Who doesn't love the festive season? One of the best things about Christmas is getting to blow the dust off the decorations in the loft and scatter joy around your home. So how to decorate your home this Christmas? Well if you have a property in St Helens on the market you'll need to plan your decor carefully.

When you're selling your home, staging is imperative, and Christmas decorations are no exception! However, they must be handled in the right way. The trick to decorating your property in St Helens when it's on the market is to keep things sophisticated, clean, and simple. There's nothing worse than scaring off a potential buyer with an overbearing amount of Christmas faff in the hallway!

Without being a bah-humbug this year, we've got six stylish Christmas decoration ideas for your St Helens home that won't compromise viewings.

1. The Ornaments Trick

Instead of ornaments on your shelves how about replacing them with presents? Choose a simple colour scheme (like silver, pale blue or gold) for your wrapping paper and display beautifully wrapped gifts.

2. Add Eucalyptus Accents

Fake or real – eucalyptus adds a splash of nature to St Helens homes at Christmas. Add a few accents to your bathroom, dining room table or living room to create a fresh and stylish look. You can even add some scents to your Christmas tree!

3. How to decorate your home this Christmas? Go Bold!

Just because it's Christmas, doesn't mean you have to stick to the traditional red, green and gold colour schemes! Be bold this year and do something different. If you are wondering how to decorate your home this Christmas, grey, pale blue and white, and even pale yellow colour schemes are popular choices for people selling their St Helens homes. Their neutral feel creates a bright yet festive atmosphere that looks stylish and won't deter buyers.

4. Be Rustic! Scatter Logs

Give your home a rustic feel this Christmas! If you have kiln-dried logs, pile them up at the base of your tree or in a basket near your fireplace (make sure it's positioned sufficiently far enough from the heat). The simplicity of firewood can make your St Helens home look really cosy and comfortable this Christmas and both you and potential buyers will appreciate it.

5. Create a Festive Bar

Just because you're selling your home at Christmas, that doesn't mean you can't enjoy a drink or two! Create a space you and your guests love by reserving an area for festive drinks. If there's a lonely looking cabinet in your living room or an area of your kitchen you don't use often, add a few sprigs of holly, some festive glasses and a few coffee (or alcoholic) syrups to create your own DIY bar.

6. Add Fresh Amaryllis

Fresh amaryllis is a growing trend! Chances are that your local supermarket packs the shelves with these luscious plants at Christmas time. So, it's easy to create a stylish look in your home this year, by choosing a vibrant red or crisp white flower. They'll look stunning throughout the festive season. Plus, they'll prove to buyers that there's enough natural light in your home to keep plants alive!
