If you love Christmas, decorating will be part of the fun. It will fill your home with the spirit of the season and let you feel the excitement every time you come in your front door.
But the joys of decorating can become compromised if you are dealing with a small space. After all, no one wants their space to look cramped and crowded. So what can you do to get around it?
Here are some tips for decorating in small home.
Small Size Your Décor
A small space needs small decorations. Instead of filling your room with a large tree, try a mini one. Use tasteful ornaments like flowers and replace existing elements with seasonal ones. For instance, replacing a black area rug with a red one, or blue curtains with green will give your home a festive vibe without taking up extra space.
Lights are Perfect
Lights make great holiday decorations, and they won’t take up extra space. If you can’t hang them outside your home, take to the inside putting them on ceilings and around doors and windows.
Make the Door Apart of Your Décor
Your door is a great place for decorations. It will fill guests with the holiday spirit before they even enter your home. The best part is, ornaments you place on your exterior will never take up room in your interior.
Use Existing Fixtures for Surfaces
You won’t want to add too much to your floor area, but you can take advantage of the space you have on your mantle, windowsills and coffee tables. Use these furnishings to display seasonal figurines, ornaments, evergreen plants and other festive items.
Stick to a Theme
A theme will help your holiday décor look congruous with your existing décor. So if you have a country home, go for a country Christmas theme. If you are all about bringing the outside in, turn to mother nature for holiday inspiration. This will make everything blend in, so it doesn’t look as cluttered.
Use the Walls
Your walls are the perfect spot for decorative items and hanging ornaments won’t take up space in your rooms. Garlands, tinsel, wreaths and even Christmas themed pictures will work to infuse your home with cheer.
White is known for making rooms look more spacious. You can capitalize on this by adding white decorations. Hang a string of snowflakes from your upper walls. White angels and bells will also be ideal. This strategy will work particularly well in white rooms, but it will add a sense of space in any part of the home.
