It’s finally one of the best times of the year where Christmas lights are adorning every front porch and Christmas trees can be seen peeking out of windows. Shops are brimming with Christmas décor and every High Street has been decorated in festive cheer. 

This time of year brings with it many ideas for Christmas décor for your front porch. As suppliers of black composite doors, Truedor has put together a guide on 6 ways to decorate your black front door this Christmas. 

A Time for Personality

Christmas is more often than not a time for some fun. Where you can over embellish your house with some of your own quirky décor and put a smile on someone else’s face. Letting a bit of your personality shine on your front door is a great way to make your own black door a really unique feature. 

A World of Lights 

Nothing says warmth on a cold December evening like a string of fairy lights. This is one of our favourite ways to really make your black door shine, excuse the pun. One easy way to execute this décor idea is by draping some fairy lights around your door coupled with metallic baubles. The baubles will add an extra touch of sparkle, reflecting the light and enhancing that magical feel. 

Say It with a Gift 

The first thing that everyone thinks of when they think of Christmas is the gifts, and of course they should. However, who says that the gifts should be kept under the tree? Why not take them outdoors and replace your drowned and dying plants with some oversized gift boxes. Adding lights to the inside of the boxes will also add that extra touch of magic this season. You never know, maybe Santa will catch onto the hint

Sparkle and Colour 

This décor idea is a great one for houses with kids. Making your subdued black door bright and colourful can really add a touch of light and creativity to the front of your house. Getting the kids involved in setting it up can also make for a fun family experience.

Spell It Out Loud 

Adorning your door with bright and bold seasonal lettering is a great way to enter the seasonal cheer with a bang. This is another one of our favourite decorating ideas, keeping your door classy while also celebrating all that the festive period brings. 

Whimsy and Wonder

There is nothing more spectacular than a winter wonderland scene, so why not recreate it around your front door. A black door provides the perfect neutral backdrop for this whimsical and icy scene.
