If you’re looking for ways to add a bit of cheer to your home this holiday season, then look no further. We’ve put together some of the best decor trends for the festive season. 

Considering the impact of the pandemic, this year’s trends are budget-friendly, focusing on recycled materials and annual favourites. It’s time to get your decoration goodies out of storage!

Going green

Use recycled materials whenever possible. Wrap gifts with old fabric instead of expensive wrapping paper and choose to purchase eco-friendly, sustainable decor items. For example, you can fill a fruit bowl with pine cones, or make a wreath out of soft sticks from the garden. You could even consider recycling some of your older decorations that may be a bit worn and tired.

Get baking

Fill your home with the smell of the festive season while making seasonal treats. Spend an afternoon baking gingerbread cookies in the shape of Christmas trees with your little ones. This is a great bonding activity that doubles up as an inexpensive decor opportunity - just don’t eat them all at once!

Reuse old decorations

The holidays are a time for nostalgia and decor. Don’t forget about the old decorations that you have in storage. This is the only time of year that the long strings of tinsel and brightly coloured baubles get to be put out, so give them the chance.  

Downsize

Normally, the holidays are a time for reconnecting with family, group gatherings and large feasts. This year, there’s a trend social distancing as COVID has restricted travel and the size of events. These small-scale celebrations can be made memorable by cooking together, starting a new family tradition or hosting a virtual gathering. 

Go big with your tree

Along with the trend of keeping the holiday season to limited gatherings, there’s also a trend for making the home a particularly festive space. At the end of the day, we are all spending much more time in our households after all! One way to do this is to get a supersized tree and decorate it with sentimental ornaments, grandma’s vintage decorations and DIY trinkets.

This festive season, there’s a growing sentiment of gratitude and hope. It’s been a challenging year for many and decorating the home is one way to lighten the mood. 

Once the holiday season has passed, you can store these decorations and bring them out again next year as a reminder of joyful times. We offer conveniently located storage units across the UK to keep your decor items safe and secure during the year. Contact us at 0800 0852 855 to find out more.
