Holiday Exterior Makeovers: BA Exteriors’ Guide to Festive Home Transformations


The holiday season is a time of joy, togetherness, and making memories with loved ones. It’s also a time when homes across the country light up with festive decorations. But why stop at just decorating your tree? At BA Exteriors, we believe that your home’s outdoor space can be a canvas for holiday magic. That’s why we’ve put together a guide of decoration ideas to help you transform your home’s exterior into a festive wonderland.

Festive Lighting

One of the most iconic aspects of holiday decor is lighting. Strings of twinkling lights add pops of color and instantly make your home look warm and inviting. Start by outlining your roofline with LED lights in classic white or festive colors. You can also wrap lights around trees, pillars, and railings. For a dramatic effect, consider using icicle lights to mimic the look of dripping icicles.

Wreaths and Garlands

Wreaths and garlands are timeless holiday decorations that can add a touch of elegance to your home’s exterior. Hang a wreath on your front door or above your garage for a classic look. Drape garlands along railings, porches, and archways. You can opt for real evergreen wreaths or choose artificial versions that last throughout the season.

Decorative Ornaments

Large, shatterproof ornaments can be a stunning addition to your outdoor decor. Hang them from tree branches, porch ceilings, or even in windows. These oversized ornaments are available in various colors and finishes to match your chosen holiday theme.

Lighted Yard Decor

To make your front yard come alive with holiday spirit, invest in lighted yard decor. From charming reindeer and snowmen to nativity scenes and Santa’s sleigh, there are plenty of options to choose from. These decorations are easy to set up and create a festive focal point.

Seasonal Planters

Replace your regular outdoor planters with festive alternatives filled with seasonal greenery and decorations. Poinsettias, holly branches, and miniature evergreen trees can add color and texture to your entryway. You can also add ornaments, pinecones, and ribbons to complete the look.

Window Decorations

Don’t forget to decorate your windows. Hang beautiful wreaths or lighted candles in each window to create a cozy, inviting ambiance. Window clings in holiday designs, such as snowflakes or Santa Claus, can also add a playful touch. Go the extra mile with festive window boxes.

Nativity Scenes

For those celebrating Christmas, a nativity scene in your front yard can be a beautiful reminder of the holiday’s true meaning. Place it in a prominent location where it can be seen and appreciated by passersby.

Pathway Lighting

Guide your guests to your front door with pathway lighting. Luminaries, lanterns, or even simple stakes with holiday-themed tops can lead the way. This not only adds to the festive atmosphere but also enhances safety.

Inflatable Decor

If you want to go all out, consider inflatable holiday decor. Giant snow globes, animated characters, and Santa’s sleigh with reindeer can turn your yard into a holiday spectacle that will delight neighbors and visitors alike.

Personalized Touches

Finally, don’t forget to add personalized touches that reflect your family’s unique holiday traditions. Whether it’s a handmade sign, a special ornament, or a wreath you crafted yourself, these details make your exterior decor truly special.

With these tips and ideas, you can add the finishing touches to transform your home’s holiday exterior into a festive winter wonderland that brings holiday cheer to your neighborhood.
