Your home's curb appeal centres on its front door. Add character to your front door with paint or a bespoke wood door. Remove debris surrounding the knob and polish door hardware.

Paint the Front Door

Symmetry is the easiest plan and looks best. Curb appeal for inviting entryways includes symmetrical light fixtures and front-door decorations. Two sidelights surround this entrance.

Dress Up Your Porch with Seating

Install Outdoor Lighting
