How to Decorate Your Doors for Fall in Washington DC

Published on

Fall is just around the corner in Washington DC, and as the temp begins to change, so does the indoor and outdoor décor of our houses. Now is the best time to begin figuring out how to “fall-ify” your home entryway and add some creative fall accents for your replacement doors to imitate the atmosphere of the season. Doors are oftentimes the focal point of a home—they offer curb appeal and can make a strong impact on one’s first impression of a house. Here are a few things to consider when choosing 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 adding decorative grasses, hung lights or basket plants, or galvanized buckets to place pumpkins or other creative fall decorations.
  • Embrace color – Fall provides a brilliant color palette every year, so your front entryway should do the same. Gourds and pumpkins constantly provide a wonderful pop of color, as well as color-changing leaves and apples. Warm colors are the best choice for the fall palette.
  • More than corn stalks and wreaths – There are usually staple fall decorations that are used each year, but creativity in on-trend items can make your house look unique and stylish. Some of the big door hangers this fall include:
    • Wood – try a wooden sign with a fun 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 loading fall flowers into a basket, compile a burlap bag with flowers and pumpkins and place it on your door for the perfect fall charm
    • Scarecrow – turn an old straw hat into an enduring scarecrow to greet guests when they come at your door

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