The holidays is a great time to freshen up your paint, especially in the entryway to you house. Make it look fresh and inviting for your holiday guests. Don’t forget to freshen and bring back to life your front door with some paint.
We decorate and make the insides of our houses beautiful for the holidays and often forget one of the most important areas, the front and the entryway. The front door is a very important for the holiday celebrations. Everyone that comes into your house will do it through your front door, make it a beautiful.
Nothing is worse than a front entry that is dirty with huge cobwebs (after all Halloween is over) and paint that is chipped and faded. You can put up all the lights in the world but if your entry door looks old and tired it will make everything else look that way.
It is a great time to put a good coat of paint on the door. If you do nothing more than just paint it, it will make the entire entryway look fresh. Do not forget the garage doors they are typically huge and can make the front of the house look fresh when you take the time to give them a coat of paint.
It would be a good time to add an accent color especially to the front door. Make it a bright color, what about a red door, or teal? The front door can use a bright color as an accent to draw attention to the entry of your home. It is too easy to get caught up in using the same colors over and over. Branch out with color you will be glad you did.
Don’t forget your mail box, the holidays is a great time to spruce up the one thing that is always front and center of your home. How often do you think about the mailbox, not often? Usually only if someone has damaged it. Give your mailbox a coat of paint, it can simply be the traditional black box (some neighborhoods like mine will only let you do that) but a fresh coat of paint will make it look like new. Or get more creative and think outside the box and paint something that will standout and make a statement.
These little touches will not take much time or money but they will give you a huge boost in the area that will welcome your friends and families for the holiday. Happy Holidays…
