Upcycling Ideas: Get Your Home Ready For The Holidays

UpcyclingThe Holiday season is here and that means you will be spending more time with your friends and family inside. Before they come over, deck out your home to get everybody in the right mood. Bring some of that festive feeling inside using some reclaimed materials.

Upcycling is the art of repurposing salvaged furniture and materials in an upscale manner giving them new life as something other than what they were originally designed to be, especially since the individual components may have outlived their usefulness in their original incarnation. Riccas’s Architecturals is a treasure trove of reclaimed salvage materials. We collected some ideas how you  can make your home more festive for the upcoming Holiday season in a very unique way.

Chandelier & Candelabras

The days are getting shorter and it feels like you leave your home in the dark and come home in the dark. Brighten up your house with a beautiful chandelier or candelabra from Ricca’s. You can either re-wire it, or just use candles to get that romantic festive mood just right for the holidays. From 10 Arm Crystal Chandeliers to Art Deco glass light fixtures to Spanish brass chandeliers you will find a wide variety of styles at Ricca’s.

Spruce Up Your Home With Stained Glass Windows

Upscale Ideas: Get Your Home Ready For The HolidaysAdd architectural interest to your home with old windows repurposed as decor. Decorating with old windows can add instant charm to any space. When you find a stained-glass window, hang it over a sunny window in your home to let colorful light stream through your rooms. You could also place stained-glass window panes in the front door or small windows in the bathroom or kitchen.

Add A Faux Fireplace

Faux FireplaceA faux fireplace can add a lot of character to your home. You can also decorate it easily for the holidays. This is a fairly easy project which won’t cost you much. Get a fireplace mantel front, there are plenty out there. You will also need to build a base frame to which you will attach the mantel.  You could stack some wood or put a pumpkin in the space. For Christmas, an LED screen displaying a burning yule could become the focal point of your home.
