Decorating is a great way to get in the holiday spirit. For those living in condos, it may hard to get the full Griswold Christmas experience, but there are things you can do to decorate the inside of your condo.
One important thing to mention here is that as a building resident, it is your responsibility to make sure that all your decorations fall within your association’s guidelines. Associations create these rules for a reason, so be sure to check them before you put up any decorations. For instance, some associations don’t allow any decorations on the condo front doors, on the balconies, or in the windows.
If it’s your first holiday in the building, your neighbors can be a good resource to which decorations are allowed and which aren’t, but keep in mind that your neighbors may also not know about building policies—checking the association rulebook will give you the definitive answer. If decorations are becoming an issue for your building, your association will probably also send out a communication reminder about the rules to follow.
Thankfully, when it comes to the interior of your condo, you have carte blanche to decorate as you wish, as long as you’re not breaking any general electrical or safety regulations.
