Ok, I have a decorating pet peeve. Front doors. Let’s face it, the entry is the first place your decorating style is showcased, and it is a main contributor to your curb appeal as well. So many people just accept a cheesy front door picked by their builder, or the former owner, and don’t stop to consider how much it contributes to the overall feel of your home. And it counts even more with small homes, because we have less opportunity to make our home shine! So pull out the paintbrush and try these front door ideas! Can’t you just see a holiday wreath on some of these front doors? This isn’t hard, and it’s a detail you shouldn’t ignore… if you want proof, check out the before and afters at the end of this post!

Front Door Ideas

Front Doors – Paint & Color

So let’s start out with the easiest front door idea ever… Paint! You can change the entire curb appeal of your home with one afternoon and a quart of paint. Let’s start with this pretty & fresh yellow front door from ‘HGTV‘. It really pops against the navy body color. This front door idea works with any style home, it simply uses color to add personality!

Some great inspiration for a bright and fresh entry from ‘BHG‘. Here you have neutral colored home, with a bright organ front door color. This is great way to have a pop of color say, “Hey, we care about our home, and the people who live and visit here!”. My choice, a cool aquamarine.

Front Door Ideas – More Than Paint

Stenciling your house numbers or street name is a great way to update a boring front door… Or use vinyl lettering for a covered entry! From Etsy shop ‘Leen, The Graphics Queen‘.

This is another stenciled front door idea. Remember, you could choose any style stencil to match your home… From ‘Royal Design Studio‘.
