Even though your front door may seem like a simple part of your home, it is one that will make a big statement! Many people forget that one of the first things their guests see when approaching their home is the front door. First impressions are important; whether you’re trying to add more curb appeal to attract prospective buyers or you simply want to wow your friends and family, your front door design should be carefully thought through. Follow along with our blog to read about all the different aspects of your front door to take into consideration!
For being just one simple door, the prices people pay can be outrageous! We believe your front door should make a statement, but not for a price that breaks the bank. When doing the construction or simple replacements within your home, it is imperative that you figure out your budget. If you’re redoing multiple parts of your home, you really need to break it down and include everything that will be replaced. While it may not seem like replacing your front door will be a costly renovation, the prices can stack up. Regardless of how many other expenses are being taken out for your renovations, always keep in mind your budget and stick to it! You can find many great, unique front doors for prices that won’t make your wallet hurt.
There are many different types of material to choose from when selecting a front door. While wood is typical for many front doors, there are a variety of other, less expensive ways to make a great first impression. Aside from wood, there are doors made of steel and fiberglass that also look amazing. Many of these materials can be made to resemble wood as well. Depending on your home and the type of look you’re going for, adding a splash of color to your door is a great way to make a statement. With a color that pulls everything in the front of your house together, you are sure to wow your guests and potential buyers.
Many people like to stick with a theme throughout their home. Whether you prefer a broad style or a more focused style, you want to ensure your front door matches. People tend to forget about how important their front door is. Going through all the trouble of sticking to your preferred style is worthless when you select a front door at random. Really study the style you love and look for inspiration which includes what you’d like your front door to look like. A broad style such as modern would look amazing with a light-colored, simple front door. If you are focused on a style such as Colonial, you will want to pay attention to fine details. Using large, decorative crown frames above the door with textured panels is the perfect way to stick to your theme.
You may often overlook the fine details of your home’s front door, but that doesn’t mean other people will! Picking a front door that is stylish and eye-catching is a great way to make a statement. Whether you need to add curb appeal to draw in more buyers or you want to stun your friends and family, a creative and fine-tuned front door will do the trick!
