Now and then it can be fun to give your door an extra boost. Whether you want to add in a splash of color or something to draw the eye when people visit, door décor varies far and wide. If you find yourself unsure of what kind of decorations you want to add to your door, consider some of the following tips and then see what might work best for your door and your home.
Time of Year
Is it summer? Fall? Winter? The seasons are a perfect reason and time to decorate your door. Wreaths are always one of the most popular door decorations, and one of the ways you can make it a little more special is to craft one yourself. Skip the pre-made wreath and look at craft store goodies to make one of your own. You can use the backdrop of the seasons as a way to get your wreath to pop more. Add red berries and sprigs of evergreen to your wreath during snow-blanketed winters. Decorations that help to reflect upon the current season are always in style.
Consider not just the color of your door, but also the color of your home. Have a blue house and darker blue door? Then consider a decoration with brighter colors like reds or yellows. You can choose to hang something on your door that incorporates color and shape – a bright yellow sun with a blue backdrop. There are plenty of possibilities, but the goal is to get the decoration to pop so that the eye is drawn to it. This way it doesn’t matter if the person is right in front of your door or just strolling past on a walk. They’ll want to look and then get to appreciate your door décor.
Off the Door
Door décor doesn’t have to just remain strictly on the door. Bring decorations out around the frame or on the doorstep. This is primarily popular during holiday seasons like Christmas or Halloween, but it doesn’t have to strictly adhere to those times. Flowers or plants can be excellent ways to showcase your door by placing them on each side of it. Choose things that will help to complement your door and give an added welcome to your home.
Consider all the ways you might want to decorate your door and choose something that feels right for both you and your home.
