When it comes to decorating the home, space (or rather lack of) is one obstacle we often have to face, and it's no different when it comes to decking out our living space for the festive season. So what's the solution? A slim Christmas tree, of course.
When you're limited in space, you could opt for a small Christmas tree (which is ideal to prop up on a table), but height isn't really the issue here, it's the diameter. Pencil trees are ideal space-savers, as are the debatable half Christmas trees, but it could also pay to 'go vertical' and there are some alternative Christmas tree designs that will enable you to do just that.
