These front door decor ideas will increase your curb appeal and make your front porch decor look stylish. Read on!

We don’t need to emphasize the importance of how your front entrance looks and what impact it has on your entire home design (both exterior and interior). Indeed, the first impression you make to someone who is staring at your door while they wait to be welcomed in tells everything about you.

That’s why you have to really think this through. And we are here to help you with our set of decorating ideas. These are more than just wreaths (but there are a lot of them too). We have plenty of tips that will help you turn the entrance to your home attractive and increase your curb appeal.

What to Hang on Front Door for Decor?

Here’s a quick look of what you can hang on your door:

  • A wreath (many styles of it to choose from – see below)
  • An ornament
  • Letters and monograms
  • Seasonal hangings
  • Baskets
  • Flower pots and flower arrangements
  • Signs
  • Chalkboard
  • Wire and metal art
  • String art

Don’t be afraid to experiment! You can hang a lot of things on the door as long as it makes sense and it tells a message.

Creating a welcoming decor in farmhouse style is one of the easiest ways to increase your porch appeal. Rustic farmhouse always associates with welcoming coziness. There’s no way your guests won’t feel welcome entering your home seeing this vignette.

The basket is a great practical hanging as you can add greenery and other accents to it. And you can change the wooden star to different decor accent as well. The most important detail is to keep the consistent theme.

We can make a whole new article about Christmas decorations but one of our favorites is making it personal. For example, a monogram made of pinecones makes your holidays truly special.

If you want your front decor to have a special meaning try a monogram. Usually, it’s the capital letter of your family name. In this example, the piece is made from pinecones to have a rustic fall appeal.

Again, it’s all about creating a welcoming rustic coziness. Your guests will appreciate the effort. After all, it’s so much more of a pleasing experience to enter a home which is decorated right from the curb.
