If you think your home could use a little curb appeal, you may want to try doing one of these five things to brighten your home entrance. A little diy home decor maybe just the fix you need and leave you with a much more inviting look to your home entrance.
5 Ways To Brighten Your Home Entrance And Add Curb Appeal
Since curb appeal can add value to your home appraisal, working to brighten your home entrance is not only a fun project but it is also a smart one.
1. Colorful Planters
Adding a few colorful planters is one of the easiest and cheapest ways to brighten up your home entrance. Whether you choose a beautiful blue pottery planter or make your own diy planter boxes for your potted plants, you can add a pop of color and have it match any existing decor.
2. Inviting Front Door
An inviting front door is a huge part of the home entrance curb appeal. You may be able to spruce or your existing doors with a fresh coat of paint. Of, if you are like me, you may just want a fresh new door all together (mine is rather weathered), You can choose from solid oak doors that have a great look and feel or go with more contemporary front doors like the one in the photo above that I found at Door Store America. It is an Exterior Solid Douglas Fir door with 6 Frosted Lites and 2 Long Panels. Choosing updated door hardware is another great way to make your new or existing door even more attractive.
3. Attractive, Large House Numbers
Adding attractive house numbers is another great way to add curb appeal. If you don’t have an ideal place to add the house numbers, consider adding a DIY House Numbers Sign like the one, I pictured above.
New lighting fixtures can literally brighten up your home entrance and the light can make it more appealing as does the fixture itself. Some lighting fixtures can be more expensive than you might have thought but choose one that makes a statement and that matches your door hardware (both in style and color). I personally love the one I chose above from Kichler Lighting but you may choose more ornate or more simplistic as fits with your style.
Adding a seasonal wreath is another fun way to make your home entrance a little more inviting. This is an easy and affordable option though it is more fleeting than the other ways I have mentioned of adding curb appeal. Above is an example of a fun DIY Autumn Wreath.
There are even more projects that can add curb appeal but they may be more time intensive and cost more- such as landscaping and updating the paint job. However,these five exterior quick fixes will help you start adding curb appeal to your home entrance right now. A brighter, more inviting home entrance is just a few steps away.
