Perhaps you’ve noticed that most holiday inspiration magazine articles showcase expansive houses and decorations to match. So what’s a Fishers apartment dweller to do if you don't have a big space?
Never fear. There are plenty of festive and beautiful ways to decorate your apartment this holiday season. No matter the size of your home’s layout, you can try these Fishers apartment decorating ideas for the holidays.
Upgrade Your Usual Home Knickknacks With Festive Pieces
If you don't like having extra decorations in your Fishers apartment, try replacing your normal items with more holiday-style ones. Swap out your doormat with a holiday mat. Swap out blankets and pillows on the couch with seasonal ones. Stock the bathroom and kitchen with seasonal hand towels. Decorations don’t need to be purely ornamental. They can be practical, too!
Stick With Fishers Apartment Decorating Ideas That Don’t Require Lots of Storage Space
If you have limited closet space, set up decorations that you don’t need to store or take up very little storage space.
Live greenery and Christmas trees only last a few weeks. The same goes for gingerbread houses. Another temporary decoration is simply setting out bowls of holiday candies to brighten up the space and munch on until they’re all eaten.
Not every seasonal display needs to be large. Smaller decorations that store easily can make just as big an impact. Get sturdy ornaments to save space on storage packing. Experiment with flat wall hangings, collapsible cardboard or fabric decorations, window clings, and flexible garlands that easily fit into small boxes after the new year.
Choose A Christmas Tree That Works For Your Apartment
If you celebrate Christmas, having a Christmas tree is part of the fun. But those full branches cause a problem in small apartments. Luckily, you can easily find Christmas trees in a variety of sizes.
When deciding on a Christmas tree, be sure to buy one that fits your space and leaves room to put a tree topper on. As for girth, thinner, compact trees look better in smaller places.
If your layout is fairly tight, consider a table tree or an artificial half or corner tree. These types of trees fit against a wall or in a corner to make the most of your space.
Place Your Accessories In New Spots
Apartments don’t always have the same architecture or amenities that single-family houses do. If you don’t have a wide windowsill for your menorah or a brick fireplace to hang your stockings, it’s not a huge deal. You can place standard holiday decorations in new locations when you live in a Fishers apartment.
Menorahs are just as lovely on a console, desk, or shelf. Christmas stockings can be hung on coat pegs on the wall, windowsills, or shelves. Don’t have a public-facing living room window for the Christmas tree? Put it in a bedroom window instead.
Decorate Windows Rather Than Your Yard
Everyone loves outdoor holiday lights, but you might not have the option to put up your own outdoor lights when you’re in a Fishers apartment. When you don’t have outdoor space to add lights to, the next best thing is to decorate your windows.
You can wow the neighborhood with lights strung up or hang green wreaths and warm candles in every window. Have each member of the family create a garland of paper snowflakes or set up popular holiday silhouettes in fun places. Stores have been decorating their windows for decades, so why not spruce up your windows at home!
