8 Great Front Door Décor Ideas

Finding a door that rocks when you knock

Think of your front door as an extension of your home’s welcome mat. It can either lure guests in or push them away, so it’s important that it communicates the right kind of intention. From expressing your personality and style to providing curb appeal and protection for your family, your front door serves a multitude of purposes. Let us show you how it can be both functional and fashionable with these front door décor ideas.

Paint That Pops on a Front Door

The reason the classic red front door works so well is because it stands out. Now, you don’t have to automatically go with red, but picking a vibrant color that pops — think robin’s egg blue, mint green, or a bold purple or orange — can help give your front door just enough personality to draw attention and add charm to your home’s exterior.

Wreaths. Wreaths. Wreaths.

Who said wreaths are just for Christmas? One of the most popular and traditional front door decorations, wreaths are versatile decorations that allow for a wide variety of personalization year ‘round. Whether you buy one from the store or craft one yourself out of branches, bows and flowers, a wreath on your front door can add that little extra in extraordinary.

Family Monogram for the Win

Big letters that represent names are a popular trend right now. These large letters make simple, yet attractive door decorations. (And are a great way to let your mail carrier know they’re delivering to the right home!) Simply adding a stylish metal or ornate letter accompanied by a bouquet of flowers, a fresh coat of paint, fashionable fabrics and more can really help add hominess to your front door. It’s not just a door for the exterior anymore: it’s a peek into the family – the home – that lives inside.

A Picture (Frame) is Worth 1,000 Words

Affordable, versatile and artistic – an empty picture frame can provide a fun composition and unique front door décor. You can even take it one step further and decorate your frame with faux flowers, fabrics, and of course pictures, to liven up your door’s style.

A Front Entry Bouquet of Beauty

Perfect for spring and summer, a hanging flower basket for your front door is the perfect seasonal greeting. Easy, elegant and versatile, your flower basket – or makeshift umbrella flower basket – can provide a beautifully refreshing decoration for the entrance to your home.

Sweet Door Symmetry

Sometimes you don’t need to decorate the door itself, but rather what’s on each side of the door to achieve a striking balance. By placing two identical potted plants or hanging romantic lanterns on either side of the door, you can create a symmetry that’s aesthetically pleasing.

“Knock, knock. Who’s there?”

One of the most common door ornaments, door knockers are practical and pleasing. Whether it’s a minimalist knocker or a more artistic piece, door knockers can truly add to the elegance and lend a more traditional feel to your home. If you like to think of your home as your castle, you can bring a bit of medieval flair to a modern home with the right door knocker.

Simple Geometry. Contemporary Door Beauty.

For fans of the modern minimalist motif, less is more – and that includes decorating your front door. To achieve a simple-yet-stylish look, try creating simple geometric patterns like circles, squares or triangles on your front door. This newer fashion looks particularly sleek on contemporary aluminum doors.

Whatever route you decide to take your front door home décor, make sure that it fits you and your family’s style. Your front door is the entrance to your home — don’t miss the chance to express yourself and get creative.

Rustica Lock Measuring Guide

Measuring Distance

This is the measurement from the top of your door to where you'd like the lock handle. This measurement allows you the flexibility to place the locking mechanism where it will not interfere with any existing handles or fixtures pre-mounted to the door. You'll need at least 2-1/8" clearance below. See Picture

Hole Placement

Introducing an easy solution to little ones slamming your barn door! Our new Closure soft-stop system slows you door down before it makes contact with the track stop. This ensures a smooth stop every time. The Closure system has been specially designed to be universal with all Rustica Hardware flat track systems, no matter the length of track this product will work with your flat track system. Product comes with (2) Closure mechanisms (one for each side of the track system) to protect your system whether it’s being opened or closed.

Placement is measured from bottom of the door to the door bore hole.

Placement is measured from bottom of the door to the door bore hole.

Our designer corbels are sold in pairs. Each pair of mantel corbels is made of solid alder wood and designed for use with our floating mantel shelves. Corbels are easy to install and add a substantial design feature to your mantel space. Corbels will come finished to match the color and texture of your selected mantel.

All of our solid wood doors are made from the finest grade knotty alder or poplar. The species of wood that a door is made from is based on the finish that is selected for that door. Knotty Alder is more rustic and full of knots that are prevalent in the finished look. Poplar is a cleaner wood in that it has less knots for a more seamless look.

Please use the below guide if you're interested knowing what species of wood your door will be made from and the type of look you should be expecting:

This is the width, height and thickness of the door itself. If you are replacing a slab (door without the jamb), fill in the exact measurements of the existing slab.

To measure rough opening height, measure the distance from the stud above the door opening to the floorboard at the bottom of the door opening.

To measure rough opening width, measure the distance from the stud on one side of the door opening to the stud on the opposite side of the opening.

Measure the existing slab, that you're wanting to replace, from the top of the door to the top of each hinge. You will format your entry in this format: Hinge 1- 10" from top of door. Hinge 2- 22.

We Recommend:

3-1/2" hinges for 1-3/8" doors, 4" hinges for 1-3/4" doors and 4-1/2" hinges for 2-1/4" doors.

Select which side of the door you'd like your pull/handle to be located when facing the front side of the door (the side of the opening in which you can see your track/rolling system). The back side handle will be placed on the same side of the door as your front side handle.

NOTE: The current lead time for Brushed Steel and Brushed Stainless Steel on the Box system type is 7 weeks.

To identify hinge positions, measure from the TOP of the door to the top of each hinge.
