Spruce up Boundaries

As well as adding plants and plant pots to the doorway, take a long look at your boundaries. Do you have overgrown bushes or shrubs? Is your fencing looking a little worn? If the answer is yes, then paint or replace to ensure your boundaries are looking their best.

Colour

Treat your front door a makeover and immediately transform the space. If you’re trying to sell, keep the colour neutral, otherwise, inject your personality into your choices.

Lighting

Add a front door light at the very least, to ensure visitors to your house can find their way to the front door easily in the dark. There are lots of styles so find one to suit you, and install a sensor to pick up movement too.

Do Up Your Porch

If you’re lucky enough to own a porch area, make sure it’s neat and tidy and decluttered. If you use it to store shoes and coats, add some useful storage to keep everything under control.

Door Numbers

Make sure you have clear door numbers so your visitors and postman can easily find you. There are numerous stylish ways you can do this from painted numbers, glassed etched and acrylics. Choose one that suits the style of your home and ensures it’s easy to read from the road.

Doormat

It’s the last piece, but often one that’s missed. Doormats can become downtrodden, miserable and sometimes soggy, so replacing them regularly is an easy way to refresh the entrance to your home and a perfect way to welcome guests.
