How To Create An Insta-Worthy Front Door

You literally have a matter of seconds to impress people when they come to visit your house for the first time. It needs to wow them from the moment they arrive, and in order for it to do that, having an attractive front door is a must! 

A lot of people go to incredible lengths with their front doors, as you will see when you use the hashtags #frontdoor or #frontdoors on Instagram. 

The effort they make will be worth it, and the same will apply if you go to town with your own front door. 

Once you have beautifully dressed it up, it will be time to take the camera out and take a shot of it for your Insta account. 

To get lots of ‘likes’, use this advice as a guide:

Coloured finish

Assess every colour option before you buy a new front door, and be careful with your choice of finish if you decide to repaint your old door. Think about the age and character of your property. 

You cannot go wrong with a grey, black or white-coloured front door, as they are the overwhelming favourites, but you will see plenty of Chartwell Green, Aubergine and Duck Egg Blue doors on streets. 

It’s not unknown to also come across pink doors, but they’re not for everyone.

Door wreath

You only ever used to see wreaths on doors during the Christmas period, but they’re now an ever-present on many front doors. 

You could set yourself the task of creating a homemade door wreath, if you think you can accomplish it, or do the easier thing and just buy a premade real or fake wreath. It’s typical for a summer wreath to include colours like red, orange and pink. 

As each season comes around, you can rotate your wreaths to keep your door completely on-trend.

The most on-trend front doors don’t just have a door wreath. Many of them also have planters to emphasise the entrance, which they do very successfully. 

The favourite form of planter for front doors is often twin potted bay trees, with one on either side of a door. They do make a door that bit more noticeable. 

Of course, you will need to water your planters on a regular basis so that they don’t die out, and the same goes for any hanging basket/s.
