With just a week left to November, it’ll be time to start bringing out Christmas ornaments, decorations, lights, and so forth. But with limited space and restrictive rules, decorating this Christmas might be a bit of a challenge for many people, especially those who own or rent out condos. There are still many ways to make your condo look holiday-ready. Get creative. Sticking to the holiday colour scheme of red, green and gold will already go a long way. Using simple accessories like ribbons, candles or stockings are also easy ways to transform your home.
Of course, the Christmas tree is the most important part of the holiday tradition. Large trees are often not suited for the condo space. But, here are a few alternatives:
1- Who says ornaments are just for trees? Try hanging them from the ceiling or placing them around the house in small trays. Choose triangular shaped trays that are reminiscent of that evergreen.
2- Use real branches and pines to give your space that “forest” feel. Place them on counters or hang them up. Don’t forget, you can also decorate them!
3- Find small plants which you can also decorate. It doesn’t have to be a small pine. You can also opt for a plant with longer branches or even a cactus!
4- Hang mistletoe or wreaths on doors.
5- Try putting Chritmas lights around windows.
With the December just around the corner, get your condo holiday ready just in time for all those christmas parties and in-law visits!
