Nothing makes more of a statement about a home than the front door.
The front door is the first thing people see when they go to your home. Since the front door is a key focal point when people go to your house it is important to make a good impression. Remember first impressions may end up being lasting impressions.
According to the latest research, it takes just ten seconds to decide whether or not you will buy a house. Four of those ten seconds will be standing at the front door. According to designer Ceciia Neal, “Your front door reflects what you think about a house. A door can sell a property.” You never get a second chance to make a good impression, so why not get it right the first time?
There are many ways to make a front door and entry way more appealing without breaking the bank. If you have an open porch, spruce it up, add seasonal decorations, or a basket of flowers. Use window boxes or hanging baskets. Put down a new door mat, nothing too crazy. Make sure the front door is not in need of any repairs, and give it a good cleaning. Create a welcoming entrance leading to your front door with flower beds and big pots of flowers.
Consider painting your front door to an eye catching color that makes a statement. Change your door knob, or maybe try decorative hardware. You will be surprised how these few changes can transform your front door into an inviting entrance.
