Decorating Ideas for Front Door Entrance

The front door of your home is just as important as any other exterior or interior part of your home. The entrance to your home sets the tone for how inviting the rest of your space will be and when decorated thoughtfully, it gives your visitors a great first impression. The front door of your home, like any other space you decorate in your house, should authentically represent your personal style. Take time when considering the many ways you can decorate your entrance. If you need a little inspiration, you have come to the right place! In this post, we will take a look at a few effective ways to decorate your front door entrance in a way you and your visitors will love!

Decorate The Front Door

The front door of your home can be decorated in countless ways. One such way is to add a wreath with seasonal flowers and foliage. Wreaths are not exclusively reserved for the holiday season; they can be used all year long! In the winter, decorate your front door with a garland wreath. After the holidays, replace the festive wreath with something wintery such as a wreath constructed of winter flowers that you can keep up until spring. During the spring and summer seasons, decorate your front door with summer wreaths made of beautiful, vividly colored summer flowers. The autumn season provides another fantastic opportunity to display gorgeous wreaths made with fall flowers, mini pumpkins, autumn leaves, and pine cones.

Wreaths aren’t the only décor piece you can use to decorate your front door. Installing a decorative, ornate door knocker is another way to add a special touch to your home. A unique door knocker allows you to give your home visitors a taste of your personal style before they even set foot into your home. You can explore many unique door knockers designed in a variety of styles, finishes, and materials, including bronze, copper, stainless steel, and cast iron.

Give the Door a Paint Job

Painting or sun-fading the front door is a fabulous way to add a pop of color to the entryway of your home. Choose bright, bold colors that can provide contrast and set your front door apart from the exterior colors of your house’s façade. Using a semi or high-gloss paint is ideal as it protects your door from rain, sun, and other elements. If you want something a little more subtle, try sun-fading the door as this provides a more natural effect.

Give Your Porch a Makeover

If you have a front porch, by all means, use it as an opportunity to decorate to your heart’s content! Invest in outdoor furniture such as a porch swing or an antique rocking chair and decorate your furniture with colorful outdoor throw pillows and blankets. You can also set up a small table and chairs to use for enjoying your morning cup of coffee or sipping tea at night. This will also make your porch a fantastic space for hosting small gatherings with friends and neighbors. Along with outdoor furniture pieces, you can decorate your front porch with holiday and seasonal home décor. In the spring and summer months, decorate with plants, succulents, and flowers. In the fall, opt for pumpkins, fall flowers, and other harvest-themed décor pieces. Once the holiday season arrives, you can string Christmas lights, poinsettias, and mini Christmas trees on either side of your door.

Add a Doormat

Rugs and welcome mats have been a staple home décor piece for decades. Not only are they stylish décor pieces for your entrance, but they are also practical too. They allow you and your visitors to remove dirt and other contaminants from shoes before entering your home. Doormats are designed in a variety of styles and colors and at Lands’ End, you can shop for custom door mats made exactly to your liking! Add a custom design with your family name or any other special wording you wish to greet your visitors with.

Install Exterior Lighting

Lighting, both for interior and exterior decorating, is tremendously effective in helping you create the exact atmosphere you want for your home. Exterior lighting can be used to create a warm, inviting atmosphere for your front door. Consider investing in some lanterns, wall lamps, or mounted lights for the front door or the side windows near your door. Make sure to choose the correct wattage for the lights so that your door does not become too bright. Edison light bulbs are a great choice as they cast a warm, soothing light. Alternatively, you can enhance the look of your front entryway by placing flameless LED candles in your windows too.
