Your front door is one of the first things that people see when they arrive, or even pass by, your home. It sets the tone for your property, allows you to tell people about your personal style, and also provides security for your property. That’s why most people choose to invest in high-quality doors, such as those produced by Parkwood doors.
It’s a great starting point. But, to really make sure your door makes a statement you should be aware of the latest trends.
One of the most popular trends at the moment is to have an enlarged door. This isn’t possible on all houses. But, if you have a large door opening you can opt for an oversized door. It will look impressive and definitely create a positive impression.
Should your current opening be limited you may find it is possible to widen it, either to fit a larger door or simply to have small windows on each side, making it look bigger.
A very popular trend at the moment is to create a statement door colour. You can opt for a natural wood which looks great. But, if you really want to make a statement consider choosing a brighter door. It can be a wooden one that has been painted or one that has been produced in a colour you’ve specified.
You will be amazed at what colours are available and how great they can look on your front door.
You can make a statement by ensuring your door has plenty of glass. This allows light into your home, making the entrance hall brighter and more appealing. Alongside this, you can see out to check who is visiting, and you can even add in coloured glass or have specific patterns etched into them.
To help ensure your entranceway is light at all times consider adding outside lights that can frame the door. This will ensure you can see outside at any time of the day or night.
These are doors that split into two, allowing you to have the top half or the bottom half open, without the other.
Traditionally this type of door has been used at the rear of the house. However, they are becoming an increasingly popular choice for the front, where they are seen more often.
If you choose a stable or Dutch door you should ensure it has good security locks on both halves. One of the downsides of this type of door is that they are easy to get through. Having a good locking system ensures this isn’t the case.
Don’t forget, whichever door you decide to choose, it must fit with your home, the neighbourhood, and then your personality. There are plenty of options that fit the bill, all you have to do is to take a look at what’s available and find the one that you like the most. The installers will do the rest for you.
