Finally, it’s beginning to feel like summer, and we’ve got home improvements on our mind. Where best to start than with your front door? Over the winter months, it will have taken the brunt of the bad weather, leaving it looking tired and in need of a little TLC. So, we’ve put together five easy ways you can refresh your front door this summer.
Sprucing up your front door for summer could be as easy as giving it a quick clean and lick of paint. Remember to clean any outdoor lights and your house number too. When repainting, think of your door as an accessory to your home, choose a colour that compliments your home decor and style. You could take it a step further with a new door knob and knocker. It’s the first impression any guest has of your home, so make it one that’ll last.
There’s plenty of summer treats you could add to your entrance way to bring it to life this summer. From plants, statues, decorative stones and more. We love a decorative summer wreath, they’re not just for Christmas you know. You can pick some beautiful designs up online and in your local garden centre, or if you love to craft you can very easily make your own from the many tutorials online.
If you’re a dab hand in the garden, then adding a little floral piece will go a long way. Hanging baskets are always a winner, whether they’re filled with something simple or overflowing with cascading flowers, they’ll add something special to your front door this summer. Or maybe add potted plants either side of your door, be sure to keep any plants watered daily throughout the summer, to keep them looking their best!
If you have a porch, adding a touch of colour with a unique welcome mat can really make a difference to your front entrance. There are so many to choose from these days, you could have one with a welcome message, or a beautiful design that fits in with the rest of your home. Plus, it’s a good way to remind the children to wipe their feet on the way in!
