Your front entry is your home’s first impression to the world: whether it’s guests, your family or potential buyers if you are considering putting your home on the real estate market. No matter the circumstance, it’s important that you have a dazzling front entry to come home to. In this article, we’ll go over seven ways to have your front entry looking radiant.
A new paint job.

Whether it’s simply fixing paint that has been chipping away for years or adding a new bright pop of color to your entry way, adding some new paint is a simple way to bring new life to your front entry.


Another simple fix for your front entry is sprucing it up— literally!! Cut back any overgrown trees or shrubs and especially weeds and plant some new flowers to bring a new brightness to the front of your home.

Add some decor

Your home’s front entry is the prime location to spend a little extra cash on some beautiful attention-grabbing decor. You can choose new lighting, pottery, a new front door or new tiles to name a few. A little bit goes a long way here so don’t feel like you have to splurge on every item. Pick one or two nice touches and you will see your front entry transform.

Front entry door

Speaking of doors, another way to add a bit of beauty to your front entry is with a new door or windows. Full-length windows on both sides are great to bring additional light into your home, make your entry seem larger and add curb appeal.

Front entry additions

If you are looking for a more drastic change to your front entry, consider a porch remodel to give the front of your home a whole new look. If you aren’t ready to take on a project quite that size, consider adding a roof or awning over the front door. This will help keep rain and sun off your visitors and create a more welcoming front entry while also boosting the home’s appearance.

Lead guests to the front door

You want to have a clear path to the front door to lead visitors in the right direction. A clear and well-marked and even lit pathway from the street or driveway to your front door creates an extremely inviting atmosphere.

Add some lighting

What better way to add some glamour, curb appeal and make it easier for people to navigate to your front door than by adding some lighting? Outdoor lighting will work wonders to make your home appear more inviting. Since there are so many different types of lighting available, you can create a custom lighting look that captures your personality and finishing touches on your home.

Try one, a combination or all of these ideas to spruce up your front entry and watch your home get a major boost in curb appeal and enjoy an entry way to your home that is beautiful and super inviting. You will have friends and family stopping by and staying a while in no time to enjoy your new entry way!
