When the new year comes around and the holiday season ends, taking down your holiday décor can be a chore. Putting everything away can be even more difficult when you live in an apartment with limited space. Thankfully, the apartment living experts at HILLS are here to share holiday storage tips to help you save space and keep your apartment or home tidy.
Tips for Holiday Decoration Storage
1. Invest in efficient storage containers.
The first step toward efficient Christmas décor storage is purchasing storage containers. We recommend using plastic or cloth containers, which can be reused for several years, rather than cardboard boxes, which don’t hold up as long.
An essential part of choosing storage containers for seasonal storage is selecting the right sizes for the items you plan on storing. For Christmas tree ornaments and other fragile items, choose a wide, short container. That way, the ornaments don’t have room to jostle around and break. For ornament storage, you can also try a container with a divider grid that holds each ornament in place. For non-fragile items, choose larger containers that can fit a lot of items.
2. Try under-bed storage to save space.
If you simply don’t have room in your closets for all your Christmas decorations, consider under-bed storage containers, which you can keep until you need them again. Worried about guests seeing the storage containers under your bed? Try using a bed skirt to conceal them.
3. Wrap fragile items carefully.
This tip may be obvious, but a quick reminder doesn’t hurt: Be careful with fragile items! Nothing can put a damper on holiday spirit like pulling out your family’s one-of-a-kind decorations and discovering they’ve shattered or chipped.
The key to packing fragile items is eliminating extra space in the containers or boxes you use. When glassware or other delicate items have space to rattle around in boxes, they’re much more likely to break. Fill the space in boxes with cushioning from packing materials, like packing peanuts or packing pillows, or use crumpled newspaper for a more sustainable option.
4. Use vertical space in closets.
Are you using all the space in your closets? Probably not. Most of the time, we forget to use all the vertical space available to us. Try installing shelving or cube organizers in your closets so you can really take advantage of every inch of closet space you have.
