Front Door Blahs
fontier
March 10, 2014 in Design Dilemma
We are trying to improve the curbside appeal of a home we bought that we will be reselling shortly. We have added foundational plantings to the front of the house, and we will be repainting.
I am looking for ideas for the front doors. We are not going to invest in replacing or repainting them. Is it appropriate to hang wreaths on this style of doors? Any other ideas? Thanks!

I should have mentioned we will be adding flowers to the window boxes, and there are hanging baskets that will go at the left of the door, middle of garage, and end of garage. Is that enough brightening up? Please give us some ideas and thanks!

Wow, never would have thought of that! Very nice. We were thinking of going with a greige color or darker taupe on the house, leaving the white trim. The brightness is very pretty though.

Have you thought about painting the front doors to make the entenceway more colorful. Great idea about the flowers. Possibly add an urn with flowers to the right of the door. You can take that with you when you sell.

We thought about painting, we may just run out of time. I'm not sure what all is involved in painting them?

It is the garage and windows that throw this house off track. Take down the window shelves (window boxes?). Paint the trim a dark gray like the roof.

I don’t know how much you want to spend, but the front doors are not in keeping with your home…too Victorian in style.

Thank you so much for all of the ideas. I never would have thought of a pergola either. That is a nice touch.

Paint the house trim with a shade a bit darker than the shade you pick for the house. Don't paint the garage doors the same as the trim, but paint them the same color as the house. Paint the door a different color altogether from the rest of the house. For instance, grey house, darker grey trim, and a red door.
