4 Ways to Score the Best Christmas Tree for Your Space
Make the right purchase with the help of these reminders
Over the years, we have seen numerous kinds of trees in stores. Name it and we have it—from towering ones to charming, collapsible pieces. If you think about it, you can get any tree that you can easily decorate and style. However, you also need to keep in mind its quality and if it can still be used after five years.
If you're planning to buy a new tree for your space, here are four must-read tips to guide you:
Measure the height of your room
Where do you intend to place the tree? The ideal height of the tree should be three-fourths the height of your ceiling.
Opt for a medium-girth tree with thick foliage
Make sure that proportion is right and keep in mind that medium trees will never go out of style.

Be ready to invest
Get one that will last at least five years. The one-piece tree with the branches attached and clipped for storage is the best, as plastic imitation spruce with detachable leaves are hard to maintain and get brittle in time. Buy trees whose leaves are closest to its natural color.
Consider where you can store it
Proper storage for the ten months the tree is not in use will make it last longer.
