Give Your Front Door a Facelift with Benjamin Moore Paint

Besides the spring, fall is the second busiest season for home renovations in New England. However, the projects that homeowners tend to tackle during the fall season are not as extensive as those in the earlier months. With a timeline closing in on snowy days, you need to be sure you can complete any exterior undergoing before winter arrives. Thus, it’s the perfect time to visit your local Benjamin Moore paint dealer and get those quicker projects off the honey-do list. One of the easiest, and most common ways, to spruce up the exterior of your home, is to change up the appearance of your front door.

 

Preparations

Now that you’ve journeyed down to Ace Hardware New Hampshire, it’s time to let the fun begin! However, there are a few crucial steps you need to take before applying that fresh new color of paint to your front door.

First, you want to be sure to sand down your door. This step will help to remove any older paint that may be faded or chipping away. You’ll be left with a smooth, clean palette that will absorb and hold your new color with perfection. However, it’s important to note that it’s not necessary to sand your door down to bare wood.

Secondly, you want to make sure you have a secure wedge or another element to hold your door in place once you begin painting. This is important in keeping your brush strokes where they belong! Before you start, be sure to tape off any glass areas as well.

Inviting Colors

One of the best parts of painting your front door is the interest you can create with a touch of color. One of the first considerations, however, is taking into account the color of your siding and the overall tone of your home. Whether or not you live in a new, modern style colonial or an old, rustic farmhouse will matter when selecting an appropriate color. From bright baby blues to deep hunter greens, setting the tone with color is sure to add the curb appeal you’re looking to achieve.
