Getting your home Christmas ready!

How to get your home ready for Christmas 2021:

When you're hosting the family for Christmas, it's easy to get caught up in the little things. Such as, is 19 too old for the kids table? Does this tablecloth match the general vibe of the house? Is Greg's wife really gluten intolerant?

It can all get a little overwhelming, that's why Harvey is here with a few little tips to ensure your Christmas preparation is seamless.


A cluttered home is a stressful home! Therefore, decluttering your space is key to making this the Christmas preparation a whole lot easier.

A great way to get started on your decluttering journey is to create extra storage. Modular storage to sit beneath your clothing rack in a wardrobe is a great way to save a little space in the bedroom. Utilise the walls by adding shelving. This can be done in the bathroom and the kitchen, doing this adds vital space to your cupboards and pantries to help store all the additional Christmas gear.

Tip: Don't forget you can donate. If something no longer serves purpose for you, it might spark joy for someone who else at this wonderful time of year.

Stock the Pantry:

A well-stocked pantry is crucial for the Christmas host. Preparation before the big day is key to all things running smoothly. There's nothing worse than trying to find a shop open on December 25th for that parsley you'd forgotten about!

A well-stocked pantry pairs well with an open, well-lit kitchen. Natural light and Christmas lunch, what a combo! You'll love the classic styling of Timber-look Nova Blinds, boasting all the charm of real wood with the added bonus of withstanding moisture, steam and those pesky (often unexpected) kitchen splashes.

Christmas Lighting:

Hosting a Christmas get-together is one of life's simple pleasures. In saying that, guests can often make a space feel small. Never fear, by opening up the space with abundant natural light, it'll feel like a whole new room!

Vertical Blinds are a wonderfully simple way to add modern lines and gentle flow to a space. Their streamlined versatility lends well to larger windows often found in living spaces and won't get in the way of sliding doors on a high traffic occasion like Christmas!

Meanwhile, if it's soft, soft lighting you'd like this Christmas, look no further than Vertisheer Blinds. The elegance of Vertisheers gifts you holiday lighting like no other.

Now that you've taken care of the lighting, it's your decor's time to shine! Here are a handful of my personal (ever-changing) decor tips.

Christmas Decorations:

A wreath on the door is great, but your window decor is the hot topic this Christmas!

Frame your windows with everything from ornaments and ribbons to garlands and more! Add fairy lights to your Roller Blinds or Sheer Curtains to turn your space into a festive wonderland. Trust me, your guests will thank you for it (and your neighbours will be oh so jealous they hadn't thought of it first).
