5 ways to accessorise your wooden entrance door

Accessorising your wooden entrance door can transform the look and feel of your door, and further, your home. Yet, door trends shift and evolve so quickly that accessorising your door can be a difficult task to undertake.

The entrance door to your home is the first thing people see when they visit. Not only does it set make a great first impression, but it can also set the tone for the rest of your home.

To help you with your accessorising ideas, our team at Timber Windows have come up with 5 effective ways to decorate your wooden entrance door that are timeless, and will give it a welcoming and stylish look.

1. Handles and decorative hardware

Handles are a simple door accessory that are essential when elevating the design of your entrance door. Both the colour and type of door handle you choose for your door can change the feel and style you are trying to create.

Gold door handles for example, are much more traditional in appearance and are a great addition to period properties. Alternatively, black door finishings can be better suited to more contemporary homes. Put simply, an entrance door can be revitalised with a statement handle that passers-by will be drawn to.

Additionally, the type of door handle you choose can also have an impact on the look of your door design. Circular door knobs are more commonly seen on older, traditional properties and are perfect if you want to give your entrance door a vintage feel. However, square, or sideways handles are standard on modern homes.

Further, adding other decorative hardware to your entrance door such as locks, kick-plates, and letterboxes can also give it a stylish and unique look whilst making your home secure and protecting your door from scratches and dents.

2. Design details

When considering design details, think about subtle features that will have maximum impact and add interest to your wooden entrance door.

Among others, etched glass is a popular option to add elegance and intricacy to an entrance door, whilst also providing additional functionality in the form of privacy. Further, etched glass can be chosen in a range of designs allowing you to create a front door completely bespoke to you.

Front door lighting can also be an ideal choice to create ambience around your outdoor area. Not only will this provide task lighting, allowing visitors to see your entrance way clearly, it will additionally provide accent lighting to highlight primary design features on your entrance door.

3. Door knockers

A door knocker is another classic accessory for any entrance door. Door knockers add a traditional touch to your home, and also serve a practical purpose of alerting you to visitors arriving at your home.

At Timber Windows, our range of door knockers are made of brass, iron, and nickel, allowing them to remain cohesive with the rest of your door accessories.  Further, our range comes in a variety of designs and shapes to suit your personal style.

4. Wreaths

Though you may think wreaths can only be used during the Christmas season, they are an accessory that can be used throughout the year and can be interchanged through the seasons.

A wreath is an easy way to add a pop of colour and personality to your entrance door and adds a welcoming touch to your home. You can also be as creative or as minimalistic as you’d like with your door wreath and either make your own using flowers, leaves, or even pine cones, or you can purchase one from a store.

5. Doormats

 A doormat is not only a practical accessory for keeping your home clean, but it can also add a touch of personality to your entrance door. Choose a doormat with a fun design or message, or go for a classic and simple design to keep with the overall aesthetic of your home.
