Whether you want to buy a readymade garland or make your very own decorations this year, we’ve got lots of gorgeous Christmas stair styling decor ideas just for you.

Make a grand powerful entrance

Make a stunning statement in the hallway with a fresh flower-and-foliage garland. Choose flowers to match your theme and even get some cinnamon sticks to add some nice winter smells. If you like to decorate early and are worried about the fresh flowers all you need do is remove the blooms as they begin to fade and replace them with new ones.

Entwine fresh ivy with simple paper stars

Keep your Christmas stair decor ideas simple. Let beautiful architectural balustrades be the centre of attention by delicately threading long lengths of ivy into them, finishing off with the addition of some simple paper-based stars.

Dress a bannister with colourful blooms

Decorate your stairwell full of Christmas cheer this year, with a serious ‘more-is-more’ attitude! ‘Seriously spruced stairwell décor is one of the hottest trends this Christmas, offering festive impact without costing too much.

Recreate the look of the moment with a base layer of green garland, layered up with an abundance of dried hydrangea heads, sprayed metallic and jewel-coloured foliage, finished with a dusting of micro-LED fairy lights. This high-quality look works perfectly in a hallway setting, totally transforming your staircase this Christmas.

Match your decorations to your décor

Co-ordinate your Christmas staircase decorations with the rest of your hallway, choosing shades of sage green for baubles and gift wrap and adding pops of brighter greens in ribbons and tealight holders. Wooden decorations make for a beautiful natural finish for your tree. Ensure you match the colour to that of your Christmas living room decor ideas to create a seamless flow of festive colour throughout.

Wrap balustrades up with seasonal ribbons

Get creative with your Christmas hallway decorating idea by tying lengths of ribbons around individual spindles. This simple but very impactful idea creates a perfectly festive staircase. Continue the neutral scheme by adding natural elements and foraged finds such as pinecones, branches or even dried fruit.

Create a seasonal scent surprise

Elevate treads and risers this year by adding a small scented potted plant on every step, surrounded by a cluster of shatterproof baubles. A small blob of white tack keeps the baubles in place, to save them from becoming a trip hazard on the stairs.
