7 Ways to Decorate Your Timber Windows and Doors for Christmas

With Christmas trees going up in homes across the UK, why not decorate your timber windows and doors? In this blog we look at seven different ways to decorate your windows and doors with a festive feel in time for Christmas.

Christmas Window Lights

Christmas window lights are seen across many homes during the Christmas months, helping brighten up your property during the darker months.

Whether you are looking to go all out and decorate the whole of your home or you are applying a minimalist style to your home, window lights are perfect for helping spread the festive cheer both externally and internally.


If you are looking to completely transform your home over the Christmas period, why not invest in some Christmas themed curtains tie backs to complete the look?

Contact Paper

Contact paper is a popular option for decorating a child’s bedroom. It is a good way to involve your children in decorating the house for Christmas, as they can design their own Christmas decorations to cut out and stick on the window.


Bunting can look good hanging around the edge of windows, fireplaces or along the ceiling. It can help spread the festive cheer throughout the house and is a popular choice for living rooms or a child’s bedroom.

Christmas Wreaths / Garlands

Christmas wreaths can look good hanging on both your windows and doors. Wreaths can help bring a festive feel to visitors and help improve kerb appeal over the winter months.

Garlands can be displayed on the window sill to make your windows more of a feature within the room and help complement a green Christmas tree. If you don’t have a large enough window sill, they can also be hung to frame the top and side of a window.

Door Mats

Welcome your Christmas visitors with Christmas themed door mats. Christmas door mats not only help keep your home clean, are also often the first thing that visitors see when coming into your home, helping spread the festive cheer.

Draught Excluders

Christmas draught excluders can help reduce the draughts coming into your home through the Front door, while also making your home feel more like Christmas.

If you are feeling creative, you can make your own draught excluder, as detailed by the National Trust.

With the weather getting colder, you may find that your windows and doors require draught proofing to help keep your home warmer and reduce energy bills. The Sash Window Workshop’s draught proofing and overhaul service is designed to help keep your home warm by sealing the gaps around your timber windows and doors.
