Team bricks with blueMany red-brick homes have front doors that play safe in simple shades of black, grey or white. But this 1930s house shows how a shot of colour can really brighten up a brick exterior without fighting with all those red tones. The letter box in the wall has been painted the same shade, too, for a smart touch.

Break the rules Don’t be afraid to play with the architectural period of your home. A typical 1930s red brick house would most likely be finished off with a natural timber door or a pale eau de nil, dark red or green paint. Here, the glass panel with sunburst design is authentic, but the flash of bold turquoise adds a modern, personality-packed twist. Painting the letterbox in the same shade is a nice touch.Check out ways to improve your home’s kerb appealTELL US…What colour is your front door? Share your photos in the Comments below.

Keep it colourfulA fresh coat of brightly coloured paint is the fast track to fabulous when it comes to your front door. Chipped or marked paint creates an unkempt look, but choosing a bright colour will instantly update the front of your house, lending it the all-important wow factor. If you paint your front door, try to keep a small sample of the paint handy to dab over small blemishes when they occur.

Highlight original featuresSo there may be the odd gripe about certain 30s architectural details, but most only need a fresh approach to bring out the best in them. This door’s vibrant new paint job gives it a contemporary boost and also really highlights the beautiful, classic sunburst design in the leaded glass.Tour See what’s behind the door of this inspiring 1930s update

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.

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.Be inspired by these storage solutions
