Your front door is basically your first impression on guests and visitors to your home, which is why we’re rounding up some of our favorite summery decor ideas for the oft-neglected space. Browse through the photos for inspiration for your own home, or make up stories about the people who live behind these doors. We’re pretty sure we want to be friends with all of them based on what their doors are saying.

1. Horizontal Windows: A decidedly modern take on window panels, this door is only made better by the bright orange hue. (via Houzz)

2. Patterned Pots: One of the fastest ways to make your home stand out is to add patterned planters on your front porch or stoop. (via Dimples and Tangles)

3. Flower Buckets: It’s not so much the yellow door (though we love that, too), but the silver buckets filled with flowering plants that have us swooning over this entry. (via Cape 27)

4. Statement-Making Neon: Watch out world, all of us at Brit HQ are soon to have neon pink front doors after seeing this stunner. (via mscott218 on Flickr)

5. Colorful Storm Door: While storm doors are practical, they are often quite ugly. Solve that problem by painting a wooden one to match your solid door. They’ll blend seamlessly together. (via Bright Bold Beautiful)

6. Bright Cobalt: This shade stands out without being too non-traditional in case you have a persnickety homeowner’s association in your neighborhood. (via Houzz)

7. Circular Windows: Another modern take on the windowed door, we love that the windows almost look like polka dots. (via Kropat Interior Design)

8. Jumbo House Numbers: Type-lovers these are the house numbers for you. So big and bold you can probably see them from space, or an airplane at the very least. (via My Sweet Savannah)

9. Glass & Wrought Iron Door: From the firm’s Cat Mountain Residence this wrought iron and glass door is sophisticated and helps light up the neighborhood. (via Cornerstone Architects)

10. Summer Wreaths: Wreaths aren’t just for the holidays. We love the contrast of this bright yellow forsythia wreath on the robin’s egg blue door. (via DIY Sisters)

11. Mix Materials: If your house is made of stone or has a stone façade, try an unfinished wooden door for a good contrast. It will seem more welcoming to guests. (via Houzz)

12. Flower Basket: We love this May-Day-inspired door. And it’s easy enough to change out the flowers for each season. (via blueeyed_posey on Flickr)

13. Chevron Texture: Why not welcome guests with a beautiful chevron-engraved door? Plus, you can order the house number decals through the same link! (via Leen the Graphics Queen)

14. Pantone Slide Stained Glass: We’re suckers for anything Pantone, so it’s no surprise that this stained glass door made of Pantone slides is one of our favorites. (via Armin Blasbichler Studio)

15. Chinoiserie Door: Don’t shy away from pattern on your front door. This DIY from Design*Sponge is sure to make your entry stand out. (via Design*Sponge)
