Fishers Apartment Decorating Ideas For The Holidays

November 24, 2020

Holiday decorations

You’ve probably noticed that a lot of holiday inspiration magazine articles feature large houses and big decorations. So how can you achieve the same holiday spirit in a Fishers apartment?

Never fear. There are many fun and stylish ways to decorate your apartment this winter. No matter the size of your apartment, you should try these easy Fishers apartment decorating ideas for the holidays.

Replace Your Everyday Home Accessories With Holiday Ones

If you don't have room for too many decorations in your Fishers apartment, try swapping out existing pieces with more holiday-style alternatives. Swap out your welcome mat with a fun mat. Switch out blankets and throw pillows with seasonal ones. Add holiday towels to your kitchen and bathroom. Decorations don’t have to be purely aesthetic. They can be practical as well!

Use Fishers Apartment Decorating Ideas That Don’t Need Lots of Storage Space

If your storage or closets are full, set up decorations that don’t need storage or take up very little storage space.

Live greenery and Christmas trees only last a few weeks. The same goes for gingerbread houses. Another short-term decoration is simply putting out bowls of holiday candies to decorate with and snack on until they’re all eaten.

Not every seasonal decoration has to be large. Small decorations that pack down tightly can still give off a “wow” factor. Get ornaments that won’t break to save space on storage packing. Use flat wall hangings, foldable cardboard or fabric decorations, window clings, and bendable garlands that easily fit into compact containers after the holiday season.

Pick An Appropriately-sized Christmas Tree

If you observe Christmas, a Christmas tree is a must. However, those full branches cause a problem in small apartments. Luckily, today you can buy Christmas trees in many different sizes.

When deciding on a Christmas tree, be sure to pick one that is small enough to put a star on your tree. As for girth, slender, smaller trees work better in smaller rooms.

If you’re extremely tight on space, try a table tree or a novel half or corner tree. Half trees and corner trees stand against your wall or are placed in a corner to make the most of your space.

Get Creative with Placement

Apartments might not have the same architecture or amenities as single-family houses. If your apartment doesn’t have a wide windowsill for your menorah or a brick fireplace for stockings, it’s not a huge deal. You can put your usual holiday decorations in unusual places in your Fishers apartment.

Menorahs are just as beautiful on a console, desk, or bookshelf. Stockings can be hung on coat pegs on the wall, windowsills, 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 display your own outdoor lights when you live in a Fishers apartment. When you don’t have personal outdoor space to decorate, instead you can add lights to your windows.

You can impress the neighbors with strands of lights or put green wreaths and candles in every window. Have each member of the family create a winter wonderland with paper snowflakes or set up cute holiday silhouettes in fun places. Stores have been dressing their windows for decades, so why not add some festive flair your windows at home!
