Nothing says Home Sweet Home like a magnificent front door. Actually, it is what sets the tone and the feel of the entire living space – the front door is what creates the first impression and what sets apart a house from a home. So, here are a couple of tricks courtesy of the seasoned Elite Cleaning staff to perk up your door. This project will be fairly easy to do and will bring such a refreshment to your front porch and the yard.
1. Ornaments, ornaments, ornaments
This is the easiest tip that actually doesn’t involve doing any sort of work on the door itself, but rather on your surroundings. Add a lively flowerpot next to the entrance that will be in the right shade just like your door. Bring the lovely and soothing melody to your home by adding some interesting wind chimes. A colorful doormat could be an easy and cheap game-changer, too.
2. Update Your Door Numbers
They have to be visible, that’s their main purpose, but no one said that they can’t look fabulous and really grasp the attention at the same time. There are so many styles, sizes, and fonts you can choose from. Apart from the looks, the placement is also very important, too. This is also a quick and noticeable hack you can finish in a matter of minutes.
3. Fresh Paint, Beware!
Add some color to your entrance and make it pop amidst the neutral shades of your facade. This is probably the hack that requires a lot of time, and the most of it should actually be allotted to choosing the right color. Pick a color that will go well with the patio, the porch, and the general surroundings. If you want a cheerful greeting every time you pull up to your house, pick a lively shade and paint away!
4. Awesome Knocker
Again, one of the simplest yet noticeable hacks you can do for the quickest makeover. There are so many different knockers you can choose from, so make sure you pick one that will truly scream: “You”. Use the wrought iron knockers for an elegant and prestigious feel or choose an interesting design like the popular dragon theme, a dragonfly, a sea animal or anything similar.
5. New Door
This is probably the most expensive hack on this list, but you can always choose the door in a different style. If you had the traditional entrance, pick a modern one now. Or if you want more light, use the opaque glass door type. They are fully functional, provide privacy, yet allow some light to seep through the pane.
