Christmas Decorating For A Small Apartment – We all know that Christmas is the most magical time of year, but it can be a challenge to celebrate with limited space.
Whether you have a studio apartment or live in a tiny house, it’s important to make the most of your living space and not let it become stressful.
Here are some tips on how I decorate my small apartment during the holidays:
Go up, not out.
The first step to creating a cozy, holiday atmosphere in your small apartment is to get creative with the space you have.
If you’re like most people, you probably don’t have much room for decorations. But do not let this stop you!
Your walls can be used as decoration and a focal point of the room; hang pictures on them or use them as a canvas for artwork, such as Christmas cards or framed drawings.
You can also hang garlands around your windows or doors using Command hooks (or other hooks), which will create an instant Christmas look without taking up too much space.
If hanging things from the ceiling isn’t something that’s been done before in your home, then consider adding it to this year’s decorating scheme!
You could try hanging stockings from above (or just one stocking if space is limited) and topping it off with an ornament or two for added interest.
Or maybe even tie up some lights there—Christmas lights are always fun to play around with when it comes time to decorate!
Another idea would be using all of that extra space under beds—I mean honestly though: how many times have we seen people decorate their beds? Not enough, I say!
Get creative with storage.
When decorating a small apartment, every inch of space counts.
You don’t want to waste any unnecessary space by filling it with things that don’t serve a purpose or by bringing in items that will only take up more room and make your place look cluttered.
You can create storage solutions using many different items: containers and baskets, shelves and hooks, wall space and even under-bed storage!
For example, you can use a basket or container to hold all of your blankets at the foot of your bed instead of piling them on top of each other in your linen closet (which is what I did for years).
This frees up valuable floor space for other things like a rug or area rug if needed!
Use your space wisely.
Now that you know what to use, let’s talk about how to best use the space available.
In an apartment or studio, there are a few things you can do to make your decorations look great.
- Use wall space. The walls are the cheapest and easiest way to display some of your holiday decorations. You can hang garlands, lights and wreaths around windows and doors—and above lintels too!
- Use ceiling space. If you have a high ceiling (or even a vaulted one) why not add some garlands across it? You could even take them down as they grow in length over time! This can be done with lights too: stringing them across the top of your room will create a festive feeling without taking up much space at all.
- Use floor space…kinda…if that makes sense? By this I mean laying out lights on the floor instead of hanging them from above means there won’t be any empty areas where dust might build up over time so just make sure nobody trips over them! Just remember not many people think about doing this until after Christmas so don’t wait too long until it’s too late!
Don’t be afraid of color
Don’t be afraid of color. Color is a great way to add life to a small space, and it can also help you create warmth if your apartment tends to get cold.
And by paying attention to where you choose to use color, you can draw attention to certain pieces of furniture or areas that need more light.
Color doesn’t have to be used in conventional ways—you can use it in unexpected ways (like on the walls) or combine different colors together for a cohesive look that works well with any decorating style.
Don’t be afraid to decorate but make sure you are using your space effectively
Don’t go overboard. It’s easy to fall into the trap of trying to decorate too much when you have a small space, but that can end up making things feel cluttered and overwhelmed.
Instead, focus on using your existing furniture and accessories in new ways.
- Use your space wisely: Think about how you want to use your apartment while keeping it open-concept so it feels spacious without being empty or bland.
- Don’t be afraid of color! A little bit of color goes a long way toward helping a room feel welcoming and cozy instead of dull and lifeless. Redecorating doesn’t mean having to overhaul everything at once; instead make small changes that reflect the way you live now (and buy yourself some flowers).
- Don’t be afraid for what’s coming next year – just enjoy today!
So there you have it, some great tips to decorate your small apartment. We hope this has been helpful and remember to have fun with it!
