Treat your Tree this Christmas Posted On 27 November 2020

As the winter season approaches, attention will soon turn to adorning the house during the busy Christmas period.
 
And there is no bigger opportunity to nail decoration than ensuring that the Christmas tree radiates splendour throughout the home. So here are some tips on how to make everybody envious of your tree, this year.
 
Fake vs. Real?
 
Every year, the question of a real or fake Christmas tree raises much debate through households. There are, indeed, pros and cons for both, making that key decision all the more difficult. Real trees provide an unmistakable, authentic Christmas feeling through their smell, as well as their individual shape and size. However, they do require extensive maintenance throughout the festive season, as well as the hassle of getting rid of them after it’s all over.
 
On the other hand, an artificial tree requires no regular maintenance, the proportions are all symmetrical, and they can be used for many years. Although, a study has shown that as a result of the carbon footprint caused from making artificial trees, a single tree would need to be used for ten Christmasses to keep the environmental impact lower than that of a real tree. But whatever your decision, it’s the decoration which is the most important thing.
 
Colour Schemes
 
If you fancy changing up your tree theme this year, then here are a couple of ideas to brighten up your home.
 
1) Keep it Traditional
 
If you’re someone who usually prefers to go bold with colour schemes, why not go back to the traditional colours of Christmas. A traditional Christmas tree makes a home feel extra festive and homely with a splash of red, so why not warm up the room this winter?
Red goes well with gold and green and is a classic Christmas combination with warm white lights.
 
2) Bring the Snow inside
 
Even if the weather flatters to deceive, give the inside of your home the full winter experience and pick a white colour scheme to go with your tree. This stark colour compliments the lush green of the tree and also pairs perfectly with the blue or white of an artificial tree.
Snow spray is a great way to turn a boring tree into something more special.
 
3) Add Some Luxury
 
If your home boasts darker tones to the walls and furniture continue in this vein with your tree and choose rich gold and black decorations. These colours work well with the dark green of a tree and really add a sense of class to proceedings.
Wooden tree decorations complete the scene with some natural material added to the luxury.
