Decorating your home for Christmas instantly makes your space feel warm, cozy, and magical. You spend hours decorating the inside of your home, but what about the outside? Do you have a deck or a porch that could use a holiday makeover? Here are some fun ideas for making your outdoor space feel as festive as the rest of your home.
Adding white lights and fake snowmen to your deck or porch can transform your space into a winter wonderland. You can also add garland with fake snow to enhance the look—just make sure to use garland intended for indoor/outdoor use, so they will last you years to come. Icicle lights are another great option for enhancing your porch or deck, with relatively easy installation and twinkling and steady settings.
Lights, Lights, Lights
Speaking of lights, adding lighting to your outdoor space makes a huge impact. Whether you add a lighted tree and lighted garlands, or you cover your entire deck in Christmas lights, they are sure to make an impact. If you prefer colored lights or white lights—the choice is yours—just stick to the same color for a cohesive look.
Adding white lights to your roof and around your home’s windows can make it feel more traditional, while icicle lights or colored lights can make it feel more modern and fun. Adding outdoor lighting to your porch, deck, patio, and/or roof will surely make your home stand out in your neighborhood this Christmas.
If you like a natural look, try adding natural greens to your deck, porch or patio. Natural garland, swags, and trees create a natural, green wonderland for a more subtle Christmas look. Adding live greens to your window boxes can also make your home feel more classic and old fashioned at Christmas time. Additionally, by using live trees you can then plant the trees in your yard after the holidays are over, making them eco-friendly and beautiful.
For the holiday season this year, carry your decorations throughout your whole home, including your deck, porch or patio. Whether you want to create a faux winter wonderland to enjoy with your firepit or outdoor fireplace, or you want to make your house shine using Christmas lights, decorating your deck adds to the holiday feel of your home.
