Little surprise! 10 Best Christmas Light Ideas for Small Spaces！
Feeling a bit envious of your neighbor's seemingly giant home that's decked out for the holidays? Don't be! Small spaces can incorporate classic Christmas decor, especially lights, with the same flair.
1 GO RETRO WITH A STATEMENT SIGN
Add a dose of retro glam to your space by taking the lights to the walls in a colorful light-up headboard. Glitter and a glow make for the perfect focal point in any holiday-themed room.
2 PAINT TYPICAL HOLIDAY LIGHTS GOLD
Even if you only have space for a few lights in your apartment, you can seriously kick up their style by spray-painting the cord and bulb-holders in matte gold to complement the rest of your holiday decor.
3 CUSHION YOUR FOOD WITH LIGHTS
Situate illuminated garland around your showcased dishes, or place a lit garland runner in the center of your table to brighten your dinner or hors d'oeuvre spread.
4 CREATE A HOMEY GLOW
What better for a small space than a mini village? This stunning 3D paper christmas village is easy to create and are illuminated by flickering LED lights.
5 DRESS UP THE LIGHTING YOU ALREADY HAVE
There's no better way to save space than to build upon the lighting you already have. Drape evergreen branches around a hanging light fixture, and awe guests as the light bounces through the branches and onto the dining room table in cheery seasonal style.
6 INCORPORATE ALTERNATIVE LIGHTING
Christmas lights don't have to be the only source of brightness in your holiday-themed home. Scour your hardware store for hanging bulbs, and pair with plenty of seasonal greenery for an off-beat approach to holiday decor.
7 HANG ONE STRING OF LIGHTS ABOVE THE MANTLE
Opt for a minimalistic theme in your small space (too many colors or patterns will just make it look smaller) and thread a single strand of lights above your mantle. It's just enough light to illuminate your stockings and the presents under the tree.
8 BRIGHTEN A SMALL CHRISTMAS TREE
Even if you don't have room for a full-size tree, illuminating just a small Christmas tree can bring a pop of joy to the room. Bonus points if you add presents — their shiny wrapping will bounce the light in playful anticipation for the holidays.
9 SHOWCASE ONE EYE-CATCHING PIECE
In a small space, just one staple item can make the entire room feel festive. Hang an illuminated piece, like this star silhouette light, on a blank wall to make a big statement without taking up much space.
10 TAKE THE HOLIDAY CHEER OUTSIDE
Absolutely no space left inside? If you live in a warm climate, take the lights out to your terrace. You could even consider collaborating with a neighbor for a house-to-house string of lights.
