Enhancing the Entryway for the Holidays

Aside from the overall styling and décor of the Christmas lights on your house, one of the first things that your guests are going to notice and encounter is the entryway of your household. As a result, having an entryway that seems more spacious and well-decorated for the holidays is key in ensuring that your guests are impressed from the moment that they arrive at your home. Here are some easy ways that you can make your entryway look amazing for the holiday months.

Start by uncluttering anything that might be in the area. One of the common mistakes is that people fill these areas with too many lit up decorations or other elements that make the entryway feel cluttered. Your goal should be to provide people with the feeling that there is ample room to stand in around this area. The only decoration you should be opting for should be the presence of your door wreath and possibly some related holiday flowers somewhere near the porch of your entryway. Anything else can distract from the overall style of the area itself.

Consider how you decorate your archway before you decorate it. Another issue is that people commonly put the wrong type of decorations for their arches within this area and it makes the entryway feel smaller than it is. If you don’t have a lot of space, you should opt for using basic garland, which doesn’t have a lot of additional elements provided as decorations or accessories upon the leaves. This way, you keep a classy and minimal effect without allowing your entryway to look completely bare.

If you decide to repaint for the holidays or use any of those popular door covers, consider the color and the style that you are using before you apply them. The problem with these options is that if the wrong color or pattern is used, it can make your front door look huge but detract from the overall size and presence of your entryway. As a result, it looks like you have less space in this area because you have called all of the attention to the door itself. As an alternative to this option, you may want to consider applying garland or other related basic decoration around the door to call attention to it without making it too obvious or overwhelming as a decoration statement.
