Your front door is where your friends and neighbors come and go. You want it to look great and welcome them while adding curb appeal to your home. If you’re looking for a new entry door or just want to spruce up your current door, here are some ideas from Affordable Replacement Windows, where we also replace doors.
Entry doors are generally either fiberglass, steel, or wood but all can have many decorative elements. Choosing a new door with a window is one way to change the look of your home’s entry. Some options for windows include a small transom window at the top, several vertical windows in the upper third, glass in the top half, or even a window in the entire door. Many door manufacturers offer decorative glass as an option too.
Just like your cabinets, entry doors without windows come in many different exterior designs. The most common traditional door style is the cross style. Newer styles have different inlays and designs, some of which are simple and others highly decorative.
Color is something you can choose whether you’re buying a new door or just want to paint your existing door. Either way, you’ll want to have a color that works with the rest of the elements on your home. If your home’s exterior has lots of color already, consider a neutral that works with the existing colors. If your home is plain, don’t be afraid to go bold. Because your door is a small element of your home’s exterior, having a pop of color can be just what you need to change the look of your entire home.
Although the style and color can be seen from far away, there are some accessories that will only be noticed up close but can make a difference. Adding a doorknocker can show your personal style. Kick plates can protect the bottom of your door and add some shine. A wreath or other decoration helps you celebrate the season. There are many different ways to enhance your door’s exterior without spending much money.
