Tips for Decorating Christmas Staircase

●   Pick a Color Scheme

You don’t have to conform to the traditional green and red color scheme when decorating for Christmas. Consider picking a color scheme that suits your home style, without necessarily matching your existing interior.

Some stunning and elegant Christmas color schemes are:

1. Green + Red + Gold

2. White + Gold + Blue

3. Blue + Silver + Gold

4. Green + White + Silver+ Gold

5. Blue+ Green + Copper

6. Green + Red

7. White + Gold

8. Blue + White

9. Green + White + Gold

10. White + Burgundy

 

●  Be Creative

To be creative is to think outside the box. Do something unexpected and visually appealing as this will make your Christmas decor stand out.

There is a wide array of Christmas DIYs, and arts and crafts to explore.

Not only is this fun to do but it might save you money as well.

Take inspiration from this post and other sources online but consider adding your unique twist to it.

●  Use Ribbons

Nothing surpasses the classic look of silk ribbons for adding an extra touch of elegance and charm to any occasion.

A silk red ribbon is a festive staple that can instantly elevate a minimalist green garland on the banister.

Ribbons can also be used to create unique and eye-catching dynamics on Christmas trees, wreaths, mantles, and others.

●  Light Up the Stairway

Twinkling Christmas lights can make your stairway decor more aesthetically pleasing. It also infuses warmth and festive ambiance into a space.

Using lights for your Christmas stairway decor can dramatically up the wow factor in the space.

If you have no power source nearby that it can be plugged into, consider investing in battery-powered Christmas lights.

●  Keep It Simple

Keep your decorating simple and elegant. Combining too many colors and using too many decorations in the stairway will only create a chaotic and unsightly look.

This also applies to the rest of your home. Minimalism is the key note of modern elegance and it will also save you money and valuable time.

●  Secure the Decorations

Use the appropriate adhesive, wire, or hanger for your Christmas staircase decor.

Make sure to use any stakes or cords that come with your decorations.

For sentimental and delicate ornaments, secure them properly during installation to prevent any damage.
