Christmastime is here once again! Usually, we would enjoy going out of our homes around this time to feel the holiday vibe through the colorful decorations we see in malls and parks all over the city. But sadly, because of our current situation, we have to stay at home for the health and safety of our families.
That, however, does not mean we can’t revel in the beauty of Christmas decorations at home — especially if you live in a condominium.
Here are some ways you can make your condo feel more Christmas-y with decorating ideas that let you maximize precious space:
Set the mood with fairy lights
Twinkling lights and warm indoor lighting help give off that cozy Christmas Eve feel in your home. Even though we don’t get snowy Christmas evenings here in the Philippines, you can still get that vibe out of your home decor.
Yellow or white fairy lights are always a good investment because you can also use them to decorate your home all year round. Multi-colored Christmas lights are good, too, depending on the theme or look you’re going for with your decor.
Create a Christmas nook
The limited space inside a condo always poses a challenge for the holiday decor lover. The way to deal with this without making your condo look overcrowded and tacky is to designate a specific area to put in your Christmas baubles. It could be a table, shelf, a blank portion on your wall or a little corner in your condo that you can turn into a Christmas nook.
Start off by picking a theme that matches the overall aesthetic of your home. Then, get manageable-sized pieces of decor that go along with your theme. You can also go rustic and mix together old decorative pieces with new ones.
Put them all together and add some lighting to make it more festive.
Get a Christmas Tree in tiny
No space for a large Christmas tree in your condo? Don’t fret. Miniature Christmas trees look just as festive as life-size ones, if not even more chic.

Use holiday-themed fabrics
If you’re not keen on adding more decor to your condo because perhaps it makes you feel like the place is cluttered, you can opt to switch up your furnishings and fittings instead.
Get holiday-themed pillows, curtains, blankets, rugs, and table runners to bring a bit of Christmas spirit into your home.
Invest in Christmas-themed dinnerware
Christmas, of course, is all about spending time with your loved ones and what better way to do it than bond over a good meal?
Make your Christmas dinners even more fun and festive with gorgeous tableware and an elegant setup.
With these easy tricks, you can feel the Christmas spirit right in your condo while overlooking breathtaking views of the city.
