Three affordable kits for decorating home at Christmas

Whether you want to decorate your home in a Christmas style without going over the top, or want to give someone a gift to enjoy over the festive period, these three simple and affordable decoration kits are an absolute must.

Christmas is fast approaching and, although this year may be somewhat different, we're still ready to celebrate. If you have no idea how to decorate your home a little, don't worry, we've come up with three very affordable ideas with different objects designed for various spaces in your home.

Fill your home with a little Christmas cheer in no time and create a magical ambiance inside your home this Christmas.

Christmas kit no. 1: a few basics to dress the table for Christmas

One of the highlights of Christmas, perhaps even the biggest, is sitting down for lunch or dinner. Who doesn't enjoy a good spread in the company of family or friends? And this festivity, besides being a feast, gives us some great moments to share around the table.

Are you inviting someone to dine at your home for the first time and you don't have any festive decor? If you want to lay a simple, beautiful Christmas table that doesn't cost the world, this Christmas home decorating kit is made for you. As they are basic accessories, you can keep using them once Christmas is over.

The main colour will be winter white. As a base, we suggest a Christmas tablecloth in this shade with gold patterns, another favourite colour of this festive period. Made from cotton, not only is it beautiful, this tablecloth is 100% renewable and comes from more sustainable sources, as at IKEA, all cotton is recycled or grown with less water and pesticides.

This kit also features cutlery. As promised, it is very simple and affordable. So using it for a more special occasion or for your everyday needs will be no problem at all. And for tableware, there's nothing like showcasing food on white dishes and plates to make the colours truly steal the show.

If you'd like to add an extra touch to the table, you can add some decorative elements, such as golden candles to match the tablecloth's patterns, or a runner or Christmas centrepiece made from foliage and LED string lights. You can even create place cards with the names of each diner to let everyone know where they're sitting.

This is our suggestion, but remember that there are plenty of combinations to lay a spectacular table over the Christmas period. In fact, the following video gives you some more ideas for decorating the table at Christmas.

    Christmas kit no. 2: how to put up a Christmas tree anywhere

    Our suggested Christmas decoration kits wouldn't be complete without a kit for a basic, equally fetching Christmas tree. And you don't need tons of space to enjoy a traditional Christmas tree. See what you think of this latest set.

    First, of course, we need our green canvas. This kit therefore consists of an artificial plant that resembles a small 12-cm fir. We think this is the perfect size for virtually any corner of your home, whether on the floor or on top of a piece of furniture. One thing we love about this little tree is that it is a recyclable product and free from bisphenol A, so it is safer for your health and, after a long and happy life in your home, it can be reused and transformed into something new.

    To decorate the tree, there's nothing better than some colourful Christmas baubles and, as a finishing touch, warm string lights to give it that magical sparkle we all love so much. Remember to put something at the base of the tree to make it even more beautiful, like a little bit of wrapping paper, a tree skirt you like or a nice pot.

    Christmas kit no. 3: a Christmas decoration in every room

    With Christmas around the corner, we can take this opportunity to add a festive-yet-understated touch to various rooms in our homes beyond just the living room. Enter our third suggestion, designed to serve us both at Christmas and throughout winter, and even in the autumn too.

    We have brought the Christmas spirit into the bedroom with this beautiful set of duvet covers and pillows. We don't always have to use typical Christmas prints for that festive touch; we can combine other elements that are a little more understated like, in this case, nature. What do you think of these floral patterns?

    As the second element of this kit, we thought decorations for the bathroom. And what could be an easier, more affordable way to decorate your bathroom than with a simple change of towels? Let us give your bathroom a different feel thanks to a colour as festive and vibrant as red.

    Ready! Choose one of these three kits for decorating your home this Christmas with no hassle and without breaking the bank. If you'd like to see even more options, be sure to check out these ideas:
