Choosing the Perfect Christmas tree

Buying a new Christmas tree for your home is a great occasion. Christmas trees transform homes and help to start the magic of the Christmas countdown. It can be challenging to select a Christmas tree for your home; you need to think about the space you have, whether you want a real or artificial tree and the colour and decoration of the tree. Each of these factors will influence your decision. This article will help you decide on the right tree for your home.
Real or artificial
The first choice you need to make is between a real tree and an artificial tree. Each has benefits, and people tend to stick with the same option each year. Those who love real trees enjoy real Christmas tree smell, look and sustainability. As long as you buy a real tree from a good source, they are more sustainable than plastic Christmas trees. Artificial trees are often made from plastic that ends up at landfill sites. You can even buy Christmas trees that are replanted once they’ve been used for the holiday period. Artificial trees can be used for many years; if you plan on buying an artificial tree, opt for something that you will use for at least 5-10 years; buying a new artificial tree every year is very bad for the environment. People also prefer artificial trees because they’re less messy. Unlike real trees, they don’t deposit pines all over your floors, and they’re more uniform shapes; plus, you can buy ones with lights and decorations already on the tree. There are certainly more options when it comes to buying an artificial tree, including white, black and multi-coloured trees.
Space available
Before you go out and buy your new artificial or real Christmas tree, you should measure the space you have available. If you buy a tree that’s too large, you might find you have issues moving around the tree and decorations constantly falling off when someone tries to get past. If you buy a tree that's too small, it might feel lost in the space you have and won't make your home feel adequately decorated for Christmas. It's essential to get your measurements right. Measure the height, width and depth of the area you want to fill and keep these measurements on hand when you come to do your Christmas tree shopping. If you have space for two or three , make sure you measure each space individually.
Christmas tree colour
The classic Christmas tree is green in colour and might have some white snow embellishment if it's an artificial tree. However, many people are now opting to buy Christmas trees in white, red, blue and black. There are also different shades of green you can choose from when it comes to both artificial and real Christmas trees. Take the time to shop around and look at all of the different varieties of Christmas trees before choosing one to go into your home. If you want to spend a bit more on a real Christmas tree that doesn’t drop as many pines in your home, several species of tree have been grown for this purpose. When looking at trees of different colours, try to think about the decorations and the lights to go on the tree. It is much easier to decorate a green tree; they also tend to look more classic. Specific coloured artificial trees go in and out of style; if you’re unsure, opt for a classic green tree that you can use for many years to come. If you love the idea of buying a black, white or red artificial tree but are not completely sold or unsure if it goes with your decor, you could buy a mini-coloured tree to sit on your windowsill or another area in your home.
Christmas trees are a fun way to decorate your home for the festive season; when you’re buying a new Christmas tree, get the whole family involved, it can be a great Christmas-themed fun day out. Alternatively, if you want to save some money, you could purchase a Christmas tree out of season. January is a good time to buy artificial Christmas trees at discounted prices.
