Improving Your
Home's Entryway

hen it comes to home renovations, it's
easy to think of redoing your kitchen
or bathroom. Improvements, however,
can start right at your front door and provide
your residence with an amazing facelift. Here
are some ideas for changes you can make to
your home's entranceway.

A Door to Adore
An overall feel of your home starts with the front door. If
your door isn't up to par, try giving it a fresh bright shade of
paint to welcome guests. Choosing a unique color or interesting finish can make an impact on the exterior of your home,
especially if your home is a basic color. Or if you have a small,
dark entry you may choose to replace the door completely.
Choose a door with a big window or multiple panes of glass,

allowing natural light into the entry. The light will help the
space appear bigger and provide a brighter first impression.
Another option is to add or update address numbers at your
front door. This will add a warm touch to your home and
entrance. Make sure you install the address numbers in a welllit area to make it easy for guests and delivery or emergency
vehicles to find your home. And, if you are planning on putting
your house on the market, the front door can make the sale!

Lock In Your Personality
After your door says welcome, it's time to evaluate your
door's hardware. If your door's handles, locks or knobs are
outdated, replace with a modern set. Or, if you're feeling vintage, opt for the big doorknocker to give your home a historic
feeling. No matter what style you choose, update your door's
hardware to suit your home's personality, giving visitors a great
first impression.
