Did the holiday season sneak up on you when you weren’t looking? Don’t worry, you’re not alone. When we’re all busy with kids, jobs, and everything else that has to happen at this time of year, it’s not surprising that some decorating jobs get put off until the last minute.
Here’s some tips from your Sudbury deck contractors to help you boost your home’s festive feel in a hurry.
Go Green: Nothing says Christmas like a Christmas tree. Try to choose a tree that’s right-sized for your deck – for most families, that’s between 4 – 6 feet. If you’ve had your deck designer incorporate planters into your deck, use one to hold live evergreen shrubs. They’re commonly available at most home and garden centers. Dressed with lights for the holidays they look great – let them go au natural for an elegant look all year round.
Bright Lights = Big Cheer: You don’t have to be Clark Griswald to appreciate a holiday light display. Keep things simple but effective with a mono-color display – white is the most popular option – or take a more colorful approach. The key to decorating with lights quickly is being strategic – if you only have time to hang a few strands, frame your doorway for an impressive look. Have a little more time? String lights along your deck railing – just keep any banisters or handrails free from obstruction. A safe holiday is a happy holiday.
Make it Minimalist: If you’re really strapped for time, this is the year to embrace the Minimalist decor trend. Choose one big festive element – a large wreath for your door, or bows positioned strategically around your deck rail – and have that be your deck decor for the season.
