After: The porch's new color scheme pops against the home's newly painted white brick, thanks to the one-two punch of an eye-catching door and stenciled floor. Chrome accessories—door hardware, ceiling light, and extra-large house numbers—round out the look.
There's no second chance at a first impression, so when the exterior of your house is lackluster, it can drag the whole place down. Once Dana and Brooks Tucker saw what a difference a coat of white paint made on the tan brick of their Nashville 1980s-era ranch, they knew it was time to update the front porch with a new look, too. First up, they removed storm doors that obscured the paneled detailing on their double front doors. Dana painted the doors bright green for a crisp contrast with the white brick, then installed new chrome door hardware, including a hexagonal knob.
