Winter is coming, are you excited? But do you have any decorations planned or setups you’d like to try? There is a vast amount of decor you could use or try. Some range from basic paintings, to mats and antique rugs, or even big pieces for your living room!
Many people like to put up trees with Christmas lights or put up candy canes and gingerbread men decorations. But it’s always the same stuff every year! Sometimes a little change can add some variety. Maybe a new electric fireplace, some welcome signs for winter, or maybe even some little plastic miniature trees and snowflakes!
The idea is to just decorate for a season we all know and love. And is a season in which the most holidays are celebrated around the world! And you should spice your home up, after all, it is your own! Show your love for the winter season with these great decor ideas:
Signs and Hanging Art
Hanging art and signs are some of the most inexpensive ways to decorate. They are cheap, affordable, and easy to set up for the common person! Due to this, they’re a great and easy way to spruce up your home atmosphere. Setting up new posters is a great way to show off interests and hobbies!
And you can set up as much or as little as you like. No one can stop you from setting up a ‘Charlie Brown Christmas’ poster right next to your Christmas tree. Set up your decorations to be as appealing to you as possible, as you’re the one who has to see them every day!
To talk about the cost of hanging art is simple too. As I said, inexpensive, the prices for artwork can range from a simple $20 to $120 or more depending on where you look! Art prices depend on the artist, and how much they price their art at. But you can find affordable artwork anywhere, like Amazon for example!
You don’t just have to hang art either, you could also hang signs! Signs are there to add a little flavor to your environment that also makes a statement. Think about having a sign that says, ‘Warm Winter Wishes’ making the statement that you wish someone to have a warm winter, while also being an alliteration and appealing.
You could also mix match signs and art, having a great living room and entrance to your home filled with winter greetings. This would also be a good way to make an impression on a guest, saying that you welcome them and try to make it look appealing. Of course, decoration is always for you first, however.
Have you ever seen those little miniature trees or sets of people and decorations? Those are so cute and amazing little sculptures! You could use them in many ways, for example, you could make an end table into a little Christmas town.
They come with all kinds of pieces and parts. You could have little houses that look like presents, or you could have Santa Claus and his present train riding through the town. If you’re religious, you could also find the most popular miniature set of the nativity scene. The possibilities are endless!
They are also pretty cost-effective, ranging anywhere from $10 to $100 depending on how much you’d like to spend or what your budget is. This gives you a great opportunity to create amazing decor with multiple little sets of miniatures. Giving you more customization to how the decor works rather than just buying something and hanging it or placing it.
What home is really ready for Winter without a fireplace? Something that may have been a necessity for most homes to keep warm during the cold periods is now an effective decoration. A fireplace can add a ton of coziness to your atmosphere. Making your home appear and feel more welcoming, warm, and comfortable.
Fireplaces can come in many shapes and styles. A popular one is the ‘electric fireplace’, which can come in many styles. Two of which are TV consoles or in a style similar to the old-school fireplaces and chimneys. Both often come with settings that allow you to change the heat amount, thermostat, flame height, and allow the flame to flicker. That right there gives the electric fireplaces a great way to add to your home.
There are more than just those two styles, but those are the most common. There are also normal fireplaces, which tend to be more expensive to install and may not be offered in all area codes. Normal fireplaces are also great, but require more effort to install, while electric fireplaces are simple to use and put into a home without any renovation or construction.
Both offer a great addition to the atmosphere, providing warmth and giving you an older rustic feel. Electric fireplaces have a wide price range depending on how much you’re looking to spend and how extravagant you want the look. While normal fireplaces can cost thousands of dollars to add! Meaning an electric fireplace is more affordable.
The Classic Christmas Tree
What would any winter home be without the Christmas Tree? This is the most classic winter decoration in the world! Of course, not all cultures celebrate Christmas, but most do understand the meaning behind the Christmas tree. Thus making it a great addition to any home bringing a classical meaning with it.
Not only can you get a nice evergreen or pine Christmas tree, but you could also decorate it with all manner of ribbons, ornaments, or lights! This makes Christmas trees a very viable decoration, as you can change the look of the tree to be whatever you wish. So say you want it to be set next to the nativity scene, you could have the bright star on top with angels hanging off the branches.
As you can see, there are a lot of options you have to decorate your home and get it ready for the winter season! You can spend as little or as much as you desire to make your home just right for you and your guests. It does take a little bit of a creative mindset to make the decor flow with each other, but everyone has their tastes, likes, and dislikes.
Don’t let that discourage you though! Find out exactly what kinds of decorations and looks you’d like to go for and try them out. More likely than not, you’ll come up with some amazing decor idea that no one else has tried and improve upon making it unique to your own home. This would really set an example and start conversations with visiting guests or family members.
Go ahead and try out some new decorations for your home this winter season! Try the electric fireplaces to provide some heat or just decoration, make some changes to your same old tree each year, or maybe even try finding some new interesting artwork to display your love for the winter season.
