Christmas Decorating Ideas For Small Spaces

If you have limited space in your home, you know that it’s all about maximising it, so that it seems more spacious than it actually is, with every inch really counting. With the festive season upon us, it’s natural to want to impress friends and family with an array of decorations to add a seasonal welcome. In this month’s blog from Style My Home, leading interior designers throughout Kent and Sussex, we give you lots of ideas so that you can get creative and spread that Christmas cheer throughout your home. You can read out top tips and look at the fabulous decorations that we have found in the stores and online.

No Need To Downsize On Your Festive Ideas

Windows are the perfect backdrop for decorations, including frosting your windows, adding snowflakes, wreaths, ornaments and small decorative lights. One thing that shouldn’t be forgotten is creating those special Christmas fragrances, from the smell of mulled wine simmering on the stove, cinnamon candles and the scents of pine forests, oranges and cloves. Miniature trees decorated with your favourite ornaments are really effective and create festive displays on furniture including coffee tables, dressers and side tables. With a lack of space, don’t forget the kitchen, as bows and greenery on cabinets can look really attractive and decorate shelves and coat hooks.

Top Tips From Style My Home

  • Seasonal flower arrangements
  • Festive candle holders
  • Poinsettias to create bold colour
  • Hang snowflakes, mistletoe and other decorations from ceilings
  • Add festive interest to shelves and furniture tops
  • Have a small tree, festive branch, greenery or micro trees
  • Dress chairs and the table
  • Use festive cushions, table cloths and throws


Just because you do live in a small space doesn’t mean that you can’t deck the halls with boughs of holly. Be creative and use your imagination to design your space so that it doesn’t look cluttered using walls, ceilings, windows, sills, mantelpieces and furniture tops.
