Home & Garden Blog

To be certain that your household is not only the best looking on the block, but staying valuable, you will need to make the improvements that work in your favor. Focusing on your doorway means a lot in this regard because it is often the first impression that people have of the property. If you need your doorway to speak for you and provide you with great value, read on and use these strategies. 

Tip #1: Choose the right front door for your house

The front door is easily the most important door in your house. Not only does it create an elegant welcome, it's also crucial to your home security and the well-being of your household. Put some thought into the type of door that you decide to buy for your house. Installing a new door can cost you somewhere between approximately $500 and $1,400. You'll need to be sure that your door is built solidly and that you're getting it treated so that the paint color lasts. Get creative with the accents that you put into it so that you're decorating your home in a way that creates an impression. Consider installing clavos that are colorful and well designed, since they act as an accent to your door. 

Tip #2: Take great care of your porch

When you really want great curb appeal and a warm welcome, take the time to keep up with your front porch. You'll want to get rid of hazards like cracks and craters since they ruin property value and even create legal liability issues. It might cost you somewhere between $25 per hour and $60 per hour to get repairs for your front porch. Make sure to get it sealed to prevent further cracks, and buy an insurance plan for the porch. 

Tip #3: Make the front of your home well-lit

Finally, create plenty of illumination at the front of your home by installing the right light fixtures. You can install motion detector lights and a variety of elegant lighting fixtures in order for your home to be better for it. This way, your home will be both safe and packed with curb appeal. It might cost you in the range of approximately $140 and $700 to install lighting fixtures in your home. 

Make the most of these three suggestions so that you are able to get creative with the doorway to your home.
