If you are changing the exterior of your home, the best way to start is with a makeover of your front entrance. Did you know that your front door is the first thing people see when they come to your home and the last thing they see when they leave. While your front entrance may not be at the top of your home makeover list, it definitely should be! Our crew at Xtreme Home Products, located in Mooresville, NC, are always willing to lend a helping hand. In this article, we will talk about ways to give your front entrance a makeover.
Painting Your Front Door
While you may not be able to replace your front door right now, there are still ways to give your front door that new look and that is with painting it. Even though your front door is a small canva, giving it a fresh new paint job will really impact the way your entrance looks. Most homeowners pick this as their time to give their home a little bit of their own personality. Changing your door to a bold color, will really give you the aesthetic you are looking for.
Adding Windows Around Your Door
This isn’t always a budget friendly option, it is still something that will really change the front entrance of your home. It gives you the option of letting in that beautiful natural lighting and changes the look of your exterior and interior of your home. Adding transom windows or sidelights may be something you are missing in your home.
Adding Decor to Your Entrance
This is a time to let your creativity shine! Adding your decor to your front entry is so fun and easy to do. While you are adding the decor around your front entrance, it gives you ways to compliment and bring attention to your front door without even trying. Some tips that I have to help you decorate your entry are:
- Start Decorating From the Bottom Start with adding plants, door mats, rocking chairs, little items like that without, of course, cluttering your entry. You don’t want to go overboard with the decor so that when people are walking up they are tripping over things. Starting to decorate at the bottom helps bring the eyes to your beautiful front door.
- Compliment the Door When adding decor to your entry you want to add colors that are going to compliment your door. This will help accentuate the front of your home. The best part of this being the exterior, is that you can pick your own color palette that can be totally different from the interior of your home.
- Contrast Over the Door We all love adding door decor such as wreaths, signs, lettering, even welcome mats. When adding these items to your decor, make sure you are using contrasting colors. When adding colors with the same hue on a door, it can sometimes make your doors look dirty or make the item hard to read.
