Your front door is one of the things that your guests first see, so it is essential to make the very best first impression. When neglected, which is unfortunately often the case, front doors can look dull and worn out, but we have come up with some easy fixes and door hardware suggestions. Brightening up your front door is a great way to wholly transform the outside of your home, impress your friends, and increase the potential selling price for when it is time to sell the house and move on.
Replace the Door Numbers
Add your house number to your exterior door to give it a vibe of uniqueness, while also allowing visitors to find your home easily! House letters or numbers make the ideal front door accessory. Replace old numbers for a quick door spruce.
Install a Door Knocker
Go vintage and add a classic door knocker to your door! Go for an animal head or urn to make a statement, or choose a more modern and minimalist approach with a simple bar door knocker.
Update Your Letter Box
Often looking dull or worn out, letterboxes can quickly brighten up your front door. Choose between installing a completely new letterbox, or alternatively just buy a letter plate and give your front door an entirely new look.
Upgrade Your Door Knob
Why not opt for a brand-new door knob or lockset like the Kwikset or Baldwin hardware, to transform the look of your front door? Door knobs and handles tend to get the receiving end of the damage because using them on a daily basis and not taking the time to maintain them can result in a miserable-looking door. Choose from polished brass cottage door knobs or antique cast iron knobs, or go for a modern satin chrome pointed or frosted crystal door knob for your front door. Alternatively, why not choose a statement door knob to transform your exterior door?
Conceal Your Keyhole with Escutcheons
Escutcheons can make your exterior door look smarter and smoother. Designed to surround your door handle or keyhole, they are generally round but can come in all sorts of styles, sizes, and shapes. To give your door a complete look, you can match your escutcheon with your brand-new door knob and door knocker. You can opt for a contemporary square nickel escutcheon, circular polished chrome, or go rustic and vintage with a classy fleur-de-lis shaped iron escutcheon for your front door.
Upgrade to a Glazed Door
If you have a glazed front door, check to see if your glass looking worn and old. To give your door its much-needed facelift, replace the glass! Select from etched, decorative, clear or obscure glass and it will completely change the look of your front door.
A Splash of Paint Can Update Your Door
Bright colours are becoming more popular nowadays, and they are an easy way to transform the look of your home! Alternatively pick a black or dark grey shade to add a classy feel to your entrance.
