Get creative with the windowsill behind
A great way to use your shutters this Christmas is to utilise any windowsill behind and have novelty items peeking through the slats when panels are closed. Whether it is a light up Santa, a cute little reindeer or a Christmas poinsettia, extending the room decorations to behind your shutters pushes the Christmas spirit into every corner of the room.
Use the shutters to reveal a Christmas countdown
Fixed furniture and the walls of your rooms aren’t the only way to fill the room with Christmas joy – why not use your windows as part of your Christmas decorations? A fun idea for family homes is to decorate the windows and on the countdown to Christmas reveal a different window decoration each day. Whether you scribe a message left by Santa, incorporate the windows and drawings in any elf on the shelf activities you might be doing or even change the countdown number each day, use your shutters for a big reveal when the panels are opened up. There are plenty of options available from major high street stores for decorating the windows directly to have a bit of fun either on the countdown to Christmas or even throughout the Christmas period.
Use the shutters as holders for the decorations
An option to Christmas-ify your shutters is to decorate them directly by hanging items off and giving them that extra bit of Christmas spirit. Whether it is hanging a unique bauble from the tilt rod or tactfully placing some holly or mistletoe around the shutter, it is a fun way to experiment with some Christmas design options. If decorating your shutters directly then be mindful of taking great care of your shutters and the finish on them, avoid using objects that could cause some damage to your fabulous shutters.
