Westfield Apartment Decorating Ideas For The Holidays

Perhaps you’ve noticed that a lot of holiday inspiration Instagrams show off expansive houses and decorations to match. So how can you get the same effect in a Westfield apartment?

Don’t fret. There are many festive and stylish ways to decorate your apartment this holiday season. No matter how large or small your apartment is, you should try these great Westfield apartment decorating ideas for the holidays.

Upgrade Your Everyday Home Accessories With Festive Ones

If you don't have room for too many decorations in your Westfield apartment, try switching out your normal accessories with more holiday-style alternatives. Swap out your welcome mat with a fun mat. Swap out blankets and couch pillows with seasonal ones. Add seasonal towels to your bathroom and kitchen. Decorations don’t need to be just ornamental. They can be functional as well!

Use Westfield Apartment Decorating Ideas That Don’t Need Storage Space

If you have limited closet space, try using decorations that you don’t need to store or take up very little storage space.

Live greenery and Christmas trees have a short lifespan. The same happens with gingerbread houses. Another short-term decoration is just displaying bowls of festive candies to brighten up the space and munch on until they’re all eaten.

Not every holiday decoration has to be large. Smaller decorations that are easy to store can still give off a “wow” factor. Buy sturdy ornaments to minimize storage packing. Experiment with wall hangings, foldable cardboard or fabric decorations, window clings, and bendable garlands that easily fit into small containers after the new year.

Choose A Christmas Tree That Works For Your Apartment

If you observe Christmas, a Christmas tree is a must. But those lengthy branches cause a problem in small apartments. Luckily, it’s easy to find Christmas trees in different sizes.

When choosing a Christmas tree, be sure to get one that leaves enough space between the tree and the ceiling to put a star on your tree. As for width, thinner, shorter trees look better in smaller rooms.

If you don’t have a lot of floor space, try a 2-3’ tree or an artificial half or corner tree. Half trees and corner trees fit against your wall or are placed in a corner to save on floor space.

Be Creative with Placement

Apartments may not have the same architecture or amenities that single-family houses do. If your apartment doesn’t have a wide windowsill for your menorah or a fireplace to hang your 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, entertainment center, or bookshelf. Christmas stockings can hang from coat pegs on the wall, windowsills, or shelves. Don’t have a public-facing living room window for the Christmas tree? Put it in a bedroom window instead.

Decorate Windows Instead Of Your Yard

Everyone loves outdoor light displays, but you may not be able to set up your own when you’re in a Westfield apartment. When you don’t have outdoor space to add lights to, instead you can decorate your windows.

You can delight the neighbors with lights or place festive wreaths and warm candles in each window. Have the kids create a paper snowflakes chain or set up popular holiday characters peering out. There’s a long history of decorating store windows during the holiday season, so why not add some festive flair your windows at home!
