How to Decorate Your Doors for Fall in Mankato

Fall is just around the corner in Mankato, and as the season 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 take advantage of some creative fall accents for your replacement doors to reflect the feel of the season. Doors are typically the focal point of a home—they create curb appeal and can make a large impact on someone’s first impression of a house. Here are some things to ponder when choosing your new fall door décor:

  • Creating levels in your entryway – Height is your friend when it comes to drawing eyes to your home’s doorway. There are several ways to create levels, including adding decorative grasses, hung lights or basket plants, or galvanized buckets to place 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 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 typically 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 trendy door hangers this year include:
    • Wood – try a wooden sign with a fun fall message to offer an inviting atmosphere to your entryway
    • Pinecones – string some together and paint them in warm hues for an added pop of color
    • Burlap sack – instead of piling fall flowers into a basket, fill 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 a charming scarecrow to greet guests when they come at your door

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