The saying goes that first impressions matter the most. So, the front door is the place to start in terms of setting the tone and character of a home.
The front door may not be the top priority when renovating a house’s exterior. But they can increase your home’s curb appeal.
Revamped Design and Furniture
Installing quality doors can be the easiest way to revive the appearance of a tired exterior and add a touch of uniqueness to your property.
To upgrade your front door, one of the quickest fixes is to simply ask your contractor to paint it. Choose an exterior paint for the type of door; paints and primers are available for the surfaces of steel, fiberglass and wooden doors. For an average door, about one quarter of the paint should be done. Contrast is essential. Choose a bold color that stands out from the rest of the house.
Metal Front Door
You can also consider a metal front door for an artisanal look that is both warm and contemporary. Black steel is popular with the industrial trend, although the front doors of copper and stainless steel will always be fashionable.
The modern pivot door is another trend in the door. The look features a large-scale, floor-to-ceiling door that pivots from a wall-mounted hinge on an axis instead of opening and closing. The front door pivot is perfect if a door jamb is not possible or if the door is very heavy.
