Give your staircase a festive makeover just in time for New Year’s Eve

Winter comes with lots of snow and cold weather but it also brings joy along with Christmas and New Year’s Eve. It’s a fun period of the year when we get to decorate our homes and give them a festive makeover. As part of the preparations for both Christmas and New Year’s Eve, you must pay attention to all the little details. The staircase is an important part of any home so make it look special.

In order to preserve the holiday spirit that came with Christmas, you can hang stockings on the stair railing. It’s a very idea for families with children but not only. You can also add pine branches for some color contrast. Another idea would be to use Christmas ornaments or ribbons. Use one color or more and tie the ribbons in a lush bow, letting it fall freely. If you prefer something a little more cheerful and fun, you can also small toys or light garlands.

A few other alternatives would be to use berries, either real or artificial, to create an eco-style décor for your staircase. You can also add mistletoe or several small wreaths made with Christmas tree branches. You can use the branches to make garlands. There are lots of ideas to choose from. Whether you opt for something handmade or for something simple that you can buy in a store, it’s important to have fun decorating your home.
