Difficult to know where to put this hope here is ok..

A very minor decision but one I've agonised about so much it's delayed getting this sign made for 6 months but after another dash down the alley (!) in my dressing gown this morning I've decided I MUST get on with it!

We live in a small terraced Victorian cottage. Our front room is v small and consequently we have a large curtain and sofa in front of the front door and use our back door as main door.

We are forever getting knocks at the front door- which we can't now open- and have to scoot down the alley and ask them to use back.

I'd like to get a sign made for front door- along lines of " PLEASE USE BACK DOOR" or " WE USE THE BACK DOOR"

Any suggestions for the nicest wording for this??

Thanks in advance..

Not "we use the back door" as it doesn't tell them to use the back door.

How about "This Door Does Not Open. Please Use the Back Door"

Haha true Savoy- I thought about a selective list of those who are welcome to use back door but DH veto'd.

How about 'door not in use'.

Please use other door

This is not a door..

Please approach from the rear.

Is that a joke?
Sniggers all round, from the guy making the sign onwards.
