Buckinghamshire housebuilder, Barratt Homes is spreading some Christmas cheer with its favourite decoration tips and tricks for the holiday season.
Christmas is an important time of year for homeowners and property seekers alike, with everyone wanting the perfect location to host a holiday to remember.
A white Christmas is never guaranteed, but that doesn’t mean homeowners can’t bring the festive spirit indoors by adding some sparkle to their décor.
- Turn your house into your own Christmas grotto
Bring the beauty of the outdoors in by visiting a local park and taking some holly, pine cones and ivy home with you. Holly can be dressed along a fireplace or positioned in the corner of photo frames, while ivy makes a great feature on the handrail of your staircase. If you’re feeling extra festive you can craft a homemade wreath using pine cones.
- Light up your home with DIY fireflies
Want your whole house to twinkle? Try placing a string of fairy lights into a large jar, dim the lights and watch your own homemade fireflies come to life. This festive trick also works with baubles inside the jar as a quick and easy Christmas decoration.
- Unravel the beauty of ribbon
Treat your Barratt home like a gift by wrapping it like you would a present. Ribbon is the new tree and interior decoration every property should have this Christmas. Substitute tinsel for some thoughtfully placed ribbon on your tree this year for a touch of decadence.
- Deep tones for a warmer home
Décor isn’t just about visual satisfaction, but an atmospheric one too. Deep and rich tones in a home around the Christmas period create the festive feel we all know and love. Start by switching your regular cushions with some deep burgundy shades and crisp forest greens.
- Walking in a winter wonderland
Prepping your house for the festive season doesn’t have to be complicated. Go for an all-white theme to turn your home into your very own winter wonderland. Nothing says Christmas like a snow tipped tree, all white sheets and a touch of sparkle.
Barratt Homes build their properties with occasions like Christmas in mind; designing large open plan entertaining spaces and spacious bedrooms for when family and friends come to stay.
