Refresh Your Entryway for Spring

Spring is in the air and it’s time to give your entryway a fresh new look for the season. A revamped entryway sets the tone when you walk through the front door and makes a great first impression on guests. Follow these tips to refresh your entryway decor and make it feel light, bright and welcoming for spring.

Clear Out Clutter

The first step is to clear out any clutter that accumulated over winter. Remove coats, scarves, gloves, and any other winter accessories that are crowding the space. Consider donating unused items to charity and packing the rest away in storage bins.

With the entryway cleared of excess items, it will instantly feel more spacious and ready for a style update. This is also a good time to vacuum, dust and declutter any furniture like console tables or benches.

Add Greenery and Fresh Florals

One of the easiest ways to usher in spring is with greenery and fresh florals. Try incorporating:

  • A potted plant like a fern or orchid for an instant pop of green. Opt for low maintenance plants that don’t require daily sunlight.

  • A small vase of tulips, daffodils or any colorful spring blooms on a console table or floating shelf. Swap out the flowers weekly for a seasonal refresh.

  • A wreath made with eucalyptus, magnolia leaves or other fresh greens for the front door. You can find beautiful, realistic faux versions if you don’t want the hassle of replacing real ones.

Greenery and florals instantly liven up the entryway and the pleasant scents will make your home smell of spring as soon as you open the door.

Update Accessories

Switch out dark winter accents for lighter, brighter spring accessories that complement the fresh florals. Some ideas include:

  • New doormats in natural fibers like jute or sisal. Opt for one with a colorful spring motif.

  • Pretty ceramic bowls to hold keys, sunglasses and other accessories. Opt for pastel hues that evoke the colors of spring.

  • Decorative trays to corral smaller items. Choose ones with fresh patterns featuring butterflies, flowers and other springtime motifs.

  • New candlesticks and vases in clear glass or light-colored metals like brass or nickel to hold all those fresh florals.

Aim for a coordinated look by choosing accessories in the same color palette. Neutrals like white and tan paired with pops of colors like sky blue, grass green and daffodil yellow work well for spring.

Add Mirrors and Natural Light

Mirrors help bounce natural light around and make any space feel more open and airy. Consider adding:

  • A large wall mirror or entryway mirror above a console table or bench.

  • A leaner floor mirror in a corner to help expand the sense of space.

  • A mirror tray or mirrored boxes and vases to add subtle shine.

Open curtains and blinds to let in as much natural sunlight as possible. Light immediately improves mood and makes spaces feel warmer and more welcoming.

Style with Spring Colors

Update paint, pillows, and other fabrics in cheery springtime hues. Some fresh color combinations to try include:

  • Pale green, sunshine yellow and robin’s egg blue for a youthful, springy palette.

  • Coral and mint green for tropical vibes.

  • Lavender and sage green for a soothing spa-like feel.

  • Robin’s egg blue and peach for an Easter color story.

Swapping heavy winter fabrics like wool and velvet for lighter linen, cotton and chambray also helps usher in warmer weather.

Deep Clean Floors and Walls

During winter months, entryways can collect dirt, road salt, and grime. Give the space a deep clean by:

  • Washing walls and wiping down baseboards. Use a mild soap and water solution and a soft cloth.

  • Cleaning out entryway closets and coat racks. Remove any leftover coats and jackets to launder before storing for next winter.

  • Vacuuming and mopping floors. Pay extra attention to entry mats and rugs.

This top-to-bottom deep clean will make the space feel brand new.

Add New Rugs or Runners

An easy way to instantly refresh the look is by rolling out new, spring-ready rugs. Some seasonal updates to try:

  • Jute or sisal rugs with natural fiber textures.

  • Pastel or floral-patterned rugs that reflect spring colors.

  • Thin runners layered over wood floors or tile to define the entry space.

Browse thrift and vintage shops for unique secondhand finds. You can switch these out again when colder months return.

Display Seasonal Decor

Swap out any lingering winter decor for spring accents like:

  • Pretty wreaths and garlands made from new blossoms, pastel ribbons, butterfly appliques, etc.

  • Bunnies, birds, butterflies, and other animal figurines that symbolize spring.

  • Wooden signs and wall art with cheery sayings like “Hello Spring!” or “April Showers Bring May Flowers.”

  • Galvanized buckets, watering cans, and wheelbarrows placed to hold umbrellas, shoes, or florals.

These whimsical and nostalgic pieces instantly evoke the spirit of spring.

Infuse Fresh Scents

Scent is intrinsic to memory. Infuse springtime freshness by adding:

  • Essential oil diffusers with invigorating scents like lemongrass, eucalyptus, or citrus.

  • Scented candles that evoke the essence of spring like lemon verbena, fresh linens, and wildflowers.

  • Small dishes of potpourri using seasonal flowers and herbs.

Wonderful scents are one of the simple pleasures of spring. Use them to create an amazing first impression in your entryway.

With just a few simple updates, you can completely refresh your entryway for spring. Focus on light colors, natural textures, fresh greens and florals, and seasonal scents. A revitalized entryway sets a cheerful, welcoming tone for the season ahead.
