The holidays are quickly approaching, and most people are putting out the last of their Christmas decorations. If you have a security screen door on your home or business, you may want to incorporate it into your design. Here are some door decorating tips and tricks, courtesy of Iron Clad Security Doors in Michigan.
Hang A Wreath On The Door
Wreaths are the simplest and most universal holiday door decorations out there. You can get them in a wide variety of colors, or you could make one on your own. Traditional over-the-door wreath hangers may not work on all security doors, but that doesn’t mean you have to give up on this idea. Place a Command hook on the front of the door wherever you want to hang the wreath. Just make sure you have a cord or wire on the wreath that you can latch onto the hook. When you take down your decorations, you can pull the Command strip off without any damage on your door.
Add Lights And Greenery
You can add lights and greenery to your front porch to complement your wreath or the Christmas tree in your window. Use garland to frame your widows or your security screen door, and add other strips of garland on your porch rails or columns. You can top this off with bows, outdoor Christmas ornaments, or any other design elements you like. If you’re going to use lights though, make sure there is a plug accessible to attach them to. Plan everything out before you start hanging your holiday décor.
Use A Laser Light To Highlight The Porch
Laser lights have become a popular staple in yard décor because they are easy to install and they create beautiful displays on a building. If you want to draw attention to your decorative security door, you can point a laser light in that direction. Of course, that light will shine into your home or office at night, so keep that in mind when you’re planning the placement. You can set up multiple lights to point in different directions, and you can even get lights with holiday-themed filters on them. The possibilities are endless as long as you have someone to stake the light into the ground.
Think About Snowfall When Planning Your Decorations
No matter how you choose to decorate your porch and security door for Christmas, keep in mind the snowfall that Michigan experiences in the winter. If your porch receives a lot of wind-driven snow, some elements may get covered up during a big storm. If your roof extends far enough to protect your porch from snow, you can do just about anything you want to decorate it. As long as you consider all of these factors, you can create a gorgeous display just in time for the holidays.
