How to Decorate Your Doors for Fall in South Portland

Fall is coming quickly in South Portland, and as the weather begins to change, so does the indoor and outdoor décor of our homes. Now is the best time to begin considering how to “fall-ify” your home entryway and add some fun fall accents for your replacement doors to imitate the ambiance of the season. Doors are oftentimes the focal point of a home—they bring curb appeal and can make a big impact on someone’s first impression of a house. Here are several things to ponder when selecting your new fall door décor:

  • Creating levels in your entryway – Height is helpful when it comes to drawing eyes to the doorway. There are many ways to produce levels, including incorporating decorative grasses, hung lights or basket plants, or galvanized buckets to stage pumpkins or other unique fall decorations.
  • Embrace color – Fall gives us a brilliant color palette every year, so your front entryway should do the same. Gourds and pumpkins constantly provide a great pop of color, as well as color-changing leaves and apples. Warm colors are a good option for the fall palette.
  • More than corn stalks and wreaths – There are typically staple fall decorations that are used year after year, but creativity in on-trend items can make your home look unique and stylish. Some of the popular door hangers this year include:
    • Wood – try a wooden sign with a entertaining fall message to offer an inviting atmosphere to your entryway
    • Pinecones – string several together and paint them in warm hues for an added pop of color
    • Burlap sack – instead of piling fall flowers into a basket, compile a burlap bag with flowers and pumpkins and put it on your door for the perfect fall charm
    • Scarecrow – turn an old straw hat into a cute scarecrow to greet guests when they arrive at your door

Use your replacement door as a canvas for fall creativity during this change of seasons and wow your neighbors with lively and fun curb appeal.
