In this blog post, Building Envelope Experts will discuss some tips for freshening up your front door. So, if you’ve been a bit unhappy with the look of your front door or need some ideas on how to make it more visually appealing, keep reading!
Add a Fresh Coat of Paint
Adding a fresh coat of paint to your front door is a quick and easy way to make it look new again. Everyone has seen the typical black, white, or brown front door, so don’t be afraid to experiment with your paint options and try a new color! We don’t recommend running to the store and buying bright orange or pink paint, but there are many other choices of paint out there that can really make your front door stand out.
Update the Hardware
You can also update the hardware, such as the doorknob, door knocker, or doorbell, to give it a new look. When these pieces of hardware are worn out or look rusty, they can immediately make your front door unappealing. Changing out the hardware is a quick and inexpensive way to bring your front door back to life.
Add some Decorations or Accessories
You can also add some decorations or accessories to your front door to give it some personality. A wreath, for example, is a classic way to decorate your front door for any season or holiday. Flower pots are another popular option, and they can be used to add a splash of color or to display your favorite plants. Even a small accessory like a doormat can make all the difference and adds some style to your porch as well.
Install a New Door
If you want to make a bigger statement or think there’s no way you can bring your front door back to life, you can consider having a new door installed. This is an especially good option if your current door is damaged or worn down.
