Make the stairs a feature

Add some decorative touches to the internal stairs to create a festive path up into the loft. Weave a garland around the balusters, or place LED candles on the treads along the railing side. Of course, use your discretion - you don’t want to create a tripping hazard, and skip this idea if you have small children. But some carefully placed decorations can really add to the festive vibes in your home.
