    Pep up the doorThe colour of your front door, as well as the furniture on and around it, can have a huge impact on your home’s exterior. “A front door that’s well painted will invite people in,” Titilola says. “Dark blues, greens and greys are popular, but a white or natural wood door that has a brass knob and knocker can also look good.“It’s definitely worth spending the money to redecorate a tired door and change the furniture where necessary,” she adds. “You could also do something different with the house number, such as buying an oversized brass one or a custom-made acrylic or slate design with the house name, number and street on it. This will make the house look and feel different from all the others.”Need some extra styling to help sell your home? Search for home stagers in your neighbourhood.

    Make way for winter bootsAutumn means wet weather gear, so you’ll need to clear enough space in your hallway or coat cupboard to make way for all the wellingtons, raincoats and thick winter gear that are likely to pile up when the days get crisper.Pack away any lightweight summer shoes and coats to clear as much cupboard/hall space as possible, and make sure you have a good sturdy doormat and boot scraper ready to give muddy boots a quick clean outside the front door.

    Pep up your entranceCheer yourself up on colder days by creating a warm welcome to your home. Autumn is the perfect time to spruce up your front door, as it’s generally still mild enough to paint outside. Choose a cheerful colour that will make everyone smile. Make sure you give the wood a good sand beforehand and buy an exterior paint that will protect it in all weathers. It’s also a good idea to take the hardware off beforehand, so now might be a good time to invest in a brand-new doorknob or letterbox. The rest of the front garden might need a tidy up, too. After all, you’ll probably see more of the front than the back garden during the winter. Plant some evergreen shrubs that will provide an attractive structure throughout the cold months, and add a couple of winter-flowering plants to boost interest.

    Repaint your doorDon’t forget your door when making over your front garden – it’s a big part of the first impression. Try being a bit bold: vibrant turquoise might not seem an obvious choice for a 1930s brick terrace, but here it adds a modern feel. If your front door is faded, scuffed or peeling, now could be the time to address it.

    Spruce up the front doorAdd a fresh note to your entrance with a plant or spring wreath. Greenery lifts the spirits and setting a beautiful scene even before the door has been opened gives you lots of host and/or hostess high fives. Spring wreaths are a fun make for the whole family. You can get hold of wicker or polystyrene bases at craft shops, which you can then decorate with all manner of fresh flowers and cuttings, ribbons, yarn or fluffy pompoms. Just have lots of pins to hand.If you’re not feeling too crafty or have trouble keeping plants alive, give the front door a lick of paint. Try a different, brighter shade to welcome in the warmer months as well as your Easter guests.
