Westfield Apartment Decorating Ideas For The Holidays

Perhaps you’ve noticed that most holiday inspiration photos showcase large houses and decorations to match. So what’s a Westfield apartment dweller to do if you don't live in a big space?

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

Replace Your Everyday Home Accessories With Festive Pieces

If you don't have room for extra decorations in your Westfield apartment, try swapping out your current items with more holiday-style alternatives. Switch out your welcome mat with a holiday mat. Swap out throw blankets and pillows on the couch with seasonal ones. Stock the bathroom and kitchen with festive hand towels. Decorations don’t have to be purely aesthetic. They can be functional, too!

Stick With Westfield Apartment Decorating Ideas That Don’t Take Up Storage

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

Natural greenery and Christmas trees only last a few weeks. Likewise with gingerbread houses. Another temporary decoration is just putting out dishes of colorful candies to brighten up the space and munch on until they’re gone.

Not every seasonal decoration has to be large. Compact decorations that pack down tightly can make just as big an impact. Buy ornaments that won’t break to minimize storage packing. Experiment with flat wall hangings, collapsible cardboard or fabric decorations, window clings, and bendable garlands that are easy to fit into compact containers when the season is over.

Pick A Christmas Tree That Works In Your Space

If you observe Christmas, you’ll probably get a Christmas tree. However, those full piney branches can overwhelm small apartments. Luckily, you can easily find Christmas trees in many different sizes.

When selecting a Christmas tree, be sure to buy one that leaves enough space between the tree and the ceiling for your tree topper. As for girth, slender, shorter trees work better in smaller spaces.

If you’re extremely tight on space, consider a tabletop tree or a novel half or corner topiary. These types of trees butt up against your wall or in a corner to save space.

Be Creative with Placement

Apartments may not have the same architecture or amenities that single-family houses do. If you don’t have a wide windowsill for your menorah or a brick fireplace for stockings, it’s not a huge deal. You can place traditional decorations in nontraditional places when you live in a Westfield apartment.

Menorahs look just as beautiful on a console, desk, 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 or office window instead.

Decorate Windows Rather Than Your Yard

People love seeing outdoor holiday lights, but you may not have the option to display your own outdoor lights when you live in a Westfield apartment. When you don’t have personal outdoor space to decorate, then go ahead and add lights to your windows.

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