With December fast approaching, it’s time to kit out your rented flat with sparkles and lots of fun festive décor. Christmas is a time to spread cheer so let’s keep everyone happy this season (including your landlord) with these easy, damage-free decoration ideas from Fatma Azakli, Resident Services Manager at Grainger plc’s new Windlass Apartments.
“Give your apartment the perfect Christmas glow-up with festive candle displays. Not only do these create a cosy atmosphere for those cold, dark December nights, they also smell great! Opting for a classic Christmas scent, such as mulled wine or cinnamon results in the ultimate festive atmosphere. You can also use non-Christmas scented candles and make use of candles you may already own, by grouping several together and surrounding them with conifer cones and berries for the perfect Christmas candle display.”
“A super easy way to give your flat that much-loved Christmas feel is by opting for a classic Christmas colour theme throughout.
“Think red tablecloths, green cushions, white napkins – whatever works for you. You can also make use of anything red, white or green you may already have and add in a few extra candy canes or Santa hats to give them a Christmas twist.”
Get creative with DIY vases
“Creating your own Christmas themed vase is a super cost-effective way to make use of those extra fairy lights and decorations that don’t quite make it onto the tree.
“Using a vase you already own, simply add in a selection of festive coloured baubles and fairy lights and you have the perfect DIY Christmas display.”
4. Keep it simple with garlands and wreaths
“Garlands can be placed along TV units, tables or around hanging picture frames and doors, instantly adding a wow factor to any room. No-nail hanging strips which can be bought from any local DIY shop are the perfect tool to give your walls a Christmas facelift as it will allow you to hand garlands and wreaths damage free.”
5. Perfect that festive playlist
“Nothing says Christmas quite like rocking around the Christmas tree with a glass of your favourite tipple. Get friends and family firmly in the festive spirit this year by creating the ultimate Christmas Spotify playlist to dance, drink and decorate to!”
“Get creative with playlists and add your favourite tracks to make those mundane Christmas jobs more enjoyable. Make a mix for wrapping the presents, cooking the turkey, and even the big Christmas clean up.”
