On top of that, there are a lot of Christmas decoration ideas available, which can make the whole process overwhelming. So, it’s important to sift through the information and design trends and focus on things that you truly want for your home. Items that show off your personality and give you serenity whenever you walk into your home. We’ve come up with holiday decorating tips that will help you bring your vision to life.
Focus on the main areas in your home
If you’re on a budget or don’t have the time to revamp your entire house, then focusing on the main spaces can be a game-changer for your home. Those main areas include the kitchen, outside area, living room and bathrooms. You’ll firstly need to declutter the space and part ways with anything that you no longer use.
Once you’ve freed up space, you can look into what you are interested in changing. Maybe you’re thinking of getting a new couch for your living room. If so, you can take a look at Coricraft in Somerset West and get a quality couch that will aesthetically suit your living room. They also have TV cabinets, chairs, and dining room tables if you plan on doing a deep dive and revamping your entire space.
Or you can visit Carrol Boyes, a proudly South African shop that is women-led and multicultural. They have a wide selection of items that will help revamp your home and spruce up your bathroom or dining area.
Get scented candles for your home
Candles are one of the latest trends that everyone is taking a liking to. But, who can blame them? Not only are candles aesthetically pleasing, but they smell amazing, and they create an intimate and relaxing atmosphere around the house. For the holiday season, you can opt for seasonal scented candles to keep the festive spirit alive. Shop @home in Somerset Mall and enjoy the ambience it creates in your home this season.
Get your kitchen ready
One great thing about the festive season is that you can never eat too much. And whether you’re making a leg of lamb, trifle or a seafood dish, you should always do it in style. So, make sure you purchase new pots and plates for you and your family. Shop homeware at Le Creuset or YuppieChef, where you can find a range of quality, yet trendy cookware sets, dinnerware, storage items and more to make your kitchen look chic. Plus there is nothing as satisfying as cooking up a storm and dishing up in style. Be sure to pop in at Somerset Mall and get all you need for your kitchen.
Prepare for your house guests
Whether you're renting out your home or having family and friends over from out of town, you want to make them feel comfortable; like they’re at home. Take the time to tidy up and also purchase anything that the room might need. If you’ve been planning to visit a bed shop near you, then you should come to the leading furniture stores in the Somerset West area.
