But hey, there’s one more thing that happens around the holidays that isn’t as glamorous, and that’s home improvement projects! Whether you’re patching the roof or replacing some outdated windows, it’s likely that your home needs a little TLC before the guests arrive. If you plan on replacing your old windows with efficient, attractive vinyl windows, you should make it a point to make your fancy new windows a focal point of your holiday decor. Here’s how:

Crafting the Perfect Holiday Display

The best and most obvious way to dress up your new vinyl windows for the Christmas season is with a seasonal window display. It’s as simple as putting a window-height table in front of the window and decorating the surface.There are a million ways to add a little Christmas spirit to your window display. Whether it’s a manger scene, poinsettias or a little village covered in lights, your guests will love the look and holiday feel.

Feel free to think outside the box with this one. A display of family pictures from holidays over the years or a mini Christmas tree add personal touches to the beautiful display. Crafting a holiday display in front of your beautiful new vinyl windows will provide a great exterior curb appeal and interior setting.

Window Paint gets People in the Spirit

This one’s perfect for the little ones. Window paint is extremely temporary but perfectly achieves the holiday spirit that so many families aim for with their seasonal decorating. If you want a more sophisticated, clean display, it might be best to leave the painting to the adults! You can draw anything from a Christmas tree to Santa, and your neighbors will love it. If you’re letting your kids take the reigns, you could work on their spelling with phrases like, “Merry Christmas!” or “Happy Holidays!” It’s all up to you.

Window paint is the best way to get your creative juices flowing. One of the best tips we can give you is that practice makes perfect, and patience is worth it in this situation. Practice your drawing on a piece of paper before committing it to the glass. The window paint may be temporary, but constantly having to start the drawing over is never fun.

Curtains to Capture the Magic

Curtains are a classic way to give your home a pop of holiday spirit. Whether you choose solid-colored or printed curtains, it’s a great way to decorate your home for the holidays without creating clutter or taking away from the aesthetics.

Decorating might not be one of the main reasons you had new vinyl windows installed, but it’s certainly a perk! Do your best this holiday season to draw attraction to the interior and exterior of your new windows through tasteful decor. Decorating your windows is just one of the many ways to make your holiday more magical and memorable.
