Happy Home Improvement Holidays!
December is here, Christmas songs are officially allowed on our office radios and the decorations have begun to sneak into our homes. This blog post will give you our top five tips to create a festive, cosy and beautiful home this year.
The weather outside may be frightful, but read on to find out how to keep your inside space looking delightful (with the help of bifold doors!).
(Bristol Bi-fold's note: When searching for a bi-fold door, suppliers won't always give you all the information you need - that's why we've provided you with a FREE eBook: "The 7 Secrets Other Bi-fold Door Suppliers Won't Tell You": Don't miss out, click here to download it now.)
With family from all corners of the country descending on you for Christmas it can sometimes hard to keep your home looking glorious (as it is all year round...right?) but with a few simple touches it's easy to hide clutter with festive décor and keep family of all ages occupied.
We couldn't go through a whole blog post without a little mention of bifold doors (as they are our very favourite thing to discuss!) and they really can be a great focal point for Christmas decoration. We've seen customers adorn the edges of their doors with twinkling lights, creating a rather grand entrance as well as looking beautiful from the outside. Exciting and beautiful to look at for old and young.
Now you've made a grand entrance, what's good to look at out of your doors? Some people enjoy going all out with Christmas lights, a sleigh on the roof and reindeers in the front lawn...but if that's not your bag, some simple fairy lights around your doorways or above your porch can look simple, cosy and festive.
Talking of cosy...
A roaring fire is a staple piece of everyone's ideal Christmas, surely? They can make homes of all shapes and sizes feel like a Christmas song lyric. But if, like the majority of us, you don't have a traditional log fire, all is not lost! The vast array of gas fires available can help solve this, with many affixing to a wall and instantly creating a warm fuzzy feeling inside! Just think of that subtle glow reflecting out into the blackness through your bifold doors. Beware of jealous neighbours!
Don't blow the budget!
Everyone wants to have Christmas in a home they deign as 'perfect' but don't have eyes bigger than your wallet/timescale! Christmas is, after all, about spending times with loved ones and your refurbished kitchen, or your brand new extension will pale in comparison.
