  1. Repaint Your Existing Door

One way to get a new look for your door without having to buy a new one is by giving a fresh new coat to it. If black or red are common schemes people mostly pick, you are welcomed to strive something different, like purple, yellow, or green.

  • Lighting Fixtures

Make sure your entrance lighting provides adequate ambient light around your door. You can achieve this with flush or semi-flush outdoor fixtures, pendants, chandeliers, or wall lamps.
