Want to take your exterior decorating to the next level this holiday season? Consider transforming your garage doors into Christmas garage doors.
This is a great option for people who have attached garages or garages that are visible from the street. You can use some large, bold garage door decorations to add color, texture and detail while giving a little bit of holiday season flair to your exterior decor. So long as you make sure these decorations go with the rest of your decor and fit with the era and architectural style of your house, they can really add to your display of holiday spirit.
Here are a few examples of some decorations to add to your garage doors this season:
- Garage door covers: These covers can really create a bolt statement, though they can be very expensive and can limit you to a single look. But if you have enough space and a garage door that is in a prominent location, these covers (which can be custom designed in a wide range of holiday themes) can really add some merriment to your seasonal decorations.
- Wreaths: Wreaths are a simple but highly-effective way of decorating for the holiday season. You can line up a bunch of wreaths, set them up in a seasonal formation or use a single, oversized wreath as a large statement piece over the top of your garage door. You can purchase either natural or artificial wreaths. Should you choose artificial, make sure you get one that is fade-resistant, so you’ll be able to use it year after year when it gets constant sun and elemental exposure.
- Lanterns: You can decorate exterior garage lights and lanterns to add a bit of flair to your Christmas decorations. You can drape some greens with berry accents from the hanging lanterns and add a bit of red ribbon or burlap for additional texture. You can also use pre-lit garlands and various baubles depending on the kind of aesthetic you’re trying to create.
- Garlands: You can also create some additional color or texture by placing garlands over your garage doors. You can hang or tack them or simply drape them from overhangs. Whether you go with real garlands or artificial ones, you can easily tear them down once the holiday season is over, and they’re quite easy to set up. For some extra flair, you can intertwine some Christmas lights with them.
- Lights: Of course, exterior lights are probably the most common type of Christmas decoration, and you can find ways to work your garage door (or the front facade of your garage) into the setup. Outline your garage door with lights, or create special displays that highlight your garage.
