The days are getting longer, the sun is shining brighter. Finally, spring is in the air! The days of icy salt-covered porches are finally over. Now is the perfect time to clear away any signs of winter and instead spruce up your front door and entry with some bright, airy spring décor.
Here are a few of our favorite spring-inspired ideas to get you started with a fresh new look.
Dress Up the Front Door
Your door has been ignored for months and pounded with snow, sleet, and ice. It is time to give it the overhaul it needs. One way to do this is to change out the hardware. This is an easy fix that can go a long way when it comes to increasing curb appeal. While you are replacing hardware, consider repainting or replacing house numbers too. This is another quick project that will refresh your entire entry.
Finally, adding a decorative wreath sounds simple, but it leaves a big impact. Can’t find a wreath that expresses your personal style and complements your exterior decor? Make your own! There are so many DIY ideas for creating a wreath on your own. It is easier than you think to add that special unique touch to your front door.
Repurpose and Recycle
The popular trend today is the vintage look. Replicate this look to add a bit of style to your entry. Start by checking out local thrift stores or antique shops for a unique chair or bench that can be repainted to reflect your style. Find or purchase old watering cans, planters, or even old mailboxes and give them a new life as planters. The addition of a punch of color can give you that extra curb appeal you are looking for to get out of the winter slump.
Your front door is the perfect way to show off your personality and welcome guests warmly into your home. Before you begin to decorate for spring, be sure to clean your door and inspect for any signs of damage from the winter season. It is common to notice that your door is beginning to show signs of wear. In this case, it may be time to look into replacing and upgrading your front door.
