Flat Christmas Trees

Updated

A flat Christmas tree means that you won’t have to give up on your dream decorations even if your living room is on the small side. You can find both half-size and corner models as well as quirkier takes on this idea, so start by identifying the right spot for yours and then measuring its width. As for height, we recommend leaving at least 6” between your ceiling and the top of your flat tree or its topper.

Designer Advice:

When choosing a flat Christmas tree with lights, keep in mind that their glow will already make up one of the colors in its palette. To maintain a tasteful and balanced feel when decorating it, consider basing the rest of your ornaments around two other hues.

This 3’ flat Christmas tree will delight you with some Nordic charm. It also gives you full decorative control since it doesn’t include any lights or snowy finishes, which is ideal if you prefer to focus on traditional ornaments.

Designer Advice:

Sticking to a particularly small flat model is a more logical choice if your living room already feels a little cramped or if you simply don’t want your Christmas tree to tower over the rest of your furniture. Be sure to avoid a cluttered feel by using your ornaments sparingly and wisely when decorating such a small tree.

Buying Guide

The best way to decorate a flat back Christmas tree is to keep it simple. If you’ve opted for this type of Christmas tree, you may have a smaller space. It’s therefore important to avoid overwhelming your space by piling too much on your tree—otherwise you risk negating the benefits of a flat back tree.

Start by fluffing out the branches as much as you can to increase the natural, full look of your tree. Add a strand of lights and two to three strands of decorative tinsel, berries, or popcorn. Finally, add on 20-30 Christmas ornaments to finish off your tree’s look.

If, on the contrary, you’d like to make your flat back Christmas tree look fuller, you should go in the opposite direction with a decoration overload: as well as balls and baubles, consider adding a few ribbons and tinsel.

Dangling ornaments are especially handy when it comes to giving your flat back Christmas tree a fuller look.
