Christmas is so close that you can already smell the fresh turkey and Christmas puddings! Families are at the ready and people are preparing to welcome their loved ones into their homes over the holiday period.
With the extra numbers under one roof it’s likely that you might need some additional furniture to ensure that everyone has a place at the table or a seat in front of the fire. Well, there are a number of innovative modern furniture designs that will be absolutely perfect for your Christmas celebrations and I will introduce you to them in the paragraphs below.
Coffee & side tables
As you are relaxing in front of the TV or blowing the cobwebs off the board games that the children oh so desperately want to play, a new coffee or side table would be absolutely perfect.
BoConcept have some fantastic modern designs that are oozing with creativity. They come in all shapes and sizes so you are bound to find one that meets your needs. Just don’t forget to have a coaster or two at the ready for people’s drinks!
Finding a place for everyone to sleep
If you have a few extra guests than you have beds, its time to start thinking about how you’ll find everyone a place to lay their heads down after stuffing their bellies full of mouthwatering turkey and all the trimmings.
The thing is, you don’t want to have to go out and invest £hundreds on sofa beds only to have them tucked away for the rest of the year. The perfect solution is to purchase a chair bed. Chair by day and bed by night!
You’ll kill two birds with one stone by having an extra place for a child to sleep at night but then being able to fold it up during the day so that there is an extra chair for an evening either in front of the television or playing charades with the family.
Chaos in the Kitchen
With food being one of the most important parts in the Christmas period, kitchen designs are imperative. Innovative styles are always entering the market and with the influence of technology, kitchen design software has become a new addition in the process.
With the daily workings over the Christmas period it’s important to have a design which is set up to the upmost convenience for you. Especially with young children wandering around, an efficient set up for the holiday season is highly recommended.
Comfy chairs for the children
There’s no two ways about it; children make Christmas. There is no better feeling than seeing the excitement on a child’s face as they fall asleep knowing that Santa Claus is about to pay there house a visit!
If you have children staying with you over Christmas, beanbags in the style of their favourite cartoon characters can provide the perfect setting for them to be able to sit down and tear through the endless amounts of rapping paper that await them.
Keeping everyone warm
It’s going to be cold over Christmas; you never know maybe we’ll have a ‘white Christmas.’ We aren’t all lucky enough to have an authentic log fire burning in the corner of our living rooms, so we’ll need to think a bit more creatively about heating our homes.
A perfect piece of modern technology that will keep you warm over Christmas is the Dyson hot and cool. It’s lightweight and will warm a room in a matter of minutes. However, if you like the idea of having a log fire despite living in an apartment or a building that doesn’t come with a chimney, the best way around it is to buy an electric fire that has a burning flame effect. These have been around for a number of years but more modern designs can truly provide that authentic log fire feel and are available from most major furnishing retailers.
There you have it! You should now be in a position to kit out your home with all the modern furnishings that you will need over the Christmas period. Now all you have to worry about is cooking the Turkey to perfection.
