The holidays are here and in full swing! One of the favorite pastimes during this time of year is decorating. If you live in a manufactured home, there are a few tips you can follow to make the most of your decorating efforts. These are some our favorites:

1. Don't go too big with your tree. It’s natural to go for the biggest tree you can find, but choosing a larger than life–or larger than you–spruce will not only take up lots of valuable space, but may also looked crammed in under a lower ceiling height. Stick with a tree that’s around 5 feet tall, and it will look perfectly proportioned to your manufactured home.

2. Try white lights instead of colored ones. Light colors are known to make a room appear larger and less crowded. Choose white string lights instead of brightly colored ones to give a clean and uncluttered look.

3. Frame a mirror in lights. Mirrors are excellent home accessories that can make any room seem bigger and more open. If you're looking for a place to string those new white lights, try framing a larger mirror with them to reflect the light and open up the space.

4. Replace things instead of adding them. As you pull out all your holiday-themed goodies, take the approach of replacing things in your manufactured home instead of adding to them. So, don’t just toss those few themed pillows on the couch. Instead, take off the year-round ones and put them in storage throughout the holidays. Same strategy applies for hand towels, rugs, coffee mugs, and other things you may decorate with this time of year. This simple trick will help you cut down on clutter.

Decorating for the holidays is a fun annual tradition that’s sure to get you in the holiday spirit. Try these tips out for yourself as you decorate this year and enjoy a bright and merry holiday season!
