Holidays Start at the Front Door :: Some Tips for Door Decorating for the Holidays

Note from the host:  I gotta tell ya, I’ve gotten to the point where I read (OK, at least skim) all the press releases I receive.  This is especially true for the communications I receive from this firm . . . especially around this time of year.  Last year we did Holiday Window Decorating (Do’s and Dont’s). So this year let’s take a look instead at the curb appeal welcome of a front door, a post courtesy of Therma-Tru Doors.  Oh and if you have some pins or some pic(k)s, please comment or send our way.  Thanks and enjoy these tips on front door decorating for the holidays! ~jb


Homeowners can help their families and guests get in the holiday spirit right at the front door. Since many people view their entryway as a sign of the quality of their home, and the holidays are the ideal time to show it off.  A festive holiday entry can be the home’s focal point and serve as a first impression for both its interior and exterior.

Experts at Therma-Tru® Corp. offer tips for creating a warm and inviting entryway during the holidays:

Hanging Seasonal Decorations:

Accessorizing Your Doorway:

Painting Your Door:

Some Additional Do’s & Dont’s:

When decorating, be careful to protect your door.  Avoid putting a nail in the face of the door, as this can lead to damage in the future and/or could void your door warranty from the original manufacturer.  Instead, use a door hanger to hang the wreath from the door knocker, or place a tack on the top of the door frame and use clear fishing line to hang the wreath.


In addition to these simple design tips, you may also want to consider taking advantage of this opportunity to update your entryway with a new, energy-efficient door. Fiberglass continues to grow in popularity with homeowners because the doors are easy to maintain and will withstand a wide range of temperatures and weather elements such as strong winds, high-humidity and frequent rain.
