Christmas Staircase Decor Inspiration
One of the best parts of Christmas is decorating the home and giving it a festive feel. From Christmas trees and flashing lights, to tinsel and garlands there are so many ways to transform your home into a cosy winter wonderland. If you like to go all out for Christmas and decorate the entire home, or if your short for space, then take advantage of the staircase as this can be the perfect place to decorate and make a statement entrance in your home. We’ve got some great ideas for Christmas staircase decor to share with you.
How to dress your staircase for Christmas
A simple and elegant way to dress the staircase is by draping a traditional Christmas garland along the banister. This instantly gives a festive feel and looks particularly beautiful with earthy, wooden banisters as seen above. Twist the garlands around the banister with care or drape it along the balustrades in a swag style. You can be as creative as you like and make the garland your own by adding your own accessories such as bows, ribbons, fragrant berries and pine, and twinkling lights.
Hanging baubles and stockings
Baubles aren’t just for the tree, you can use them in other parts of the home and create original, handmade decorations. One way of incorporating them onto the staircase is by attaching them to pieces of ribbon and draping them in between the balustrades. If you have spare baubles this is a great way of making use of them and they look beautiful hanging from a staircase.
Alternatively, try inserting glitter or twinkling lights, or even Christmas figurines, into clear baubles. Whether they’re combined with a garland or displayed alone they’re a standout feature on any staircase.
Stockings can also be hung from the staircase as well as the mantlepiece. Attach them all along the balustrades and fill them with extra presents!
Line the stairs with lights and ornaments
The steps of a staircase can also be used to display Christmas decorations but take care with this and ensure they’re not a trip hazard. Line the steps with Christmas figurines, lights or stacked presents. Lights look particularly beautiful along the stairs in the form of fake candles, fairy lights in jars or you can even display light up letters to spell out a Christmas word.
Add a finishing touch to the end of the banister
You can use every part of the staircase when it comes to Christmas decor, and the end of the banister is no exception. Whether it’s a bow, wreath, stocking or a handmade Christmas piece it can be attached to this area as the centrepiece or showstopper of your Christmas staircase decor.
