35 Ingenious Christmas Decor Ideas You Should Know

They are the must of the must. What fills the stores and what you have to have at home this year while you wait for the Three Kings. It’s coming, it’s almost here. Christmas is approaching and with the November premiere many of us are already thinking about how we are going to decorate the house this Christmas. Although we keep many ornaments from one year to the next, you can always use them to make new compositions and renew some ornaments.

  • Christmas in the living room. It is the center of meetings, game afternoons, and evenings in front of the fireplace. And it is surely where almost all of us place the Christmas tree, the Bethlehem portal and where we are going to put the gifts of Santa Claus and the Three Wise Men.
  • Kitchen room. It is the one that will suffer the most (in a good way, of course). We are heating engines and ovens, because Christmasis when we spend more time in the kitchen compared to the rest of the year. And it is that preparing the menus for the dates indicated takes time. Christmas appetizers for occasional get-togethers, fancy recipes and traditional desserts. But it also deserves that you decorate it with a Christmas reason.
  • In the bedroom, the best way to decorate without overloading and without turning the rest room into an uncomfortable space full of “bright ornaments“, is to resort to simple floral compositions and ornamental centers. You will give a festive touch in a simple way, as the photo shows, if you place on the table small vases with a bouquet of flowers, birch leaves, eucalyptus … These plants will also aromatize the room.
  • And even the bathroom! Why not? There are shower curtains with Christmas motifs and you can always change the typical scented candles for Christmas shaped candles, the perfect 2×1 for the guest toilet.
