1. Make Your Entry Door Stand Out
There are a few different ways you can make your entry door stand out. The material you choose, the design, and the color can drastically impact your overall house design in just one glance.
Here are a few ideas for your front door:
- Stick with wood for an old-time classic feel
- Use a metal door frame for a contemporary feel
- Use a pop of color like yellow, blue, or red to catch someone’s eye at first glance
What you choose to do will have a lot to do with the overall home aesthetic you want to have. So ask yourself, do you want a bold entrance or a more subtle one? Do you want a more modern look or a classic one?
2. Add Curb Appeal
Before anyone even gets to your front entrance, the first thing they see is your landscaping. If it’s cluttered, dead, and lacks color, people may instantly be turned off to your home. But with color, vibrance, texture, and a uniformed cleanliness, you will have them hooked.
Add curb appeal with various types of flowers for a pop of color and some added texture and consider adding potted plants to your front porch to add another dimension.
Make sure you keep your grass watered and trimmed as well as your front lawn bushes so that it comes across as well-kept.
