For those who celebrate Christmas, it’s now the time to start planning for your Christmas tree! Decorating for the holidays is always a fun, exciting activity. But every year, it seems we underestimate the amount of space we have to deck the halls. So, read on for a few quick tips for setting up a Christmas tree in your apartment.
Choose a Spot
Before you go out and cut down the perfect tree, make sure you already have a spot in mind. This is going to be your focal point for the room. Your decorations should center here; a tree should always be the main focus. If you plan to place your tree near any furniture, measure the space to make sure you don’t cut down a tree that’s too large.
It’s possible that you will have to rearrange some furniture in order to fit your tree within the room. In order to make this process less complicated, you should have the space cleared before you bring the tree home. Arranging furniture after the fact can be a hassle. You can always move furniture back into place if you find you want your tree tucked away in a corner.
Don’t be Afraid to Downsize
Despite what we truly envision, sometimes our spaces are simply not large enough to accommodate a full-sized tree. You may have to consider downsizing your chosen tree in order to fit it in. While you don’t have to settle for a tiny fern, you could always search the tree farm for a much smaller variety. Some farms provide trees specifically grown for apartment dwellers. Check out multiple farms before you decide on a tree size.
