With the festive season fast approaching, you may be thinking of ways to get your home ready for all the social gatherings and parties. Well, not to worry, we've got some top tips on how you can really turn your home into a cosy, inviting retreat throughout the festivities this year.
Ample amounts of space around the dining table
If you're planning to host your friends and family over the festive period, food is going to be of utmost importance. With the dining table being in demand, the last thing you would want is to be rummaging around making space for all your guests.
Having an extending dining table might just be what you need. Easy to use, an extending dining table will give you the option to amplify your table space discreetly depending on your party size. Let the table be the centre of attention with a contemporary design like our Maru Extending Dining Table which lets you seat up to 8 people and makes a stylish statement at the same time thanks to its fluted design.
Make a colourful statement and add some warmth
With temperatures dropping outside, why not add some warmth to your room by adding a pop of colour. Whether its chairs around the dining table, an accent chair in your bedroom or lounge or a colourful sofa, the addition of warm colours will really give a feeling of opulence and cosiness.

Rich colours like orange and green paired with cosy textures like boucle and velvet will really compel you to stay in the warm indoors as well as help create the perfect festive statement.

Sofa by day, bed by night
Got guests staying over but stuck on how to make space? Adding a sofa bed to your home is the perfect functional solution. During the day use it as a comfy corner whilst watching a Christmas film or playing a board game and in the evening switch it to bed mode and ensure your guests have a great night's sleep.
Our Hanney Chesterfield Sofa comes in both a 3-seater sofa bed as well as a chaise version, allowing you to really maximise your space. Or if you're looking for a functional piece in your spare room, our new Solna Sofa bed gives you the best of both words without taking up a lot of space!
Add some sparkling accessories
Create memories and take some selfies in front of a shiny full-length mirror. Perfect for that final outfit check and touch-ups, having a full-length mirror will add some sparkle to your home and also attract the crowd!

Whether you're after something minimalist like our Dina Arched Mirror in Gold or fancy making a wavey statement with our Venus Full Length Wave Mirror, having a mirror will most definitely add some sparkle!
Don't forget about the drinks
After a long day of celebrations, the last thing you want to do is to constantly get up for a drink. Make sure your drinks take centre stage with a stylish drinks cabinet like our Frances Woven Rattan Drinks Cabinet. One to seamlessly blend into any interior, the Frances Drinks Cabinet will keep your drinks in prime position throughout your party.
Why not pair it with a drinks trolley? Keep your drinks close at hand with a portable drinks trolley like our Clementine Brass Effect Drinks Trolley. With three tiers and in a stylish brass effect finish, having a drinks trolley will add to the festive vibe!
