Have a tiny budget, but big plans for your home? The trick to making over your house and adding curb appeal is to invest your home improvement dollars into projects that give you the most bang for you buck. Adding some exterior door paint to your front porch can change the entire look and feel of your home's exterior, making it a great place to start. Since your front door can say a lot about the home behind it, choose from some of the most modern trends in front door paint.

Feature door. If you really want your door to pop, a feature color is the easiest and most cost-effective way. By painting your front door a bright, inviting color, you show off a bit of personality without straying too far from traditional styling. If you do decide to do a bright color, like red, vibrant green or a sunny yellow, make sure you prime well first; you wouldn't want your exterior door paint to start fading.

Patterned door. If you don't mind a less traditional approach, patterned doors show off your modern style before anyone sets foot in your home. The chevron stripe is the trendiest, most current look. Of course, since patterns are a little harder to try, you might want to enlist the help of a painting contractor to help tape off and achieve the patterned look that you're going for.

Aged door. Bringing character to your front door is best when your home already has a shabby chic look. Then you can paint the door the color of your choice and use a bit of diluted colored stain to rub down the grooves of your door for an old, weathered look. It's one way to take a stock door and make it look more custom with a minimal budget and an afternoon's worth of elbow grease.
