The one size fits all oversized Christmas tree just doesn’t work for everyone, but that’s OK because we’re going to take a look at the benefits of skinny Christmas trees.
Why Skinny Christmas Trees?
If you live in small apartment you’ve got to be realistic with your floor space.
Yes, those big Christmas trees look real homely and pretty, but if you haven’t got the floor space… you haven’t got the floor space!
Even if you’re considering somehow squeezing a big tree into your home, do you really want the hassle of moving heavy furniture around?
Listen, this really is one of those instances where size doesn’t matter. You can still enjoy a beautiful, full tree with one of those slim prelit Christmas trees.
And with over 1,000 branch tips on some skinny Christmas trees, you’ll have plenty of people marveling over the look of your tree.
Skinny Christmas trees are made specifically with space constraints in mind and while they don’t possess the same broadness in shape as a wide tree, the narrow build of the branches add a certain air of elegance to your home.
You get a tree with a longer triangular shape that still gives you plenty of space for all your ornaments.
A slim prelit Christmas tree can come pre-decorated with lights or with additional accessories suitable for the holidays. You’ll find a wide range of modern looking trees to suit all tastes.
Skinny Christmas trees look great as the main tree in your living room, but they’re also the perfect size if you want to decorate a guest room for family or friends visiting for the holidays.
The tips of a slim Christmas tree can lie flat out or curve gently on the ends and these tips come in frosted or non frosted variations, depending on whether you like the freshly fallen snow look on your tree.
Either choice you make, your tree will have a realistic look and feel to it.
With skinny prelit Christmas trees you get a choice with the amount of bulbs you can have. They usually come in ranges from 200 all the way through to 650 lights.
Plus the lights are set up in such a way that a single bulb blowout won’t shut off the remaining lights. Replacement bulbs and fuses are included with most models. You can also opt to use a dimmer switch with your slim Christmas tree too.
You’ll find extension cords come included with some of trees and the extension cord usually has a foot control so that you don’t have to bend over to plug or unplug the tree. There are, however, some trees that have remote controls to control the lights, which makes that pretty convenient.
With hinged branches, the overall set up on most slim prelit Christmas trees really is over in a matter of minutes.
And don’t think for a second that buying skinny Christmas trees means you have to give up on height. You can find slim Christmas trees in the same height range as you would the wider ones.
Sometimes it’s fun to break away from the tradition of a green tree so look out for the non-traditional skinny Christmas trees. You can find pre lit trees in bold colors such as red, pink, black or white. Take this Slim Siberian Fir tree for example – stunning!
