Deck the Halls with Osgoode Properties: Holiday Decorating Tips for Apartments

  |     |   Apartment Living

"Chestnuts roasting on an open fire, Jack Frost nipping at your nose…" As the familiar melody of holiday songs fills the air, an undeniable sense of warmth and festivity sweeps through the season. Osgoode Properties recognizes the magic that accompanies the “decking of the halls”, so we’re here with a sleigh-full of holiday decorating tips to help you create a festive living space – without compromising on space or style.

Apartment-Friendly Christmas Trees

Let's face it – real Christmas trees can take up a lot of precious floor space, and despite their undeniably charming aroma they can also quickly become a fire hazard (we all forget to water them sometimes!). Opt for a space-saving faux alternative like a slim or corner Christmas tree that fits seamlessly into your cozy abode. Wall-mounted or tabletop trees are also fantastic choices for those who truly want to maximize every inch of space without compromising on holiday spirit.

Wreaths for Every Door

Wreaths, those iconic symbols of holiday cheer, are a timeless and elegant way to adorn your apartment doors without intruding on your living space. Hang a wreath on your front door, bedroom door, or even inside as a centrepiece for your apartment. They add a touch of festive charm without cluttering your limited space. Pro tip: Use a wreath as a centrepiece on your dining table for Christmas dinner, topped off with some faux candles and a few baubles that sparkle.

Command Hooks: The Unsung Holiday Decorating Heroes

If they aren’t already, Command hooks will quickly become your new best friends in holiday decorating. These versatile hooks are a game-changer for apartment dwellers (step away from the hammer and nails!). Hang your stockings, lights, and ornaments without leaving a mark on your walls. They're easy to apply and remove, making them a renter's dream for temporary decorations.

Twinkling Lights to Set the Mood

Create a cozy ambiance with indoor Christmas lights or string twinkle lights. Drape them over curtain rods, along shelves, or around mirrors to add a warm and enchanting glow to your apartment. The soft lighting will make your space feel festive without overwhelming it. Add to the ambiance with some holiday-scented candles – think pine, spicy vanilla, or peppermint. Arrange candles of varying heights on coffee tables or countertops, letting the flickering flames cast an intimate glow.

Double Delight with Multifunctional Decor

Make the most out of your holiday decorations by choosing items that serve multiple purposes. For example, use decorative storage bins or festive baskets to declutter your space and add a touch of holiday charm. Multi-functional decor is the secret to maintaining a stylish and organized apartment during the holidays.

DIY Decor for a Personal Touch

Get crafty with it! DIY decorations that reflect your personal style can be so much fun to make. Create your own garlands by mixing and matching materials like pinecones, twine, and festive beads to create an eye-catching display. Drape them over doorways, along window sills, or even on your holiday tree. Gather friends and family for a festive ornament-making session. From painted bulbs to personalized keepsakes, each ornament becomes a cherished memory.
