Prepare for Christmas in your Wooden House

A wooden house offers a classic look that immediately gives you an attractive aesthetic but it becomes so much better during Christmas. Pour out your creative juices in preparing for Christmas and making your log home as beautiful and colourful as possible. However, you must also remember that wooden homes are not like your usual brick and mortar building that is not as prone to fire and similar mishaps. Decorate your log home to make it captivating but make sure that it is primarily safe and accident-free.


How to Prepare your Wooden House for Christmas

Your residential log cabin deserves the traditional yuletide look with all the conventional and modern aesthetics. However, there are important things you need to consider first before you go on ahead with the cosmetic value. The classic beauty and look of your wooden house is already a plus point but you can still spruce it up and make it so much better with all the joyful and sparkling themes.

Safety First Before Anything

The first thing you need to do is to ensure that your wooden house is safe and far from any accidents such as fire. Wood is quite susceptible to fire, especially if there are electrical short circuits that happen due to faulty wiring or overloading of Christmas lights and the likes. You can consult with experts in electrical wiring and related fields if you want to be 100% sure and you need total peace of mind while enjoying your Christmas decoration in full swing. There are online resources that offer tips and techniques for log house owners, helping them protect their home from fire and other accidents.


Decorating the Wooden House Exterior

A wooden house is a sight of perfection, particularly with Christmas decorations all in place. Show the Christmas cheers loud and clear from your log cabin exteriors as you decorate it with luxurious design schemes and bold colours. You can use white twinkle lights in decorating the eaves of the cabin but make sure that the lights are designed and rated for outdoor use.

Rustic and simple schemes may include decorating the windows with flameless candles that you can now find on the market. Flameless candles in mason jars are the best options because they not only offer aesthetic value but ensure the safety of your wooden house from fire accidents. You can add artificial berries to decorate plates and jars that have that country charm impact on your cabin exteriors. Give the front door a festive appeal with lit pine garlands, child-size sleigh, or poinsettia plants.

Sprucing Up your Entryway

Reinforce the wooden house Christmas spirit starting from the front door and adorn it with a balsam wreath and pine cones for a simple and rustic look. Ribbons, wreaths, and artificial berries bring out the country charm of your log home’s entryway while reflecting a lush theme. Entryways with a staircase would look extra special with velvet ribbons and garlands to the balustrade. The windows will absolutely look great when you adorn them with simple wreaths and accessories. A rosemary topiary and small pine tree could add a natural element to your plain entryway corner.


Beautifying your Living Area

The living area of your wooden house is the place where you welcome your guests and socialize with them during their visit. Make the living area a great place for you and your loved ones especially during Christmas and nothing could give that joyful spirit more than the traditional Christmas tree. The yuletide tree is the cornerstone of your decoration and it blends with the rustic walls of your cabin.

It depends on your preferences whatever accessories you embellish your Christmas tree with. You can use layers of garlands and ornaments to decorate the tree or go for homemade décors and simple burlap garlands for its overall impact. Decorate the exposed ceiling beams or you can have a tall tree that touches the beams for that dramatic and classic look.

Hang traditional Christmas stockings on the fireplace but you can always use the plain walls if you do not have any. The exposed pegs in the wooden house walls are the ideal spot where you can also hang your stockings in order to keep them from catching fire.


Important Tips on Christmas Lighting

Christmas lights are great accessories for your wooden house, making it glitter and stand out during the yuletide season. Enjoy the flickering lights without any fear of fire accidents if you choose the lights that comply with stringent safety standards. Faulty electrical wirings, as well as defective lights, are the common perpetrators of fire accidents. Avoid the risks of accidents that could destroy your Christmas and log cabin in general through using high-quality lights with safety standard compliance.

Yuletide Curtains and Drapes

Make your wooden house exude an elegant and more stylish look with ravishing red drapes and curtains. Match the holidays with the colour of the season or you can experiment with popular shades for Christmas such as red, gold, and green. The rustic windows of your log home will come to life with those captivating drapes and curtains that could also block the freezing cold from the outside. Add other elements with the same colourful accents on the ready-made wreaths, log mantels, and garlands for the windows and trimmings.


Dinnerware and Crockery

A wooden house is the epitome of country living and the rustic lifestyle is not complete without the classic crockery and dinnerware. Add a more relevant hint to your dinnerware through using Christmas-themed items for your dinner parties and get-togethers. Incorporate a coherent design theme and approach that includes your glassware, dinnerware, crockery, and everything in between.

Make your Christmas celebration in your wooden house more festive and colourful with the best ways to prepare for the holidays. Your log home is a unique one with a natural backdrop already within your reach.
