Mason Home Decor : How to choose your Christmas Tree + Giveaway!

Christmas is coming!

In many homes across Singapore, you will see lights sparkling through the living room. This is the season to dust off your Christmas trees and start decorating. There will be new home owners who are looking to get a new tree or households that want one to replace the old one. In Singapore, it is common for people to search for artificial trees instead of real trees due to space constraints and weather. With so many variation of trees in the market, how do you choose the right one?

Partnering with Masons Home Decor, we bring you tips on how to choose the right Christmas Tree for your home.

Choosing the Right Christmas Tree

Choosing a tree suitable for your home is not simply a click and buy process. Consider the following factors when you choose the tree

Size of Tree
Would you want a 5 ft tree or a 12 feet tree. The former will be great for small rooms while the latter would look majestic in a double volume room. For most houses, a 5-7ft tree would work in these circumstances. You can also place a box under the tree to make it taller than it originally was. 

Colour of Tree
Green or White, Dark or Light. Personally we like the trees Green with darker shades as they look more traditional and realistic.

Types of Tree
Christmas trees comes in all shapes and kind. There are the traditional Alpine tree, the slim Colorado Pine,  the lush Cashmere Pine, the Giant Needle Pine or the premier Balsam Fir version

Reputable Sellers
When sourcing for trees, go for reputable sellers . There are plenty of cheaper trees in the market from retailers from Qoo10. However, in terms of quality , they pale in comparison to reputable companies. If you are shopping online, you might want to check out stores like Masons Home Decor that had been in the business of selling Christmas Trees for a period of time.

Making a tree is a family affair. So with a little help from everyone, the tree is ready within an hour!

The tree turned out to be a luxurious blend of blue and silver. We love how the leaves looked icy green when the lights were lit. We reckon our tree is one of a kind. Now we just need to add presents under the tree. All contributions welcome!
