An Oak Dining Table and More – Christmas Interior Tips for a Great Festive SeasonJamie Smith
Amazingly there are less than seven weeks left until Christmas, which means it’s time to start getting ready for all the fun and merriment the festive season has in store. For some, the realisation of how quickly Christmas is approaching may evoke feelings of mass excitement, while others might feel completely panic-stricken with so much to do in the oncoming weeks. However, it’s important to keep calm, as there is still plenty of time left and we’ve got some helpful suggestions on how
to prepare your home for Christmas, from how to make your space look bigger to finding an oak dining table for the perfect Christmas lunch.
Create more space
When it comes to preparing your home for Christmas it’s important to consider the utilisation of space. With more people, presents, decorations and a Christmas tree to consider, the layout of your home can need a little re-thinking to make better use of the space. Tackle each room logically and where possible declutter or get rid of unnecessary items. Also, don’t forget to find a specific area for the tree that isn’t going to impede on walkways and is easy to run the vacuum round to get rid of pesky pine needles.
Oak dining table delights
A crucial element of Christmas is the socialising and entertaining. Therefore you want to make sure your dining room doesn’t put a dampener on the celebrations. To do this why not consider giving it a little makeover. A lick of new paint can work wonders in breathing new life into a room and giving it a fresh new look. Or even better, replace the dining room table and chairs with a quality oak dining table. You’re sure to impress guests by doing so. You can even upgrade your dining room display cabinets or sideboards to ensure your best china is delightfully displayed and put away in the right place.
Of course, at this time of year the drinks will be flowing freely, which makes spillages much more likely. However, you can ensure that there’s always a place to put a glass down. Simply keep surfaces as clear as possible, and add more surfaces throughout your home. Options include discreet nests of tables, oak coffee tables and hallway tables.
Give your home some extra sparkle
Finally, you can give your home a little added sparkle this Christmas. Why not add more mirrors that will reflect the light beautifully and give the illusion of more space? It doesn’t matter whether you prefer traditional oak mirrors or more contemporary styles; the key is to make your home look as light and shimmery as possible.
