Repainting an entire exterior is a huge undertaking — thankfully, that’s not the only way to boost your home’s curb appeal! Making your home the belle of the block is simple if you focus your energy where it counts most: the front door. Read on for 4 design ‘recipes’ to inspire your front door makeover, plus a roundup of cute doormats perfect for a summer refresh.
Cobalt door + citrus planters + copper details. This gracious southern home features a bold blue door, flanked by potted dwarf citrus trees and flowers. Warm metals like the copper lantern and brass door hardware echo the warmth of the brick underfoot, bringing this bold traditional look together.
Yellow door + wall planter + desert pottery. A can’t-miss-it lemon yellow door pops against the crisp white siding of this home. Instead of typical house numbers, consider using a wall planter with house numbers built in for a modern twist. Clay pots of cactus and a pair of aqua chairs add up to a quirky Southern California modern vibe.
Black door + barn light + cafe chair. If understated chic is what you’re after, this is the look for you. A glossy black door and matching black barn light are simple and timeless, while the folding cafe chair and hedgehog boot brush provide a fun twist.
Pink door + stenciled doormat + purple flowers. A pink door is certainly not for everyone (or every house!) but when it works, the pure joy can’t be denied. Keep things light with a painted porch floor, a pair of simple terracotta flower pots, and a fun doormat featuring a stenciled message.
Ready to start your front door makeover? The easiest way to begin is by replacing that ratty old doormat with something fresh and new! Here are six of my current favorites, including floral and lattice prints, a classic monogram, and even a cheeky lemon slice:
