The front door is the first impression
guests get before they enter your home. It is where
you say hello and goodbye to your friends as each day
begins and ends. As one of the most utilized parts of your
home, you want to ensure its curb appeal fits
Of course the first step in taking your entry door decorating
to new heights in 2016 is by considering whether you want to update your current front door with one of
the numerous options offered by Pella Windows and Doors. A well-made entry door from

Before you choose how you’d like to
decorate a new entry door for 2016, you should explore
what fits your lifestyle best. There are creative options
available beyond your imagination to help convey your vision.
Doors – From wreaths to front door knockers to house numbers, there are a lot of ways to add individuality to your entry door.
Front door decorations provide homeowners the ability to be
flexible. If your entryway starts to become boring, you can easily swith it up and maintain a
completely different style by the application of minor
changes. A way to add an individual touch is to
incorporate your personality into a door knocker. The recent trend of adding one-of-a-kind
door knockers to increase your curb personality also steps in as a
conversation starter for first time guests who walk 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 match
your personality and temperament. Entry doors
can be two-toned as well. This means you can
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 little
change goes a long way. Handles for your front door have become customized statement pieces for 2016.
Design – To keep your front door area clean, you need to
have a doormat through every season. But this goes beyond cleanliness and will also
set the tone for your den. A doormat can be simple,
food-shaped and the list goes on endlessly. If you
can’t find an entry doormat design that fits your vision,
there are many ways to do so by doing it
No matter where you go with your design for
2016, remember that you need a top-notch
entry door before you start your project. For any questions
