Decorating Your Home For The Holidays 

No matter if you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, or any other Winter Holiday, December is the season to brighten up your home with holiday décor and decorations. From gingerbread baking in the oven to stockings hung over the fireplace- we’ve put together 8 easy ways to bring the holiday season into your Westbow Home.

1. Add a holiday wreath to your front door.

Adding a wreath to your front door is a great and simple way to bring the spirit of the holiday to your home. Local makers offers various styles of wreaths or you can create something yourself using local greenery.

2. Decorate your Christmas tree 

There are many options when it comes to your Christmas tree. There has been a long debate between whether a fake or real tree is better, but there are now more options than ever! Second hand artificial trees provide a lower cost option while those looking for an eco friendly option may opt for a returnable Christmas tree.

3. Fill your holiday mugs with homemade hot chocolate, apple cider, or mulled wine

As the weather gets colder outside, filling your mug with a warm cozy drink will help warm your body and soul. 

4. Bring festivity into your bathroom

Simple pieces of décor such as candles, a locally made sign, and some holiday themed hand towels are a great and easy way to bring the holidays into your bathrooms.

5. Light up your neighbourhood

Christmas lights provide a bright and cheery neighbourhood atmosphere. From traditional string lights to modern projectable lights, the variety in options are endless

6. Spend time baking holiday cookies

Your Westbow kitchen is perfect for spending time with your family, baking holiday cookies. There are many holiday cookies to choose from!  Gingerbread, sugar cookies, and shortbread are just a few of our favourites.

7. Relax in your loft and enjoy a holiday movie

Many Westbow homes have bonus rooms or lofts which make for excellent places to curl up and enjoy a holiday movie.


8. Spend time with your family and friends.

As the holidays draw closer, families and friends gather to celebrate the season. Westbow homes are built for hosting parties, get togethers, and dinners. Spacious, open concept kitchen’s and living rooms  ensure there are no separation between the guests and the hosts.

Rachael Seemann: My Fiance and I are looking to buy our first home, however, we are also looking at the option of building a home. From what we've seen from different building companies, they have 5 or 6 layouts, and then they build multiples of those layouts. I am personally a fan of the classic home with a big, grandeur entrance and a gorgeous staircase that greets you when you walk in the door, and that have the "private" part of the house separate from where you would entertain guests (i.e. bedrooms upstairs and kitchen, dining, and living room downstairs). But there doesn't seem to be any builders who have these layouts anymore, lots of houses seem to be small, cluttered and don't leave much of an option for a functional basement. What, in your opinion, is the best and most affordable way to work with a building company to build your unique dream home without having to go with one of their already used layouts? 


A: At Decora we believe that when you are building your dream home whether its your first home or your retirement home that you should be building a home which best suites your lifestyle and personality. We do have many plans that we have built for our wonderful clients which a person could choose from or make minor changes to or design a custom plan with your own ideas. We work directly side by side with our clients and the draftsman while designing the dream home. At Decora designing your own home from scratch does not incur any more costs then if we were to use an existing plan. 


Annalee Bruce McSharkbite: With the trends always changing is there a way to keep your new house in style and trendy without going broke trying to keep up with the Jones family?


A: When it comes to custom building and designing your own personal home we at Decora believe the choice of finishing products chosen should reflect on the clients lifestyle and personality not what they believe is trendy. You have to remember that this is your home which you can come home to everyday and should feel proud and get that welcome home feeling every time you walk through the door. 


Nikki MacDonald: Since moving back to Saskatchewan, I've noticed some new houses having their roof built on the ground and then lifted onto the building. Why?


A: Every home has its own truss layout and some can be extremely challenging. When a framer decides to build the roof on the ground and then lift it onto the building it would be for the reason of the challenges on that particular roof would be safer and easier to assemble on a flat surface. 


Rachelle Nieman: If you have a huge lot, with an older house, would you recommend tearing down and rebuilding, or, renovating on existing lot? Area is Nutana and house was built in 1940s. My sis wants to keep her huge backyard. 


A: Decora Homes also does Renovations and we do believe in renovating a character home if the client is happy with the current layout and the renovations that would be involved are feasible to stay within the client’s budget. You can make some changes to a character homes layout if needed but you have to remember that there will be structural walls which cannot be moved. 


Lisa Leavitt-McLeod: What is the number one seller...bathrooms or kitchens? And if you had to choose one to put most money into, which would it be? 


A: The #1 seller of a home we believe is the kitchen. Bathrooms are important but you have to remember that you spend allot more time in the kitchen and that everyone that comes into your home will most likely see the kitchen. It comes down to first impression!
