Christmas is upon us and for keen decorators, it’s time to start getting creative. Below, we explore some quick and easy Christmas decoration ideas suitable for all spaces, from compact apartments to spacious detached homes.
Create a festive table centrepiece
Looking for simple Christmas kitchen ideas? Whether you’re hosting a champagne-soaked brunch or a traditional Christmas dinner, a festive centrepiece will take your table setting to the next level. While there are some beautiful options available from department stores and gift shops, there’s something special about making your own Christmas centrepiece. Jump onto Instagram and Pinterest for inspiration on how to decorate your home for Christmas.
Worried about fitting everyone around the table? Extendable dining tables are a clever addition to your home, offering extra space when you need it.
Spruce up your fireplace
Fireplaces are quintessentially Christmassy and there are so many ways to give yours a festive facelift. Start with hanging stockings, then get creative with garlands, wreaths, ribbons, candles and other festive accessories. If you don’t use your fireplace to burn wood, decorating the hearth with candles and ornaments is a fun way to bring your fireplace to life for the holiday season.
Shimmer and shine with fairy lights
When it comes to decorating your home for Christmas, fairy lights aren’t just for the tree. String them up around your home to create instant Christmas cheer. Drape a few strands along the mantlepiece, across the windowsill and over your coat rack for a warm welcome. Fairy lights are also an easy solution if you’re looking for Christmas bedroom ideas with added sparkle.
Pro tip: If you’ve been thinking about investing in a new mirror for your space, now is the time. Mirrors not only reflect natural light, but also the sparkle cast by strings of fairy lights. This will make your whole space look so much more magical for the festive season.
Mirrors are always a wonderful addition to narrow spaces like hallways. When it comes to Christmas hallway ideas, there’s no need to get extravagant. A simple bough of greenery, string of lights or even a few sprigs of holly on your mirror will really brighten the mood.
Get a Christmas tree at all costs
Nothing brings the festive cheer quite like a Christmas tree. Even if you don’t have the space for a lush Norwegian spruce, there are still plenty of opportunities to bring a little evergreen magic into your home.
Sideboards are a great place to display miniature Christmas trees. If you can’t find a tree small enough to set up on your sideboard, decorating the top with pinecones, tinsel, candles and other festive trinkets is one of the best Christmas living room ideas. You could even hang a small wreath or stockings from the drawer handles.
If you’re an eco-warrior and don’t like the idea of chopping down a tree, consider an artificial one or invest in a miniature evergreen from your local garden centre. With the latter option, you can decorate it with lights and baubles for the Christmas season, then strip it down and keep it as a house plant for the rest of the year!
