Sylvania Apartment Decorating Ideas For The Holidays

Perhaps you’ve noticed that many holiday inspiration spreads feature expansive houses and oversized decorations. So what’s a Sylvania apartment dweller to do if you don't have a large space?

Never fear. There are many festive and elegant ways to decorate your apartment this holiday season. No matter how large or small your apartment is, you can try these Sylvania apartment decorating ideas for the holidays.

Replace Your Usual Home Knickknacks With Holiday Pieces

If you don't like having too many decorations in your Sylvania apartment, try swapping out your normal pieces with more seasonal alternatives. Swap out your doormat with a holiday mat. Switch out blankets and couch pillows with seasonal ones. Add festive towels to your bathroom and kitchen. Decorations don’t need to be just aesthetic. They can be functional, too!

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

If you have limited closet space, set up decorations that don’t need 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 temporary decoration is just setting out bowls of colorful candies to brighten up the space and munch on until they’re gone.

Not every holiday display is big and glitzy. Little decorations that store easily can make just as big an impact. Buy unbreakable ornaments to save space on storage packing. Use flat wall hangings, foldable cardboard or fabric decorations, window clings, and flexible garlands that don’t take much to fit into small containers when the season is over.

Pick A Christmas Tree That Works In Your Apartment

If you observe Christmas, a Christmas tree is a must. But those full piney branches can be too large for small apartments. Luckily, it’s easy to buy Christmas trees in many different sizes.

When choosing a Christmas tree, be sure to buy one that is small enough to put a tree topper on. As for girth, slender, shorter trees look better in smaller rooms.

If you don’t have a lot of floor space, try a table tree or an artificial half or corner topiary. Half trees and corner trees butt up against your 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 that single-family houses do. If you don’t have a spacious windowsill for your menorah or a brick fireplace for stockings, don’t worry. You can put your usual holiday decorations in unusual locations when you live in a Sylvania apartment.

Menorahs are just as special on a console, entertainment center, or shelf. 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 Rather Than Your Yard

People enjoy seeing outdoor holiday lights, but you might not have the option to display your own outdoor lights when you’re in a Sylvania 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 wow the neighborhood with lights or place green wreaths and candles in the windows. Have the kids have fun building a paper snowflakes chain or set up popular holiday characters peering out. Stores have been dressing their windows for decades, so why not add some flair your windows at home!
