How To Make Your Windows And Doors Merry And Bright

Windows at Christmas

With Christmas fast approaching, it’s time to ensure your home is ready for the festivities.

For many of us, this means putting up your Christmas tree and displaying a few cards around your house. But there is a lot more work to be done to truly get our homes into the spirit of Christmas.

Apart from a wreath on the front door, windows and doors are often overlooked when decorating for Christmas.

But don’t worry! ERG Scotland has got you covered with ideas on how to bring the festive cheer to your windows and doors.

Christmas wreath

Wreaths on windows too

This year, add Christmas wreaths to each one of your windows for a classic twist on the traditional door wreath. 

This is a common decorating trend in the United States and it is only a matter of time before it makes it over here.

Choose a unified design and tie some red ribbon around each wreath for an extra special statement. Your neighbours will love passing the most festive house on the street!

Christmas lights

Candles, fairy lights and lanterns everywhere

Christmas isn’t the same without twinkling lights! 

Lights and candles are an affordable way to make your home feel extra cosy and warm with minimal effort.

Drape fairy lights around windows, place lanterns in doorways and place candles on windowsills. For a fun Christmas countdown, why not light an advent candle each night and let the excitement build?

Ornaments on windows

Christmas ornaments on windowsills

Your windowsills are the ideal place to showcase the festive ornaments you have collected over the years.

Whether it’s Father Christmas in his sleigh, a musical snowman or a traditional nativity scene, they will certainly bring a smile to your many guests over the festive period.

If you’re a plant lover, poinsettias are the perfect festive houseplant to add to your windowsill too. As the official Christmas plant, they will add a vibrant, Christmas red colour to your home.

Unfortunately, poinsettias’ leaves drop when they feel a draft. Keep your poinsettias looking fresh all season by replacing your drafty windows and doors. Request a FREE QUOTE for new windows and doors here.
