Ty and Christie looked at some other doors and talked about the messages they send. Bright Colors like Yellow can really brighten up the appearance of your entryway.

You can even detail your door with custom painting to reflect your individual personality. Having a distinctive door is also a good way to give visitors a visual indicator in directions. For example, “Park in front of the house with the Green Door.”

You should replace your Front Door if it’s damaged or worn. Ty gave Christie some tips on decorating and protecting her door.

Your Door Vs Your Face

Ty said you should treat your door just like you’d treat your face. Protect it from the sun, give it a few nice touches, and accessorize.

He said you should use an exterior UV sealer on the paint of a wood door, to protect your door from sun damage. You can also accent your door by painting the trim or molding with a contrast color.
