It’s that wonderful time of the year, the winter holiday season, and that means it’s time to start decorating!
Decorating has become many people’s favourite thing about the winter holiday season. Whether it be setting up your Christmas tree or creating a winter wonderland on your home exterior, now you might not want to go as extreme as the Griswold’s so Kempenfelt Windows & Doors put together some helpful tips to help give your home some extra Dazzle this holiday season.

Pick Your Decor
Now that you have your theme, it’s time to choose the decorations you want to use. Think about all the spots you would like to decorate, and find items to match those areas. Let’s discuss a few of the more common decorations people use.
Lights: Holiday lights have become a huge part of decorating your home outdoors. Many people will wrap lights around their front door, outside your windows, garage door and the roof, trees in the front yard or will buy items that have lights built-in, like light-up deers or inflatable Santa’s. One new decoration that has become really popular as they are super easy to set up is the Christmas light projectors; all you need to do is point them in the direction of your house, and they light up a large area.
Holiday Wreath: Wreaths are a timeless classic and offer many different variations, so you can find the perfect wreath to fit your theme whether real or artificial. Just be sure when hanging your wreath to leave space on either side to avoid damage when opening and closing your door.
Holiday Garland: Using garland is a great way to transform your front door, windows, or garage door with beautiful Christmas greenery. They are often made out of artificial products but are made to look very realistic, which is fantastic as they can be reused every year.
It’s important to think carefully about how to place all your wonderful holiday decorations. You want to ensure that they can be easily seen but are not in the way of your day-to-day life, as you won’t have to move things around every day.
Light em Up
The last and most fun step is to light up your decorations and witness the magical wonderland you’ve created outside of your home. Ensure that all lighting wiring is concealed, so no accidents happen. Look around to see if there are any spots left untouched where you might want to add lights. Once you are sure you’ve got everything covered, gather your family and light up the house together.
