Add Some Plant Life

Give your front door some life and energy with potted plants that can last all year around. Check out your local garden center and ask for potted plants that are low-maintenance such as succulents. 

Use Contrasting Colors

Create contrast and add a punch of color to your front door by painting the border around your door a lighter color. Then for your actual door, paint it a rich, dark hue like this midnight black. Make sure to use paint that has a glossy finish – it looks more classy.
