Fishers Apartment Decorating Ideas For The Holidays

You might have noticed that most holiday inspiration magazine articles show off large houses and big decorations. So how can you get the same holiday spirit in a Fishers apartment?

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

Replace Your Everyday Home Knickknacks With Holiday Ones

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

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

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

Fresh greenery and Christmas trees only last a single season before getting discarded. The same goes for gingerbread houses. Another short-term decoration is simply putting out bowls of festive candies to decorate with and snack on until they’re all eaten.

Not every seasonal decoration has to be large. Small decorations that store easily can still feel warm and cozy. 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 are easy to fit into compact containers after the holiday season.

Choose A Christmas Tree That Works For Your Space

If you observe Christmas, a Christmas tree is a must. However, those full branches cause a problem in littlier apartments. Luckily, it’s easy to buy Christmas trees in different sizes.

When deciding on a Christmas tree, be sure to pick one that leaves enough space between the tree and the ceiling to put a star on your tree. As for girth, thinner, smaller trees work better in smaller spaces.

If you’re extremely tight on space, consider a tabletop 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 spacious windowsill for your menorah or a brick fireplace for stockings, don’t fret. You can put traditional decorations in nontraditional places in your Fishers apartment.

Menorahs are just as beautiful on a console, desk, or bookshelf. Stockings can be hung on hooks on a 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 If You Don’t Have A Yard

Everyone enjoys 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, the next best thing is to add lights to your windows.

You can wow the neighborhood with lights strung up or put green wreaths and candles in each window. Have each member of the family create a garland of paper snowflakes or set up tiny holiday character figures in fun places. There’s a long history of dressing store windows during the holiday season, so why not add some festive flair your windows at home!
