Warm up your welcome with a front door makeover

Update your home’s first impression with a front door makeover. Whether you need a new entry door, a fresh coat of paint or some updated hardware, refreshing your front door is an easy, DIY do-over that always gets attention.

Here are some of our favourite ways to freshen up a home’s first impression.

 

Style Switch

The biggest way to make an impactful change to your front door is to change the style entirely. If you’ve always had a solid door, opt for something with glass panels. Or, go from a rather traditional single rectangular panel to a more modern exterior door with multiple panels of glass.

Whether modern or traditional, the style of door you choose has a way of changing the entire feel of your home. Do what feels right for you but try to stay true to the overall design of your home.

 

Colour Code

Nothing makes a statement like a splash of colour, or the moody addition of black. This is as true a fashion in clothing as it is in home exteriors. To make a change to your home’s curb appeal without switching out the entire door, opt repaint it instead. While a lot of people like to match the front door to the rest of a home’s trim colour, that is definitely not a rule. Some of the most gorgeous home exteriors feature doors swathed in standalone colours, such as pinks, cheerful blues, bold reds, and much more.

 

Soften Up with Hardware

Looking to make a low effort, high impact change? Changing your door’s hardware is a great way to make that happen. While you’re in the process of changing your hardware for style, why not look into some of the new smart lock technologies? Smart locks are a great way to keep tabs on who enters your home and when. Definitely something that parents of preteens and teens will appreciate.

 

It’s All in the Details

If you’re just looking for a quick and easy or seasonal update, chances are a bit of décor is just the update you need. Farmhouse-style wreaths, words and restyled door numbers have been flooding Pinterest and Instagram for a while now. These little details can add a lot of charm and require next to no effort (unless you choose to DIY).
