First impressions count and your front door is the key to adding that all-important curb appeal to your home. From welcoming guests to conveying your own personal style, a few careful touches can make all the difference. So take a step back and imagine the view of your entrance from the curb. There are plenty of ways to make your entry stand out with style-here are some of the most popular.
Entry Door Color
This is the easiest way to give your door a new look. Most homeowners love choosing colors. Hard wearing door paints are now available in every color of the rainbow so you can experiment with an understated neutral, a soft pastel or a daring bold hue. When you feel the need for a change, you can simply paint it in another shade and it’ll refresh the whole facade of your home! If you have an exterior palette in mind, consider a complementary tone for the opposite side of the color wheel for the door. If you go bright and vibrant or deep and subdued with color it will immediately draw focus to the door. If you prefer the look of wood doors remember wood comes in its own rainbow of color. Warm yellow, orange and red tones are common and naturally pair nicely with cool backgrounds. The brown tones are great neutrals or you may prefer a dark stain. Just try to make the door the darkest or brightest part of the entrance so it sets apart.
Entry Door Uniqueness
Unless you have shopped for a front door recently you will be very surprised by the diverse choices of the doors today. You can get lost comparing the different products, technology and aesthetics of the architectural styles and finishes. Modern finishes can dress up traditional architecture well but the the more ornate designs of traditional doors can clash with a sleeker modern home. So remember you need to know the style of home you are working with. Contemporary style tends to be very popular today, there are now crisp and simple doors designed for older home styles and super bold options for the other end of the spectrum. The steel atrium door is one of the latest trends. The black steel grid and glass works to update nearly any style.
Entry Door Glass
If you want glass to be the highlight of the entry and have your heart set on on a type you should know that glass and lites have to work together. Some patterns require large lites, while other adapt well to lites large and small. Go big if you want the glass to be the main appeal. To create a grand entrance, enhance the scale of your front door by surrounding it with glass panels on the sides and top. For a contemporary look that enhances your home’s architecture and lets plenty of light into the interior, look for a modern wood and glass panel front door. Worried about privacy? Choose a glass that’s frosted, etched or has some type of design that obscures what’s going on inside.
