  1. Mix styles and colors - Don't be afraid to mix up styles for a fresh look. Just because your home's architecture or color palette is more traditional doesn't mean you can't work in a few modern accessories and fixtures. 

  2. Give your door a color update - Painting your front door a stand-out color is the cheapest and easiest way to elevate your home's curb appeal. This rich green hue looks great with a classic gray brick exterior and feels contemporary without being too bold.

  3. Hang a textured and colorful wreath - Play up texture and trending colors with your door decor. This can also be a super fun and inexpensive DIY project. 

  4. Great guests with a fall friendly door mat - Guests will appreciate a clever greeting on a fall-friendly doormat. This can also be a fun inexpensive DIY  with craft paint and stencils.

  5. Add layers of greenery for a high-end look - Add color and texture to your porch with planters. Mix various greenery together in layers and stagger planter heights for a high-end look.

  6. Try a fall palette - For planters, doormats and even your door, consider a color palette more in step with fall: deeper hues with pops of plums and reds.

  7. Consider creative exterior lighting - For planters, doormats and even your door, consider a color palette more in step with fall: deeper hues with pops of plums and reds.

  8. Swap out those house numbers - Make sure guests can find you with updated address numbers. Whether you mount them on the house, the door or steps, crisp house numbers are an easy spruce-up.

  9. Try on new hardware - It's jewelry for your door. A good-looking, secure lock set makes a great first impression, and it's an easy DIY project to boot.

  10. Why not add a mirror - Check your look on the way out the door with an outdoor mirror. Go with weather-friendly finishes if your porch is exposed to the elements.

  11. Paint shutter for a easy update - Simply pressure washing and painting shutters can instantly re-invigorate your exterior.

  12. Freshen up railings - Keep your railings in good shape by repainting them every few years. Skip classic white and try a more modern griege; it's more forgiving.
