make your entrance a focal point by keeping your door in good condition. Regularly wash off scuffs and marks caused by everyday life, and refresh the paintwork from time to time so it always looks brand new. When updating the colour of your front door, be sure to use a highly durable paint that will specifically protect the wood. Finish off the scheme with potted plants and hanging baskets for a country cottage feel. Vary the plant and container sizes for interest, and arrange on multiple levels.
