'Tis the season to be jolly, and what better way to embrace the festive spirit than by transforming your home into a winter wonderland? If you are renting your home you might think that your decorating options are limited, but fear not! With a bit of creativity and some renter-friendly ideas, you can turn your space into a cosy Christmas haven without jeopardising your deposit.

Make a festive first impression

Add a festive wreath or a Christmassy doormat to your front door. These additions instantly set the tone for the season and require no permanent changes to your rental property.

Dress Up Windows

Adorn your windows with removable festive window clings or decals. Alternatively, consider hanging lightweight curtains in festive colours or patterns. This not only adds a touch of Christmas magic to your home but also provides an extra layer of insulation against the winter cold.

Command Strip Magic

These magical strips allow you to hang decorations without damaging your walls. String fairy lights around door frames, windows, or along shelves to create a warm and inviting ambiance. They can even be used to hang stockings, wreaths, or even lightweight ornaments.

Make your Dining Room Table the Star

Spruce up your dining table with festive tablecloths, placemats, and napkins. This simple touch can instantly transform your dining room into a winter wonderland. Add a homemade centrepiece crafted from candles and seasonal foliage for the perfect final touch.

Festive Throw Pillows and Blankets

Swap out your normal cushions for some with festive patterns or quotes. A cosy, Christmassy blanket can help bring some hygge into your home. 

DIY Decorations

Get creative and make your own decorations to hang around your home. Consider using materials like ribbon, paper, or fabric to create unique decorations that won't damage walls or surfaces. Hang them from hooks, knobs, or even the backs of chairs.

Candlelit Glow

Create a cosy ambiance with an array of candles. Choose flameless candles to be safe and place them in decorative holders or lanterns. The soft glow will add warmth and ambiance to your home.
