Timeless Front Door Designs

What's one of the first things you notice when you look at a home? My eyes tend to start at the front door and the impression it makes can either build on the character of the home or detract from it.


When picking out paint color or designing from scratch, consider the scale of the door frame, how the design ties back to the architecture of the home, and if the color draws you in.
