Take a look at your home’s front entry. Step back, and ask a few questions: Does it convey your style? Is it well maintained and safe? Does it have an inviting “wow” factor? If your home’s front door entry looks a bit tired, uninspired, or neglected, here’s a list of quick, inexpensive updates to give it the welcome feel you want to convey.
Paint Your Door
Make it pop! If choosing a new paint color intimidates you, search online for photos of painted doors.
Add a wreath that complements your home’s style and colors. Changing it with the seasons provides a fresh look all year long.
Update your house numbers by refinishing or replacing. Have fun with where and how you place them, horizontally or vertically, on the door itself, on the surrounding trim, or on a decorative wall mount.
Swap Out Door Hardware
Update your door’s style and security with new hardware. Depending on the style you want, the complementary hardware could be a traditional keyway and lock assembly or one of the latest electronic locks.
Replace Door Knocker
Fancy or fun, door knockers add charm to your front door. Express your style.
Upgrade the Doorbell
If your doorbell button needs a refresh, replace it with a finish that matches your door’s hardware, or consider updating with a video doorbell for security.
Stage Your Door
Frame your entry with plants and pots. The walls surrounding and near your door frame make wonderful places for adding a wall planter or outdoor art.
Add a Doormat
Say welcome with a doormat that expresses your home’s personality. Be sure it’s large enough for the scale of your front door and entryway.
Update the Kick Plate
Refinish or replace a worn kick plate. Its purpose is functional as well as esthetic – if you update door hardware, don’t neglect the kick plate.
Light it Up
Maintain, update, or add lighting for safety and beauty. Lanterns with battery candles add a warm and inviting light.
