Front Door Makeover: 12 Doorstep Upgrades That Will Boost Your Curbside Appeal

Clear out the cobwebs, it's time to tackle this space.

By Patricia Cunningham

You might have spent years outfitting your living room to design perfection, buffed up your kitchen to 'gram-worthy levels and even whipped your cluttered entryway into neatly organized shape. But take a minute to look around and you might realize there is one area of your home that could use a little more love — the front door. It's okay, it's the one space that gets away from even the most obsessed design obsessives since it is so easy to forget about once you’ve crossed the threshold and dropped your keys. But it is also the first thing people see, and if it’s looking neglected and overgrown with cobwebs, you could leave guests with the mistaken assumption that you’re the type that celebrates Halloween year round

There’s no easier way to boost your curbside appeal than with a doorstep makeover. It’s a great place to take bold design risks, add some character and have fun (think statement mailbox, adorable hedgehog doormat and colorful planter, all below.) We’ve rounded up a selection of doorstep décor that will let passers by know that if your house looks this cute on the outside, it’s definitely got to be smashing on the inside. Who knows, you might even start a trend on the block. 

Fiber Concrete Barrel Pots

Inspired by vintage dolly tubs, these planters will add charm to any front stoop. Made of lightweight fiber concrete, they come in an array of colors and are frost resistant.

Cast Iron Welcome Sign

Let everybody know you are not as antisocial as you come across on those mornings they might have seen you before you’ve had your coffee.  

Heslin Steel Bench

This sunny modern farmhouse style bench will give your front porch a pop of cheer. Your curbside bonifides just jumped up a notch.

Not your run of the mill boot scraper, this hedgehog-shaped doormat is made of durable coir and is cute as a button.

Steel Post Box

Rev up your doorstep with this fire engine red mailbox—your postman will appreciate it.

These boxwood topiaries will give your front door an elegant patch of greenery. Best of all you’ll never have to prune or water it (because it's not real).
