For a warm and rustic look, you can’t get much better than a solid wood stained door. It is especially striking paired with white board and batten siding. Simple galvanized buckets are perfect for flanking the front door with plants.

No matter what the style of your front door is, you can add a big impact by painting it a fun color. This particular door already had a lot of design detail. However, the detail almost went unnoticed before it was painted. The bold color and new door handle really makes the door pop.

Another way to highlight the front door is with trim or molding. By updating or replacing your exterior door molding you keep things fresh and add focus to the door.

Here a solid wood door gets a modern update by installing a window light kit, to the door, along with the new cheery color of yellow. I would think that you could also add decorative trim pieces to a plain front door before painting.

Potted Plants

Create a beautiful container garden to add more color and texture to your porch. Even if you don’t have a lot of landscaping in your yard, potted plants add enough impact for good curb appeal. Vary the sizes of the pots to add the most interest. And, if you need a little more height, just set the pots on a small table.
