There’s a chill in the air, the Bears are on every week, and there is Halloween candy in every grocery store. These telltale signs can only mean one thing: fall is here! Thanks to the autumn season, we can all still enjoy time outdoors before winter rears its head. This additional time outside means it is a great time of year to give your front yard a bit of a facelift by updating your house’s door.
Looking for inspiration? We’ve got you covered. Here are a few ideas to update your door and front porch for the season, for every budget.
A Splash of Color
If your door is in good shape, meaning you don’t notice a draft in your front foyer and there are no cracks in the door or frame, you can update the entire look of your house with a bucket of paint. If you have never considered painting your front door, you are missing out on a fun way to express your personal style and make a big difference with minimal investment.
We love the clean look of a door freshly painted white or neutral gray. A dark door, either navy, dark gray, or black, can look classic and timeless as well. Or, consider getting a bit colorful and choosing a bright yellow, red, or teal.
The Perfect Wreath
October is the perfect month to break out your favorite fall wreath, but be sure you aren’t damaging your door when you attach it. Choose a wreath that complements the overall colors and style of your home’s exterior and beware of wreaths that are too big. Also, secure your wreath well to avoid any problems on a blustery day.
A New Door
Your front door is made to last a few decades, and if you haven’t replaced your door in ten to fifteen years, it is time to make that investment. When you work with the team at Rusco, we will guide you through the process, from design choice to installation to follow up, making sure you are satisfied at every turn. We can give you updated information about the most durable and expertly crafted doors on the market, as well as talk more about energy efficiency and material choice. Even better, your new door will be installed before the harsh winter arrives.
Here’s to a new season and a new look!
