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 how can you get the same effect in a Fishers apartment?

Don’t fret. There are a lot of cheery and elegant ways to decorate your apartment this holiday season. No matter the size of your home’s layout, you can try these great Fishers apartment decorating ideas for the holidays.

Upgrade Your Usual Home Decorations With Holiday Items

If you don't like having extra decorations in your Fishers apartment, try swapping out existing accessories with more holiday-style alternatives. Switch out your doormat with a holiday mat. Switch out throw blankets and throw pillows with seasonal ones. Stock the bathroom and kitchen with seasonal towels. Decorations don’t need to be just ornamental. They can be practical as well!

Stick With Fishers Apartment Decorating Ideas That Don’t Take Up Storage Space

If you have limited storage, use decorations that you don’t need to store or take up limited storage space.

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

Not every seasonal display needs to be large. Little decorations that are easy to store can still give off a “wow” factor. Buy unbreakable ornaments to minimize storage packing. Experiment with wall hangings, collapsible cardboard or fabric decorations, window static clings, and flexible garlands that easily fit into compact containers after the new year.

Get A Christmas Tree That Works In Your Space

If you observe Christmas, a Christmas tree is a must. But those long branches can overwhelm smaller apartments. Thankfully, it’s easy to buy Christmas trees in a variety of sizes.

When choosing a Christmas tree, be sure to pick one that is small enough to put a star on your tree. As for width, narrower, shorter trees work better in smaller places.

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

Place Your Accessories In New Places

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 fireplace for your Christmas stockings, don’t worry. You can put traditional decorations in nontraditional places when you live in a Fishers apartment.

Menorahs are just as beautiful on a console, entertainment center, or shelf. Christmas stockings can hang from coat pegs on the wall, windowsills, 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 Instead Of Your Yard

People enjoy walking by outdoor light displays, but you may not have the option to display your own when you live in a Fishers apartment. If you don’t have outdoor space to add lights to, the next best thing is to decorate your windows.

You can delight the neighbors with lights or hang traditional wreaths and warm candles in every window. Let the kids have fun building a garland of paper snowflakes or set up cute holiday silhouettes peeking out. Stores have been staging their windows for years, so why not decorate your windows at home!
