Summer is the best time of year to spruce up your front door with new color and visual appeal. The front door of your home sets the stage for your interior decor and style. Have your front entry tell the story of what’s to come. Create an inviting and interesting entry that will surely make an impression before a guest enters (and you too!).
Since the front door of the home is (usually) the focal point of the main facade, painting it a bright and/or vibrant color, emphasizes it’s importance. Have fun with it and add a splash of color!
Unique details, such as an interesting side window or an unusual style door, draws the eye in. Adding inexpensive details and embellishments, like the resin garland above the door( in the picture below), dresses up a typical entry to make an interesting and unique statement.
No matter your color palette, adding greenery to your entry area, continues the fluidity of bringing the outdoors in and the indoors out. Surrounding your space with plants and flowers is a wonderful way to welcome your guests and to soften up the hard lines of the house surface.
Quieter may be better
Your front door color doesn’t always have to be a show-stopper. A subtle color may be more appealing. The use of light, pastel hues are a nice way to incorporate color but in a quieter way. The light colored greens, yellows, and blues on these doors are so tranquil and inviting.
Showcase your digits on the door. Either in a bold or subtle way, share with everyone the importance of your home. I love the look of putting the numbers on the flat panel of the front door…so elegant and classic.
