Easy Steps for a Beautiful Front Door | Inner Artist

August 18, 2017

Curb appeal is important, and your front door and surrounding space is one of the first things people notice about your home, so lets make it something special. Here are a few tips to help you create a front door that is welcoming and uniquely you.


The door to your home is the first thing visitors see, and first impressions count. You want that first impression to be inviting and help ensure that they have a pleasant visit.


Creatively Living


Fresh paint or stain for your front door is one of the keys to creating a inviting look to your home. Trends for paint colors tend to last about seven years, so change up your color and have fun!  It can be a dramatic change or just a simple shade change. Remember to touch up and keep the paint looking fresh every so often.  A stained front door should be sanded, stained and refinished every four years to keep it from fading. 


Tip: You can always paint the inside of your front door if your landlord, condominium association, or homeowners association restrict you from painting the outside of your door.




 Changing out potted flowers seasonally is a wonderful way to create a fresh look at your front door. Grouping of a single color have the most impact, especially in larger scale pots.

A black painted front door always has a classic sophistication and timeless endurance.  Simple greenery pops off of the white paint and creates an inviting entrance.

Now that the season of fall is approaching, there many decorative items you can incorporate into the decor at your front door.  Being able to carry my Halloween decorations into Thanksgiving saves me time and energy, so I like stacking hay bales, pumpkins and overflowing chrysanthemums. A scary spider wreath for the door can be added and removed for Halloween without having to change out anything else.

Bring the indoors... outdoor.. makes visitors feel welcome.  Adding a bench, accessories and a pillow or two add a cozy sense of welcome.

Incorporating art to your front door is very easy! While decorating for the holidays, you can add fun plaques to your decorations





For paint colors, there aren’t many colors that shouldn’t be used for a front door, you just want to stay away from muddy colors like a painted brown or a taupe. Muddy colors can detract from a home. Colors help instill emotion and you don't want people feeling dreary as they are about to enter the front door into your home.  Fun, on trend colors for front doors right now are:  Ben Moore Coral Gables and Admiral Blue







Have fun with the front door area of your home! Make sure the door color reflects your personality and is inviting, add plants, wreaths, art pieces, and holiday inspired decor. Your  front door sets the stage for what is to come, so make it unique!
