When the warm weather hits we find ourselves spending more time entertaining and relaxing outdoors. One easy way to refresh your home’s exterior is to paint your front door. Don’t be afraid of paint. Painting is one of the easiest and most cost effective means to dramatically change the look of your home.

If you are not sure about your color, it is best to hire a professional color specialist or interior designer. Also, think classic and neutral. Classic color adds elegance and also can increase the value of your home for potential future buyers.

For added impact include decorative garden accents at the entrance of your home. Planters, lanterns, vases or bowls filled with flowers or plants look inviting and can improve the overall texture and appearance of your doorway and can be changed seasonally to keep a fresh look.
