November 24, 2020

Holiday decorations

Perhaps you’ve noticed that most holiday inspiration photos feature family-sized houses and big decorations. So how can you get the same effect in a Brownsburg apartment?

Never fear. There are a lot of festive and beautiful ways to decorate your apartment this winter. No matter how large or small your apartment is, you can try these easy Brownsburg apartment decorating ideas for the holidays.

Replace Your Current Home Decorations With Festive Ones

If you don't want to add extra decorations in your Brownsburg apartment, try swapping out existing items with more holiday-style alternatives. Replace your welcome mat with a holiday mat. Switch out blankets and throw pillows with holiday-themed ones. Stock the kitchen and bathroom with holiday towels. Decorations don’t have to be just aesthetic. They can be functional as well!

Try Brownsburg Apartment Decorating Ideas That Don’t Require Storage

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

Natural greenery and Christmas trees have a short lifespan. The same happens with gingerbread houses. Another temporary decoration is simply displaying dishes of festive candies to decorate with and snack on until they’re all eaten.

Not every holiday decoration is big and glitzy. Smaller decorations that are easy to store can make just as big an impact. Use sturdy ornaments to minimize the need for bubblewrap. Use flat wall hangings, foldable cardboard or fabric decorations, window clings, and flexible garlands that don’t take much to fit into compact boxes after the holiday season.

Choose The Right-sized Christmas Tree

If you observe Christmas, having a Christmas tree is part of the fun. However, those full branches can be too large for littlier apartments. Luckily, today you can find Christmas trees in a variety of sizes.

When choosing a Christmas tree, try to get one that is small enough for your tree topper. As for width, thinner, shorter trees work better in smaller spaces.

If you don’t have a lot of floor space, think about a 2-3’ tree or a novel half or corner tree. Half trees and corner trees fit against your wall or 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 standard fireplace for stockings, it’s not a huge deal. You can put your usual holiday decorations in unusual places in your Brownsburg apartment.

Menorahs are just as lovely on a table, desk, or bookshelf. Stockings can be hung on coathooks, door handles, 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 If You Don’t Have A Yard

People love outdoor light displays, but you might not be able to put up your own when you live in a Brownsburg apartment. When you don’t have outdoor space to decorate, then go ahead and add lights to your windows.

You can delight the neighbors with lights strung up or put traditional wreaths and warm candles in the windows. Have the kids put together a paper snowflakes chain or set up tiny holiday character figures peering out. Stores have been dressing their windows for decades, so why not spruce up your windows at home!
