Oh Christmas Tree! Choosing the Best Christmas Tree for Your Space


whiteandgoldchristmastable.jpg

The cups at Starbucks have turned that famous reddish hue, which means only one thing – it’s time to start thinking about Christmas decorations. So get that dusty box out from the top shelf and untangle those fairy lights, because it’s time to deck the halls with boughs of holly. 

Fairy lights and holly are all fine and well, but we all know that the Christmas tree is the Christmas decoration that owns the crown of glory. This is the main event. It’s where the family congregates to do the initial decorating, where all the presents hang out until they are ready to be opened, and if you happen to live in a 1990s American family sitcom, it will be where you sit around laughing at the end of the Christmas episode. 

But like the Christmas trees themselves, not all spaces where they fit are created equal. Some homes have a foyer where they can display an eight-foot imitation Douglas fir. Most homes will opt for something a bit more modest to fit into the corner of the living room, while students might only have space for a teeny-tiny tree in the corner of their studio apartment, or even just a tabletop ornament. When shopping for a Christmas tree, it is important to find one that fits well into the space you have allocated for it. An eight-foot behemoth would look mighty strange in a studio apartment, and a two-foot tree would raise a few eyebrows if placed in the hallway of a mansion. 

When choosing the perfect Christmas tree for your space, you are going to have to rely somewhat on your judgment. We all want a sizeable Christmas tree that’s going to look fabulous in the background of a family Christmas card, but you have to be realistic. No amount of quaint family pictures is going to make up for the inconvenience of having a tree that is so large that you have to pull a Catherine Zeta-Jones a la Entrapment to get around your apartment. If you’ve got a corner or a bay window for your Christmas tree to fit into, you need to give it some breathing room. We recommend about 30cm away from the wall on either side, and enough space to conduct your usual household business in front of it. And remember to leave space around the base for the presents. The perfect Christmas tree should enhance your home, not inhibit it. If space isn’t a luxury you can afford in your home, that doesn’t mean that you need to forgo the tinsel-induced cheer. Smaller Christmas trees of about one metre high are readily available, and if that’s even too much of an ask, you can get a mini one to place on a side table. These mini trees often come with built in LED lighting because a full string of fairy lights would be too much for the little guy to handle. 

Whatever your festive needs, there is a tree out there for you. Just measure your space and use your discretion.
