Choosing the perfect artificial Christmas tree can be a daunting task, especially if you really have no idea what would work best for you. First you need to decide where you want to put the tree. If you have limited space you will want to consider a smaller tree that doesn't take up too much space. You don't want the tree to overwhelm the room it is in. If you live in a small apartment or house then a four to five foot tree may work best for you simply because its size will not be too much for a small area.
If you have a large space to work with then a larger tree would be an obvious choice. If you have a small tree in a large space, the tree can get lost in the space and you don't want that to happen. You want your tree to be a focal point in the room, not a tree that disappears because it's too small. If you have high ceilings you can pick an even taller tree than you would if your home had standard size ceilings. Artificial Christmas trees can be slim or wide and again, you won't want to get a very wide tree if you have a very narrow space to put it.
In addition, you will want to take into consideration the price of an artificial tree. The more expensive the tree the longer it will last and the more realistic it appears.
