12 doors of Christmas: Easy front door decor updates for the holidays.
Monday, November 21, 2022
Tune up your vocal cords and prepare for the Twelve Doors … we mean, Days … of Christmas, Schlage-style.
On the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to me a sense of home security.
There are lots of ways to give your loved ones peace of mind when it comes to protecting their home and everyone in it. Schlage, with our secure and durable deadbolts for exterior doors is a good place to start. There’s also video doorbells, shatter-proof window film, keyless locks and countless other ways to help keep the family and house safe.
On the second day of Christmas, my true love gave to me two smart deadbolts.
Smart locks are a safe and convenient way to give that gift of home security. Not only are Schlage electronic locks rated Best by the BHMA for Security, Durability and Finish, but they’re also easy to install. And when you connect them to your home wireless network, you can control them from anywhere using your smartphone. Schlage smart locks are great for more than just front doors, too. Consider them for a back door, garage entry or even a home office where higher security and privacy are needed.
On the third day of Christmas, my true love gave to me three French doors.
Three sets of French doors might sound a bit excessive, but once you see what they can do for the look and feel of your home, you’ll quickly change your mind. French doors add an extra touch of sophistication to both interior and exterior entryways. Plus, with their glass panes, you can enjoy the extra light they let in without the extra noise from the rest of the house.
On the fourth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me four glass door knobs.
Speaking of sophistication, glass door knobs are a prime example of how a little extra shine can elevate any room. The Schlage Custom™ Alexandria is a classic glass knob inspired by Victorian architecture but with modern functionality. There’s also the Schlage Custom™ Hobson glass knob, which with its smooth finish and subtle details, looks just as stunning on transitional homes as it does on traditional ones.
On the fifth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me five cans of paint.
Your hardest decision will be where to use all that paint. Will you paint a room? Give your trims and doors an update? Upcycle some old furniture to give it new life and your personal stamp? Let your kids show off their artistic skills?
On the sixth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me six gorgeous levers.
No matter what style your or your true love’s home is, Schlage probably has a lever to suit it. With countless designs ranging from traditional to contemporary and somewhere in between, you’ll be able to find the gorgeous lever that puts the finishing touch on any room.
On the seventh day of Christmas, my true love gave to me seven hacks for hosting.
Even pros who host frequent get-togethers love a good hack that makes their job easier. And when you’re hosting at holiday time, those shortcuts become even more important. Get inspired by these holiday hosting hacks.
On the eighth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me eight homemade dog treats.
Pets are family, too. There are plenty of homemade treats that are both tasty and healthy for your furry true love, not to mention a number of other gifts perfect for porch puppies of all sizes.
On the ninth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me nine hygge blankets.
Winter calls for snuggling into the comfort of your home with the ones you love most. A cozy throw blanket that gently whispers hygge—you don’t want to ruin the relaxing vibe with loud décor, after all—will help you enjoy that quality time.
On the tenth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me ten tools for gardening.
Because gardening tools are out of season in the winter in most regions, you might find some great deals as opposed to stocking up in the spring. The right tools make all the difference, and don’t limit yourself to just spades and rakes. Think high-tech like smart irrigation or low-tech like a flower pouch. Find more on these gardening tools and similar ideas with our Curb Appeal Gift Guide.
On the eleventh day of Christmas, my true love gave to me eleven mini door wreaths.
A beautiful wreath for the front door is a showstopper, but small wreaths for interior doors are an unexpected twist that is at once gorgeous, festive and easy to DIY.
On the twelfth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me twelve cabinet pulls.
When a major renovation isn’t in the plans but your true love wants to give a room a facelift, new cabinet pulls can help. Instead of replacing an entire bathroom vanity, ripping out all the cabinets in the kitchen or trashing the tired-looking dresser, replace the pulls and see how it transforms the overall look. You can even choose pulls that complement your door hardware or other fixtures for some top style.
Now everyone sing along...
