First impressions count. These five homes all greet you with a welcoming, tidy front door, and you can guess from the entrance that the inside is probably pretty nice as well. The elements of a great front entrance are basic...

Whether small or large, fully landscaped or decorated with just a few potted plants, these entrances all have: 1) adequate lighting, 2) an brightly painted or architecturally interesting front door, 3) a clean-swept stoop, 4) plants that soften the angles of the house. If you can master these four elements, you'll have a great front door as well.
