Are you a homeowner looking for home exterior projects that make a big impact on a small budget? Something as simple as adding a new front door can do wonders to revitalize your front entryway and boost your curb appeal.
One of the most overlooked home exterior projects begins before you ever step foot inside the home, and that’s the front door. While an entry door is necessary in protecting us from the harsh elements and unwanted intruders, its relevance in relation to curb appeal is often underestimated.
If you’re ready to take your front entryway to the next level, consider investing in a new front door installation.
Go Bright and Bold
Make your front door pop by choosing a bright, bold color. Instead of opting for a bland, neutral color, step outside your comfort zone and pick a vibrant shade of red, blue, or yellow. Save the neutrals for the interior of your home, throw caution to the wind, and have some fun with your new front door.
Use Contrasting Colors
Another way to make your front door stand out is to consider using contrasting colors to complement your new front door. For example, pick one color for the door frame and a different color for the actual door. With contrasting it’s important to factor in the color of the home’s exterior. If the exterior color of your home is lighter shade, then opt for a darker trim and vice versa.
The Wonders of Wood
When it comes to wood, you really can’t go wrong. It is a classic choice with serious staying power. Not only are wood doors aesthetically pleasing to the eye but they’re extremely versatile and provide numerous design and stain options to choose from. Passersby will surely stop and stare at a front entryway showcasing an elegant, classy wood door.
Add a Touch of Glass
Since you’re planning on a new front door installation anyway, why not go all out and consider a front door with beautiful, stylish windows? Or take it a step further and add a sidelight or two.
Decorative sidelights and doors containing windows provide many benefits, including:
Adding a Personal Touch.
The style of your home reflects your personality, from the color on your walls to the furniture in your living room. A new front door installation with decorative glass windows or a sidelight are easy ways to add a personal touch to your entryway. Door glass inserts can turn an ordinary door into a piece of art.
Brightening Up the Entryway
Natural light makes everything appear more beautiful, including your entryway. Doors with glass windows and sidelights will flood your home with glowing, natural light versus the artificial light that comes from adding porch lights.
Maintaining Your Privacy
Some cautious homeowners might be apprehensive to add glass near their front door because of privacy concerns, but there are plenty of options available to maintain your privacy. Frosted and opaque glass allow loads of light without sacrificing your privacy or home security.
Boost Curb Appeal
If you plan on selling your home soon, it’s especially important to do whatever you can to increase the value of your home. Choosing a front door with glass will dramatically improve the aesthetics of your home and make it more appealing to buyers.
