Three Ways to Add Curb Appeal to Your Front Entryway

Three Ways to Add Curb Appeal to Your Front Entryway

Whether you’re selling your home or you’re planning on staying in it for the rest of your life, increasing the curb appeal of your home helps to grow its value as well as the surrounding homes in the neighborhood. While there are many different ways to increase the value of your home, nothing does it better than a well-designed and decorated front entryway. From gorgeous doors to perfect porches, your front entryway is the core element for achieving and sustaining the most value out of your home. Use these three ways to increase curb appeal to your front entryway and you’ll not only increase your home’s value, but you’ll also increase your homes beauty permanently.

French Doors

It’s one of the greatest ways to increase the overall look of any front entryway; installing French doors. An opulent addition to any home, double doors-or French style doors are the perfect addition to any home, regardless of its size, shape or style. Whether you own a huge mansion or a small bungalow, French doors can be installed in just about any existing door opening. French doors work excellent for keeping cool breezes flowing through the space as well. Open both doors at once and you’ll get a huge flow of fresh air that a conventional single panel door just can’t match.

Side Lights

You don’t need French style doors to make your front entryway pop. Side lights can accentuate any door and make it look like a million bucks-without costing as much. For those of you that don’t know what a side light is, it’s a fixed glass window that is on both sides of your door. Side lights can come in a wide variety of sizes, shapes and styles, so you can be sure that no matter what style of door you install in your front entryway, there is a side light that’s going to look good on both sides of it. Side lights are easy to install and are a cost effective way to get the most out of your front entryway space. You’ll not only increase curb appeal, but you’ll also increase the light in your entryway without spending a fortune on an electrician.

Low Paned Windows

One design feature that many expensive home entryways share in common with each other is a bank of low paned windows along the front porch. A tall window with a low pane allows people passing by the home to see the windows, without seeing into the home. This effect creates a look and feel that mimics the early antebellum homes of yesteryear. Be sure that you install window panes that are tempered glass. Without tempered glass, low paned windows can easily break when they are that close to the ground.
