Nothing is more inviting than a beautifully decorated entrance door. This is why year-on-year we’re seeing homeowners embrace the changing seasons from the moment you return home.
Think colour, personality, and style. Letting the seasons inspire you to give it a refresh and an elegant makeover. Whether it’s a simple wreath, abundant bulb lasagne set beside the front door, or a fresh coat of paint. We want to share with you our favourite seasonal tips to inspire you this spring.
Spring entrance door décor ideas and tips
EMBRACE THE COLOURS OF SPRING WITH A FRESH LICK OF PAINT
One of the undeniable benefits of owning a timber entrance door is the ability to refresh tired or faded doors, and even completely repaint your door as trends change.
A seasonable change like spring-time pastels or summery tones could be on the cards if you’re looking to add a little optimism and vibrancy as we enter warmer days. As Rebeccas explains “I don’t think the novelty of coming home to this door will ever wear off! It’s such a big change from the PVC, worn out white door that was here when I bought the house. It never fails to put a smile on my face”
ADD A FESTIVE WREATH
There’s a reason why we all get excited to hang that wreath over the festive period. Not only is it a beautiful decorating tool to compliment your entrance door, but a seasonal wreath can be scented. Placed level with your nose to perfectly capture the delicate aromas of the season.
Or perhaps you want to break away from tradition and opt for something more playful? As Frankie explains, “The wreath was a treasure I picked up in HomeSense. I didn’t even know an Easter wreath was a thing until I saw this one and had to have it! It looks gorgeous on the door. The only downside is the resemblance to Cadbury mini eggs. Every time you arrive home, you crave them with a huge smile on your face!”
MAKE A SCENE
A trend our cousins over the pond have nailed is how to decorate your front porch for every festivity, celebration, and season. Whether you choose to rotate potted plants to embrace the seasonal blooms, or go all out for easter, Jess demonstrates how easy it can be to add some seasonal joy from her home in Virginia.
“I love to decorate my front porch because it makes people feel welcomed from the second they step onto our porch. It sends out vibes of happiness and cheer. Even The Amazon delivery people, FedEx and UPS people look forward to seeing what I will do with my porch each season.”
When many of the trees that line your street or hedgerows that surround your home become skeletons of their summer glory, you can be confident that your front porch will always welcome you home with open arms by adding some evergreen planters.
Now is the ideal time to get planting, with a long growing season ahead to allow them to settle and establish themselves in their new home.
ADD A BENCH
Warmer, longer days are ahead, and spring marks a change in all of us as we’re keen to get outside and enjoy the fresh air. So a welcome bench or place to sit is an ideal spring-addition.
A space to sit as you wait to welcome the arrival of guests with your morning coffee. Or, a place to kick off your running shoes and get straight into your garden sliders on the sunniest of days.
IT’S TIME FOR A SPRING CLEAN

TAKE NOTE OF ANY GAPS IN YOUR SPRING BORDERS
Cut down some bamboo sticks and use them as markers for gaps that need filling in your spring display. That way, come autumn, you’ll be able to plant any extra spring autumns to ensure a luxuriously full spring display.
