Greenwood Apartment Decorating Ideas For The Holidays

November 24, 2020

Holiday decorations

Perhaps you’ve noticed that most holiday inspiration magazine articles show off large houses and oversized decorations. So what’s a Greenwood apartment dweller to do if you don't have a large space?

Never fear. There are a lot of festive and stylish ways to decorate your apartment this holiday season. No matter the size of your home’s layout, you can try these great Greenwood apartment decorating ideas for the holidays.

Upgrade Your Current Home Decorations With Festive Pieces

If you don't have room for extra decorations in your Greenwood apartment, try switching out your current accessories with more festive alternatives. Replace your doormat with a fun mat. Swap out blankets and throw pillows with holiday-colored ones. Add seasonal towels to your kitchen and bathroom. Decorations don’t need to be purely aesthetic. They can be functional as well!

Try Greenwood Apartment Decorating Ideas That Don’t Require Storage Space

If you have limited closet space, try using decorations that don’t require storage or use a small amount of storage space.

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

Not every seasonal decoration is big and glitzy. Little decorations that pack down tightly can make just as big an impact. Get sturdy ornaments to save space on storage packing. Experiment with flat wall hangings, foldable cardboard or fabric decorations, window clings, and bendable garlands that don’t take much to fit into small containers after the holidays.

Choose The Right-sized Christmas Tree

If you observe Christmas, having a Christmas tree is part of the fun. But those long piney branches cause a problem in littlier apartments. Thankfully, you can easily get Christmas trees in different sizes.

When choosing a Christmas tree, try to get one that leaves enough space between the tree and the ceiling to put a tree topper on. As for circumference, thinner, shorter trees work better in smaller places.

If you’re extremely tight on space, consider a 2-3’ tree or a novel half or corner topiary. These types of trees butt up against a wall or are placed in a corner to make the most of your space.

Be Creative with Placement

Apartments might not have the same architecture or amenities that single-family houses do. If you don’t have a wide windowsill for your menorah or a standard fireplace for stockings, it’s not a huge deal. You can put traditional decorations in nontraditional places in your Greenwood apartment.

Menorahs look just as beautiful on a table, entertainment center, or bookshelf. Stockings can hang from coat pegs on the wall, door handles, or shelves. Don’t have a front-facing living room window for the Christmas tree? Put it in a bedroom window instead.

Decorate Windows Rather Than Your Yard

People love seeing outdoor holiday lights, but you might not have the option to set up your own when you live in a Greenwood apartment. If you don’t have personal outdoor space to decorate, then go ahead and decorate your windows.

You can delight the neighbors with lights strung up or hang festive wreaths and electric candles in each window. Have each member of the family put together a paper snowflakes chain or set up cute holiday characters peeking out. There’s a long history of staging store windows during the holiday season, so why not decorate your windows at home!
