Broad Ripple Apartment Decorating Ideas For The Holidays

You’ve probably noticed that most holiday inspiration photos show off family-sized houses and decorations to match. So what’s a Broad Ripple apartment dweller to do if you don't have a large space?

Never fear. There are a lot of cheery and beautiful ways to decorate your apartment for seasonal festivities. No matter the size of your apartment, you can try these great Broad Ripple apartment decorating ideas for the holidays.

Upgrade Your Usual Home Accessories With Holiday Items

If you don't have room for too many decorations in your Broad Ripple apartment, try switching out your normal items with more holiday-style alternatives. Replace your doormat with a holiday one. Swap out throw blankets and pillows on the couch with holiday-colored ones. Stock the bathroom and kitchen with seasonal towels. Decorations don’t have to be just aesthetic. They can be functional, too!

Stick With Broad Ripple Apartment Decorating Ideas That Don’t Need Lots of Storage Space

If you have limited storage, use decorations that don’t need storage or take up limited storage space.

Natural greenery and Christmas trees only last one season before getting tossed out. The same goes for gingerbread houses. Another temporary decoration is simply putting out bowls of festive candies to brighten up the space and munch on until they’re all eaten.

Not every holiday decoration needs to be large. Compact decorations that pack down tightly can still feel warm and cozy. Buy ornaments that won’t break to minimize storage packing. Try wall hangings, collapsible cardboard or fabric decorations, window clings, and flexible garlands that easily fit into small containers after the new year.

Pick A Christmas Tree That Works For Your Apartment

If you observe Christmas, a Christmas tree is a must. But those lengthy branches can be too large for small apartments. Thankfully, today you can get Christmas trees in many different sizes.

When deciding on a Christmas tree, try to get one that is small enough to put a tree topper on. As for girth, slender, smaller trees look better in smaller spaces.

If you’re extremely tight on space, consider a 2-3’ tree or a novel half or corner tree. These types of trees fit against a wall or are placed in a corner to save on floor space.

Get Creative with Placement

Apartments may not have the same architecture or amenities as single-family houses. If your apartment doesn’t have a large windowsill for your menorah or a fireplace for stockings, it’s not a huge deal. You can place your usual holiday decorations in unusual places when you live in a Broad Ripple apartment.

Menorahs look just as special on a table, entertainment center, or shelf. Stockings can hang from coathooks, windowsills, or shelves. Don’t have a public-facing living room window for the Christmas tree? Put it in a bedroom or office window instead.

Decorate Windows Instead Of Your Yard

People enjoy seeing outdoor light displays, but you may not be able to set up your own when you live in a Broad Ripple apartment. When you don’t have outdoor space to add lights to, instead you can decorate your windows.

You can delight the neighbors with strands of lights or place traditional wreaths and warm candles in every window. Let the kids put together a garland of paper snowflakes or set up tiny holiday silhouettes peeking out. There’s a long history of decorating store windows for the holidays, so why not add some festive flair your windows at home!
