Start with your tree
A tree is the starting point of any Christmas preparations. Think about what type of tree you want and what be the most practical for your home and the space that it will sit in. Try to choose something that fits perfectly with the space you have available. Too large and the tree will make your room look small; too small and your tree will look lost within a cavernous space.
Also, think about whether you want a real tree or an artificial tree. Both have pros and cons, but the choice can actually be quite easy. Think about your ability to store the tree for the rest of the year if you buy an artificial one. If you prefer a real tree think about whether you can fit it in your car them whether you can easily carry it to your home. Another thing to consider with artificial trees is their quality. although cheaper options can be appealing consider measurability and how many years you expect to be able to use your tree.
If you buy an artificial tree, do not forget that you will also be limited by its style year on year. By choosing a real tree, you get to pick every year under you can make the selection process a family occasion. But think about what is best for you and the practicalities that you have to work to.
The outside of your home
Start the experience of the festive season with some external decorations. Your home does not need to be the showiest place in your neighborhood, but some well-placed lights can create a feeling of tradition and excitement every time you arrive back.
Try to start from the outside and work in as you think about your Christmas theme. That way, you can create a consistent style outside and in to create a relaxing, warming vibe. Once you know this, you can build your plan for your decorations and Christmas lights.
Look throughout your home and consider all the rooms and places you want to decorate. Don’t forget those often-used rooms such as the bathroom that can be forgotten about at Christmas. But you will thank yourself for it if you have a few festive aromas and colors to brighten up the bog-standard bathroom.
For this, start thinking about your plan early. You’ll be able to prep your own decorations and make everything tailor-made just for you.
Lights, lights, and more lights!
Most Christmas magic is created by lights. Gentle twinkles and warming glows are hallmarks of the festive season. In fact, some of the best lighting is so subtle that you may not even notice it until it is turned off.
But think carefully about creating light without making your house too bright. This balance can easily be achieved by taking a step back and thinking about each room carefully with your interior design eyes wide open!
By getting organized early and thinking about the best plan for your home, you can reclaim so much of the festive season to actually be enjoyed.
The creative license is yours. However large or small your home, you can make it a joyful, festive space for your family with a little research and effort. Take the time to make this the best family Christmas you have had in years!
