Whether you fancy a complete overhaul or just making smaller changes, we’ve made a list and checked it twice to help your home look glorious for your guests.
Deck the Halls: Hallway decorating ideas for Christmas
There’s nothing like making an entrance. Welcome your guests in style with a heavenly hallway. A mirror is a wonderful way to add in more light and create the illusion of more space and photos show personality. Don’t forget practical touches like coat racks, shoe storage and umbrella stands. If you’re looking to change your flooring, not only do hallway tiles make a great first impression, but they are also hardwearing, durable and easy to clean (especially muddy footprints).
Rock around the Christmas tree: Decorate your Living Room for Christmas
Living rooms are a hive of activity over the festive period, with presents under the tree and comfy sofas to chat/nap on! Furniture trends for 2022 will see lovely rounded edges and natural materials, so these are great styles to invest in if you want a modern but timeless look. Throws are perfect for snuggling up to watch a festive film, and plants add a splash of greenery. Opting for tiles in your lounge or living room can create a stylish space, especially if you’ve opted for an open plan layout.
For more warmth, invest in underfloor heating or introduce a lovely big rug to contrast or coordinate with your decor.
And don’t forget to glam up your fireplace to impress Santa when he comes down the chimney!
Cooking up a storm: Decorating ideas for your kitchen this Christmas
We all spend a lot of time in the kitchen over Christmas, preparing an endless cycle of meals and drinks – plus the dreaded washing up. Spend the months in the run up to the big day getting organised. Have a sort out and create extra space in your fridge and freezer ready for all the incoming goodies, and sort through your pots, pans, cutlery and crockery, it’s amazing how liberating a reordered cupboard can make you feel! Make the time you spend around the hob more harmonious with a new splashback to catch any splatter from the sprouts.
Serving up some style – Dining room ideas for Christmas
Dine in style by giving your dining room a new lease of life. Invest in comfortable chairs for your guests, a seasonal tablecloth and some jazzy artwork. If you’re thinking of revamping your dining room, you could get stylish underfoot with wood effect tiles to wow without the hefty price tag of real timber or create a feature wall to introduce some interest without redoing the whole room. Our favourite styles at the moment are split-face, hexagons and scales to pack a real punch.
Soak away the stress: Bathroom decorating ideas for Christmas
After all the festive flurry, there’s no better way to relax than a soak in the tub or revitalise under a nice warm power shower in a beautiful bathroom. Bathscaping is a wonderful trend to follow, that simply involves adding small touches to your bathroom to make a big difference. Why not treat yourself to a luxurious bathmat, matching dispensers, or a tray to hold candles and a book while you unwind in peace. Create a feature wall in your bathroom from mosaics to emulate a luxury spa, go for a classic monochrome or keep it chic with soft beige, grey or white.
Spruce up the spare room for festive guests
Be our guest! Don’t forget the spare room to guarantee a good night’s sleep for your visitors. Luxury bedding will go down a treat, as will throw cushions, and robes and slippers if you really want to wow. When it comes to bedroom decoration, a statement floor or wall can add the wow factor to a guest room. Worried that it’ll be too chilly underfoot? Go for some luxurious under-floor heating to keep you warm this winter, or include some deep pile rugs.
Hope you’ve had yourself a merry little browse through this post and happy festive decorating!
