1. Whether you use a grille door or the wooden or builder-grade door that came with your unit, give it a fresh coat of paint in a bright or eye-catching colour, like lemon yellow.


2. Display an eyecatching post box or flower box on the wall by the door.

3. Display flowers...or fruits! Check out what this guy did: He grew grapes on his own HDB corridor!


4. Display your potted plants vertically by building a rack for your pots to hang from. Better yet, add a bench where you can sit and take off your shoes, and which can also do double-duty as storage for gardening equipment.


5. You can put up your own little farm in your HDB building: Just utilise a sunny corridor and display little pots of herbs vertically via a rack or shelf. (Be sure to check with your neighbours if they are okay with it!) Check out our story on how Balan Gopal was able to fill his HDB corridor with over 200 herbs.

6. Unhappy with the builder-grade door that came with your unit? Get instructions on how to make it look like an antique or salvaged wooden door here.


7. Give your guests a warm, witty welcome with cute and humorous floor mats.


8. Make a pretty flower arrangement next to your door with colourful blooms, a jar lantern, and a chalkboard sign. (Get instructions on how to make a chalkboard sign here).


9. Here is a flower tower made from differently sized pots stacked on top of each other. Paint the pots with chalkboard paint (instructions on how to make your own here) so you can jot down greetings of welcome (and change them up depending on the occasion).


10. Have an old pair of Wellies that have seen better days? Use them as a plant receptacle, and let them stand sentry in front of your door.
