Carmel Apartment Decorating Ideas For The Holidays

Perhaps you’ve noticed that many holiday inspiration spreads showcase family-sized houses and oversized decorations. So how can you find the same effect in a Carmel apartment?

Don’t fret. There are plenty of festive and beautiful ways to decorate your apartment this holiday season. No matter how large or small your apartment is, you should try these great Carmel apartment decorating ideas for the holidays.

Upgrade Your Usual Home Knickknacks With Holiday Ones

If you don't have room for extra decorations in your Carmel apartment, try swapping out your normal pieces with more festive alternatives. Swap out your welcome mat with a holiday mat. Switch out blankets and pillows on the couch with holiday-themed ones. Stock the bathroom and kitchen with holiday hand towels. Decorations don’t have to be purely ornamental. They can be practical as well!

Use Carmel Apartment Decorating Ideas That Don’t Take Up Lots of Storage Space

If your storage or closets are full, set up decorations that don’t require storage or take up very little storage space.

Live greenery and Christmas trees only last a few weeks. Likewise with gingerbread houses. Another short-term decoration is just displaying dishes of colorful candies to add some cheer and snack on until they’re all eaten.

Not every holiday decoration needs to be large. Smaller decorations that store easily can make just as big an impact. Buy unbreakable ornaments to minimize the need for bubblewrap. Try flat wall hangings, foldable cardboard or fabric decorations, window static clings, and flexible garlands that don’t take much to fit into small boxes when the season is over.

Choose A Christmas Tree That Works For Your Space

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

When choosing a Christmas tree, try to buy one that leaves enough space between the tree and the ceiling for your tree topper. As for girth, narrower, shorter trees are better in smaller rooms.

If you’re really tight on space, consider a 2-3’ tree or an artificial half or corner topiary. These types of trees butt up against your wall or are placed in a corner to save space.

Get Creative with Placement

Apartments might 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 fireplace for stockings, don’t fret. You can put traditional decorations in nontraditional places in your Carmel apartment.

Menorahs are just as beautiful on a console, desk, or shelf. Christmas stockings can be hung on hooks on a wall, door handles, or shelves. Don’t have a front-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

Everyone enjoys walking by outdoor holiday lights, but you might not be able to put up your own when you live in a Carmel apartment. When you don’t have a yard to decorate, then go ahead and decorate your windows.

You can wow the neighborhood with strands of lights or hang green wreaths and warm candles in the windows. Have the kids put together a winter wonderland with paper snowflakes or set up popular holiday character figures in fun places. Stores have been dressing their windows for years, so why not decorate your windows at home!
