Top five tips to make your home sparkle this Christmas

There’s no need to panic with boxes of tangled lights and mis-matched decorations this year because we have got some top decoration tips from the experts at Lewisham Shopping Centre that are guaranteed to turn your home into a stylish winter wonderland with minimum hassle.
SORT IT OUT
Before you even start thinking about the decorations, get your home in order. Organise the main living spaces to make sure everything is set.
Bring down last year’s decorations from the attic, and look through to see which ones you’ll use again and decide what you’d like to buy.
This should be the first decoration you consider. Be sure to place it in a spacious, accessible area to be enjoyed by everyone.
Adorn with decorations of choice, making sure they complement the home – monochrome, woodland creatures and gold are all big trends this year. Remember there is no right way to decorate your Christmas tree, and visitors will enjoy seeing your personal touches.
Each year we receive a multitude of cards in the post so make sure they don’t go to waste.
Christmas cards can be an excellent, fairly low cost way to decorate the home. Attach them to ribbons and hang, or dot them across the house.
Lights are not just for the tree, and create a feeling of warmth and atmosphere in the home.
Decorating both inside and out will help your home be transformed into the winter wonderland that will impress friends and family.
Make sure to choose a ‘warm’ coloured glow to avoid that frosty feeling inside on those cold December nights.
Once the house is brimming with Christmas cheer, the last and most effective touch to Christmas decorating is the use of scented candles and oils.
The Christmas aromas will instantly take you back down memory lane, bringing Christmas 2013 to life.
