Christmas decorations will transform your home into a Christmas wonderland if done properly. And you don’t need to spend a fortune. All you need is some thought and planning. Christmas decorations, if used correctly indoors and outdoors, can turn your Christmas experience from great to awesome. Here are some tips that my wife and I have used to great effect…

First, you need always to be aware of the dangers that decorations and ornaments pose at Christmas time. How often have we heard or read about fires being caused by decorations catching fire? Too many, that’s for sure. So be vigilant.

Never, ever place Christmas decorations, or ornaments, near a fire, flame or any other source of heat. And that goes for your Christmas tree as well. You have to make sure that curtains or drapes can’t touch or blow onto your tree. Christmas tree lights can get pretty hot and that can be enough to ignite those drapes. And never use real lighted candles on or near your tree.

Another very important item is the use of electrical ornaments and decorations outside in the yard. Always ensure that they state that they are suitable for outside use. And as with all electrical goods always read and follow the instructions.

When choosing what Christmas decorations you want always consider the look you want to achieve, and, if that ‘look’ is in keeping with your decor. Everything needs to be in balance. For instance, a room stuffed full of classical Victorian-style decorations and ornaments will just not look right if that room is modern minimalist, and vice-versa. Try to match classical rooms with classical ornaments, decorations and Christmas trees, and, modern decor with modern, lighter decorations and trees.
