Inviting Front Doors for Statement-Making Style

First impressions matter. Start the spring season with a fabulous front entry for eye-catching curb appeal.

Enhance a front door space with a charming porch. For this mini-makeover, designer John Gidding used beautiful red flowers and a red planter to tie in the traditional red door for an inviting entryway.

Choosing the perfect front door can be a daunting decision. Just how much color is too much? According to HGTV’s Curb Appeal and Curb Appeal: The Block designer and architect John Gidding, color is the key to a welcoming front entry space. Whether using stain or paint, don’t be afraid to branch out of your comfort zone with your front door.

Still not ready to embrace a bold new color? Style and architectural design are also key elements to the perfect front door.  From twinkling porch lighting to majestic door molding, the front entry area of a home is crucial to charming curb appeal. Use your front door as a way to enhance the overall style of your home. Whether your home is a Spanish hacienda, Georgian mansion or charming cottage, choose a front door that suits the style for crave-worthy curb appeal. Browse the photos below for inspiration.
