Your front door is one of the first aspects of your home that a visitor sees. It is also one of the last things they see, as that is how they exit as well! Your front door is a critical component of the first impression of the property, and it can leave a long-lasting memory of their time there. Today, we are going to share with you 5 ways to highlight your front door.
5 Ways to Highlight Your Front Door
How is your guest going to get to the front door? Is it a dirt path or a trampled-down section of grass? Maybe you are ready to kick that old look to the curb and install a stone pathway, a wooden boardwalk, or a cement walkway? There are endless walkway designs, styles, and materials that you can utilize to highlight your front door.
Let’s face it; a dark doorway is creepy and usually looks like something out of a horror film. You can make your home warm and inviting simply by adding appropriate lighting. A light fixture next to the door is all that it takes.
Add a pop of color to the front of your home by landscaping the entrance to your door. Whether you line the walkway with flowers, create a magical garden for guests to walk through, or simply design a few bright planters, it makes a world of difference in first impressions. Flowers, trees, and shrubs add vitality and a breath of fresh air for anyone who enters your home.
Why not create a landing zone for yourself and guests to enjoy the front of your home? A small couch, swing, or pair of chairs can easily add to the overall aesthetic of your home. Plus, it allows you to comfortably wait for your guests or watch over playing children without having to leave your doorstep.
Finally, one of the easiest steps to highlight your front door is adding seasonal decor. Here in Sherman Oaks, many homes have the space and ability to decorate for the changing seasons. Whether you add pumpkins at Halloween, flags for Independence Day, or snowflakes for winter, you can spruce up your front door with just a smidge of decorating!
