We’ve probably never looked forward to Christmas as much as we do this year. As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, people are anxiously waiting for a much-needed break that helps them reconnect with their loved ones, take some time off, and unwind.
If you’re ready to get into the holiday spirit, make sure your home reflects your passion for the Christmas festivities! Start by giving your entryway a beautiful holiday-themed makeover. Here are some tips to help you kick things off!
1. You Can’t Go Wrong with Christmas Trees and Life-Size Toy Soldiers
Deck your exterior entryway out with Christmas trees, life-size toy soldiers, a holiday-themed doormat, and a pair of fresh flower wreaths to spark Christmas joy! Before you get started with the décor, make sure your entry doors look the part. We suggest indulging in a pair of arched iron front doors that add a touch of glamour, sophistication, and serenity to your home. You can experiment with different styles, sizes, and glass to find the perfect portals for your property.
We suggest opting for low-e (low emissivity) glass doors to increase the overall energy efficiency of your home. Low-e glass doors reflect winter heat inside, resulting in warmer interior spaces. During hot, summer months, they reflect UV light and summer heat outside while allowing visible light to pass through. This results in cooler interior spaces. Their dual properties make them an excellent solution for every season.
You can also experiment with gorgeous new glass designs like flemish, ribbed, rain, frost, aquatex, and tea. Opt for unique designs to spruce up your property in time for the holidays!
2. Opt for Ornate Scrollwork
Give your regular front doors a grand makeover by indulging in a pair of stunning wrought iron entry doors with intricate scrollwork. Not only will your exterior entryway appear more regal and luxurious, but you’ll also manage to sprinkle some Christmas dust over your property. Ornate scrollwork screams festivity!
If you’re willing to go the extra mile, indulge in a pair of larger-than-life toy soldiers that breathe life into your entryway. In addition, opt for holiday-themed fir wreaths with red and gold baubles, Christmas pine cones, ribbons, and garlands. Top the makeover off with a holiday-themed doormat that reads “merry” and gorgeous Christmas lights.
3. Transform Your Interior Entryway into a Winter Wonderland
While sprucing up your exterior entryway is important, make sure you give your interior entryway some holiday TLC too! If your home is decked out in modern and minimalist décor, you already have a head start. Transform your space into a gorgeous winter wonderland by indulging in frosty, minimalistic Christmas-themed accessories that complement the overall design of your space.
Opt for mini-sized Christmas trees, flower wreaths, garlands, reindeer, candy canes, stockings, and snow globes. Make sure you choose the classic Christmas colors (red, green, and white) to avoid going overboard. Focus on white to retain the minimalistic ambiance of your space.
This interior makeover is perfect for homes that feature a classic Dutch door. As the door of choice for the holidays, Dutch doors add a touch of festiveness to interior spaces.
4. Tall Potted Christmas Trees
If you’re not too fond of decking your entryway out with large Christmas trees, you can easily downsize without worrying about the aesthetic appeal. Smaller Christmas trees look just as gorgeous, provided that they’re styled and placed strategically.
Opt for tall pots to make small- to mid-sized Christmas trees appear more noticeable. We suggest choosing black pots to complement the matte black finishing of your iron entry doors or black steel front doors. You can also add a special touch to your entryway by placing winter boots and wicker/rattan baskets next to one of the tall pots.
Feel free to think outside the box and let your creative juices flow! You have free rein; don’t shy away from coming up with unique ideas. Nobody knows your entryway better than you do. So if an idea sounds conventionally odd but makes sense for your property, make sure you give it a go!
5. Fiery Red Flower Wreaths
Red is the superior Christmas color. We may hate to admit it, but it’s true! Indulge in a pair of gorgeous flower wreaths with vibrant pops of red! Here’s how you can make this trick work well. Keep the rest of your entryway fairly neutral for the most part. Opt for muted shades of green and white that don’t stand out. As you incorporate red into the space, it’ll instantly catch the eye and make your entryway appear revitalized.
