You get one chance to make a first impression. Applying that to our homes, then the front door should make a statement.
Adding pizzazz to your front entrance is an easy, low-cost way to up your home’s curb appeal. Try painting your door a pretty shade that coordinates with your home’s color. Make sure there is a contrast between the front door and the facade of the home. An example that works well on a contemporary home is the combination of a striking blue color and soft frosted glass.
However, you don’t have to paint your door a bold color to achieve a striking effect. Sometimes the color of natural wood or stain can bring out the brilliant artistry behind a beautiful antique door. And hardware adds an additional boost to the power of your front entrance. A noteworthy door-knocker creates a powerful statement of elegance on homes of any age.
Other ways to beautify your home’s entry are adding appealing house numbers to your entrance and placing a potted plant or two by the front door, framing the door with color.
