Upgrade Your Front Door to Boost Curb Appeal


The entrance to your home, including the front door, can set the tone for anyone who comes to visit. If it’s properly maintained and appealing, more of your friends may want to come over to spend time with you. If it’s unkept and visually jarring, people may steer clear of your property. A home’s external appeal, often referred to as “curb appeal”, is the first opinion anyone will have of your home. Designing or updating a home with curb appeal in mind can be challenging, but it’s possible to accomplish.

Your front door is one of the first aspects of your home that visitors will encounter. If you believe that your front door is giving guests a negative first impression, upgrading it can not only boost your home’s appeal, but it can also save you money.

Here are some methods to consider when upgrading your front door.

·      Fix the Door

Anything such as a ripped-out screen or a broken knob or handle will be noticed by everyone, so it’s a good idea to complete repairs to your door if it’s damaged in any way. Most of the time, smaller issues can be resolved quickly and without much hassle. You can also power wash your door to remove any dirt or grime that it has accumulated.

·      Apply a Fresh Coat of Paint

Chipped paint or a color that isn’t visually pleasing can make your home look worn down or outdated, but a fresh coat of paint can help breathe new life into it. The material of the door should be considered when selecting the type of paint you will use, and the color you choose should complement the rest of your home’s exterior. Before applying new paint, we recommend checking your door for any other issues, as you’ll want to repair any existing damage to your door.

·      Use Seasonal Décor

It’s common for homeowners to place a wreath on their front doors when the holidays arrive, and this helps boost curb appeal as well. However, seasonal décor doesn’t have to be limited to only the end of the year. When using seasonal décor on your front door, what you select and how it looks with the rest of your home can make a big difference.

·      Add a Trim or Frame

A trim or frame around your door can help emphasize the overall design, given you can use a contrasting color that helps your door pop. Trim also comes in several different styles and types, including wood, brick, and vinyl.
