Make Your Front Door Pop
The entrance to your home is the first page in the story of your life that you are painting for your guests. Why make it boring? Choose a bright red, blue, green, or yellow paint color that shows off the personality of you and your family!
Give it a Glow
We are attracted to beautifully lit spaces. Make sure that your front porch exudes and ambiance of warmth and welcome. There are all kinds of great fixtures out there. Choose a few different lighting options that you can turn off and on according to the season and time of day. An over head light is a must, if you have a seating area make sure to include a lamp or two, too.
Make Sure They Can Find You
Nothing is more frustrating than looking for an address and not being able to find the numbers. Make sure your guests – and the mail man – can find you! Whether you make unique wooden numbers or hand paint them onto your door or wall, just make sure they are easy to read and find.
