Space Saving Flat Back Christmas Tree

Christmas Tree mounted on the wall

When floor space is limited, but you still want to have a nice Christmas tree to add some festive sparkle to the room, you need a flat back Christmas tree.

Basically, these are Christmas trees that look like they have been cut in half length-ways. As they are designed to sit flat against the wall, they don't take up much room, or do they pose as a tripping hazard.

Very sell the 6ft Space Saving Half Christmas Tree* for just £39.99, and it's ideal for smaller living rooms. Wilko also have a 6ft Half Flocked Artificial Christmas Tree* for £50, plus there's 20% off with code TREE20 for a limited time, making it £40.

You can also get wall mounted ones* on eBay Store: shopmonkltd for £22.99 delivered, or Studio have this LED Wall Christmas Tree* for just £24.99.

Not only do these ones look great, but they don't take up floor space, and they stay out of the reach of kids.

Half Christmas Tree

Snowy and green half Christmas trees

If you've got pets or cats, then you'll know very well of the problems involving the Christmas tree. It's far too tempting for little hands and paws to grab the decorations. This can lead to accidents and breakages - avoid the drama and get yourself a half Christmas tree.

What's a half Christmas tree you ask? Well, it's one that has no branches in the bottom half, so that there's plenty of space at the bottom. This is also great for those of you that like to put all of the presents under the tree.

Asda are the cheapest, with this 6ft Green Half Christmas Tree* on sale for only £20, and this 6ft Green Snowy Half Christmas Tree* for just £25.

Argos sell two different kinds; Argos Home 6ft Half Parasol Christmas Tree - Green*at £45 and the beautiful Argos Home 6ft Snowy Half Christmas Tree* for £50.

Pencil Christmas Tree

Another way to save space is to opt for a pencil Christmas tree. As the name suggests, these are slender trees that really don't take up much room at all.

They have a distinct modern look too, so they can look really striking in a the right setting. Even though they are thin, they are also tall and don't even need decorated if you don't want to.

Many retailers sell pencil Christmas trees, but this 6.5ft Slim Flocked Alaskan Pine Christmas Tree at £39.99 from The Range is a head-turner. By far the cheapest is this Unlit Green Pencil Christmas Tree* from Studio at only £14.99, though this 6ft Green Snowy Slim Tree* is beautiful and great value at £25.

Rainbow Christmas Tree

Rainbow Christmas Tree from Asda and Wilko

Last year saw John Lewis & Partners launch the first Rainbow Christmas Tree in the UK, but it wasn't exactly cheap. This year more retailers are joining in with the rainbow theme, and thankfully they're much more reasonably priced. The lowest price is this 5ft Slim Rainbow Artificial Christmas Tree* from Wilko at £30, or £24 with the code TREE20 for a limited time. The Argos Rainbow Christmas Tree* comes in at £35, and Asda also have this more luxurious looking Multi Coloured 5FT Rainbow Fir Tree*, though it does cost more at £50.

Pink Christmas Tree

Sometimes traditional just ain't you, when that's the case, you need a pink Christmas tree. Argos sell a the Home 4ft Christmas Tree* and it's an awesome "Pink" colour. It's very reasonably priced at just £12.99.

Upside Down Christmas Tree
