Sylvania Apartment Decorating Ideas For The Holidays

November 24, 2020

Holiday decorations

Perhaps you’ve noticed that many holiday inspiration Instagrams show off expansive houses and oversized decorations. So how can you achieve the same holiday spirit in a Sylvania apartment?

Never fear. There are many fun 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 Accessories With Holiday Pieces

If you don't like having too many decorations in your Sylvania apartment, try replacing your normal pieces with more seasonal alternatives. Swap out your doormat with a holiday mat. Replace blankets and couch pillows with holiday-themed 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 storage, set up decorations that don’t need storage or use a small amount of storage space.

Live greenery and Christmas trees only last one season before getting thrown out. The same goes for gingerbread houses. Another temporary decoration is just putting 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 packaging during storage. Use flat wall hangings, foldable cardboard or fabric decorations, window clings, and flexible garlands that don’t take much to fit into compact containers when the season is over.

Choose 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 find Christmas trees in 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, thinner, compact trees look better in smaller spaces.

If you don’t have a lot of floor space, try a tabletop 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 traditional decorations in nontraditional 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 walking by 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 outdoor space to add lights to, the next best thing is to add lights to your windows.

You can wow the neighborhood with lights or put traditional wreaths and warm 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 decorating their windows for decades, so why not add some flair your windows at home!
