The old saying that first impressions count is definitely true when it comes to your home, and where do people generally approach the house for the first time? Up from the driveway to the front door, so a front door can really be crucial in making a good first impression of your home.

Investing in a new front door can sometimes transform the overall look of your home, as well as other benefits it might offer – such as better insulation and prevention of draughts. Today, with being able to browse at thousands of doors online, the choice available to us can be almost bewildering. Check out the choice of front doors and internal doors from Todd Doors to see what a huge range you can find on just one site.
But in fact, before you start narrowing down your preferences for a front door, it’s a good idea to have a think about what your property actually would look best with.

Color Matters

The color of a front door can be pretty important. You should feel free to choose a color that you like, but make sure that it is in keeping with the style of your home. For instance, a pastel color may not be ideal for a Victorian home – you should veer towards the more traditional colors like dark red or black. Similarly, a very contemporary style and color door might not suit a country cottage. You might also want to consider the neighbors’ viewpoints – if you want to be neighborly.


Get the Style Right

Then there’s the style to consider. Will your house suit a contemporary door? These doors often have bold features and designs and are often finished with imposing door furniture. Though these may look eye-catching in the shop, think about how they’d actually look on the property you own. If your home is a new-build in a modern style, then go for it, otherwise be sure that the look of the door won’t clash with the look of the house.

If you own a period home, then make sure that the style of front door you choose matches that period. For example, you don’t want an ornate Victorian style front door on a Georgian style house. And owners of country cottages need to go for more rustic style than those who live in the middle of town, where a stable door might look out of place.

Once you’ve chosen, bought and installed your front door, don’t stop there. Make the entrance to your home as welcoming as possible with flower-filled planters and hanging baskets around the door and a clear hallway behind it. You don’t want your visitors to walk up to a beautiful front door and then have to squeeze past coats, shoes and the kids’ scooters to get inside!

    I agree that good front door/porch design is key to the feel of a home. I love the 2nd picture with the French doors being the gorgeous entrance to the home 🙂
