How To Decorate For Christmas In Small Spaces

December 15, 2015

Just because you don't have the space doesn't mean that you can't get in the holiday spirit. Whether you live in an apartment, small house, or even a dorm room, there are a variety of ways to deck the halls in the spirit of the season.

The Tree

A Christmas tree can obviously be the centerpiece of any holiday decor, but don't stress over not having room for a full-sized tree. Instead, you could take a small tree and raise it up on a platform to create more of a commanding presence. It's not as intrusive as a big tree, but still captures the holiday spirit.

Then again, there's no rule that says you have to have a tree. You can always string lights or pin garland on your wall in the shape of a tree.

Make Use Of Scent

The proper use of scent can help you create the kind of atmosphere you want for your home. Filling it with holiday scents, like cranberry and cinnamon, can help create the spirit of the season.

Make Use Of Windows

Hang holiday decor like wreaths, ornaments and garlands from your windows if space is tight elsewhere.

Make Use Of Outdoor Space

If you live in an apartment with a balcony, or a house with a deck, don't be afraid to take the spirit of the season outdoors. String lights on your balcony and hang holiday garlands from the balcony ceiling.

Make Room Through Storage

One solution is to move some items into storage over the holidays. Put things away in storage that you can live without during the season to make room for decorations such as a full-sized Christmas tree.

Make Use Of Your Door

No matter where you live you have a door. Don't be afraid to go all-out in using it to display holiday decorations. A festive artificial snow flake display is just one example.

Make Use Of Your Bookshelves

A bookshelf can be a great place to display decorations, such as ornaments, ribbons and lights. You can use your cupboards, as well, or mantel.

Make Use Of Your Walls

Not only can use your wall for a Christmas tree display - as mentioned above - but you can also use it to display your Christmas cards. Spruce it up with bits of greenery.

Swap Out Your Decor

Instead of adding more decor, you can swap out what you have for holiday items, such as holiday-themed throw pillows.
