Holiday Decorating Throughout the Home

Most of our holiday decorating is usually centered around the main living areas of our home.  Usually the living room and family rooms are the first areas to be decorated, and the many other rooms of the house often times go forgotten.  Today, however, many homeowners are decorating other rooms of their home, in addition to the living room.  Here are a few ideas to help you get started decorating some other rooms of your home:

Kitchen:
While most people don't have a lot of wall space in their kitchens due to cabinets and windows, there are certain things that can add a festive touch to this area of the house.  If you have an open area above your cabinets, this might be a perfect spot for that Victorian sleigh and Santa Claus that you want to put out, but don't want the children to play with.  A beautiful holiday plate or bowl on a clear plastic plate stand would really dress up the back corner of the counter top, along with a coordinating holiday cookie jar.  Trading out your normal kitchen towels and rugs for ones that coordinate with the rest of your holiday decorations as well as your table linens gives a unified look.

Four Season Porch or Sun Room:
A sun room or porch is the perfect place for a lighted tree at night because all the windows make it very visible to the surrounding area.  This is also the perfect place to get a little whimsical with your decorations, too.  The children will love a bright tree and funky decorations.  Perhaps you would prefer a country or historical décor in this room.  Popcorn and cranberries strung on a green tree are a sensory pleasure.  Whichever you choose, be sure to add all the small touches you like, this is an area where adding more clutter just makes the end result look better.
