Transform Your Home for the Holidays in Three Easy Steps

Decorating for the holidays does not have to be a chore. In fact, it should be fun. The biggest mistake homeowners make during this special time of year is to think they must drape every inch of their house in Christmas finery. By focusing on only three areas within your house, your interior will look like it has been fully decorated by a professional.

The Tree

Decorating the tree used to mean hours of assembly followed by more hours spent on stringing the lights through it. By the time you got around to hanging ornaments, the fun was gone. Consider one of today’s modern trees. They are pre-lit, and they often have only two or three sections to put together. You can even find ones with enough berries and pinecones already attached that ornaments are not necessary.

The Dining Room Table

If you are like most people, you will have a steady flow of guests gathering around the dining room table throughout the holiday season. Dress your table with a red, green, or gold runner. Place a Christmas centerpiece on top, and finish the look off with holiday chargers, napkins, and glasses at each seat. Battery powered lights can be added to the centerpiece for some extra sparkle.

The Fireplace

As adults we admire an elegant fireplace during the holidays while children focus on this area as Santa’s big entrance. When decorating for children, hang coordinating stockings for each family member. Place a candy garland across the mantel, and hang a portrait of the big guy himself above. For a more grown-up look, use a pine garland and hang a matching wreath. Consider a decorative fire screen in place of stockings.

Once you have decorated the fireplace, your tree, and the dining room table, the entire house will look amazing. By having these three simple focal points ready for Christmas, your guests will think you have done a wonderful job decking the halls.

Furniture In The Future

Just imagine you have these kinds of stuffs at home, geez life could be easier! I would love to have these, the thing is who can copy the exact how flexible it is without any hassle at all. I remember when we were still living in the old house, the one I got when I was still single. I wanted to have a sliding door of our closet, but the next few months, it is not working at all. Most of the time I was always having a hard time pushing and pulling the sliding door, the money was wasted because I need to hire someone again to fix it; we decided to replace it with a real door. I like these stuffs but give me someone who can really do it.
