1. Choosing your door
Perhaps the best way to transform your front entrance, choosing a new door to replace your old one can be exactly what you need.

2. Be colourful
Dull colours can make your entrance seem boring and uninteresting, so instead be adventurous and paint your door with a bolder colour.
If you are instead looking for a more sophisticated look then choose muted colours or earthy tones; whether you decide to choose bold of softer tones, your front entrance will definitely be transformed.
Crucial for creating ambience, as well as for practicality, bringing light to your front entrance is a simple way of enhancing its overall appeal.
Decorative exterior lighting, which can dramatically change the look of your front door, has been increasingly growing in popularity as homeowners seek innovative ways to give their home a luxurious appeal.
If you are looking for added appeal, why not place embedded driveway lights along your path or pair several pendant lights on your porch? The best part is that all of these lights can be solar powered so no need to worry about any additional costs.
4. Sit and relax
There’s nothing more inviting than a place to sit and chat or read. If you have enough space by your entrance then why not add a bench with decorative pillows or a charming front porch swing.
If you think that these furnishings might take up more space than you are willing to give, then perhaps opting for colourful garden stools may be the better option; either way, it may be worth considering.
5. Add plants
Perhaps the easiest way to create a fabulous front door space is to add greenery and whether it’s large or small, any plant will be worth your investment. Purchase plants that last year-round and watch as your entrance is constantly welcoming.
If you would like to be creative then why not dress up your front door with seasonal touches when necessary, such as holly during Christmas and daffodils throughout Spring. You can also be creative with the type of planters you choose, as this can also lighten the space significantly.
6. Pick a number
House numbers are a great way of adding a playful touch of style to your entrance. Be creative and standout by choosing larger numbers, or wordings rather than the traditional choice.
Consider spelling out your house number for a more sophisticated look or opt for a quirky set of enlarged numbers to catch attention; whatever you decide to do will transform your entrance and give it a luxurious feel.
7. Finishing touches
Think simple accessories — a mat and doorbell knocker. Both can be as personal as you would like it to be. With simple decorative touches, a boring space can be brought to life.
A front door mat will add uniqueness to your home exterior whilst an ornate doorbell or knocker can add a homely touch; whichever you choose, you will be spoilt for choice as a variety of patterns, colours, and styles make each one unique.
