I think a metal kickplate across the bottom always looks nice on the front door and a full length glass storm-door is great, too. A seasonal wreath on the door, a welcome mat on the porch and you’re all set.
I really like all the ideas – the vinyl “Welcome” is especially nice. No one EVER comes in my front door so never sees the wemcome mat. But the sign they can see.
For fast cheap color on the front door, use vinyl wall paper. Okay for holiday too. Nice Red Door for winter, Blue for summer for those os us with pretty boring color scheme.
