How to Decorate Your Doors for Fall in Northern Virginia

Published on

Fall is just around the corner in Northern Virginia, and as the temp begins to change, so does the indoor and outdoor décor of our homes. Now is the perfect time to begin thinking about how to “fall-ify” your home entryway and take advantage of 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 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 your home’s doorway. There are several ways to produce levels, including using decorative grasses, hung lights or basket plants, or galvanized buckets to stack pumpkins or other fun fall decorations.
  • Embrace color – Fall offers us a brilliant color palette every year, so your front entryway should do the same. Gourds and pumpkins continually provide a great pop of color, as well as color-changing leaves and apples. Warm colors are a great selection for the fall palette.
  • More than corn stalks and wreaths – There are usually staple fall decorations that are used annually, but creativity in on-trend items can make your entryway look unique and stylish. Some of the trendy door hangers this season 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 heaping 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 appear 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.
