Fishers Apartment Decorating Ideas For The Holidays

November 24, 2020

Holiday decorations

You might have noticed that most holiday inspiration spreads show off large houses and oversized decorations. So what’s a Fishers apartment dweller to do if you don't have a large space?

Don’t worry. There are a lot of cheery and beautiful ways to decorate your apartment this holiday season. No matter how large or small your apartment is, you can try these Fishers apartment decorating ideas for the holidays.

Replace Your Everyday Home Knickknacks With Festive Items

If you don't have room for too many trinkets in your Fishers apartment, try switching out your current items with more seasonal alternatives. Replace your welcome mat with a holiday mat. Swap out blankets and pillows on the couch with holiday-colored ones. Add seasonal towels to your kitchen and bathroom. Decorations don’t have to be just aesthetic. They can be practical as well!

Stick With Fishers Apartment Decorating Ideas That Don’t Require Lots of Storage Space

If your storage or closets are full, try using decorations that don’t need storage or take up limited storage space.

Fresh greenery and Christmas trees only last a few weeks. The same goes for gingerbread houses. Another temporary decoration is just displaying dishes of holiday candies to add some cheer and munch on until they’re gone.

Not every seasonal display needs to be large. Small decorations that are easy to store can still feel warm and cozy. Use unbreakable ornaments to minimize the need for bubblewrap. Experiment with wall hangings, foldable cardboard or fabric decorations, window static clings, and flexible garlands that easily fit into compact boxes after the holiday season.

Pick A Christmas Tree That Works For Your Apartment

If you celebrate Christmas, a Christmas tree is a must. However, those long branches can be too large for smaller apartments. Luckily, you can easily find Christmas trees in a variety of sizes.

When choosing a Christmas tree, try to buy one that is small enough to put a star on your tree. As for width, narrower, smaller trees look better in smaller rooms.

If your layout is fairly tight, consider a table tree or a novel half or corner topiary. Half trees and corner trees fit against your wall or are placed in a corner to make the most of your space.

Place Your Items In New Places

Apartments might not have the same architecture or amenities as single-family houses. If your apartment doesn’t have a spacious windowsill for your menorah or a brick fireplace to hang your stockings, it’s not a huge deal. You can put your usual holiday decorations in unusual locations in your Fishers apartment.

Menorahs are just as special on a table, desk, or bookshelf. Christmas stockings can hang from coat pegs on the wall, door handles, or shelves. Don’t have a public-facing living room window for the Christmas tree? Place it in a bedroom or office window instead.

Decorate Windows Rather Than Your Yard

People love seeing outdoor light displays, but you may not have the option to set up your own outdoor lights when you’re in a Fishers apartment. When you don’t have personal outdoor space to add lights to, the next best thing is to add lights to your windows.

You can impress the neighbors with lights strung up or put traditional wreaths and electric candles in the windows. Let each member of the family create a winter wonderland with paper snowflakes or set up cute holiday silhouettes peeking out. Stores have been decorating their windows for years, so why not spruce up your windows at home!
