begins and ends. As one of the most used parts of your

Before you settle on how you’d like to

what fits your lifestyle best. There are creative options
available beyond your imagination to help reflect your vision.
Doors – From wreaths to front door knockers to house numbers, there are multiple ways to add individuality to your entry door.
Front door decorations give homeowners the ability to be
flexible. If your entryway starts to become boring, you can easily alter it and maintain a
completely different style by the application of minor
changes. A way to add a personal touch is to
incorporate your personality into a door knocker. The recent trend of adding odd
door knockers to up your curb personality also steps in as a
conversation starter for first time guests who enter through your entry door.
Catcher – The front door color trends for 2016 are
earthy with a bold pop of color. There are even colors to meet
your individuality and temperament. Entry doors
can be two-toned also. This permits you to
have a statement color on your front step and a subtle hue on the interior, or the other way around.
Hardware – Door handles are an example of how a small
change goes a long way. Handles for your front door have transformed
in to customized statement pieces for 2016.
Design – To keep your front door area clean, you should
have a doormat through every season. But this goes beyond cleanliness and will also
set the stage for your den. A doormat can be simple,
food-shaped and the list goes on for a mile. If you
can’t find an entry doormat design that fits your vision,
there are a number of ways to do so by doing it
No matter where you go with your design for
2016, remember that you need a top of the line
entry door before you kickoff your project. For any questions
