Creating Curbside Appeal

The overall decor of your home should extend beyond the front door. It encompasses not only the interior of your home, but everything from the garden beds all the way to the mailbox. In considering the curbside appeal of your home, there are a few easy ways you can add life to your door step including adding a touch of color, incorporating a whimsical door hanging, or simply planting a bold container or two.

Pop of Color

Adding a bright pop of color to your stoop can be a great way to catch the eye of a passerby and will give your home the edge to stand out against others around it. Paint is a great and relatively inexpensive way to enhance the minor features of your home such as the front door or the window shutters.

If painting your front door doesn’t quite suit your fancy, consider adding a brightly colored accent piece such as a small chair or an oversized container for your plants. Find more ideas here.

Door Hangings

If you're thinking about adding in a door hanging, think outside the box for your base. You can use an old wooden wheel, a large embroidery hoop, a wicker basket, or a large letter for a monogram!

Once you have your base, grab some floral wire, a door hanging hook, and some faux flowers.  Vary the sizes of your blooms and greenery. Hydrangeas, peonies, eucalyptus, magnolia leaves, ferns or even faux citrus fruits are all great options! Once you have all your supplies, wrap and twist away to make sure everything is secure!

If making your door hanger doesn't suit your fancy, Etsy also has some great options as well. The wreath pictured can be found here.

Bold Floral Containers

Using bold, geometric containers on either side of your front door is another great way to spruce up your curbside appeal. They can create beautiful symmetry for your entryway. You can also use several different heights of containers to create more of a container garden on the steps of your entryway.

Whether you opt for an container garden of herbs, or two bold containers of beautiful greens, you can change them up at any time and for any season!  Find more container ideas here.
