You're not alone if you're loving Jonathan and Drew Scott's new HGTV Series Property Brothers: Forever Home. The new show centers around renovating family homes to last through all phases of life, and provides in equal parts, sentimental stories and the expected light-hearted banter of the brothers. And along the way, the duo doles out some pretty amazing home renovation advice.

On a recent episode, titled "Suburban Las Vegas Upgrade," there's one tip we can't get out of our heads: As originally reported, giving our front door an upgrade can make a giant impact — with minimal effort.

"A modern front door updates everything," Drew tells Jonathan, with writer Lisa Johnson Mandell recounting that this occurs, "as they give the house an instant face-lift by simply removing the dated, double front doors with the frilly leaded-glass window, and replacing it with more geometric doors that have a series of small, rectangular windows running down the middle." What an elegant way to enter a house, ladies and gentlemen.

As Mandell also points out, updating a front door can sometimes be costly, but it's certainly more affordable than redoing the entire exterior of your home.
