As you may have read in the title, we are here to discuss three basic ways to transform your front door and create a stunning look. The first question which may come into your mind would be: what makes transforming a front door so important. The answer is simple; your front door welcomes people into your home. Transforming it will not only make it look brand new but even elevate its curb appeal. Transforming your front door does not necessarily imply changing it. You can use features already present in your door to make it stand out, by simply following some of these tips. Check out the three basic ways to do this effectively through our tips below.
Paint your front door
Painting your front door is the first step in transforming it. If your current colour is already great or recently painted, then at least consider cleaning it to look much better. You can verify which colour works by taping paint samples on your door and observing how it looks at different times of the day, or how it looks as it is opened and closed. After choosing the right colour, clean your door. Use a sponge soaked in warm soapy water to help you do this. After, you can do some sanding and priming and then paint it. Take note that it is best to do this the right way, and you can do this by following the steps we have elaborated in this article: Painting Doors: The Guide To Doing It The Professional Way.
Add more character to your door
Your door can directly reflect its owner by how it is accessorised. For this part you can consider adding or changing the current designs in your door, to represent you more. You can add door knockers, change your doorknobs, and change the design of your door numbers. You can also modernise it by adding LED strip lights that light up automatically through motion sensors or other methods.
Use your surroundings to emphasise your door
Every introduction to a house starts with a front door. You can utilise the space around your door to make sure it pops. You can add ornaments and plants beside your door, carefully choosing a design that won’t stand in the way of your entrance but rather lead to it. You can also change the lighting around it to make sure that your visitors get the vibe you are aiming for.
Your door should properly introduce your house in a way that its look alone can set a high expectation towards what is inside. Make sure you transform your front door to look its absolute best and you can change the overall look of your entire house!
