For today’s post I thought it would be fun to give you some ideas of ways to update your front door! I have had a quart of plum paint in my garage for a few months now waiting to paint my front door… I had all the best intentions of painting it the weekend we bought the paint, but life happens. While we have a lot of other things going on (building my son a new bed, our back deck makeover, helping family move and throwing lots of parties!) I’m still definitely dying to get our front door updated! Now, if only I could find the time… 😉 These are all easy (and inexpensive, to boot!) ways to give your front door some serious style. Have fun!
1. Paint the Door
Neutrals are always good, but if you’re feeling adventurous, try a bold color like yellow, blue or red!
2. Add a Planter Box
Greenery goes a long way in adding style! Try two matching boxes on either side of the door or even a fun hanging house number box.
3. Install New Hardware
I’m not going to lie, I’m a huge fan of black fixtures. Especially in conjunction with neutral house colors. If black isn’t your preference you could always try a nice brushed nickel or aged bronze and consider trying a decorative handle versus a traditional knob too!
4. Add a Fun Doormat
Door mats are a serious style maker! I love ones with fun messages on them, but a classic one can be just as beautiful.
5. Install a New Light
It’s amazing how much difference a nice, new porch light can make! Also, if you have a higher ceiling at your entry, try a pendant light.
6. Add Decor Elements
Hang a wreath on your door, add a small bench, lean a sign against the house, or lanterns are fun!
Don’t you just want to run outside and pretty-up your front door now?? I know I do! Have a great week, friends. 🙂
