Blogger Front Door Makeovers

Update Your Front Door With These Stylish Door Knockers

If you've been neglecting your front door, fear not! These impressive before-and-after front door makeovers prove how easy it can be to create a front door that makes a strong first impression.

Red front doors may be classic, but Jo-Anna of A Pretty Life in the Suburbs found it difficult to match the primary color to her outdoor decor. She also found it challenging to create a bright and inviting entrance because her front porch was completely shaded from the sun — and the dark crimson color didn't help.

Jo-Anna created her own sunshine by painting the front door a cheerful shade of yellow, a natural complement to her decorative shade-loving plants. She then prettied up the porch floor and stairs with a couple coats of dark brown paint, allowing the light-colored door to pop even more. A woven doormat with aqua-and-green accents completed the porch's sunny new look.

Take the guesswork finding the perfect front door color with these easy-to-please, exterior-flattering hues.

When Alex of AVE Styles moved into her ranch, the exterior was midcentury — but there was nothing modern about it. The home, previously owned by the bank, featured an uninviting security gate and an interior door posing as a front door. Even the pale-green-and-red-brick color palette was cringeworthy, according to Alex.

After painting the entire exterior a sophisticated gray, Alex added a pop of color with a yellow DIY front door. Rather than purchasing an expensive door, she used a kit to install door lites to a new solid wood door, giving the ranch midcentury appeal while allowing natural light to fill foyer. Along with the square glass inserts, sleek metal hardware added to the door's modern vibe.

Kate and Adam of The “Florkins” had been planning to give their first home a facelift since they moved in over a year ago. Kate knew she wanted a bold blue front door, but before they could paint, the couple needed to repair the rust damage and holes that were revealed after removing the brass kick plate on their door.

After fixing the damage, Kate painted the patched-up door a bright navy blue and replaced the old brass hardware with a set in bronze finish. She and Adam decided to keep the original door knocker because it had character but spray-painted it to match the new metallic hardware. The cherry on top was a decal next to the door handle to welcome visitors with a friendly hello.

Kim of Tidbits and Twine was looking for a way to make the standard-issue front door of her tract home stand out from the rest of her neighbors' entryways. Besides its 12-panel design, the door lacked any decorative details — nothing about her front door reflected Kim's taste or personality.

To differentiate her door the others on her street, Kim first painted it black, a dramatic yet neutral choice. She originally planned to hang a door knocker in oil-rubbed bronze to match the hardware, but she fell in love with a vintage brass lion-head door knocker on Etsy. Her house number, a gold decal, tied together the different metal accents on her door.

As Jill of Baby Rabies learned firsthand, even the coolest handmade yarn wreath can't transform a boring front door into a statement-making entry.

In builder-grade white, the door virtually disappeared into the concrete walkway, and the kick plate and door frame had both seen better days.

Throw in some hardware that clashed with the door's brass bottom, and you had a recipe for blah.

Jill took her front door in the opposite direction, choosing dramatic black over drab white. Rather than repair the holes caused by the brass kick plate, she simply replaced it with a modern metallic version that matched the updated hardware. Jill also swapped her handmade wreath for a contemporary powder-coated one, using a magnetic wreath holder to secure it to her metal door.

Updating A Door Knocker And A Doorbell

Update Your Front Door With These Stylish Door Knockers

How about a post about hunting for knockers? Nope, not those knockers. This is just the follow-up we promised yesterday about updating our door knocker and doorbell.

Here was the situation before: a nice but quite aged door knocker whose main flaw was that the previous owner’s last name that was etched into it (it’s a little hard to see because I slightly blurred it for their sake).

We took the engraving as a sign that it needed to be replaced, rather than salvaged, so we figured we’d use the opportunity to buy something unique and statement piece-y. First we hit up our favorite local hardware store (Pleasant’s Hardware) which had some animal kingdom inspired options that Clara couldn’t keep her hands off of. But with those prices ($188?!) Sherry and I had no trouble.

Our next stop was a local architectural salvage place that’s always full of interesting pieces (Caravati’s). They had some cool options – we especially loved the chunky ring in the bottom right – but the prices were still about one digit longer than we were hoping to spend (that one was $185). I guess I never really thought about how much a door knocker could cost.

Next we scoped out Lowe’s and Home Depot, which both had options these. The price was certainly right, but it was the same basic urn style knocker that we already had except smaller and not as “original” looking. Plus the size difference would mean we’d have to make new holes in the door to achieve basically the same look.

When the big box stores failed to excite us, we hunted online a little and found some interesting and slightly more affordable options at both Restoration Hardware and Anthropologie.

Never did I think I’d put those two stores in the same sentence as “slightly more affordable” but compared to our first options their $50-ish price tags felt a deal.

But these were both about half the size (or less) than our original knocker, so we worried they’d look a little lost/piddly on our two-story facade.

Feeling a bit KO’d by knocker hunting, we started to look at our existing knocker with fresh eyes. A gentleman at Caravati’s had mentioned we could take it someplace to get the engraving buffed out… but maybe it was worth attempting an at-home buffing first? After all, my Dremel had some sanding pads that seemed built for a job that.

Figuring we didn’t have much to lose, we removed the knocker and I attached the lowest grit sand paper to my Dremel (the one with the roughest texture) in hopes that it would scratch out the old owner’s name.

Scratching achieved. I stopped at first, worrying I was permanently damaging it, but Sherry assured me that a new coat of paint should cover it up. So I charged on, er, buffed on.

After a few passes with the low-grit sandpaper, I went back over with the high-grit stuff (which has a much smoother texture) to minimize the scratches by buffing them. It still had slight traces of my buffing pattern, but it certainly got smoother. It even revealed a gold finish that’s probably close to what the knocker looked decades ago.

If gold was what we were going for – and if I had the patience to buff every nook and cranny – it could’ve been a very exciting discovery.

Instead, I was just happy to get that engraving off so Sherry could get down to oil-rubbed-bronzing it to match the door hardware as well as some other dark-toned items on the porch (more on those in a second).

She used her favorite self-priming spray paint by Rustoleum (Universal All-Surface Spray) and just applied three thin coats (more of a mist than a coat, so they built up gradually without dripping).

Once dried, the de-personalized knocker looked right at home on our new blue door. You can see how its fresh shine is reflecting the front yard – there’s even a reflection of Sherry standing in front of it taking the picture, but the area that I sanded down is exactly the same color and texture as the rest of it. Thank goodness for small use-what-you-got victories.

Here’s a detail shot of the door open to try to capture the smooth finish for you with less of the porch reflection thing going on.

While we were at it, we decided to clean up the doorbell too. We d the shape, so it just needed a coat of the same oil-rubbed bronze finish as the knocker to cover the sloppy looking over-painted areas that had obscured its interesting shape.

Sherry’s trick for keeping the button from getting painted was to press a piece of sticky-tack over it (you know, that poster putty that you use in college to hang Weezer posters?).

It was much easier than trying to cut painter’s tape in a perfectly sized circle.

And as you can see above, it worked out pretty nicely – she just yanked it off after the paint dried and the button was clean and unpainted underneath.

So that’s how one can of $7 spray paint allowed us to keep and update two etched and painted over items on our porch.

Hopefully it’ll come in handy for anyone else out there with a not-quite-there-yet door knocker or doorbell.

We really how the new darker finish helps them stand out more while tying in with the door handle, the black planters on the porch, and even the black rule around the doormat.

Now if we can just do something about that bug-infested crooked light…

Psst- Clara’s at it again, being all funny and cute over here.

Door Knockers | Brass Door Knocker

Update Your Front Door With These Stylish Door Knockers

We’ve all heard the cliché: first impressions stick with us. If this is true for humans, why wouldn’t the same be true for you home? The way your house looks says something about you as a homeowner, and as a person. And since we usually enter from a garage or porch, the front entrance is typically reserved for guests.

Therefore it is essential your doorway creates a welcoming invitation, while still providing security. Since most of us neglect this part of the house, every once in awhile it’s important to inspect and enhance your entryway.

And while replacing an actual door can be expensive, there are some simple and very quick renovations that can make a threshold more elegant and safe.

Door Knocker

The easiest way to make an entrance more stylish is to install a door knocker. Though these items may seem dated, a door knocker can actually add an old-world charm to your doorway.

Not only can they be functional, they also come in many shapes and sizes to match your exterior decor.

Though you certainly want to choose one that fits your personal tastes, the most common style is a brass door knocker that conveys a classic look yet can also be engraved with your family name.

Handles

If you’ve never replaced your handle-and-lock system, it may be time to give them a quick inspection. To keep your home safe, it’s important to keep your security system up to date, and annual inspections are a great way to make your home at least feel safer.

It’s best to have both a handle lock and a deadbolt to ensure against intruders, and it may be a good idea to have an expert locksmith come out and give it a once over.

Plus, replacing your old handle with a new model can also add a small flourish to your entryway, especially if you invest in one that creates a uniform look to your home: it’s a good idea to match your handle with the other details of your door, such as choosing the same color as your deadbolt or the same material as your brass door knocker.

Holiday Apparel

Nothing is more welcoming than some holiday cheer. There is a limitless supply of decorations for a doorway, including metal hangers, garland strands, or wreaths that can hang around your door knocker. Either way, some seasonal joy can instantly bring friendly warmth to any home.

Permanent Fixtures

Why leave your porch completely bare? What’s inviting about a slab of concrete and a locked door? Instead, add some wrought iron furniture for lounging, a newspaper box for the paperboy, or a welcome mat for your guests.

Make sure none of your porch lights are burnt out for both aesthetic and security reasons. In fact, the more you have your porch lights blazing, the more engaging your entryway appears.

Any kind of permanent decoration makes your house look lived in, therefore making it look homier.

Doorbells

You don’t ever use your own doorbell, but they can often go on the fritz. So it’s important to inspect it once a year to see if it is in working order so your guests don’t have to depend on your door knocker.

Also, there’s nothing less appealing than a white piece of plastic sitting on your door frame. Maybe purchase a stylish backing for your bell to enhance its look or buy one that glows in the dark for easier detection.

Are all these ideas essential to your home? Of course not. But any kind of augmentation helps your home’s curb appeal, and any type of routine inspection makes your home more secure. But whichever method you choose, always make sure it fits your own personal style so that your entryway isn’t only welcoming to your guests but to yourself as well.

Door Knockers to Refresh Your Home’s Entry

Update Your Front Door With These Stylish Door Knockers

A knock on the door starts the interaction, but an attention-grabbing door knocker can get a conversation started. Give guests a taste of your home’s personality by adding a nontraditional door knocker, such as an animal, a geometric shape or an eclectic treasure.

The Animal Kingdom Awaits

Wildlife, big and small, beckons visitors to give the door knocker a try. The types of animals that can grace a front door range from lion and lobster to bird and butterfly.

Regal lion. The king of the jungle lends guests a hand — or mouth — at this front door. The homeowners purchased the golden lion on a trip abroad. Back in Nashville, Tennessee, designers Blair Parkes and Susan Lamb of Parkes & Lamb Interiors juxtaposed pastel paint with the antique hardware to give the home’s exterior the “pop” the client wanted.

“The door is a great welcome with a fun and inviting color paired with such a unique accent as the door knocker, which really allows for a welcoming entrance and wanting others to see more of the house,” the design firm says.

If an animal pairs well with the theme of your home, consider adding it to the front door so guests feel the vibe from their first knock.

Coastal lobster. A crustacean glimmers in the sun on the front door of this New England home. A creative door knocker with a shine is sure to catch the attention of visitors.

Welcoming whale. Consider the animal’s natural habitat and use colors that re-create that scene.

Feathered friend. This knocker puts an animal’s natural talents to use. A few pecks on the door and you’ll know that visitors await.

Shapes That Make an Impact

A simple shape adds character and style to any front door. Try a circle, square or even a handle to see which shape works for you.

Big rings. A circular door knocker gives guests a handle that’s easy to grab. Plus, it fits in many different styles, such as transitional and rustic.

Habitat Studio, original photo on Houzz

Modern mix. You can also mix and match shapes. For this knocker, the designer opted to keep the more traditional ring but with a polished bar on top. It adds a modern touch to the deep brown door.

Loftus Design, LLC, original photo on Houzz

Handy handle. This knocker operates a handle. Grab on and give it a few thunks to let everyone know you’ve arrived.

Bridget Gasque, owner of Loftus Design, recommends a door knocker instead of a doorbell because it adds an interesting, decorative element to the door. She considers the different finishes of the hardware and placement when incorporating a knocker into the design. She recommends keeping the knocker at eye level so that people can easily see and reach it.

Eclectic Treasures With a Purpose

Sometimes a story lies within each knock. People inherit knockers. They find them at flea markets and antiques stores. They even pick up souvenirs while traveling that make great door knockers.

Antique oak leaf. A sturdy replica of nature finds its home on the front door of this historical loft. It’s not the only vintage piece in the equation: It’s hanging from a repurposed schoolhouse door.

Carte Blanche Studio, original photo on Houzz

Bold find. International travel inspired this Chi Lin door knocker on a Palm Springs, California, home.

“My wife and I love to travel and our architecture is often inspired by the places we visit,” says Chris Stage, principal at Carte Blanche Studio.

He and the client wanted to make a bold statement with the front door, and they found what they were looking for in Hong Kong. While working on the project, Stage and his wife took a trip to Macau and crossed paths with the clients in Hong Kong. Many of the temples they saw had bright red doors with huge brass knockers.

“We knew they would be perfect for the entrance to the Palm Springs house,” Stage says.

They walked a few blocks and found similar knockers in an antiques market and brought them back to California.
