Crazy for Doors!

I love doors!  It’s as simple as that!   Doors can be plain or fancy, antique or contemporary.  No matter what their design, they welcome people into your home.   I guess we could say doors are the “smile” on your home’s “face”.  😉

It’s easy to spruce up your door if you want a change.  The easiest and least expensive way is with a can of paint.  And don’t be afraid of a little color.  I have a pale mint green door, but my home is predominately in the tan/brown palette.  There is no green in any other place on my home, besides plants in pots….but it works.   You can change out the hardware on the door, add new house numbers, hang a wreath or put a kick plate at the bottom of the door for easy changes.

In addition to sprucing up the door, you can add items to your porch or entry steps to enhance the entryway too.  Potted plants, a climbing vine, a new rug or some large rocks in the flower beds near your steps will give a new look to the front of your house.  Cleaning up the flower beds and adding new plants where there are gaps is a good idea too.  (and cheap!)

Some doors have great architectural elements and fine details.  Some doors have windows, transoms or sidelights.  Some doors are simple and blank.  Whatever door you have, you can make it into the showpiece of your home with just a few easy and inexpensive DIY steps.
Here are some doors I found on my travels.   Maybe these doors will give you inspiration to change even one item for your entryway!  Enjoy!
