How to Decorate Your Apartment for the Holidays: Tips and Tricks

  |     |   Apartment Decorating Tips, Uncategorized

The holidays are coming up, which means it's time to get your apartment ready for the season! Whether you're hosting guests or just want to make your space feel extra festive, there are plenty of ways to decorate. Here, we have some great tips and tricks on how you can decorate your Westchester apartment for the holidays. 

 

Take Time To Plan 

We know it’s the holiday season, but with so many distractions and obligations on your plate (and in your email inbox), it can be hard to find time for all of the things you want to do. And while we certainly don’t want this post to add more work or stress into an already full schedule, we would like to offer a little advice that may make the holiday rush less stressful – start by doing the most important tasks first. If you take care of the crucial activities first, then everything else will fall into place much more easily! So what are those essential tasks? Planning and buying decor goes without saying. 

The first thing you should do when decorating your apartment is to create a plan for how and where you want everything. If you can sketch out what it will look like, chances are good that the end result will be better than if you just keep moving things around until they "look right." The next thing to think about is scale. You need plenty of breathing room between furniture pieces so that people can walk through comfortably. Are you going to be hosting any large get-togethers or Christmas parties? Or will you just be spending time with a few loved ones? Perhaps you will be out of town for Christmas and just want to spruce up your living space for the month of December. Whatever your plans are, be sure to take them into consideration. 

 

Make A List 

Next, you'll want to make a list of what you want for your apartment – whether that's stocking up on some new decorations or just plugging in the tree lights! Before you shop, assess the holiday items you already own and get an idea of the type of vibe and aesthetic you desire. Once you've brainstormed a basic idea of what you want, decorate your home making the best use of all the items you already own, then create a list of all the things you need to buy. You don't even necessarily need to use premade Christmas decorations. Instead, try using things like ribbons, old books, and photos from past holidays to create something new. Make sure you stick to the list when you go shopping; this will help you avoid dwindling your precious Christmas present money. 

Take full advantage of the scents that come with winter by using candles around the house for an evening-long ambiance without any fire hazard risks. Light up some cinnamon sticks to fill up your kitchen or living room with their comforting scent while preparing dinner—or use them as potpourri during family gatherings! If you want to add one final touch before guests arrive at your door (and they're sure to smell it!) try simmering orange peels in water for a fresh and energizing scent. 

Prioritize What Needs To Be Done 

We hope you’ve found some inspiration for your holiday decorating and that we were able to show you a few new tricks. Remember, the most important thing is to take care of all tasks in order, starting with what matters most first. Once that's done, it'll be easy to plan out the rest of your decorations using one or two focal points as an anchor. It can also help if you sketch them lightly on paper first before adding any final touches! Finally, make sure to add festive scents throughout your luxury apartment, including candles, scented oils, or potpourri in bowls of water. Now go forth and celebrate this wonderful season!
