How to get your home ready for Christmas
The last few years have been filled with uncertainty, but it is time to invite friends and family into our homes again! For many, Christmas is all about spending time with your loved ones and making sure they have the best stay in your home possible. Here at Yorkshire Fabric Shop we understand the stress of Christmas and therefore have compiled a list of tips and tricks to get you ready for the busy Christmas period!
Re-dress your windows!
When was the last time you changed your blinds or curtains? We often forget about our windows when it comes to Christmas decorating but re-dressing your windows can make such a big difference to your interior, creating a space that feels like new.
An affordable way of updating your window dressings is to make them yourself! We have an extensive range of fabrics on our website that can be used to create beautiful curtains and blinds. Simply visit our fabric finder on the website and under the ‘Purpose’ drop down, select Curtain fabrics.
Not sure how to make your own curtains or blinds? Don’t worry we have you covered. Here are a couple of guides on our website to give you a helping hand.
Plan Christmas activities!
Once the present opening has finished and we are filled to the brim with Christmas turkey, there is nothing worse than hearing the words ‘what should we do now?’
Prepare early! We can’t stress this enough! Dust off the old board games and pick out a few festive movies ready for the kids. Your guests will admire the preparation and you will be the host with the most!
Treat your guests to comfortable seating and cushions!
Have you ever been to a gathering and had to perch on a windowsill or stand in the corner of the room? The times of uncomfortable gatherings are over and it’s time to re-vamp that old seating!
Yorkshire Fabric Shop has one of the widest selections of fabrics in the UK with over 5000 fabrics regularly stocked. Whether you are more of a minimalist or love a bright pattern, our wide range of fabrics can enhance any interior (and did we mention all our fabrics are perfect for chair, sofa and cushion upholstery)!
However, we know DIY isn’t for everyone, so why not let us do the hard work! We also offer cushions in all our fabrics. Hand-made to order, enhancing your interior this winter has never been easier! Simply select your fabric and size of cushion on our website and leave the rest to us.
Create the ultimate guest bedroom.
Thanks to the pandemic most guest bedrooms haven’t seen visitors for some time so maybe it’s time for a refresh?
Give your guests a private space in which they can unwind and relax with a carefully considered space. A perfect way to enhance a bedroom with minimal effort is with a new headboard! But you don’t need to spend hundreds of pounds on a new one when you can simply reupholster your old one, just like our client did.
Using our Irania Soft Chenille Fabric in Cream Shade our lovely client has created a clean and uplifted space that is perfect for a visitor this winter.
We know some of you without pets will be worrying about the extra family members arriving in December! No fret, make sure they are comfortable with a comfy bed made from our CTR-66 fabric. This fabric has been very popular with our furry friends, check out one of our clients' recent pet bed creations here!
Have plenty of food and drink!
Who doesn’t love cake? Opt for cupcakes, they are hand-sized and don’t require any fussing with a knife!
Whether you like a tipple or are the designated driver for the day, a large selection of alcoholic drinks and soft drinks are a must (it is Christmas after all)! We know times are tough at the minute so a little tip for you all – start purchasing your long-life products now. Use your weekly shop to slowly add to your Christmas stock, this will not only make you less stressed when Tesco is bursting at the seams on Christmas Eve but will also help to relieve the bank closer to the big day!
