Ideas For Highlighting Front Doors For Home Sales

 

The front door of a home is one of the first things that people notice as they drive by a house or when they pull up to the curb. While it is important to also address other features of the front when putting a home up for sale, taking the time to ensure front doors are highlighted and in top condition creates a very welcoming look.

Frame the Door with Greenery

With any style of wood door, one of the most complimentary elements to frame the door, or to draw attention to the front of the home, is a few beautiful plants. With the rich look of wood front doors, any type of hanging or potted greenery such as pothos, ivy, or even small topiary types of shrubs are a wonderful option.

Additionally, decorative floral plants are also a good option. The key is to not make the door area look crowded, but that little extra pop of color is amazing on either side of the natural wood.

A Quick Wash

For a top-quality wood front-entrance door, even if it is older, wiping it down with a damp cloth and then rubbing it with a microfiber cloth will bring out the natural shine and luster.

If a wood door is damaged or has faded over time and perhaps has not had much in the way of routine care, hiring a professional to come in and refinish the door and the door frame is a low-cost option to make the exterior of the home look well-cared for and stylish.

You can also refinish wood front doors yourself, but it can be a time-consuming task if you are busy preparing the rest of the home. Hiring a professional allows the job to be done quickly and effectively, just make sure to check the experience of the professional you hire.

The Area around the Door

Other easy-to-do quick fixes include checking the door handle and replacing or upgrading an old or outdated style. Adding a front porch light or updating the fixture is another way to bring out the beauty of the door, particularly if buyers are seeing the home in the early hours of the evening.

Avoid adding anything that looks cluttered or too busy around the door. You want the space to be

open and bright looking, even if you have a smaller entrance. Keeping an open look is always the best option when preparing your home for sale.
