Christmas decorating can be a chore or a real pleasure depending on your outlook of the holidays. For those of us that enjoying taking decorating to the extreme and are always looking for new places to decorate and Christmas decorating idea, the bedroom might be the perfect place to start. If you are thinking about trying some bedroom decorating ideas for Christmas, here are a few tips on ways to decorate and bedroom spots to consider.
Stockings – Stockings are a great way of adding a little holiday atmosphere to your bedroom. Consider hanging stockings on the wall behind the bed or on the headboard or bedposts themselves. This can bring a touch of Christmas décor to the room and when you awake Christmas morning you won’t even have to leave the comfort of your bed to discover what treats await you in your stocking.
Bed décor – Use your bed as the centerpiece for your bedroom Christmas decorating ideas. You can decorate the bed itself with Christmas themed or colored bedspreads, bed skirts, blankets, pillows, pillowcases, and similar bedding. Otherwise, consider hanging a Christmas picture over the headboard or wrapping the bedposts in Christmas lights — just be careful not to trip on the cord in the dark at night or kick the bulbs somehow while you’re sleeping.
Electric fireplace – An electric fireplace can be a great way to bring the warmth of the holiday season into your bedroom. Easily transportable, safe, energy efficient, and warm, these handy heaters can add atmosphere and charm to your bedroom. Christmas is the perfect time for cozying in under the covers and watching a fire, and what better spot to do so than from the comfort of your own bed?
Dresser design – Dressers can play another significant role in your bedroom decorating ideas for Christmas. You can stack decorative gift boxes on top of them, hang stockings from the handles, and place scented potpourri inside the drawers so that when you open them you get a waft of holiday smell. Just be aware that the potpourri might also scent whatever clothing is inside the drawer as well, which can be a good or bad thing depending on the clothing and the strength of the potpourri’s scent.
Utilize your ceiling fan – Unless you are planning to use your ceiling fan this holiday season; it can be a great place on which to hang Christmas decorations. Tinsel, stockings, bows, and other ornaments can be affixed to chains or fan blades. Better yet, find some colored light bulbs and replace the bulbs in your fan’s light fixture to set the Christmas mood.
