7 easy ways to refresh the look of your front door

Your front door is the entrance to your home, and it’s likely the first thing people see when they approach your house. As such, it has a big impact on your home’s curb appeal. Indeed, the appearance of your front door can set the tone for the rest of your home. Here are seven easy ways to refresh the look of your front door.

 

1. Wash it
Giving your door a thorough cleaning is a simple way to restore its look. Give it a good wipe down, and use window cleaner on glass surfaces. Also, be sure to clear away any debris around your entryway.

 

2. Paint it
Applying a fresh coat of paint is an inexpensive way to improve the appearance of your front door. The colour you choose can make a big first impression. Choose a vibrant new shade or stick to your existing colour scheme.

 

3. Add trim
Without trim, a front door can look unfinished. Adding trim will help to highlight your entryway.

 

4. Install glass accents
Installing a glass insert will make your front door look brand new. It’s a great way to let in natural light and create a more spacious feeling entryway.

 

5. Upgrade your hardware
This is an easy way to update the look of your front door. Get rid of tarnished and outdated hardware. If you can’t afford new hardware, you can spray paint your existing doorknob. Consider updating your light fixtures as well to keep metals in the same tone.

 

6. Hang new house numbers.
Replacing your old house numbers can renew the look of your entryway. Make sure the numbers are at least four inches tall so that they’re visible from the street.

 

7. Decorate with greenery
Adding flowers and plants will brighten your entrance and add a touch of vitality. Use matching flowerpots to add symmetry or hang a wreath to embellish the look of your door. Wreaths and flowers can be changed to reflect the current season.
