Ramadan and Eid home decorating and organising tips for Abu Dhabi and Dubai homes.
Eid is fast approaching and it’s time once again to welcome family and friends into your homes to celebrate this holy season. To make your guests feel special & comfortable during these visits and gatherings, you can follow these easy-to-follow tips!
Declutter And Organise
The first step in any decorating project is to clean up your space. Time to get rid of items, décor, and furniture that are either worn down or outdated. If an item does not “spark joy” anymore, time to give it up. Ramadan is the season of giving so this is the perfect time to donate some of your belongings to the less fortunate.
Avoid having your space cluttered with a lot of stuff. Utilise storage boxes, shelves, and baskets to store toys, books, magazines, pens, bills, and other knick knacks that are usually left lying around.

Balance Function And Style
When choosing how to style your home and rearrange your furniture, always find the right balance between function and design. Choose decorative elements that can be used in other ways. Instead of massive jars for example, choose decorative side tables to save space.

Function is also very important if you are planning to renovate a section of your house. For example, if you are redesigning your kitchen, make sure that the space is designed ergonomically so it is practical and comfortable to work in.

It’s All In The Details
You don’t need to spend on large pieces of décor to impress your guests. By choosing items with intricate details or unique designs, you can instantly have a style upgrade. These items will also add character and personality to your home. They can also serve as interesting conversation pieces during celebrations.
Because a lot of Eid gatherings in Dubai and Abu Dhabi are centred on food, a great idea is to look for interesting pieces of tableware like cutlery, plates, serving dishes, and beverage glasses.

Add A Pop Of Colour
Many people do not realise how colour can instantly transform any space. If you’re looking for an affordable yet dramatic way to give your home a makeover before Eid, this is something you should consider.
Adding colourful pillows, art pieces, or rugs can liven up any room. These colourful items can also provide a festive feel to your home.

You can also paint a plain wall in your house to add a focal point in the room. The paint colour does not necessarily have to be bright or loud. You can go for muted or contrasting tones that match the overall style of your house.

Use Smart Solutions
When guests come and go, it is not always easy to find the time to keep your home clean – there’s food to prepare, dishes to
wash, and floors to clean. However, you don’t need to do it all by yourself. Take advantage of technology to help you out. Installing a state-of-the-art dishwasher will save you a lot of time. Another great investment is a robot vacuum so you can always make sure that your floors are spotless.
