The lengths that some people go to with their front doors is admirable and they should be applauded for it as there’s no doubt that having an attractive front door helps a house make a fantastic first impression.
Have you made an effort with your front door? If not, why not? It’s in your interests to do it.
Go to town with it and get it looking Insta-worthy so that you can proudly do the same and show off your front door on the social media site.
Here’s a step-by-step guide to how it can be accomplished:
Door buyers have never had so many coloured finishes to choose from when purchasing a new door. Select a colour based on the age of your home, and also its character.
Grey, black and white doors are the biggest favourites with door buyers, something to ponder if you just plan to repaint your door, but a lot of people are fond of Chartwell Green, Duck Egg Blue and Aubergine-coloured doors.
You could rip up the rule book and opt for a pink door, if you wanted, but it’s unlikely to have mass appeal.
You will notice on Instagram that many of the most ‘liked’ front doors feature a door wreath, even if it’s a shot of a door in summer.
Some of the wreaths you will see are homemade as making your own door wreath isn’t as complicated as it may sound. But the majority will be premade and either real or fake. No summer wreath should be without the following colours – red, pink and orange.
Keep changing your door wreath every season so that your door stays on-trend.
Together with a wreath on their front door, many Instagrammers also have a front door with planters on either side of it, and they do add a further visual interest.
The overwhelming favourite is the use of twin potted bay trees, which are usually quite tall and nicely preened.
It will be up to you to keep watering them, because the last thing you want is for them to die out and do your front door a disservice.
If you think it would be impossible to make your current front door Insta-worthy, get yourself a new one from Mitchell Glass. Our replacement door range can be viewed here.
It can feel like torture if you can’t get outside in summer when it’s hot and sunny and you live in a house that’s…
