One of the most overlooked home improvement projects is one that every passerby can see-your front door. While a front door is both functional and necessary in protecting us from the elements and intruders, its style and importance in relation to curb appeal is often underestimated.

If you are looking for a home improvement project that packs a big punch for a small investment, consider adding a new front door to boost your curb appeal.

Bright and Bold

One of the easiest and most effective ways to really make a front door pop is to choose one that is a bright, bold color. Instead of opting for a traditional, neutral color, step outside of your comfort zone and choose a more vibrant shade of blue, red, or yellow.

Use a Contrasting Color

Another way to really make your front door stand out is by using contrasting colors. For example, choose one color for the door frame and a different color for the actual door. When it comes to contrasting, it’s important to also factor in the color of the home’s exterior. If the exterior color of your home is a lighter shade, then opt for a darker trim and vice versa.

Wood is a Solid Choice

Wood doors are a solid choice when it comes to entry doors. Wood is aesthetically pleasing as well as being highly versatile when it comes to design options and stain possibilities. It’s also a secure choice, and if taken care of will last many years. Although wood can be a bit pricey, it’s a great investment and will bring a lot of charm to your curb appeal.

Add Glass

Choosing a new front door with glass windows can add a beautiful, modern touch and elegance to your home’s exterior. In addition to boosting curb appeal, you’ll also get the benefit of more natural light in your home.

Check Out the Hardware

When it comes to hardware, the possibilities are nearly endless. The hardware you choose for your new front door is just as important as the actual door itself as the right hardware can make all the difference in terms of style and function.

First Impressions Count

Making a good first impression definitely matters, especially if you plan on selling your home in the near future. While many home exterior projects can be expensive and complex, adding a new front door is a relatively quick and easy home improvement project that will produce positive results almost instantly.
