re done, tie some clear string around them and hang them from wherever you like.
Find your signature scent
Transform the ambiance in your home with a beautiful scented candle. No matter whether you’re a fan of nutmeg, cinnamon or vanilla, there are so many different scents these days to choose from!
Have you been meaning to pick up a beautiful new fluffy rug for a while now? Or perhaps you’ve been wanting to upcycle that old table that never gets used? Before Christmas arrives, create a gorgeous space perfect for the whole family and get cosy together.
And there you have it – your winter wonderland is complete! Once you’ve hung up your decorations, found the ideal spot for your tree and picked up some scented candles, there’s hopefully only one thing left to worry about – cooking your Christmas dinner!
