Best Winter Weekend Decorating Ideas
Build And Decorate A Fireplace
If you have always wanted a beautiful fireplace, but just didn’t really get down to getting it done, this winter weekend is the perfect time to do up your fireplace. Traditional fireplaces can get very boring, so decorate your existing one with some wall murals of reindeers around it. Sounds exciting, doesn’t it? Place a sheep skin rug in front of it and drink champagne watching the flickering flames during the weekend. If you are worried about your children’s safety, an electric fireplace can also be used.
Get Some Colourful Wall Paper
Winters can be really cold and dreary, and your stark walls can make you feel even more depressed. So, use this winter weekend to brighten up your walls in an easy and inexpensive way by dressing them up in colourful wallpapers. Have fun choosing the designs from among thousands of designs. You will be amazed at what a wallpaper can do to transform the look of your home completely.
Dress Up Your Windows
Cold winter air can easily enter your home through the glass windows and doors. Remove the sheer curtains and dress up your windows in thick, beautifully designed curtains which will help prevent heat from escaping. Use your winter weekend to decorate your home with thick curtains in colors that go with the theme of each room.
