Decorating for the Holidays: Three Tips for Renters

For many people, the holidays represent the most wonderful time of the year. For others, though, the weeks between Thanksgiving and New Years Eve are some of the most stressful on the calendar. Decorating can help get even the most unenthusiastic Scrooge in the mood for celebrations, but they often leave permanent damage to the apartment in their wake. Scott Safadi of Cal Bay Property Management encourages you to share these decor tips with your tenants to preserve your property and spread cheer.

 

It's Not Christmas Without a Tree

Christmas trees are beautiful, but they can be a pain. Real trees are pretty and smell great, but they ooze sap and can easily topple over if a curious pet gets too close. Artificial trees are nice too, but they can be pricey and annoying to pack up into a box year after year. If your residents are looking for an easy way to bring a little Christmas cheer to their apartment, recommend a small table top tree instead. Don't have ornaments? Go even simpler with a simple poinsettia.

 

Light it Up

From candles to Christmas lights, illumination is a must for holiday decor. If your tenants are concerned about the labor involved in putting up strings of Christmas lights, though, encourage them to start small by lacing a strand or two around their porch railing or banister. Scented candles are even easier to embrace and can bring another layer of sensory cheer to a rental during the holiday season.

 

Encourage Warmth

Even if you're not expecting a white Christmas, the holidays are all about coziness. Embrace the urge to hibernate and fill your space with warm colors and fabrics. Hang stockings, build a fire in the fireplace, and break out the blankets to cozy up with on the couch. Even if your tenants don't directly embrace the Christmas spirit, just about everyone can embrace the warmth and coziness of the winter months.
