Easy Front Door Updates

Brought to you by Lowe's Creative Ideas

Put up a good front. Here are eight easy ways to make your house more welcoming.

Curb Appeal Ideas

Curb Appeal

Facade Fresheners

White trim (Satin Snow, #7004-17), dark shutters (Semi-Sweet, #4003-2C), and a brightly painted door (Jalapeño Jelly, #6005-6A, La Fonda Jalapeño, #6005-6C) perk up the neutral siding. A curved walkway washed with a concrete stain (Valspar River Rock) guides visitors to the door. Nearby, a vibrant seating area surrounded by lush landscaping beckons homeowners and visitors.

Pumpkins displayed on a front porch.

Warm Welcome

Put a charmingly distressed chair to work as a pedestal. Here, a pumpkin with a stenciled house number sits in the catbird seat while a companion pumpkin painted a lighter hue adds balance below. Bright mums and contrasting coralbells, sweet potato vine, and kale in containers complete the festive vignette.

Pumpkin Play

Small pumpkins won’t be overlooked when you paint them in a circus palette of colors. For greater impact, cluster the glorified gourds in and around a wire basket.

Kale as a landscaping plant.

Color Echoes

Make the landscape feel more cohesive by repeating colors. From a distance, lime sweet potato vines echo the color of the door and planter boxes. Close up, this kale’s burgundy highlights share the same color palette as nearby coralbells and caladium.

Planters flanking front porch steps.

Steps to Success

DIY planter boxes help balance the scale of the narrow steps and prominent stoop. Bright plants provide visual impact.

Flower beds around the front porch.

Foliage Rules

While mums and hydrangeas provide bursts of color, this entry also features easy-care foliage plants such as coralbells, ferns, caladium, and sweet potato vine. Extending the beds around the planters integrates the narrow steps with the landscape.

Copper-finish path light.

Right Light

These low-voltage path lights (#30323) contribute a classic touch to the landscape. The copper finish complements the deep red and bright green foliage of nearby coralbells during the day. At night, the row of lights placed along the front walkway directs visitors safely to the front steps.

Red adirondack chairs.

Seating for Two

This flagstone patio takes advantage of the shade of an existing tree. Adirondack chairs (model #AA21U) painted in Valspar exterior Terra Cotta Red (#2004-3A) provide a comfy perch for homeowners who want to catch up on their reading or pass the time of day with neighbors. When not in use, the colorful ensemble sends a welcoming message to visitors.

Door Decor

Make an impression with DIY door art fashioned from brightly painted dowels and boards. Enjoyed up close or from a distance, the colors tie in with furnishings and accessories as well when used indoors.
