Front door help

January 9, 2013 in Design Dilemma
I want to add some details to help the place rent. Id like to do some crown molding around the front door, both inside and out. Good idea??

Great idea. Crown is always a good investment in a traditional/transitional house. Also, paint that shoe molding white to match the base trim. May also look into replacing light fixture with more up to date (inexpensive) one.

I agree with replacing the light fixture, and doing thicker moulding around the door. You can't go wrong with that. Also, I'd replace the door knob to a more decorative prominent front door handle. But it's good you have a neutral color scheme. It will appeal tomorrow renters.

As a past renter, I was more concerned out the kitchen, living room and bedroom than the front door.

Are you renting? I wouldn't add crown moulding to a rental unless you own it. You can add "details" above the door with wood scroll, etc that you can take with you.

@Darzy - we do own the house. We are renting the house out while my husband is deployed lol. I saw on Pinterest something about Faux Wainscoting, does this meaning anything to anyone?

I agree with adding some architectural moldings to add some character to the entry area.

I'm not sure I understand what kind of crown molding would go around the door on the inside and outside as you stated. We may all be jumping to a different conclusion about what you're planning to do. On the other hand, for under $100 you could do better than a builder's special light fixture and add some visual interest.

I've already put up a pic of the crown mding that goes on the inside. Below is an addition outside option.
