7. Big Statement for Small Spaces
If you live in an apartment or a small space, you can still decorate your home for the holidays! In a small home or space, your Christmas Tree will be your predominant décor piece to give your home warm holiday feels. The most important thing when choosing a tree for your small space is the size of the Christmas tree; therefore, our tip is to go with a Christmas tree that is under six feet tall. Then, to keep from overwhelming your small tree with too many decorations you can always opt for a pre-decorated Christmas tree and build the rest of your holiday decorations for your space off of the aesthetic of your Christmas tree. If you want a simple and minimalist approach for your small space, then we’d suggest decorating your hope with just a simple small pre-lit Christmas tree. Are you wanting something more modern and less traditional for your apartment or small living space this Christmas? If so, then you can decorate your home with tabletop Christmas trees to make your home feel seasonal with minimalist sleek and chic accents. No matter the direction you choose to go don’t feel like your space is too small to get into the Christmas spirit.
