Whether you’ve just given the exterior of your property a full makeover or you’re simply looking to add a new twist to your entryway, having an impressive and elegant front door can make all the difference in the minds of visitors.
In this blog post, we will take a look at how your front door choice can really turn your entryway around, add a splash of character and leave your visitors wishing they too had a door like yours.
You’ve put so much effort into making sure that the interior of your home is gorgeous and inviting. You’ve mowed the front lawn and you’ve kept your driveway pristine and free of weeds. But all your efforts could soon go to waste if visitors are left with a negative first impression before they’ve even walked through the front door.
Selecting a sophisticated and modern composite door can remove that worry in an instant. Putting a bit of thought into your front door choice will pay dividends in the long run, as a welcoming entrance will instantly put your visitors in a good frame of mind about your home.
When choosing your front door, remember to think about what signal it sends your visitors as they wait on the doorstep. Instead of choosing a door with no character, choose one with a solid frame, a splash of colour and a touch of class.
Nobody wants to look like a snob, and that’s why a front door with a refined, elegant aesthetic is ideal. Don’t risk looking flashy with a garish, loud hue. Instead, opt for a front door with a neutral or understated colour, and ensure it fits the surroundings.
The key to ensuring your front door looks classy and timeless is to integrate it with the local area. For example, if you live in a period property it’s wise to select a door with a heritage aesthetic to match the local architecture – and to ensure you don’t stand out for the wrong reasons!
That doesn’t mean you can’t add elements of modern design or a stamp of your home’s distinctive character, such as an elegant chrome doorbell or knocker. By combining the best of door design both old and new, your home will look welcoming and inviting the whole year round.
Traditional, cottage and contemporary ranges offer front doors designed with timeless elegance in mind. Take a look today and find the front door that’s perfect for you.
Your front door is the main point of access to your home, but it can also be the most vulnerable. And while you want to give off an inviting vibe, you only want to welcome your friends, family and loved ones – not unscrupulous characters like thieves or robbers.
For that reason, it’s important to ensure that you select a modern door with a basic layer of security. Opting for a flimsy door, even if you like the look of it, is a recipe for disaster in the long run. You may live in a safe or quiet area, but the need to protect against opportunistic burglars requires security to be embedded in your home’s design.
