Time to delve into the containers you stored away last year, and bring out the Christmas décor! Also, if you’re like us, one of your first thoughts when you’re looking at a floorplan (or a home you’re interested in buying) is “where would the Christmas tree go”?
Is there a lovely bay window in the living room just begging to be graced with a Fraser Fir? Maybe an alcove near the fireplace where the soft glow of Christmas lights would be the finishing touch?
However, if you’re looking to spread the Christmas cheer, consider placing trees in other locations throughout your home this year. We consulted our Interior Designers, Lindsey Kehres and Madison McGraw-Parries, for their thoughts on unique Christmas tree placement.
Pro Tip: Try a slim tree to keep the landing walking space free. For a one-stop-shop, craft stores like Michaels and Hobby Lobby often feature table-top trees with an abundance of varying décor styles and mini ornaments.
Bring some Christmas magic to this space with a small table-top tree. Pro-Tip: If you have counterspace in your mudroom, use it as a Christmas wrapping-command center, and put your wrapping paper on display with your mini-tree.
What better place to showcase Christmas spirit than immediately upon your guests’ arrival? Pro-tip: Arrange small trees in slim planters.
Does one of your living or dining spaces share a glass door or large windows with your porch? For a unique take on this approach, layer trees of varying sizes to give the room a winter wonderland feel.
Pro-Tip: To keep this approach simple and cost effective, use flocked trees with white lights. “Placing trees in front of large windows serves two purposes – you’re enjoying them from inside, and they add to your exterior décor” says Madison. If you want to place an indoor tree in front of a large window of the left of your home but don’t have space in the similar window on the right side, consider what types of outdoor décor you can use to create balance.
