Want to make your home look magical at Christmas but don’t know where to start?
Our experts are here to help with top tips on how to decorate your home at Christmas. By following our advice and adding some simple decorations, you can transform your home into a winter wonderland that will wow your guests and seriously impress your neighbours.
Use Multipurpose Decorations
Have you ever bought a Christmas decoration with a specific location in mind, only to find it doesn’t fit or look anything like you imagined? Don’t worry, we’ve all been there.
That’s why we’re big fans of multipurpose decorations. Because they can be used inside and outside your home, you can easily change their location if they don’t look right. By moving them from place to place, you can also give your home a fresh look every Christmas.
Our winter-weathered LED birch trees are a beautiful example. They’re great for adding a warming ambience to indoor spaces but look just as striking displayed outside your home.
Are some of your older decorations falling to pieces? Before you head out into the cold and join the crazed hordes of Christmas shoppers, get creative!
Paper snowflakes, festive bunting – there are lots of traditional decorations you can make to add a nostalgic feel to your home. You can also paint pine cones green to create miniature Christmas trees or use stencils to give baubles a festive makeover.
Not only are these ideas cheap to do, but they’re eco-friendly and fun for kids.
Look On The Bright Side
Lighting is perfect for creating a cosy ambience at Christmas and adding a bit of seasonal sparkle to your home. But why stop short at traditional string lights?
Stand out from the rest of the street by decorating your lawn with LED candy canes or illuminating your home with a Christmas tree rope light. You could even project festive patterns onto the front of your home with a laser light projector. The kids will love ’em!
We’re also big fans of outdoor lights.
Say goodbye to heading out into the cold night air to press the on and off switch, because our battery lights have a timer function to automatically turn on. They could even save you money on the electricity bill because you don’t have to plug them in.
Roasting chestnuts on an open fire, candlelit rooms and thousands of Christmas lights – these things might be the epitome of Christmas, but they’re also dangerous if done wrong.
Everybody loves the cosy warmth of an open fire, but it’s important to have safety precautions in place, such as a CO2 alarm to check for carbon monoxide. You could also use one of our metal Christmas fireguards to deter pets and children from getting too close to the flames.
Freestanding for easy placement and decorated with charming images of snowmen and Santa Claus, they look gorgeous with the warm glow of a fire shining through.
Battery-powered LED candles are also an attractive addition to your home. They’re specially designed to recreate the fluttering effect of a real candle but are safer to use if you have little ones running around.
If you’re plugging outdoor lights into an exterior socket, make sure it has a weatherproof enclosure to protect it from the rain. Alternatively, use battery lights. We love them because there are no trailing wires to trip over or overloaded plugs to trip the electric.
