Christmas home décor trends

By 24th December 2018Buyer's Advice

With the mad rush during December and the run-up to Christmas, it can be very overwhelming when it comes to deciding how you want to decorate your home.

Time is precious and usually spent buying Christmas presents and making sure you’ve got enough turkey for the entire extended family.

This often ends in your home being neglected and the same decorations being used year after year.

We thought it was time to mix things up a little bit.

So, whether you’re a last-minute decorator or you’re already planning for Christmas 2019, we’ve collaborated the most exciting and festive trends for your perfect Christmas.


Multiple Trees

You heard it here first, multiple trees are the way forward!

Instead of having just one tree in the main room of your house, why not have multiple trees dotted around the house. This allows many themes and colours to be explored, giving a different feel in each part.

This is particularly exciting for kids if they get to have their very own tree.

Miniature trees have also made a big appearance for the same reason but with less of the hassle.

Inject a bit of Christmas spirit throughout the house rather than just the living room.


Outdoorsy decorations

Bring the outdoors indoors!

Pine cones, wooden decorations and real fern garlands or wreaths give a rustic and more traditional feel to your home.

So, spruce it up with some woodland features this Christmas!


Big knit blankets instead of tree skirts

Tree skirts can often be rather offensive to the eyes and ruin the hard work put into decorating the tree, but they don’t have to be!

This year why not try a big knitted blanket?

These help keep your floor clear, can double as fake snow and create a soft and comfy space for lounging.


Colour scheme

If you ask people what their favourite Christmas colour scheme is, it’ll probably change from year to year. With so much choice, it’s hard to decide!

From the metal colour schemes of rose golds – golds and silvers, to neutrals, pastels, and the more modern bolder colours, just thinking about it can make you tired.

We suggest you do a bit of research before you go bauble mad.

What is the best colour for your home décor? Do you want to explore multiple themes throughout your home? Are you more of a traditional Christmas décor kind of person?

Once you’ve identified the answer, making those decisions will be much easier, we promise!


Large ornaments

A big trend this year is incorporating larger ornaments into your décor. This makes larger rooms feel cosier and homelier.

Whatever your preferred décor style, we hope you have a fantastic Christmas and we’ll see you in the New Year!
