You might have noticed that most 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 fun 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 replacing your normal items 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 seasonal 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 closet space, use decorations that don’t require storage or take up very little storage space.
Live greenery and Christmas trees only last a single season before getting tossed out. Likewise with gingerbread houses. Another temporary decoration is simply putting out bowls of colorful candies to brighten up the space and snack on until they’re gone.
Not every seasonal decoration needs to be large. Smaller decorations that store easily can make just as big an impact. Get ornaments that won’t break 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 A Christmas Tree That Works In Your Apartment
If you celebrate Christmas, having a Christmas tree is part of the fun. But those lengthy branches cause a problem in smaller apartments. Thankfully, you can easily find Christmas trees in many 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, consider a tabletop tree or a novel half or corner topiary. These types of trees stand against a wall or in a corner to save space.
Get Creative with Placement
Apartments may not have the same architecture or amenities that single-family houses do. If you don’t have a spacious windowsill for your menorah or a brick 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, the next best thing is to add lights to your windows.
You can delight the neighbors with lights strung up or place traditional wreaths and candles in each window. Let each member of the family create a paper snowflakes chain or set up popular holiday characters peeking out. There’s a long history of decorating store windows during the holiday season, so why not add some flair your windows at home!
