Lighting

Decorating with lights is a long-held tradition for good reason. Lights are always fun to look at, and they help liven up a space and set the tone for the season or upcoming activities. Lights are especially helpful as the days start to get shorter and the dark hours start earlier. For the holidays, you should consider your outdoor lighting and your indoor lighting as you prepare your home for the festivities.

For outdoor lighting, you can go simple with a few strands of white or colored lights draped around your tree or fence. If you have the time and budget, you can also go wild with the lighting! You can sync your lights to music, create full-home lightscapes, or include light-up ornaments in your yard to bring a beautiful glow to all passersby.

If you are going to upgrade your indoor lighting for the holidays, then hanging strands around windows, in between rafters, or lining stair railings can help to get your home in the mood for fun. Depending on the room, you could also swap your normal light bulbs for colored bulbs to create a fun colorscape for a party or event.

Bring Cheer to Every Room

Decorations often don’t go beyond the living room. This season, bring some cheer to the bedrooms, kitchen, dining room, living room, entertainment room, and even the bathroom with some of these fun ideas:

  • Scented candles
  • Themed hand towels
  • Garlands wrapped around furniture or mirrors
  • Wreathes
  • Table centerpieces and decorations
  • Plates of cookies and treats
  • Soft themed music playing throughout the home

No matter what you do, it’s always fun to find new ways to decorate and get yourself and others in the holiday mood. Get creative this year and try to bring joy to all the corners of your home.

Choose a Color Scheme

If you want your home to feel like it truly is a whole, cohesive unit, choose a color scheme that can match in every area. You can decorate with wintery blue accents, green garlands and trees, rainbow-colored presents, red and white candy cane theme, rustic woods, glittery metallics, and more! Find a color scheme or decoration theme that you love, and keep it consistent in every area.

We hope these tips will help you make your home welcoming and fun this holiday season. If you need a place to keep your decorations after the holidays end, or a spot to put some extra belongings, Eagle Crossing Self Storage in Windsor is ready to help. Contact us today to reserve your own unit!
