When it comes to renovating – especially a kitchen – Christmas is often used as a defined deadline to complete the work.

But what if “by Christmas” your renovation project is still ongoing?

Naturally, we want our homes to look amazing for Christmas – but the problem is, the festive season tends to creep up on us, even with careful planning.

Don’t be dismayed however; if you’re in the middle of a renovation project, New Evolution – a UAE-based interior fit out company - has some advice on how you can cope with the stress of renovating your home during the festive season.

The team behind New Evolution know how stressful getting a new kitchen in on time can be, which is why their experts are on hand to help through all of their services.

1. Go for the rustic or industrial vibe

Pipes showing? Scaffolding hanging about? Embrace the industrial look this Christmas, and make use of what you have. You could use scaffolding boards and trestle legs to create a temporary table for your Christmas dinner – then finish the look with table runners or cover a white sheet.

2. Mix and match your tableware

If you’ve packed up your best crockery and tableware; why not opt for an eclectic mix of different styles, colours and sizes. This trend is so current and will totally embrace the sense of chaos.

3. Candles! Candles everywhere

Candles help to soften a space and will create a gentle ambiance in your home. When the lights are dimmed and your candles are lit, they help to camouflage any less perfect decoration.

4. Bring nature into your home

Seek ivy and evergreens to place around your home, using jugs or drape them in places. Alternatively, fir cones placed in small baskets with some baubles can make a lovely, festive centre piece or decoration.

5. It's in the details

Hang decorations around the place – snowflakes, ribbon, tinsel, hearts and other festive décor can help lighten a room that’s otherwise unfinished. A great place to hang these things is also round the back of any dining chairs to spruce the place up.

6. Buy miniatures - the more, the merrier

Have no room for a large, traditional Christmas tree due to your renovation? Don’t panic; why not place miniature trees and other small sizes in pots around your home.

7. Fairy lights can always enhance a space

You can’t go wrong with fairy lights… Especially at Christmas! These are great to hang around windows that may normally have curtains up. Fairy lights will add that festive sparkle!

8. Embrace the BBQ

Living in the UAE means we’re fortunate to enjoy year-round sunshine… There’s no denying the winter months blesses us with fantastic temperatures, so spending Christmas here means there’s a perfect opportunity to ready the BBQ! No oven in your kitchen yet? Heat that BBQ up and enjoy your Christmas dinner outside.

9. Use your TV

No fire place? You can actually find footage of lit fire places that you can play on your TV in the background while opening presents or eating dinner.
