The holidays are fast approaching...Thanksgiving is over and December is now upon us. Do you know what that means? It’s time to decorate! While some find the process of decorating a very enjoyable one, others might think of it as a project or just another chore to check off the list. If you are someone who enjoys decorating and are looking for an easy, unique way to do so, try decorating your garage door this year!
Here at All 4 Seasons, we are committed to providing you with residential garage doors of exceptional quality and look. That's why we provide beautiful garage doors in Marietta, GA and the surrounding areas. However, we know that there is nothing quite like adding your own personal touch to something. Some of the houses on your block might have the whole exterior of their houses decorated, but what can you do if you simply don’t have time for that? Easy: decorate your garage door instead. Your neighbors and people driving by will be very impressed that you came up with such an idea (you’re very welcome).
But how to decorate a garage door, you ask? In all likelihood, your door moves up and down multiple times a day, so it is important for the decorations to be secure from both movement of the door and the outdoor elements they will inevitably be exposed to, no matter where you live. Here are 7 ways to spice up your already beautiful garage door in Marietta, GA or the greater Atlanta area:
1. Use wrapping paper
Cover your garage door in wrapping paper. Buying individual rolls of paper could quickly become expensive, so we suggest finding a store that sells bulk rolls. If you don’t like the idea of wrapping paper, you could also try using sheets instead. No matter what material you decide to use, you are sure to find fun patterns and designs that your whole family will enjoy.
2. Light it up
Consider adding lights around the perimeter of your garage door. Lights are an easy way to enhance the look of your garage door. They are also visually appealing from both up close and farther away. Besides, nothing says you’re ready for the holidays quite like lights!
3. Feeling artsy?
Looking for something to paint? Why not your garage door? Show off your creative side by painting a mural on your garage door. There’s a lot of freedom with this idea - the theme of your painting could be Christmas, winter, or something scenic that will be appropriate to leave up for a long time. Send us a photo of your creation - we would love to see!
4. Wreath anyone?
Many people have wreaths on their front doors,so why not add one to your garage door as well? Any size will do - you could even have a few wreaths depending on the size of your door. Having a wreath on your garage door also gives you the opportunity to decorate it in any way you would like, should you choose to do so.
5. Don’t want to do something permanent? No problem.
You may be in a position where you cannot or do not want to leave any marks behind on your garage door when it’s time to take your decorations down. If this is the case, we suggest getting a projector so your neighbors and passersby can enjoy a wintry scene after dark. With the days getting shorter, having a lit-up scene on your garage door is sure to bring smiles to everyone who sees it.
6. Take advantage of your garage door’s material.
Is your garage door magnetic? If so, why not add some holiday or winter magnets to it? Be sure they are big enough to be seen and enjoyed from the road!
7. Stickers - always a crowd pleaser
Stickers can be appreciated by people of any age. Vinyl stickers will be most effective in sticking to your garage door - they are meant to last longer. Try writing a message using letter stickers, or find some with beloved characters like Santa, his elves, and the reindeer.
Some of these ideas might work better for some garage doors in Marietta, GA than others, but we encourage you to try something to add a touch of love to your door. If you have any other suggestions, we would love to hear them! And if you ever need any garage door services, let us know! We're happy to stop by and help. From all of us at All 4 Seasons, we send you best wishes for a happy and healthy holiday season. Have fun decorating!
