Your front door is one of the first things people see when they come to your home, and often can be a neglected area. Replacing your exterior door is a fast and inexpensive way to improve your entryway and curb appeal.
Many new front door styles are available, however try to pick one that compliments your exterior. If your foyer is dark, try adding a window to your front door - it will make the whole entrance feel bigger and more welcoming. Pick a door that is appropriate for the price of your house - as an idea it should be no more than half of one percent of the total cost of your home.
A fresh coat of paint gives you the biggest bang for your buck. Choose a bright colour that will make your front entrance pop. If you tire of the colour it is easy and inexpensive to change.
The door handle makes a visual impact and is vital to the security of your home. You can choose from lever handles, pull handles, latches, door closers, and keyless security locks. Be sure to buy a good quality solid brushed real stainless steel door handle to avoid rust.
Light fixtures are another important accessory that will make your front entrance go from ordinary to extraordinary. Try using a couple of outdoor LED wall lights to illuminate and show off that new front door.
To finish off the look buy a couple of planters to be placed either side of the door. Finally buy a nice new welcoming doormat to be positioned front and center.
