Fishers Apartment Decorating Ideas For The Holidays

November 24, 2020

Holiday decorations

You’ve probably noticed that many holiday inspiration magazine articles showcase family-sized houses and big decorations. So what’s a Fishers apartment dweller to do if you don't have a big space?

Don’t worry. There are endless fun and elegant ways to decorate your apartment this winter. No matter the size of your home’s layout, you should try these great Fishers apartment decorating ideas for the holidays.

Upgrade Your Current Home Decorations With Holiday Pieces

If you don't like having extra decorations in your Fishers apartment, try replacing your normal accessories with more festive ones. Switch out your welcome mat with a fun mat. Replace blankets and couch pillows with holiday-themed ones. Stock the bathroom and kitchen with seasonal towels. Decorations don’t have to be purely aesthetic. They can be functional as well!

Try Fishers Apartment Decorating Ideas That Don’t Need Storage

If your storage or closets are full, try using decorations that you don’t need to store or use a small amount of storage space.

Fresh greenery and Christmas trees only last one season before getting tossed out. Likewise with gingerbread houses. Another short-term decoration is simply setting out dishes of colorful candies to decorate with and munch on until they’re all eaten.

Not every holiday decoration has to be large. Compact decorations that are easy to store can make just as big an impact. Get sturdy ornaments to minimize packaging during storage. Experiment with flat wall hangings, collapsible cardboard or fabric decorations, window static clings, and bendable garlands that are easy to fit into little containers when the season is over.

Pick A Christmas Tree That Works For Your Space

If you observe Christmas, having a Christmas tree is part of the fun. However, those long piney branches cause a problem in smaller apartments. Thankfully, you can easily find Christmas trees in many different sizes.

When choosing a Christmas tree, be sure to pick one that is small enough to put a tree topper on. As for width, slender, shorter trees are better in smaller places.

If you don’t have a lot of floor space, try a tabletop tree or an artificial half or corner topiary. Half trees and corner trees stand against a wall or are placed in a corner to make the most of your space.

Be Creative with Placement

Apartments may not have the same architecture or amenities as single-family houses. If your apartment doesn’t have a large windowsill for your menorah or a standard fireplace for stockings, don’t fret. You can put traditional decorations in nontraditional places in your Fishers apartment.

Menorahs look just as lovely on a table, entertainment center, 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 window instead.

Decorate Windows If You Don’t Have A Yard

People enjoy seeing outdoor holiday lights, but you might not have the option to put up your own when you live in a Fishers apartment. If you don’t have outdoor space to decorate, then go ahead and decorate your windows.

You can impress the neighbors with lights strung up or hang traditional wreaths and electric candles in each window. Have the kids put together a paper snowflakes chain or set up tiny holiday character figures peering out. Stores have been dressing their windows for decades, so why not add some flair your windows at home!
