‘The biggest mistake people make is not making their front door stand out because it’s a missed opportunity,’ begins John. ‘[Your front door] does more than just make a facade exciting or invite people to the entrance. What it does is activate how excited you are about your house. By making the front door very visible and very attractive from the street, you have almost created the best possible scenario for a good first impression.’
