How to decorate your whole home for Christmas

November 1, 2023


Christmas is just around the corner so it’s time to start thinking about getting the decorations out. Nothing makes you feel Christmas spirit quite like putting up the lights and decorating the tree with your loved ones. The day we can deck our halls with all the festive trimmings is when the festive season really start.

Living room

The living room is the heart of your home and hub of most Christmas festivities. For most of us, we’ll gather around a Christmas tree on the big day and have guests round to unwind and celebrate at the end of the year. It’s important to keep it cosy and inviting and to plan for plenty of space of to get your gifts under the tree.

Nothing puts you in the Yuletide mood quite like an abundance of greenery, lights, tinsel and stockings. You could keep it subtle with the traditional red, greens and gold or you could give your home a real Santa’s workshop atmosphere with a maximalist decorating scheme.


Looking at the neighbourhood light displays is a favourite seasonal pastime for many so why not make your garden stand out with some outdoor Christmas lights? Convert the outside of your home into Santa’s Grotto with multi-coloured LEDs, Christmas silhouettes and light-up outdoor Christmas trees.

Just think: twinkling icicles framing your windows, flashing rope lights bedecked across the fences and jolly evergreen wreaths on the front of your door. If you’re looking to show your appreciation for the religious side of Christmas, a light-up nativity scene is the perfect reminder of the reason for the season.


Though they aren’t always the main event, your entrance is often the first-place visitors see in your home. Hallway and stairs are the perfect place to add garlands, indoor lights and tinsel to bannisters, doors and across the ceiling. You could even add a small Christmas scene to an entryway table.

Don’t worry if you don’t have much in the way of space. There are many ways to transform small spaces into a Christmas wonderland, from advent wall calendars, festive wreaths and seasonal flower arrangements.


It can be counterproductive to decorate some areas of your home, like your kitchen and bathroom. This doesn’t mean that they must be completely absent of Christmas cheer though, so think about adding some festive scents as the perfect finishing touch to winter décor.

There are some smells that are quintessential Christmas, from nutmeg and cinnamon to fir and pine. Place candles around the kitchen or try your hand at a seasonal simmer point to really make your house smell like winter. Essential oils and air fresheners are ideal for
