New landscaping would be on my list for beautifying this home.
Can white area above the door be camouflaged? Perhaps paint it the color of the roof and add a glass panel as in photo below: A significant transformation

A red door and trim to match the color of the stone. Chimney Corners Remodel

Here is a link to many atrium ideas:

I agree with Tancalgal that new landscaping could help emphasis the front door. I would go with lower shrubs and some grasses. If you let us know what zone you are we can suggest plants.

Most of Oklahoma is in zone 7 with some in zone 6 and 8. So... I picked 7. You can plant low growing holly like (Ilex vomitoria 'Condeaux') or hydranges. A good shrub tree for the left side of the door could be Lagerstromia indica catawaba.

Thank you all for your suggestions. I loved all of them!! Will paint solar panel color of roof and move shrubs in front; along with planting hydrageas. I'll follow up with pictures when I get to move in.
