Indianapolis Apartment Decorating Ideas For The Holidays

You might have noticed that many holiday inspiration spreads showcase large houses and oversized decorations. So what’s a Indianapolis apartment dweller to do if you don't have a big space?

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

Upgrade Your Everyday Home Accessories With Festive Ones

If you don't want to add too many trinkets in your Indianapolis apartment, try replacing your normal accessories with more holiday-style ones. Swap out your welcome mat with a holiday one. Replace blankets and throw pillows with holiday-themed ones. Add festive towels to your kitchen and bathroom. Decorations don’t need to be purely aesthetic. They can be functional, too!

Use Indianapolis Apartment Decorating Ideas That Don’t Require Storage

If you have limited closet space, set up decorations that you don’t need to store or use a small amount of storage space.

Fresh greenery and Christmas trees only last a few weeks before getting discarded. The same goes for gingerbread houses. Another short-term decoration is just putting out dishes of holiday candies to brighten up the space and snack on until they’re gone.

Not every seasonal display is big and glitzy. Little decorations that are easy to store can still give off a “wow” factor. Get sturdy ornaments to save space on the need for bubblewrap. Use wall hangings, foldable cardboard or fabric decorations, window static clings, and flexible garlands that are easy to fit into small containers after the holiday season.

Pick A Christmas Tree That Works For Your Space

If you observe Christmas, having a Christmas tree is part of the fun. However, those lengthy branches can overwhelm small apartments. Thankfully, it’s easy to buy Christmas trees in many different sizes.

When selecting a Christmas tree, be sure to pick one that fits your space and leaves room for your tree topper. As for width, slender, compact trees are better in smaller places.

If you’re extremely tight on space, consider a 2-3’ tree or a novel half or corner topiary. Half trees and corner trees stand against your wall or are placed in a corner to make the most of your space.

Place Your Accessories In New Spots

Apartments don’t always have the same architecture or amenities as single-family houses. If you don’t have a spacious windowsill for your menorah or a standard fireplace for your Christmas stockings, don’t fret. You can put standard holiday decorations in new places in your Indianapolis apartment.

Menorahs are just as lovely on a table, entertainment center, or bookshelf. Christmas stockings can hang from coathooks, door handles, or shelves. Don’t have a front-facing living room window for the Christmas tree? Put it in a bedroom window instead.

Decorate Windows Instead Of Your Yard

Everyone enjoys walking by outdoor holiday lights, but you might not have the option to display your own when you’re in a Indianapolis apartment. If you don’t have a yard to decorate, instead you can add lights to your windows.

You can delight the neighbors with lights strung up or place traditional wreaths and candles in every window. Have the kids have fun building a paper snowflakes chain or set up cute holiday silhouettes peeking out. There’s a long history of dressing store windows during the holiday season, so why not spruce up your windows at home!
