As soon as the chilly air kisses your cheeks, you begin to feel that yes, finally Christmas is coming. And now it’s just around the corner. You will begin to hear Christmas songs on the radio, people will start wearing warmer coats, you’ll see posters of malls’ Christmas sales, and you’ll start to mentally create your very own wish list. So when you look around your seemingly bare home, you might feel the urge to fill it with things that celebrate the Yuletide cheer.
You don’t need to remodel your home or come up with an entirely new set of furniture. All you need to do is to make tiny transformations with look-worthy corners of your home to invite the Christmas spirit.
First, let’s start with a “hidden” part of your home: bathroom tiles the bathroom. Hang a piece of small, printed material in your bathroom that is Christmas-related. You can also put in scented candles in green, red and gold. Even the towels you use may be designed with anything “Christmas-ey.”
In the kitchen it’s nice to coordinate your decor the same way as you did in the bathroom. You will have similar fixtures such as the sink, stainless rails, and perhaps even tile on the floor. Also, you can use Christmas potholders that look like stockings. They will really look good photos and will put you in the spirit to create tons of yummy food!
For your bedroom you can set a more intimate Yuletide mood. Decorative lights will look really great at night. Hang some along your windows and by the ceiling, and fill the children’s rooms with playful lights. If you have space for a little Christmas tree, like one that is 1-2 feet tall, that will also create a soft, romantic holiday theme. A Christmas picture, even from years back, will also look good framed by the bedside.
As for your living room, you know the drill. You should display your elaborate Christmas tree there. You may also put gifts under the tree and a stocking by the fireplace. Put accents here and there. The best places to put them would be at the center table and on the floor, if you can.
Also, do not forget to decorate your front porch. A Christmas wreath on your door will look divine and welcome visitors during the holiday season along with faux plants by the porch balustrade. And yes, brighten up with happy and dancing Christmas lights.
As you can see, full-on Christmas decoration is possible. Just remember to not overdo things. Little accents are more charming than ones that are overwhelming because of their size and design.
