With both spring and summer on the way, it is time to start thinking about sprucing up your home for the best seasons of the year, and where better to start than your very own front door?
Doing so is not only relatively cheap, but it makes a great impression on family members and guests. So without further ado, here are five cheap, yet entirely beautiful inspirations for your front door:
Paint it a bright colour
As spring and summer are all about beginnings, sunshine and love, this presents the perfect time to paint your door a bright, new and wonderful colour. Robin’s egg blue, Rosso corsa, forest green and Sunglow yellow are all perfect colours to choose from. If you’re looking for further inspiration, take a look to see what your neighbours are doing. Just remember not to make too much of a mess!
Decorate it with plants
There’s nothing quite as welcoming than a door that is decorated with a cute little plant or two. Not only does it make a great first impression, but for any guests that have not visited before, it is a great way of putting them at ease.
In fact, in a recent publication, The Telegraph has written a top ten guide for putting plants on your doorstep. From plants that cost mere pennies to grow from seeds, to ones that cost just a tad more. Click here to see what the newspaper recommends for our front door in the spring and summer of 2014.
Buy a fantastic doorknocker
Doorknobs can be beautiful pieces of metal for your door, not only can they be grand and well defined, but also, if you fancy it, they can also be comical, welcoming and inspiring pieces of door furniture.
