It’s summer in Denver and you want your home looking its best. The focal point of your home is the front door as that is what most guests are introduced to upon arrival. There are many simple things you can do to liven up your entry points. Choices include accessorizing, painting or swapping out your doors altogether.
1) Accessorize: The easiest and cheapest way to dress up your doors is to add a decorative wreath of flowers. Change them out with each season to stay in sync with the time of year. Wreaths can be found at several stores around the area, most often at floral or crafting stores. You can even make your own and customize it to your specific taste. Your local hobby store should have everything you need to make the wreath that shows your unique style, and instruction on how to do this project can easily be found online. If flowers aren’t really your thing, change up your look with new doorknobs. Doorknobs come in a wide variety of styles and will easily add that POP you are looking for.
2) New Coat of Paint: If your doors are in good shape, you can simply change the color for an entirely different look. A new color can make a huge difference and quickly enhance the curb appeal of your house. Whether you choose a burst of color, such as red or blue, or something more neutral, it’s a great way to show your family’s individual style. Everyone remembers the house on the block with the big red door. Make that house yours.
3) New Doors: The last option is installing new doors altogether. Doors can be more affordable that you may think. Also, with antique being all the rage these days, a second-hand option could add that dated style you’re looking for. If modern is your preferred style, then choose a door that’s more abstract, whether that be in design or color. This will instantly add a chic feel to your home and give it a fresh new facelift. There are several local companies in Denver that can help with installation. If you are unable to find the door you want in stock, make an investment and have a door custom made to fit your style.
The following local businesses may be able to help you get started.
