Twice as Nice

Small window pane inserts in these wooden duplex doors bring a touch of elegance to a charming curb appeal design.

Barn Blue

This bright blue door from HGTV's Curb Appeal: The Block complements the casual front porch style, while still incorporating lots of color.

Contrasting Craftsman

This bright orange door's sturdy structural elements stay true to the home's Craftsman style. While the home's exterior is a sage green hue, designer John Gidding swings to the other side of the color wheel for a front door color with true contrast.

Pretty Porch

Enhance a front door space with a charming porch. For this mini-makeover, designer John Gidding used beautiful red flowers and a red planter to tie in the traditional red door for an inviting entryway.

Enchanting Entrance

Tucked away on a lush two-acre property, this home's charming wooden front door is partially draped in ivy as if it leads to an unexplored garden. Through the entrance, the home features a formal living room, a stately office and a newly remodeled master suite.

Asian Inspired

This multi-paned red door is reminiscent of Asian design. While an interior curtain provides privacy, the glass windows open up the porch area, while the bold red adds a welcoming pop of color.

Purple Passion

Curb Appeal: The Block designer John Gidding brought life to this front porch with a muted purple door and a frosted glass insert for creatively displaying the house number.

Bright Beauty

A cheery blue front door and large demilune front porch with Corinthian columns give this Greek revival-style home in Huntsville, Ala., timeless curb appeal. The front door color pops amongst a wall of large windows to create an obvious front entry space.

Artistic in Azure Blue

Curb Appeal designer John Gidding ties in a traditional front door with a Mediterranean curb appeal design using a blue hue similar to the tiles used in the front stair risers.

Cottage Color

A rounded, wood-paneled door creates a cozy cottage entry. A small window insert helps to break up the bright red color while still providing a bold curb appeal design.

Castle Cool

A beautiful spiral staircase winds up to a castle-like entryway. The simple front door's muted blue color allows it to stand out while still emphasizing the architectural splendor of the front entryway.

Teal Appeal

The stark contrast between the teal front door and neutral exterior color emphasizes the front entrance to the home and brightens the recessed porch area. Designer John Gidding creatively displays the house number on the front porch stair risers.

Dramatic Design

This striking solid mahogany door was chosen as an inviting statement for a custom built home in Illinois. Sidelights were designed with patina caming and Tiffany beveled glass. The jewel-like diamond cuts refract and reflect, producing a beautiful display of light.

Iron Details

The whimsical iron detail on the door mimics the iron gate along the porch to tie this space together. The orange color accentuates the overall Spanish home design.

Peaceful Palette

Using hues from the natural stone colors, designer John Gidding created a peaceful entryway.

Mulberry Masterpiece

The mulberry-colored front door stands out against the light blue palette of the home exterior. A large window insert in the front door allows light to pass through as it welcomes guests into a charming entryway.

Rustic Retreat

The architectural detail of the door complements this bungalow-style home. Two frosted glass sidelights frame the door to enhance the architectural features of the front door, while the solid wooden door contributes to the overall rustic feel of the home exterior.
