How to Choose Your Chinese New Year Decorations

There are a ton of decoration ideas and pieces available in Singapore as the Chinese New Year draws closer. If you’re having a tough time choosing which one should you buy, let us help you out.

Budget

First things first, remember that these are purely for aesthetics to bring in good luck and may provide a bit of usefulness. Set only what you feel is okay to be spent on so you won’t impulse purchase. Not only is that unwise, but you might start your Chinese New Year low on funds, which isn’t quite lucky, to begin with. The best thing you should do first is to set an amount. It should be something you’re comfortable with.  

Size

Once you have your budget, the next thing you want to consider is the size or your home or office, and the size of the decor. They don’t come in as uniformed. All of the products here are unique and maybe bigger or smaller than others. To make sure you won’t overdo stuff and make the place crowded, just pick a big ornament if you have enough space. If you live in an apartment, it’s better to choose those that are simple and have extra use such as a food container or a floor mat – stickers work wonders, too.


Conclusion

Chinese New Year decors are accessories that make the celebration ten times better as they provide a brighter atmosphere in your home. But aside from that, they also invite good fortune to each and every family member. However, they should never be compulsory. What matters most is to be with family, to share your blessings with others, and to have a blast to start the year with happiness.
