1.   Make a Colorful Splash

The hottest design trend for front doors across the board is to paint or add a door with a standout color. Bright and bold colors like orange, yellow, and red can add energy and warmth, cheerily greeting guests and inviting them in. Or consider adding a rich jewel tone like cerulean, plum, or peacock. Shades of pink or delicate pastels can add fun and charm. Contrasting doors look especially charming when paired with white trim against deep charcoal siding or another neutral siding shade.

2.   Add Decadent Hardware

Adding distinctive hardware to your door might seem like a small touch, but it can be anything but subtle. Make a statement by choosing a more ornate door hardware design and adding a customized door knocker. For a bolder look, choose from a warm metal hue like gold or brass. Chrome can also pack a decorative punch.

3.   Expand Your Perspective

Sidelites on either side of an entry door or doors adds instant elegance on both sides of the doorway. From the outside, it makes the doorway seem wider and more formal. This looks especially stunning when combined with a transom window over the door frame. Indoors, you’ll enjoy added soft light streaming into your entryway. Consider customizing your windows with etching or stained glass looks for added privacy and artfulness.

4.   Embrace Grandeur

When you think of a grand entrance to a beautiful home, is there anything more awe-inspiring than a stunning set of double doors? Installing a set of French doors or double entry doors looks fantastic, especially when paired with sidelites and transom windows.
