Exiting a room may come with all of the pomp and excitement of entering one in case you've taken the time to think about above-door decoration. ("Is that a thing?" You may be thinking about. To which we say: Sure, why not?) This swath of wall area above many doors --those that lead between rooms and from indoors to outdoors both--can be easy to dismiss if you have four additional walls or, gasp, a whole house to decorate. But all you will need to do is give it a passing thought and perhaps a two or two. Once adorned, the doorway will feel more finished and in some cases completely opened up--far better than feeling nothing at all, if you ask us. Below are a few of some of our decor ideas.
