To show Christmas cheer this season, your house doesn’t have to look like the Griswolds. Whether you have a petite home or a one-bedroom apartment, you can utilize any of these ideas for holiday decorations that don’t require extra square footage. Read on to see different looks and ideas to create a festive mood.
If a large, 8-foot Christmas tree isn’t in the cards for your living room, fear not! Tabletop and small-scale trees can do the job just as well (and easier!) for smaller spaces. Try flocked varieties, pre-lit, multicolor, and fiber optic trees in your space for some added holiday cheer.
Holiday lights aren’t just for the exterior. Adding a few simple twinkle lights to windows, mirrors, mantels, and around doorways is a perfect solution when you live in an apartment or you don’t have the space to do anything larger indoors. Best of all, the lights look great all winter so you can keep them up throughout the season.
Garland & Greenery
Similar to string lights, garland can be draped just about anywhere in your small space. Try on your mantel, dresser, mirror, bar cart, and in the doorway. Garland and greenery adds life to your space while being celebratory and not taking up any space. There are many options that are prelit and include ornaments as well.
Small Holiday Decor Pieces
Think outside of the holiday decorating box. For something different, try festive lanterns, candles, votives, decorative pillows, and tabletop pieces — these won’t take up space, plus they’re easy to put away later.
Get creative with your festive decor this season. Think vertical when you decorate if you have a smaller space, and don’t be afraid to scale back on size. Keep it simple with pinecones, garland, candles, and tabletop decor.
