Just love a beachy door? Check out these 5 ideas to transform your door from basic to beautiful!

The easiest way to add coastal flair to your front door is with a colorful Lobster Rope Doormat.

Handwoven from sturdy fishing rope used to tether lobster traps to the buoys in the sea, our Lobster Rope Doormats are distinctively nautical and work for all 4 seasons.

Plus, they’re the best outdoor mats for any weather and will last for years - resistant to mold and mildew, they can tackle the rain, heat, snow, and mud. These all-weather rope doormats come in so many different colors, too. You can enjoy the cheery coastal blues or go for the light earthy tones - we’ve got an outside doormat for any decor. Check out these tried and tested tips on how to choose your own outdoor doormat.

Instead of using matching planters to increase visual interest, try varying the heights of your containers.

Work in three's by positioning a large planter in the middle of two smaller planters to create a balanced cluster and add personality to your front porch.

Mix and match different textures, patterns and colors. We love how our super cute Lobster Rope Baskets work as outdoor planters, bringing coastal color accents to your door decor. Pair them with a Lobster Rope Doormat for a charming coastal look.

The Handwoven Wicker Hanging Basket is a favorite of ours, too - they’re so easy to update for every season. From soft spring tulips and summery hydrangeas to mums in autumn and evergreen in winter, you can fill up this versatile basket with seasonal florals

Opt for a timeless all-season wreath.

You can enjoy coastal sophistication throughout the entire year with our Hampton Rope Wreath that has beach-inspired accessories that can be swapped out for each season, like the winter starfish for Christmas holidays or the starfish/seagrass accessory for summer. Plus, it’s handcrafted from burlap and manila roping that can withstand the harsh weather elements.

If you love seasonal wreaths, our Lemon and Trailing Greenery Wreath brings a splash of sunny color to the front door that’s perfect for summer.

We also love this soft-to-the-touch Myrtle Leaf Greenery Wreath that’s great for fall - give your guests a warm welcome when you hang this festive wreath on your front door.

Do get personal.

Another great addition to your coastal front door decor is our personalized nautical wood signs. They arrive unfinished and ready to paint for a perfect match to your existing door decor.

Just remember the 3 P’s with these super versatile monograms - personalize, paint, and pair them with your favorite Lobster Rope Doormat for a front door statement that’s uniquely you.

Sprinkle in coastal accessories but don’t overdo it.

Add one or two unique nautical accessories to achieve just the right amount of coastal charm instead of kitsch. Here are our recommendations:

Usher in nautical colors with Nautical Decorative Wooden Buoys that add visual interest with their worn, weathered look.

Or throw in a couple of Nautical Flags that let you spell out your favorite message, phrase, or your family name.


Top off your beautiful new coastal door with a bit of whimsy: We love how our Recycled Flip-Flop Animals add unexpected charm. They’re sustainably crafted from recycled flip-flops collected from beaches and waterways- all the more reason to add them to your beach home.


A splash of bright, bold paint is a surefire way to create your own coastal front door and welcome guests to your own sea-inspired home. Check out these beach front door ideas we adore so much, thanks to their tropical-inspired touches!
