Holiday decorations

Perhaps you’ve noticed that a lot of holiday inspiration photos showcase large houses and decorations to match. So how can you achieve the same holiday feeling in a Greenwood apartment?

Never fear. There are plenty of cheery and beautiful ways to decorate your apartment this winter. No matter the size of your apartment, you should try these easy Greenwood apartment decorating ideas for the holidays.

Replace Your Everyday Home Knickknacks With Festive Ones

If you don't want to add extra trinkets in your Greenwood apartment, try swapping out your normal pieces with more holiday-style alternatives. Switch out your welcome mat with a fun one. Replace throw blankets and pillows on the couch with holiday-themed ones. Add holiday towels to your bathroom and kitchen. Decorations don’t have to be just aesthetic. They can be functional as well!

Stick With Greenwood Apartment Decorating Ideas That Don’t Require Storage Space

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

Fresh greenery and Christmas trees only last one season before getting discarded. The same happens with gingerbread houses. Another temporary decoration is simply displaying bowls of colorful candies to brighten up the space and snack on until they’re gone.

Not every seasonal decoration needs to be large. Compact decorations that store easily can still give off a “wow” factor. Get ornaments that won’t break to save space on storage packing. Use flat wall hangings, collapsible cardboard or fabric decorations, window static clings, and flexible garlands that easily fit into little boxes after the new year.

Get An Appropriately-sized Christmas Tree

If you celebrate Christmas, a Christmas tree is a must. But those lengthy piney branches cause a problem in littlier apartments. Luckily, today you can buy Christmas trees in many different sizes.

When deciding on a Christmas tree, be sure to buy one that fits your space and leaves room to put a star on your tree. As for width, narrower, smaller trees work better in smaller spaces.

If you’re really tight on space, try a tabletop tree or an artificial half or corner topiary. Half trees and corner trees butt up against a wall or are placed in a corner to make the most of your space.

Place Your Items In Creative Places

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

Menorahs look just as lovely on a table, entertainment center, or shelf. Christmas stockings can hang from 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 walking by outdoor holiday lights, but you might not be able to set up your own when you live in a Greenwood apartment. If you don’t have a yard to add lights to, the next best thing is to add lights to your windows.

You can impress the neighbors with strands of lights or place green wreaths and candles in the windows. Have the kids put together a garland of paper snowflakes or set up popular holiday character figures peering out. Stores have been staging their windows for years, so why not decorate your windows at home!
