Show off your personality and style before anyone evens enters your home! Let your front door make a grand impression. Just remember, if you are thinking of selling your home, you might want to show a little less personality so your home will attract the most buyers.
Use Door Knockers
You can use a traditional door knocker which adds an element of understated elegance or you can enjoy joying off your family’s personality with one like this. Just remember, you might want to change out this type of personalized door knocker before putting your home on the market.
Use Daring Colors
Paint is the easiest way to add drama to your entrance. Use bold, daring colors to show off your personality and to make your home stand out in a crowd. If you aren’t sure which colors would be safest to use when selling your home, just ask Gary Haygood and he’ll be able to guide you on specifics in your neighborhood.
Accessories enhance your personal wardrobe, and they can liven up your home too. Don’t think of wreaths as a holiday thing: they can actually decorate your door all year round! You can also add:
- a few planters or flowerpots beside the door
- a nice mat
- a cute vinyl sticker or decal on the door
- letter monogram
- hanging flower basket
These simple and yet powerful additions will transform your entry!
Especially for those who can’t play much with the exterior and landscaping of the house, investing in a bold front door is a must. Glass panels on the top of front doors bring style and elegance to it, while you can also choose a door with beautiful moldings and panels.
Playing with symmetry is a great way to add elegance and sophistication to your house. Pay attention to the architectural elements and make them fit and match each other on both sides of the door. Adding some light fixtures and planters is a good way to play with the idea!
Play With Different Elements
If your front door still feels a little bland, try playing with different elements. You can make a strong statement by adding playful elements that complement the door, such as these planters in the picture above. The green and the orange make each other pop while the style of the planters add a nice touch to the overall design.
You can make an incredible impact if you match your front door colors with flowers, especially when they are this big and impressive. Choose a dark green to match your plants, or a pink or yellow to match your colorful flowers. You can use planters placed beside the door or even plant them in your front yard, improving the landscape with it.
Don’t underestimate the power of details. They can give your front door the exact thing it needs, and add a sophisticated and stylish touch to it. Golden hardware is super trendy nowadays, and it matches basically any color. Add golden or brass handles, knocker, and a mail slot to improve your front door and curb appeal!
Don’t be afraid to bring your own personality to your front door. Like painting? Paint a nice floral or abstract piece on it. Are you a music fan? Maybe take inspiration from this picture above and add some piano tiles to it. Just let me reiterate, if you are planning on selling your home in the near future, you would want to avoid making the entrance too personal.
