The living room is probably the most important room you will decorate for Christmas, as it’s where you and your family will spend time during this joyful holiday! You can decorate just about every nook and cranny in the living room. Pay special attention to the mantel and Christmas tree itself. These will be central points of focus in your living room during the holidays. A few ideas for decorating the living room for Christmas are:
- Go for a flocked Christmas tree this year
- Hang evergreen wreaths in your living room windows

- Drape an evergreen garland on your mantel
- Hang stockings on the chimney
- Christmas throw pillows are a must!
- Add a cozy winter throw blanket to the sofa

When it comes to Christmas kitchen decorating, don’t be afraid to go modern (above) or traditional (below) depending on your tastes! A simple string of lights around the kitchen window can go a long way in adding some festive cheer to your kitchen. Or opt for a traditional red plaid Christmas decor theme and go all out!
Of course, there are many more ways to decorate your kitchen for Christmas. Here are a few ideas to spark your imagination and creativity:

The entryway is the first room your guests will see as they enter your home for Christmas. That’s why we had to include it in our Christmas home decor guide for you this year! Just because it’s a pass-through space doesn’t mean it doesn’t deserve a little Christmas cheer. There are lots of ways to decorate your entryway for Christmas. Here are a few of our favorites!
- Hang a wreath on your front door
- Hang a red scarf on one of your coat hooks
- Add a mini Christmas tree
