Now that there is less than a month to go until the big day itself, we can fully embrace Christmas and celebrate everything that makes this time of year so special. You can wear your cosy Christmas jumpers with pride, watch your favourite festive films on repeat and transform your home into your very own Santa’s Grotto.
Whether you’re a fan of tradition and like to put your tree up 12 days before, or you’re someone that eagerly awaits the 1st of December to make the house all Christmassy, decorating your home is arguably one of the most fun things about the festive season. And as a garden building is an extended part of your house, why shouldn’t it be decorated just like the rest of the home? So, with Christmas just around the corner, we thought we would share our best tips for decorating your garden building for Christmas.
Add A Tree
Adding a tree inside your garden building will instantly make it feel more Christmassy. If you have one of our Garden Rooms with an apex or hipped roof, it will have a taller internal height so you may be able to fit in either a 6ft or 8ft Christmas tree that will look great placed in the corner of the room. You can adorn it with baubles, tinsel, reels of lights and don’t forget the star for the top! Don’t worry if you don’t have the space though, a small one decorated with fairy lights and mini decorations that’s sat on top of a desk or sideboard will look just as Christmassy.
Deck The Halls
Your interior decoration doesn’t need to stop with a tree, there are other festive trimmings you can add to help you decorate your garden building for Christmas. You can put up a garland around the frame of your door to create a festive archway and hang a curtain of string lights by the windows to add some warmth inside. You can even make the structure of the building a bit more Christmassy by wrapping tinsel around the trusses.
Change Up Your Interior Décor
Inject a bit of festive fun into your garden building with Christmas-themed décor. Yuletide trinkets, such as snow globes and ornaments, dotted around inside, will help to bring your Santa’s grotto to life. If you have a sofa inside your Studio, you could also go as far as swapping your usual cushion covers for red tartan ones and cover the back with a red throw.
Give Your Building A Festive Scent
If you really want to go all out and make your garden building feel truly Christmassy, you can give your building its own festive scent. Scents such as cinnamon or fresh pine can make a room feel cosier at Christmas while also igniting memories of Christmas past. You could choose to light candles, or if you have electrics in your building, you can buy a plug-in wax melt burner to fill your garden building with familiar fragrances without having an open flame.
Drape The Outside With Lights
Another way you can decorate your garden building for Christmas is with outdoor lights. You can easily hang a string of icicle lights across the front of your building with guttering hooks or adhesive clips. If you have a Pavilion Garden Room that features a veranda as part of its design, you can tightly entwine lights around the support posts instead of hanging them up. You may also want to use the porch area under your veranda to home light up Christmas figures, such as a pair of rattan reindeer or a jolly snowman.
Decorate The Front Door
While you’re decorating outside, you can also add some festive cheer to the front door of your building. A wreath made with seasonal greenery, pine cones and holly will give your building a traditional look, but if you would like to try something more modern, you can opt for a giant bow decoration that wraps around your door and is tied on the inside.
Our Studios and Garden Rooms are designed to be used in every season, not just at Christmas. They come with features such as internal lining, insulation, and double glazing, so you can use them to host garden parties in the summer and family gatherings at Easter. These features will also enable you to use your building throughout the year as a garden office, extended living area and relaxation space.
