Indianapolis Apartment Decorating Ideas For The Holidays

You might have noticed that most holiday inspiration spreads show off expansive houses and big decorations. So how can you achieve the same effect in a Indianapolis apartment?

Don’t fret. There are many fun and beautiful ways to decorate your apartment this holiday season. No matter the size of your home’s layout, you should try these easy Indianapolis apartment decorating ideas for the holidays.

Replace Your Current Home Decorations With Festive Ones

If you don't want to add extra decorations in your Indianapolis apartment, try switching out existing accessories with more seasonal alternatives. Swap out your doormat with a fun mat. Switch out throw blankets and throw pillows with holiday-themed ones. Stock the bathroom and kitchen with festive hand towels. Decorations don’t need to be purely aesthetic. They can be functional, too!

Use Indianapolis Apartment Decorating Ideas That Don’t Require Storage Space

If your storage or closets are full, use decorations that don’t need storage or use limited storage space.

Natural greenery and Christmas trees have a short lifespan. The same happens with gingerbread houses. Another short-term 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. Smaller decorations that pack down tightly can can still bring in the holiday spirit. Use unbreakable ornaments to minimize packaging during storage. Try wall hangings, collapsible cardboard or fabric decorations, window clings, and flexible garlands that are easy to fit into compact containers after the holiday season.

Get The Right-sized Christmas Tree

If you celebrate Christmas, you’ll probably get a Christmas tree. However, those long piney branches can be too large for smaller apartments. Thankfully, today you can find Christmas trees in a range of sizes.

When choosing a Christmas tree, be sure to get one that is small enough to put a tree topper on. As for girth, thinner, compact trees work better in smaller places.

If your layout is fairly tight, try a tabletop tree or a novel half or corner topiary. These types of trees stand against your wall or are placed in a corner to save on floor space.

Place Your Accessories In New Spots

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

Menorahs look just as lovely on a table, desk, or shelf. Christmas stockings can be hung on hooks on a wall, door handles, or shelves. Don’t have a public-facing living room window for the Christmas tree? Put it in a bedroom or office window instead.

Decorate Windows Instead Of Your Yard

Everyone loves walking by outdoor holiday lights, but you might not be able to put up your own when you live in a Indianapolis apartment. When you don’t have personal outdoor space to decorate, the next best thing is to decorate your windows.

You can delight the neighbors with strands of lights or put festive wreaths and electric candles in every window. Have each member of the family have fun building a winter wonderland with paper snowflakes or set up tiny holiday silhouettes in fun places. Stores have been staging their windows for decades, so why not add some flair your windows at home!
