Decorating Your Custom Door For the Holidays

Your front door says so much about you!  It welcomes your guests, but it also is a beacon when you arrive at your home… signaling that you’re home safe and sound. That is the reason why you selected a door that reflects the personality of the home. A fine custom door deserves the best this holiday season!  Whether your sense of decorating and flair leans towards rustic and simple, or grand and extravagant, dress your door up and welcome guests in style!

Just a few touches of holiday greenery can add the perfect look to your custom door! Here, a simply decorated Christmas tree and a lovely door wreath are highlighted by a poinsettia and a jar of winter preserves on little benches. The star made of greenery, pine cones, and berries completes the arrangement. This simple, scaled down farmhouse look gives a real “down-home” feeling to your Custom door!

With a little greenery in the form of a swag over the door, and a wreath, this homeowner dressed up a simple door, and added some “presents” and boots from you-know-who!  This humble décor speaks volumes about the spirit of the season, showing that you don’t have to have a complicated design, or go all out… unless you want to! 

Whether your custom door is attached to a custom home, or something a bit simpler, if you are a fan of grand and gala decorations, your custom door will look gorgeous with some lavish holiday décor. 
There are no rules, so pour on the grand festive look!

This multi-layered Christmas display is gorgeous, and really shows off the entrance to the home. Notice the little trees trimmed in red ball ornaments on either side of the steps. The columns are beautifully wrapped in garland, and the door frame is trimmed in garland as well. The draped garland at the top of the garland looks great decorated in red and white!  The door wreath and old sled remind us of Christmases past, and the lanterns light the way!  Beautiful, and classy!

If you’re looking to escape the traditional red and green Christmas theme, but still wanting to dress up the door for the holidays, consider using other colors to adorn your custom doorway.

This family has used a striking dark blue to give a majestic look to their entryway. They’ve incorporated opulent gold and silver ornaments, which look great with the blue accents.
