Does your front door, by any chance, need some sprucing up, but the idea of spending a boatload of money on a door isn’t that appealing? Look no further than this article, where we will elucidate the many ways you can make simple changes to your plain front door, which will go a long way in increasing its curb appeal.
If you’re redecorating the interior of your home, sprucing up your plain Victorian front door won’t hurt. Granted, doors generally fade in the background, deemed unimportant, but that’s not true. A door is an important part of the overall image of your home. Having a cozy, and beautiful interior won’t amount to anything if you have a shabby, or plain door, which delivers the first impression of your home.
Ways to spice up your door
In this article, we will elaborate on some of the ways you can add value to your door. You can also keep up with the latest trends or keep an eye on what the people around you are doing with their doors, instead of spending a fortune on a door.
Redecorating the door
Redecorating the door is time-saving and gets the job done. You can use holiday decorations, for example, Christmas wreaths, shiny baubles, flowers, and pine cones to make your bespoke front door more appealing. The same decorations can be used for holiday decorations, or whatever the occasion calls for, saving time, and money, all the while getting the job done. You can even make wreaths from leaves which will add some much-needed colour to your plain door. This method is especially beneficial if you don’t have a lot of space at the front of your house, and want to limit the decorations to the door itself.
If that doesn’t gel with you, you can also change the knobs of your door, switching up from a simple doorknob to strike plates, knobs or locksets with different finishes, for example, brushed nickel, polished chrome, or antique brass.
Such a simple thing as a doorknob can change the overall appearance of your door.
Dress it up
Another way you can make your door appealing is by dressing it up. The door is your canvas. One way to go is by painting it with an eye-popping colour that makes it contrast with your surroundings. Not only is it eye-catching, but it also makes your door stand out.
Plain doors can also be framed to spice them up.
You can improve the face-value of your door by adding beautiful filigree, art, or sun catchers. As afore-mentioned, wreaths are another option.
Though garden statues don’t contribute to your door directly, they do add curb appeal. You can choose unique sculptures, or have them crafted. Be it doves, owls, or the standard garden gnomes, they go a long way in helping you bring something unique to your door.
Lighting and decoration
Though slightly tricky, landscape lighting is also an option, though it is best to hire a professional for this particular job. Landscape lighting at the base of your steps can spice up your door.
Moreover, if you have a lot of space in front of your door, you can consider using decorative pots, sculptures, or anything unique, and eye-catching.
