How to Add Instant Curb Appeal: Stunning Front Door Ideas

Painting your front door is one of the most effective ways to instantly add curb appeal to your home. But with so many colors out there, how do you choose? Here's a few tips, with tons more inspiration and ideas found here:
Consider your home's style and time period, but don't let it limit you! This home, while older, looks amazing with a lime green door. What a way to update it!
Red is supposed to bring luck, so why not put those powers to your front door? This red door adds pop to an otherwise gray home.
Is there a more perfect color than turquoise? What a happy way to come home.
Also consider what your door will look like from the inside. Here, the black door acts as a frame to a lovely yard. This understated traditional design is calming and sophisticated.
Don't forget to dress up your door, too. Like jewelry, door knockers and kickplates add that something special.
BAM! Tangerine. Love it!
