Talk about a first impression! The entrance to your home is the first thing people see when they arrive — so why shouldn’t it make a statement? Whatever your style or budget, there are plenty of ways to add an instant dose of curb appeal through your home’s entrance. Here are our favorite front door styles and some contemporary trends that steal the show.
1. Extra Wide Doors
Narrow openings are being replaced by generously proportioned doors. Extra-wide doors command attention and make moving furniture in and out a breeze.
2. Arched Lines
Break away from straight lines and make a big statement with an eye-raising arched top.
3. Glass Peek-a-Boo
Let the light shine through! Add dimension and contrast with glass paneling in your doors or with framing windows.
4. Oversized House Numbers
Make life easy for postal workers and any guests trying to find your house from the street. Go bold with larger-than-life house numbers.
5. Entry Simplicity
Minimalism is all the rage these days. Keep your front porch and entryway clean and clutter-free.
6. Pops of Color
A tale as old as time. One of the easiest and most popular ways to make your home entrance stand out is with a brightly colored door — just pick your favorite paint color or have an expert help select an option that perfectly complements your siding.
7. Dark Color Contrast
Say goodbye to the white-picket-fence era and embrace the modern moodiness that comes with deep paint hues like black and navy.
