No matter what you're working with, there are tips and tricks that will give this space a welcoming ambiance. Big or small, you can level up your entryway with subtle decorative touches or transform it with bigger DIY renovation projects. You choose.


1. Add color with paint

Painting your door is a popular home decorating strategy. That's because it has a big impact. Choose a radiant hue and add a bright pop of color to enliven the area. This also creates an interesting focal point indoors. If you're painting the outside as well as the interior, be sure to choose paint designed for outdoor use. For your finish, semigloss is a good choice. It has a nice sheen, and it's easy to clean.
