As holidays approach us, things start to get messy. Life is still happening, yet all of your family and friends are coming into town to visit, the kitchen is constantly in use to prepare the feast, and everything just seems to be all over the place.
Whether you’re selling your home this winter or you just need some quick tips to get your home spruced up for the holidays, this is where to start! Take a look at these amazing and easy DIY staging tips and ideas for the holidays.
Add Holiday Decor
Some of us don’t like to go all out during the holidays with all of the usual decor, but it can be a simple and valuable touch to your home. Whether it’s for family, friends, or a potential buyer, give your home the warm and festive feel your guests need to feel at home. There are many ways to do this, such as adding scents in the form of candles or cooking. Another option is to get the classic Christmas decor and hang your mistletoes, wreaths, pine cones, lights, and more!
Compliment the tone of your home
Instead of clashing colors together just to get out the holiday decorations, try picking colors and decor that compliments the furniture, wall paper/paint, lighting, etc. If you’ve got the classic white tone or modern look to your family room, consider getting a white tree instead, and wrapping with shiny ornaments to compliment the tone of the room. If you have a more colorful set of furniture and wall paint, stick with the old fashioned earthy color tree and decor such as cranberries, wreaths, pines, and more!
Highlight the Features
Instead of putting the prettiest of decorations in a random corner to fill space, or just for the sake of decorating, use your creativity to decorate around those gorgeous features your home has to offer. For example, if you have one of those large, beautiful wood floored staircases with a nice looking hand rail, consider wrapping the hand rail with lights and stockings!
Mind Your Space
Most times, a Christmas tree is going to a hassle to get in and out, find a place to put it, and make it work for all the family traffic coming through your living room this month. Try finding a spot for the tree that doesn’t make the room look smaller but actually compliments the size and layout of it. This can help for those family events and everyone bringing things in and out of the home and also makes your potential buyers visualize their holidays there and points out the size of your home!
At the end of the day, the idea is to give your home a warm and cozy feel to it so no matter who is in your home, they get that sense of peace and relaxation of being “at home”. The fun part of this comes with finding a way to decorate your home to your liking, mixing and matching color schemes, being creative with placements, and still offering that feeling for your guests. We hope this was at least some what helpful in your search to redefine your home this holiday!
