Front Door Fun Because First Impressions Matter. A little reminder what your front door says about you and your home! Add a touch of personality with color and decoration!
Your home’s curb appeal makes it a happier place to live. You should feel a sense of pride when you pull into the driveway, which might not appear if your front door doesn’t match your personality. First impressions matter, so use these ideas to have a little front door fun.
You can freshen up your front door, make it festive or do simple remodeling projects on any budget. They’ll make your home look better and even improve how it does on the market if you’re looking to sell.
Paint a New Color
Even if you have a porch, yearly weather patterns will affect the appearance of your front door. Direct sunlight will fade the color, but there’s an easy fix. Find a new paint color and apply it with a sealant. You’ll weather-proof the paint so your front door maintains the new bright shade even during sunny summer months.

Sometimes a color that you might not usually choose create the most exciting of spaces!
How about a fun color that adds charm… warmth… a touch of coziness and looks totally amazing! Oh so many possibilities.
Replace the Weathered Model
Rain can also damage your front door and ruin your home’s curb appeal. Raindrops seep into the wood, where the cells reabsorb the water and swell before shrinking in direct sunlight. Freezing temperatures will warp the wood when it’s still in the swelling process.
It’s always best to replace chipped, cracked or warped front doors. Newer models will last longer and improve your home’s security. Find one within your budget and install it in minutes during your next free weekend afternoon.
Remember Your Garage Door
Most people use their garage door more often than their front door. It’s how you access your home and protect your vehicles. Your garage door has a significant influence on your house’s first impression because you see it every day.
You can always upgrade your garage door to give your house an entirely new look. Browse contour features or pick a contrasting color to enhance your garage door curb appeal and highlight your home’s most frequently used feature. It’s easy to dress up any garage with colors, features and accessories, so have fun looking at different options to discover what will make your home shine.
Wood is guaranteed to add a rich touch to the space.
Or pick a nice complimentary color for the unexpected.

Wreaths are popular for front doors because they’re so easy to personalize. With just a few art supplies, you can make one in any style to match your home’s appearance. Change them out as often as you like so they’re always a fresh way to welcome family and visitors.

Find Seasonal Porch Pieces
People also decorate their front doors with seasonal porch pieces. Add mini Christmas trees on either side during the winter. Hang lights around the doorframe or place festive pillows on your outdoor furniture. They all draw attention to your front door while spreading out the decorations to other parts of your front porch.
Something as simple as pretty wreaths… a throw … pillow… rug and welcome mat creates that homey feeling and screams Welcome!
A sweet space for conversation give the space an inviting feel and so simple to create!
