4 Ways To Create A Welcoming Front Entry

4 Ways To Create A Welcoming Front Door (1)

You put a lot of work into making sure the inside of your house looks lovely — but what about the outside? A welcoming front porch can set a positive tone for anyone who comes to your door and can serve as a great introduction to your home. Here are a few quick, budget-friendly ways to give your front door a makeover.

 
Add Some Color – Does your doorway leave something to be desired? Painting your front door can bring a bold pop of color to your entryway! It’s easy to do yourself: Just remove or tape over the hardware, sand the surface, and put down a few coats of a fun color.

Go Greener- Nothing energizes a space like plants! Whether you favor more traditional planters on either side of the door, hanging plants, or even potted flowers on a table or stand, try bringing some greenery to your porch. It’s a good idea to think about how these plants will complement or contrast with your landscaping in the yard too.

Upgrade Your Doormat – Not only does a doormat protect the interior of your home from the wet or dirty feet of your guests, it can also lend some personality to your door. A “welcome” mat is classic, but there are plenty of funny, sweet, and creative mats you can choose to show your visitors what kind of home they’re about to enter.

Furnish It- Even if you don’t have a full porch, a little furniture in the front can make your home appear more welcoming, and of course, it can encourage you to spend some time out there! A rocking chair or bench can fit on or beside even the smallest of porches, whereas a larger porch might benefit from a table and chairs, or maybe a porch swing. Don’t forget to dress up that furniture with some outdoor throw pillows, citronella candles (ambient and mosquito-repellent!), and maybe even some twinkle lights to brighten up evening relaxation.
