Fishers Apartment Decorating Ideas For The Holidays

You’ve probably noticed that a lot of holiday inspiration Instagrams showcase expansive houses and big decorations. So how can you find the same effect in a Fishers apartment?

Don’t fret. There are a lot of festive and stylish 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.

Upgrade Your Everyday Home Decorations With Holiday Items

If you don't like having extra decorations in your Fishers apartment, try swapping out your normal pieces with more seasonal ones. Swap out your welcome mat with a fun one. Switch out blankets and pillows on the couch with holiday-colored ones. Add holiday towels to your bathroom and kitchen. Decorations don’t need to be just ornamental. They can be functional as well!

Try Fishers Apartment Decorating Ideas That Don’t Require Storage

If you have limited storage, use decorations that don’t require storage or take up very little storage space.

Fresh greenery and Christmas trees only last a few weeks. Likewise with gingerbread houses. Another temporary decoration is simply setting out bowls of colorful candies to decorate with and snack on until they’re gone.

Not every seasonal decoration needs to be large. Smaller decorations that pack down tightly can make just as big an impact. Get sturdy ornaments to save space on packaging during storage. Try wall hangings, foldable cardboard or fabric decorations, window static clings, and flexible garlands that don’t take much to fit into little containers after the holidays.

Pick An Appropriately-sized Christmas Tree

If you celebrate Christmas, having a Christmas tree is part of the fun. But those long branches cause a problem in smaller apartments. Thankfully, you can easily buy Christmas trees in different sizes.

When selecting a Christmas tree, try to buy one that is small enough to put a tree topper on. As for girth, narrower, smaller trees are better in smaller places.

If you don’t have a lot of floor space, try a table tree or a novel half or corner topiary. These types of trees stand against a wall or in a corner to save space.

Place Your Accessories In New Places

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 fireplace for stockings, don’t fret. You can put standard holiday decorations in new places when you live in a Fishers apartment.

Menorahs look just as special on a console, desk, or bookshelf. Christmas stockings can hang from hooks on a wall, door handles, or shelves. Don’t have a front-facing living room window for the Christmas tree? Place it in a bedroom window instead.

Decorate Windows Instead Of Your Yard

People enjoy outdoor light displays, but you might not be able to set up your own outdoor lights when you’re in a Fishers apartment. If you don’t have personal outdoor space to decorate, instead you can add lights to your windows.

You can delight the neighbors with strands of lights or place traditional wreaths and candles in every window. Let each member of the family create a paper snowflakes chain or set up popular holiday characters peering out. There’s a long history of dressing store windows during the holiday season, so why not add some flair your windows at home!
