Your front door is the first thing people will notice when they visit your property, therefore, it needs to be suitable for the surroundings. Where first impressions are imperative, an external door has to be hard-wearing because it’s susceptible to severe weather conditions. If your door isn’t durable the weather could damage it, making your property look unfinished or run down. Whether it’s your front door, back door or French doors, an external door shouldn’t compromise your needs for style or design.
When installing an external door, you should look for something stylish and timeless, you may want to consider the following trends:
- Modern handles and letterboxes
If your door is relatively modern already but you want to upgrade it, you could change the colour of the letterbox to make it stand out or maybe go for a different type of letterbox; if it was horizontal previously, you could incorporate a vertical one to create a unique finish to your door.
Black doors have never been out of fashion, so if your front door is black, you could enhance the overall appearance by changing the colour of the handle or installing a new door knocker or doorbell!
- Bigger is better
You can make your home stand out from the rest by fitting an external door. It goes without saying that if your front door is immense, it’ll be somewhat more eye-catching. When choosing an external door, you should take into consideration the style of the property and the size in order to make sure that the door sits well. For instance, if your property is relatively small, a big door will look out of place.
There should be a flow from start to finish. Starting from the front door right the way through the house to the back door or French patio doors, the doors should be consistent – keeping to a theme, traditional or contemporary, bright or wooden this offers a more professional finish to your home!
- French doors
