Christmas Decorating Ideas for Small Spaces

Christmas Decorating Ideas for Small Spaces

Decorating your home for Christmas is such a joy but it can be a challenge within itself, especially if you only have a small space to work with. We live in a one bedroom flat, just the two of us. It's lovely but it's not great on the storage side of things and it can feel a little cramped at times. Although, that hasn't stopped us from enjoying the festive season and Christmas decorating.

Here's some Christmas decorating ideas for small spaces that have helped me decorate our small apartment...

WREATH DECORATION, FROM FRONT DOOR TO FESTIVE CHEER!


One of the most heart warming decorations to enjoy at Christmas is a festive wreath. Whether you buy a wreath already decorated or decorate it yourself, they're such a delightful, neighbourly sight when you come home at the end of the day. One of my favourite things around this time of year is seeing houses with their festive decorations up, each unique with a personal touch. I don't see why apartments should miss out on that?

I decorated our wreath this year using a wreath kit. I loved every second of getting my creative juices flowing and decorating it exactly how I wanted. Discover my guide, 'How to Decorate a Christmas Wreath' here

OH CHRISTMAS TREE, OH CHRISTMAS TREE


Coming home to the smell of a real Christmas tree is such a privilege but when you have a smaller space, it makes much more sense to invest in an artificial tree that is easy to set up and store each year. We bought ours from B&Q a few years back and it has served us well so far. I must admit, it was one of the most affordable options and it's a bit dark in colour for my liking but it does the job and looks lovely once decorated. To give it a frosted look, I have invested in a snow spray in the past which worked really well. Having a smaller space, we couldn't invest in a proper tree base because we can't store it easily and it would be wasteful not to keep it for years to come. As a solution, I wrap my faux fur blanket around the base. The blanket is light brown in colour, almost replicating soil and is lovely to lay the presents on.

NUTCRACKER NOSTALGIA 


Bringing character and cheekiness are my Christmas nutcrackers. My parents bought us these as a gift and I completely love them! They take me back to being a little girl watching the film 'Barbie In The Nutcracker' on an old school chunky TV. From mini ones to giant ones, just sit them on a shelf or alongside your tree for instant festive fun.

CANDLES FOR FESTIVE AROMAS


When dressing our space for Christmas, I like to consider experience as well as appearance. Although the sight of Christmas decoration ignites such a warm and cosy feeling, the smell of Christmas is equally unbeatable. The warm festive glow and satisfying scents of candles are certainly a key element of festive decor not to be missed.




FESTIVE FLOWER ARRANGEMENTS


Flowers at Christmas are such a delight! Festive greens and deep romantic reds are one of my favourite combinations for this time of year, along with snowy whites and pretty pinecones. Whether they're a centrepiece for your Christmas Day dinner table or a special gift from a loved one, flowers are a very special touch. Seasonally, you'll find most florists combining beautiful roses with bountiful chrysanthemums,  festive foliage and berries at this time of year.
