Go Bold

When you are choosing a colour for your front door, pick something that makes you happy.  Don’t be afraid to show the world a little personality. It’s also a great way to make your house stand out on the block.

 

Mix and Match Pots

Create a welcoming environment. Line your walk with planter boxes leading to your front door. Mix and match planter boxes but try to keep similar colours. Let the flowers be the star.

 

Add a Little Shine

Give your door a face-lift by simply updating your hardware and door knocker. There are a lot of new options out there to suit any taste and price point.

Replace Your Doormat

This one is so simple and there are so many choices in the marketplace from sassy to industrial. Doormats can be fun and practical. Change up the mat every season to add a smile to your visitors’ faces.

 

Update your Exterior Door

A new front door will add so much to your homes’ curb appeal. The options are endless from rustic to classic and most doors can be customized with glass lites. With some basic tools and a little knowledge you can replace your front door in a day.
