Tis’ the season to dress up your house for the holidays. Many people enjoy decorating for the holidays, but remember more people will see your home’s external appearance than the inside. American Garage Door encourages you to get into the holiday spirit.

What can you do with your garage door in New Orleans to get your home in the holiday festive spirit? Here are five ideas to help:

6 Ways to Decorate your New Orleans Garage Door for the Holidays:

  1. Garage Door Magnets. For those in a hurry or who want to decorate a garage door affordably, you can stick up a big “Happy Holidays” magnet. You can find them on a number of websites, including Amazon. The Holiday Garage Door magnets are visible from the street, making them a perfect way to let your neighbors know that your home is a festive place to be.
  2. Garland Around the Frame. Another beautiful way to express your holiday cheer is with real garland surrounding the outline of the garage door. You can also add a designer’s touch by placing a wreath on the top, where the garage door points upwards to an upside down “V” shape and meets the roof. Either real, pine or fir tree garland is very attainable, but you could also use fake garland such as those sold in most department stores.
  3. Garage Door Lights. Of course we could not have a list of great garage door holiday decorations without mentioning lights! You can create a design using white, blue or any color that accents your house and gives it a nice glow. Tack the lights carefully along the trim work of your garage to give it a sense of depth.
  4. Wrapping Paper. If you can find a thick, weatherproof wrapping paper or tinfoil, you could really get creative. Use colored electrical tape to hold it up, which comes in colors such as green and red.
  5. Garage Door Murals. Let your artistic side shine through with a creative garage door mural. To make it last longer than just through the holiday season, you could paint a winter scene.
  6. Garage Door Decals. Decals are removable and affordable, so you can dress up your plain garage door without worrying about permanency. This is also a fun way to decorate your home that you can let the kids participate in!

We hope to see everyone in the Mandeville, LA or New Orleans area get into the festive spirit. If you need any advice on garage door maintenance or tips, contact our Louisiana garage door experts at American Garage Door. 888-991-7030.
