We know you’ve all heard it before: curb appeal is everything when it comes to selling your home. Having perfectly manicured and landscaped front yards, clean windows, and fresh paint can make all the difference when prospective buyers are looking at your home both online and in person.

Curb appeal isn’t just for home sellers though, once you live in your beautiful, new (to you at least) home, you want to be proud of it, inside and out. 

Here are 14 homes for sale that take curb appeal to the next step with bright, bold front doors.
