First impressions count. When you move into your fabulous new house you can expect lots of visitors. Your front door should make a statement, show your personal style and stand out from the crowd.There are lots of simple but effective ways of achieving this.
A visible door number is essential for deliveries and visitors alike. A wealth of styles, materials and fixing are readily available.
An indoor/outdoor rug creates a warm inviting front door and is practical too, keeping muddy footprints to a minimum.
Symmetrical planting either side of the door creates a stylish entrance whether it’s two bay trees, architectural topiary or seasonal flowers. For a country cottage feel, colourful hanging baskets create a charming look.
Don’t overlook outdoor lanterns. Battery or solar powered, they will add a pretty glow to your front door as the nights draw in.
Consider your outdoor lighting, essential for security, but it can also create a beautiful ambience. The choice is endless from large oversized lanterns to down lighters, simple sconces, pendants and string lights.
Finally, a door wreath, not just for the festive season, wreaths can be seasonal or just simple, stylish metal or willow designs.
