As the festive season approaches, there's no better way to set the holiday mood than by selecting the perfect Christmas Tree for your home. Take a look at our Christmas Tree Guide and we'll walk you through the art of choosing the right size, style, and colour for your tree, explain why artificial trees are a fantastic choice, and provide tips on selecting the ideal Christmas Tree decorations to make your tree truly spectacular.
Selecting the Perfect Size
Consider Your Space: Before you embark on your Christmas Tree adventure, measure the space where your tree will be displayed. Be sure to account for any ceiling height restrictions and other furniture in the area. A tree that fits your space comfortably will create a harmonious atmosphere, we sell a choice of 3ft trees, 4ft trees, 5ft trees, 6ft trees, 7ft trees and 8ft trees.
Proportions Matter: The ideal tree size varies depending on the room's dimensions. A general rule of thumb is to have a tree that's at least one foot shorter than your ceiling's height, leaving room for a tree topper. Make sure it's the right height and don't forget width. Shop our range of mini christmas trees, slim christmas trees and thick & full christmas trees.
Think About Decorations: If you love to adorn your tree with an abundance of ornaments and decorations, opt for a taller tree. A fuller tree allows you to showcase your festive creativity.
Choosing the Perfect Style and Colour
Traditional Trees, Snowy Trees or Contemporary Trees? Consider your personal style and home decor. Classic Green Trees are timeless and blend well with traditional settings, while White Trees or LED Twig Trees can complement modern, minimalist interiors.
Flocked or Unflocked? Flocked trees offer a snowy, winter wonderland feel, while unflocked trees exude natural charm. Your choice depends on the ambiance you want to create.
Pre-Lit Trees or Unlit Trees? Pre-lit trees save time on stringing lights and provide a uniform glow. Opt for Warm White or Multicoloured Lights based on your preferred holiday aesthetic. Decide on your style of String Lights, Cluster Lights, Compact Lights, Icicle Lights and Battery Lights. If you need extra help deciding how many lights you need, take a look at our Christmas Lights Guide.
Why Choose Artificial Over Real Trees?
Eco-Friendly Option: Artificial trees are a sustainable choice. They can be reused for many years, reducing the demand for chopping down live trees annually.
Less Mess and Maintenance: Artificial trees don't shed needles, ensuring a tidy living space throughout the holiday season. They also eliminate the need for constant watering.
Cost-Effective: Over time, investing in a high-quality artificial tree can save you money compared to buying a fresh tree each year.
Selecting the Perfect Decorations
Theme and Colour Scheme: Decide on a theme for your Christmas Tree, whether it's traditional, rustic, glam, or something entirely unique. Choose decorations that match your chosen theme and colour scheme to create a cohesive look.
Ornaments and Baubles: Consider using a mix of ornaments, including traditional glass baubles, sentimental family heirlooms, and handmade crafts. These elements add character and charm to your tree.
